No, you do not need to be home. We do ask that any pets remain inside the home during the estimated window of arrival to ensure the safety of our technicians.

Do you have a Guarantee?

Yard sprays typically last on average between 21-28 days under normal conditions – we set up “Recurring Sprays” approximately every 3 weeks. The product is applied liberally and begins to work immediately – it kills all of the mosquitos that it hits. It leaves a residual effect that will continue to kill and repel mosquitos after the application — it will greatly reduce the mosquito population in that immediate area. If you are having a Party or Event, we recommend spraying one to two days prior to the event to get the most benefit. Every situation can be different, the environment and surroundings will vary with each yard and with each season. We always tell people that you may still see mosquitoes, but it would be considerably worse if you hadn’t gotten the spraying. Most people usually get the desired results, but since a mosquito can fly up to 1 ½ miles per day and since the yard is in “Open Air” with no invisible barrier stopping it, mosquitos can always fly easily where you are – even right after we have sprayed.
