Houston Exterminator: Mosquito Control Services
Not only are mosquitoes a considerable nuisance, but they can also carry diseases making mosquito bites dangerous. At ABC, we take mosquito extermination pest control very seriously. ABC uses an environmentally friendly, pet friendly, and green system to protect you and your family against mosquitoes called The Mosquito Larvicide Station (MLS). Exterminate mosquito populations by 95%, allowing you to enjoy outdoor spaces.
Effective Exterminator Mosquito Control Services
At ABC Home & Commercial, we understand that getting rid of mosquitoes can be the difference between enjoying time in your backyard and staying indoors until mosquito season is over. Once a mosquito pest control expert completes your free consultation, we will create a customized plan to fit your needs best.
ABC uses four primary methods to eliminate mosquitoes from your property:
- Locate breeding grounds to prevent eggs from hatching.
- Target mosquito resting areas with mobile misting backpacks.
- Neutralize both mature mosquitoes and larvae with specialized traps.
- Install no-hassle mister stations throughout your property.
With proper training and equipment, homeowners can usually control mosquitoes on their own, which is why we are happy to help.
Locating breeding grounds to prevent eggs from hatching
One reason that mosquito control is so tricky is that these insects reproduce quickly. For example, one female can lay up to 300 eggs at a time, and eggs take only 24 to 48 hours to hatch into larvae. That’s why the most critical first step in getting rid of mosquitoes is to find any eggs on your property. Our mosquito exterminator experts survey your yard to locate mosquito breeding grounds and lay out bait to neutralize eggs and larvae.
Depending on the type of mosquitoes in your yard, our experts will also:
- Check your property for standing water that may have accumulated in vases, pet bowls, buckets, birdbaths, and other containers which provide a haven for mosquitoes to reproduce.
- Remove standing water. Our pest control experts will ensure that no gaps exist in water storage containers, such as rainwater collection barrels, so mosquitoes cannot get inside and lay eggs.
Targeting mosquito resting areas with mobile misting backpacks
Many mosquito species spend the daytime resting in grass and shrubs. Our highly-skilled pest control specialists use backpack misters to spread a mosquito-repelling fog purging juvenile and adult mosquitoes from your yard.
Neutralizing both mature mosquitoes and larvae with specialized traps
Our traps work through selective targeting to control mosquitoes precisely. The traps are friendly to bees and other pollinators. Our mosquito extermination experts will put traps in your yard, attracting mosquitoes ready to lay eggs. When a mosquito lands on the trap and begins to deposit its eggs, a larvicide travels to the eggs and keeps them from maturing, then a fungus attaches itself to the egg-laying mosquito and kills it in a few days too.
Before the adult mosquito dies, it travels to many other places within a 4,000-square-foot radius of your Mosquito Larvicide Station. It lays many more eggs, but the fungus prevents larvae (in all these places) from growing. The best long-term solution to managing mosquitoes on your property is through the automatic application of mosquito control products.
If customers choose this method, our mosquito service experts will set up CoastalMister™ stations throughout your yard. These inconspicuous spraying nozzles release a fine mist of diluted insecticide at multiple pre-planned times of the day. The fog is toxic to mosquitoes, but after it dries (one or two hours later), your yard is entirely safe for you, your children, and your pets.
You can adjust the release of the mist to fit your need; you can emit more during peak mosquito season and less on days with less mosquito activity. As you can see, ABC pest control specialists have many plans in place to help you get the mosquitoes around your home under control. Once you contact us, we’ll send an ABC mosquito service expert to your home and determine the best course of action to address your problems.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“ABC is top notch. They came out right away to inspect for an estimate and offered a very thorough explanation as to what needed to be done to fix our issues. They provided our service the very next day and worked in the rain and in the dark, making sure that nothing was left undone before they left. I feel comfortable that they have taken care of our problem and I can sleep better tonight. Christopher was so great! Thank you ABC! I feel really good about our decision in choosing you to take care of our home moving forward!”
“Marco did an awesome job of running the project. He made good suggestions that worked out well for landscaping our backyard. He also went the second mile to help solve the small issues that arise when this type of work is performed. My wife and I are very happy with our beautiful new backyard which came at a fair price.”
While an infestation of something like cockroaches, ants or spiders might be more apparent, knowing whether your home is housing termites can be more difficult.
