Treat yourself to a mosquito-free summer

Mosquito control is applied by spraying a fine mist treatment into and onto the foliage on your property, around your house including decks, up into eaves and pool areas creating a mosquito-free barrier. This treatment is extremely effective and may last anywhere up to 3 months*.  (Top-up treatment is recommended for 4-6 weeks).
