We use 2 different mosquito control products for your lawn depending on the situation.

Option 2: Our natural formula* alternative contains a concentrated 1.25% Garlic oil that mosquitoes are over ten thousand times more sensitive to then humans!  The odour to humans starts to dissipate within 24-48 hours, but the mosquitoes still know!

Why Should I Worry About Mosquitoes in Ontario?

Mosquito Control in Toronto, ON and the Greater Toronto Area by LawnSavers

You’re not welcome Mosquito!

Backyard mosquito control is important to consider because mosquitoes in Ontario, Canada are known to carry the West Nile Virus which is transmitted to animals and humans when they bite you to take your blood.  Ticks are another health issue as they are well-known to carry the bacteria that can cause Lyme Disease.  We can help with those too!

Read more about other known vectors that keep mosquitoes top of mind but are not yet recognized as a serious threat in colder climates like Canada such as Zika Virus, Chikungunya and Dengue.  Maclean’s magazine published an article in February 2016 stating that there is not enough study done to know if mosquitoes found in Southern Ontario can carry the Zika Virus!

How to Prevent Mosquitos in Your Ontario Yard

Professional Membership in the American Mosquito Association

LawnSavers: Member of the AMCA

LawnSavers is a part of the American Mosquito Control Association.  We Encourage You to Remember the 3 D’s to Mosquito Prevention:

  • DUMP and DRAIN: Eliminate standing water where mosquitoes can breed
  • DUSK and DAWN:  Stay indoors when mosquitoes are most active in your yard
  • DEFEND: Prevent mosquito bites by wearing approved insect repellents

Backyard Mosquito Prevention Tips you can use:

  • Empty birdbaths (mosquito larvae only need 1 cup of water to live)
  • Check your eaves-troughs and gutters (water standing in gutters out of sight is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes
  • Sandboxes, often have liners that trap water (poke holes in the liner or allow for drainage)
  • Check your tarps, If they are sagging and collecting water, you have a perfect spot for mosquitoes to multiply in your yard
  • Kids toys left around the yard very often collect just enough water to breed mosquitoes.
  • Frisbees and sporting goods are big culprits to catch water.
  • Planters often come with water saucers underneath them that collect water

Mosquito Spray Treatment FAQ

How long does it take to do the treatment?

Most properties in Ontario take about 10-20 minutes to treat. Larger properties can take longer depending on the amount and density of shrubbery.  We treat starting from the house out towards the yard, spraying under decks, siding, into shrubs and trees and other natural mosquito resting spots.  We avoid flowers to protect the bees.  We inspect the property for other mosquito hangouts and traveling points to make sure we are extra thorough.  The result is a barrier of protection around your yard.

Is every property in Ontario a good candidate to be sprayed for mosquitoes?

Unfortunately no.  Mosquitoes have very specific habits during the day and night, including how they travel to a host for their blood meal.  To provide value in our service, your yard should have a moderate amount of vegetation and dark hiding spaces like decks or trees.  Not every property is a good candidate. Call us and we can evaluate your property over the phone using special satellite imagery.

How does the 100% organic product work?

Uses concentrated garlic oil.  This treatment tends to be a shorter control period, and is more of a repellent than mosquito killer.

Does it have a strong odour?

Garlic Oil has a very strong odour for the first few hours up to a day or two, before disappearing altogether.  The traditional spray has no detectable odour whatsoever.

Do you spray the grass?

No mosquitoes don’t tend to congregate in grass that is mowed regularly.  They are attracted to tall grass usually over 10-12″ in length that you would see in an unkempt field. Mosquitoes love damp and shady areas.

Do I need to be home when the mosquito spray treatment is being completed?

Nope, just please leave the pets inside.

How does the Barrier Treatment for mosquitoes work?

Mosquitoes work a lot different than most people think.  They tend to avoid the wind and hides in plants and trees during the day.  During the day they tend to feed on plant nectar. They come out at dusk when the wind dies down looking for a blood meal (females). Mosquitoes search out the scent of people but they tend to hop from place to place (normally at least 4-5 times) before finding an animal or person.  when they land on these leaf or other surfaces, they will come into contact with the product that will destroy them on contact.

Are your lawn care technicians licensed?

Yes, we hold a Ministry of Environment Operators Licence and an additional license classification called “Mosquito/Biting Flies” which governs the use of exterminating adult and larvae form of mosquitoes on land and water.

What types of mosquitoes do we have in Southern Ontario?

There are 2 main genera called ‘Aedes’ and ‘Culex’ that live in Ontario.  Both contribute to the almost 3500 species of mosquitoes. Aedes are known to be aggressive day biters, while Culex mainly come out after dusk and bite through the night.

TRIVIA: What is the ‘bump’ called that is caused by a mosquito bite?

It is called a “wheal”.  After a mosquito bites you, they leave a protein under the skin that activates ‘histamines’ in your body that try to fight it off.  Mosquitoes can easily insert there proboscis several times into your skin before they find a suitable capillary under the skin in which to extract a blood meal.

*The label for Dragnet (Permethrins) states “CAUTION”; this indicates a product that is of low to very low toxicity to humans- Registration under PMRA #24175
The 1.25% Garlic oil registered under PMRA #30680
