    • How much does it cost?
      How much does it cost? The cost of your mosquito control services from NJ Mosquito Patrol may vary depending on the size and the density of foliage in your yard. For this reason, we recommend getting in touch with NJ Mosquito Patrol for a custom estimate. Fill out an online contact form to learn more.
    • Will the treatment harm my children or pets?
      No. The products used by NJ Mosquito Patrol are environmentally friendly for both humans and their pets. You can resume activity around your yard just 30 minutes after our application is applied.
    • What are ticks?
      Ticks are not insects. In fact, they are arachnids, which means they are more closely related to spiders than bugs like mosquitoes and fleas. Adult ticks have eight legs, while insects have just six. Additionally, ticks are ectoparasites, meaning they must have a host to survive and reproduce. The tick life cycle progresses from egg, larvae, nymph, and finally, adult stage. At NJ Mosquito Patrol, we can get rid of ticks at any stage of their life cycle.
    • Does anyone need to be home?
      No one needs to be present at the time of your application. However, you're welcome to stick around and watch from your windows! You'll be able to get back outside within 30 minutes of our treatment.
    • Will rain affect my results?
      Rain and water should not affect a dry 14-Day Barrier Spray. The bonding process can occur within 10 to 30 minutes, ensuring your yard has complete protection against these pests. However, if you feel heavy rainfall has affected your spray's performance, please get in touch with NJ Mosquito Patrol for another application.
    • How long does the application process take?
      Our mosquito barrier spray treatments take 10 to 20 minutes. People and pets can safely return to your yard approximately 30 minutes after treatment. Please keep in mind that your average treatment time will depend on your lawn's square footage and habitat area.
    • Can mosquitoes avoid the barrier spray?
      Yes, it is possible for mosquitoes to miraculously avoid contact with our foliar spray, although this is incredibly rare. Most mosquitoes will succumb to our spray in 24 hours. Even if a few pests manage to survive our application, this service will tremendously reduce your mosquito population for a total of two weeks.
    • How long does your mosquito barrier spray last?

      The Barrier Spray from NJ Mosquito Patrol can keep mosquitoes away for up to 14 days. The effects are nearly instantaneous. Our spray destroys adult mosquitoes and ticks within just 24 hours of application and will remain on the foliage around your yard for up to two weeks. Mosquitoes from other areas, including your next-door neighbors, will be destroyed if they attempt to feed, breed, or land on your treated vegetation.
