Summertime means enjoying your yard with the family. You need to prep your property for barbecuing, playing in the sprinkler, and lounging in the sun. As you hose down the patio furniture and sweep off the deck, you’ll probably be greeted by another beacon of warm weather outdoor time: Mosquitoes. When mosquitoes are eating you alive, it’s tough to enjoy your yard! Read on to learn about Giroud’s effective Mosquito Control Programs!
Giroud offers 2 types of Mosquito Control
- Traditional: A highly effective program, our insecticide treatments have staying power to control adults, larvae, and eggs. Once dried, treated areas are safe for people and pets.
- 100% Organic: Our special 100% Organic formula gets the job done with essential oils including peppermint and cedar oils which are natural repellents. Treatments are safe for children, pets, and pollinators like bees and butterflies.

Here’s how Giroud’s Mosquito Control Works
- Risk Assessment: Your Giroud Arborist will do a comprehensive inspection of your property. He will identify mosquito hot spots and develop a customized Mosquito Control Program.
- Best Timing for Treatment: Mosquito populations skyrocket as the weather gets warmer. Giroud recommends treatments every 3 weeks, especially during the warmest months. Additional treatments may be required for properties with unusually high mosquito populations.
- Complete Mosquito Control: To be successful, mosquitoes must be controlled where they hide. They love any dark, moist environment or dense vegetation. Every time Giroud visits your property for a treatment, your Giroud Technician will walk your entire property to identify and treat all of the mosquito hot spots. We use a two-step approach:
- Perimeter sprays: Mosquitoes do not use lawns as resting places. Instead, they look for sheltered areas that are out of direct sunlight. Your Giroud Technician will apply treatment along the edges of your property to create a mosquito barrier.
- Hot Spots: Mosquitoes must be controlled where they congregate. Of course, the most important control points are in the outdoor spaces where you live, eat, and play. Each application will cover these Hot Spots including foliage, vegetation areas, mulch beds, buildings, porches, eaves, decks, and patios.
