Local Experts You Can Count On

Answering Your Questions About Mosquito & Tick Control Services in Birmingham, AL

It’s not your imagination—the prevalence of mosquitoes has actually jumped in the Birmingham area in recent years. More mosquito days used to mean more time spent indoors, but with help from our expert team, you can fight back and enjoy your yard again. We’re here to answer your most frequently asked questions about these notorious pests so you can make the right decision for your family!

What Will Kill Mosquitoes in Your Yard?

A combination of a powerful mosquito-fogging solution and a targeted strategy is your best bet. Mosquito fogging is different from DIY solutions because it mixes a highly effective insecticide with water inside a specialized machine to create a fine droplet mist. This mist, or fog, clings to the leaves that mosquitoes call home, killing any present mosquitoes, their eggs, and any new pests that land there.

How Long Does Mosquito Fogging Last?

Your mosquito treatment will last up to 21 days, which is the average life cycle of a mosquito. Because the fog sticks to leaves—and the feet of any mosquitoes that land there—you’ll be thoroughly protected during that time. 

However, during periods of intense rain and heat, your yard may develop puddles of standing water where mosquitoes can breed. If this happens, just give Birmingham Mosquito Control a call, and we’ll come out to spray your yard again for free. That’s our Fight the Bite guarantee!

Does Anything Really Work to Keep Mosquitoes Away?

Regular, professional mosquito spraying is a highly effective way to keep pests at bay. The treatment works best when repeated on a 21-day basis, which is the mosquito’s average reproduction cycle. 

In Alabama, no mosquito company can guarantee 100% eradication of every single pest. Mosquitoes are always breeding somewhere nearby, and they will continue to try to make a home of your yard. However, with specialized mosquito control solutions, you absolutely can prevent your family from being bitten and enjoy your yard to the fullest.

Can You Get a Tick From Your Lawn?

Yes, ticks are attracted to tall grass, weeds, and low shrubs, which are all common lawn elements. They also love gardens and areas of wooded underbrush around your yard. Even the most manicured lawns can be susceptible to ticks, so it’s important to check yourself, your children, and your pets frequently.

How Do You Get Rid of Ticks in the Yard?

The best way to get rid of ticks in your yard is routine, professional tick spraying. At Birmingham Mosquito Control, we use a specialized fogging machine that sprays insecticide as a fine mist onto the areas of your yard where ticks are most likely to hide. We perform this service at the same time as your mosquito treatment to ensure no gaps in your protection against these disease-carrying pests.

When Should I Spray for Ticks and Mosquitoes in Alabama?

Ticks and mosquitoes both come out of their dormant stage with warm weather. In Alabama, that means we could start seeing these biting pests as early as March and into October or longer. We recommend starting a mosquito and/or tick control program in March to prevent them from establishing a presence in your yard.
