Chemical mosquito sprays can repel these pesky bugs, but may cause skin irritation in children or to those with more sensitive skin.

Summer evenings should be spent enjoying the backyard – barbecues, playing with the kids, or just relaxing. But those pesky mosquitoes always seem to ruin the fun. Their buzzing and itchy bites can drive you insane! Naturally, you want to protect your family, but slathering everyone in mosquito spray feels questionable. Those chemicals on your skin, especially on the little ones, just don’t seem ideal. 

Mosquito spray can work well, but there’s a better way to keep the mosquitos at bay without the constant need for repellents. Let the experts at Crusader Mosquito Control help you reclaim your outdoor space! Contact us for a free mosquito repellent yard treatment quote.

The Dilemma of Mosquito Sprays

It’s a fact: mosquitos aren’t just a nuisance, they can carry dangerous diseases like West Nile Virus and Zika. Protecting yourself and your family is crucial. When it comes to mosquito repellents, the CDC generally recommends two primary ingredients: DEET and picaridin. They’re considered the most effective options for keeping the bugs at bay.

However, DEET comes with some drawbacks. It can cause skin irritation, and there are concerns about its safety for young children. You usually need a high concentration for it to be truly effective, which can amplify these issues.  Picaridin is often seen as a milder alternative, but it’s not perfect for everyone either. Some people might experience skin sensitivity with picaridin as well.

The bottom line: While these repellents certainly have their place, relying on them as your sole protection–especially when having to constantly apply them to your skin– might not be the most comfortable or ideal solution.

Why Yard Sprays Might Be a Better Option

What if instead of focusing on repelling mosquitos from your skin, you could treat the source of the problem – your yard. Yard mosquito sprays offer a proactive solution, working to reduce the mosquito population in the surrounding areas of your home. Think of them like a protective force field for your outdoor space.

The benefits are undeniable. Yard sprays protect your entire outdoor living area, so you and your family can enjoy yourselves without constantly worrying about bites.  Plus, it reduces the need for constant repellent application, a huge win for those with sensitive skin or young children who might not react well to the chemicals in traditional bug sprays.

Of course, there are potential concerns: the safety of the chemicals and their environmental impact. This is why it’s important to explore yard spray options carefully and consider hiring a professional pest control service for optimal safety and results.

Understanding Yard Sprays for Mosquitoes

There are different types of yard sprays available, ranging from natural options to more potent chemical-based formulas. It’s essential to do your research and weigh the pros and cons of each type.  Remember, safety should always be a top priority. Hiring a licensed pest control professional ensures the correct product is selected and applied responsibly. They can tailor a treatment plan specifically for your yard and mosquito situation.

Protect Your Family’s Health – Mosquito Spray for Your Yard

While traditional mosquito repellents have their uses, yard sprays offer a potentially safer and more convenient solution for long-term mosquito control.  They protect your entire outdoor space, minimizing the need for those skin-applied chemicals. If you’re tired of battling mosquitos and want to reclaim your yard, it’s time to consider a yard spray treatment.
