Pest Control for Mosquito


We understand that mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they are complex creatures with behaviours that can impact the comfort and health of your outdoor environments. Mosquitoes are not only persistent pests but also potential carriers of diseases such as West Nile, making effective control essential.

Our monthly mosquito control programs allow you to enjoy the best of the season’s warm weather by reducing the mosquito population on your property. Our trained and licensed technicians target the areas of your property where mosquitoes live, hide and breed.

Our season long approach begins in May and continues through to September with monthly applications that keep you protected all summer. Mosquitoes are the worst kind of uninvited guests, that’s why we also offer one-time knockdown treatments for your outdoor events.

Mosquitoes typically breed in stagnant water and can develop from egg to adult in as little as a week. They are most active during dawn and dusk, although some species are daytime feeders. Understanding the biology and behaviour of mosquitoes can significantly enhance control strategies by targeting them at various stages of their life cycle and during peak activity times.

Mosquito season typically begins in the spring as temperatures start to rise and consistently stay above 10 degrees Celsius. This is usually around mid to late April. The season peaks through the warm and humid summer months and extends into early fall, usually tapering off by late September or early October as the temperatures begin to drop. The peak activity for mosquitoes is generally in June and July, which coincides with rainier periods that provide ideal breeding conditions for mosquitoes.

Identify & Eliminate

At Skedaddle Pest Control, we start by conducting a thorough property inspection to identify the hotspots where mosquitoes breed and thrive. Using specialized techniques, we target these areas to disrupt the mosquito life cycle. Our treatments are designed to treat mosquitoes before they become a nuisance.

Homeowner Tips:

  • Regularly drain standing water from flower pots, buckets, barrels, and cans.
  • Check gutters for clogs that might trap water and clear them out.
  • Cover water storage containers to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs.

Clean & Control

Our trained technicians apply safe and targeted treatments to mosquito hotspots around your property. Homeowners can maximize the effectiveness of our treatments by maintaining a clean property that discourages mosquito breeding. While visiting your property our team will advise on strategies you can use to ensure the best results for the season.

Homeowner Tips:

  • Keep your yard well-trimmed and free from overgrowth where mosquitoes like to rest.
  • Dispose of debris or piles of leaves where water can collect and offer a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • Encourage natural predators like birds and bats by installing birdhouses or bat houses in your yard.

Monitor & Protect

To ensure long-lasting relief from mosquitoes, Skedaddle Pest Control implements an ongoing monitoring and protection strategy. Our monthly services through the mosquito season allow us to revisit treated areas to assess the efficacy of our interventions and apply protective barriers to prevent future infestations, adapting our approach based on seasonal trends and your specific needs.

Homeowner Tips:

  • Use mosquito repellent when spending extended periods outdoors.
  • Install screens on windows and doors to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
  • Consider using fans in outdoor areas; the air movement can help keep mosquitoes away.
