Going to bat against your mosquitoes!
Tired of annoying and dangerous mosquitoes ruining your summer nights?
Take back control of your outdoor summer enjoyment!
The team at Home Run Pest and Termite Control are experts in the extermination and prevention of mosquitoes. We use highly effective mosquito control products proven to quickly knock down mosquito populations around your home and prevent new mosquitoes from nesting in your landscape and around your home. This greatly reduces the odds of being bitten while enjoying your summer evenings outdoors. Our skilled and experienced team members use misters to apply the product into landscape areas along with eves, overhangs, front entries, patio areas and wooden fence lines. This eliminates resting areas for mosquitoes.
Mosquito Prevention Tips
Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, puddles, ponds and creek beds. They will also establish breeding grounds in abandoned pools. During the recession, many homes with pools sat unattended. These pools attracted mosquito colonies and the occurrences of West Nile Virus increased.
- Eliminate standing water in low spots, ditches, gutters and similar areas
- Empty receptacles that collect water (bird baths and plant saucers)
- Reduce breeding sites by keeping grass mowed
- Mosquito netting/screens can be used to provide mosquito-free areas
Mosquitoes are most active during sunrise and sunset. Of course, during a Texas summer, these are the best times to enjoy your yard. If mosquitoes are encroaching on your outdoor time, call the experts at Home Run Pest and Termite Control today!

A typical treatment will average about 20 minutes. Larger yards may take longer to treat. Each treatment lasts about 30 days, at which time our team will be scheduled to treat your yard again.
Not typically. Mosquitoes do not usually seek shelter in the grass. We target the areas where mosquitoes will be resting. The most common areas to find mosquitoes during the day include: the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks and in damp shady areas of the property. We do recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season. If you have a special event coming up, like a wedding or outdoor party, we can spray the grass where your guests will be.
Our treatment can help with fleas, ticks and some flies but we are targeting mosquitoes. We do offer a wide range of additional pest control services.
What chemicals are being used in my yard and are they safe? What about for plants, ponds, pets, and kids?
Our main barrier spray chemical is a synthetic form of pyrethrum called a pyrethroid. We spray this chemical on shrubs, low lying trees, your foundation, mulch beds, etc. All chemicals we use are EPA approved. The form of pyrethrum we use most is called Permethrin. Widely used in shampoos, outdoor clothing and protection for pets, it is a synthetic insecticide with a long history of safety. A risk/benefit balancing analysis conducted by the EPA saw the benefits of Permethrin dramatically outweighing the risks. In a comparative test with DEET, when put directly on the skin, typically less than 1% of active Permethrin ingredient is absorbed into the body; DEET can be absorbed at over 20 times that rate.
If you have a pond or vegetable garden, please let us know so that we can customize your treatment plan.
You, your children and your pets should not be outside during the application of the spray treatment, but you may return to your outdoor fun after allowing 30 minutes for the treatment to dry.
Does anyone need to be home when the yard is treated? How will I know if the treatment was done if I’m not home?
As long as your gate is unlocked and your pets are inside, our technician can treat. Our trained professionals will obtain any information pertinent to your location (i.e. locked gate) when you sign up. Your technician will leave a door hanger upon completion of your treatment so you will know your yard has been serviced. Information on this door hanger will include your date and time of service as well as any comments and helpful hints the technician may have to help you keep your yard as uninviting as possible for mosquitoes, ticks and other pests.
As long as your yard has had adequate time to dry after the application of your treatment (approximately 30 minutes), rain should not impact the effectiveness of your service. However, our 100% Mosquito Control Guarantee ensures that if the quality of your barrier spray service is affected by rain, we will return to your yard to ensure you are mosquito free until your next scheduled service.
Each property is unique and we customize each barrier spray application to successfully treat your mosquito problem. We price our applications based on the size and density of foliage of your property and the amount of chemical that we will need to use. You can contact us any time for a free quote.
Our barrier sprays are a great solution for many commercial businesses such as restaurants with patios, parks, campgrounds, public pools and playgrounds, sports fields, daycares, outdoor wedding venues, schools and more.
