How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?
Depending on the type of mosquito treatment used, they are typically effective for one to two months. The weather, environment, and the mosquito population size can all affect how long mosquito treatment stays effective. When you work with a professional mosquito control expert, they will determine when your North Carolina home or property needs to be retreated for mosquitoes.
The goal is to ensure your yard is mosquito-proof throughout the entire mosquito season, which is why multiple treatments may be required.

How Often Should I Treat My Yard For Mosquitoes?
In between professional treatment, you should still keep an eye on your yard to look for signs of mosquito activity. In addition, practice the following routine to ensure mosquitoes stay away:
- Inspect your yard every week during mosquito season to look for signs of activity.
- Tip over any containers that have accumulated standing or stagnant water.
- When spending time outside, use a fan to discourage mosquitoes from gathering.
Mosquito Treatment Timeline
Mosquito treatment should start in the very early spring months, which is typically early April here in North Carolina. After the initial treatment, your professional mosquito control expert will work with you to determine when you may need to be re-treated. This could be anywhere from 4-6 weeks after the initial repellent application. If during the first month you notice the repellent is not effective, it’s important to always reach out to your exterminator for assistance.
