Is Spraying For Mosquitoes Safe For My Health?

When the weather is nice, there’s nothing better than stepping out of the house to enjoy nature right outside your door. However, a swarm of mosquitoes and critters on your lawn can quickly ruin the experience. No one likes mosquito bites, especially since they pose significant health risks.

Spraying for mosquitoes is an effective way to rid your home and outdoor living areas of these pesky insects. Unfortunately, these sprays don’t just eliminate mosquitoes. They can be harmful to native pollinators such as butterflies and bees, and can even pose a risk to pets.

As such, it’s only natural that you would be concerned about the health impacts (if any) of spraying for mosquitoes on your lawn. Here’s what you need to know.

Is it safe for humans?

The safety of spraying your lawn for mosquitoes depends on the specific chemicals being used and the precautions taken during the application process.

Some chemicals, such as Pyrethroids used in mosquito sprays can be harmful to human health, especially if they are not applied correctly or if they are overused. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can cause a range of problems, from skin and eye irritation to more serious conditions like respiratory problems, neurological damage, and cancer.

The good news is many mosquito control products on the market today are designed to be safe for human use when used as directed. These products typically contain lower concentrations of active ingredients and are formulated to break down quickly in the environment, reducing the risk of exposure to humans, pets, and other non-target organisms.

Our Organic Mosquito Control Plan

At Andora Lawn Care, we’ve gone a step further by making sure our mosquito and tick removal treatments are 100% organic and therefore safe for your home and outdoor space.

The best part? The fact that the treatment is organic does not diminish its effectiveness in any way. Once applied by our lawn care technicians, the treatment kills mosquitoes and ticks on contact and creates a force field around your lawn to continually repel them for weeks.

What’s more, because of their organic nature, our mosquito treatments don’t require a lengthy waiting period. Usually, a few hours after application and you and your family can already step outside and enjoy your outdoor living spaces.

On average, a single application is effective for four weeks or longer. No annoying mosquito bites, no tick infestations, and none of the resulting dangers that these pests carry. Our organic mosquito control plan involves six seasonal applications from April – September to ensure a mosquito-free outdoor space year-round.
