How Often Should Treatments Be Done?
Here in Alabama, you will definitely need to treat for mosquitos more frequently because of the heat, humidity, and rainfall. Mosquitos thrive in areas with standing water, plenty of shade, and warmer temperatures. We recommend treating for them from the time the temperatures start rising (March or April) all the way through the warmer months (sometimes as late as November).
