Frequently Asked Questions About Mosquito Joe
Mosquito Defense offers a written “90-day” money back guarantee for your satisfaction. Mosquito Defense offers a “lifetime” parts and labor warranty on all components used
in our mosquito misting systems. To honor our warranty, we do require that mosquito system refills, service, maintenance, repairs and modifications must be performed by Mosquito Defense so that our technicians can inspect and ensure that all components are functioning correctly.
As long as the chemicals are used in accordance with the FDA guidelines, they are perfectly safe and will not harm humans or pets. Our trained staff can answer all your questions concerning chemical safety and best application practices.
Our spray insecticides are biodegradable and are harmless to the environment. But there are some surfaces that can feel the effects of the inert ingredients. Our Installation team knows the proper techniques to design a system that locates nozzles to avoid this problem.
Mosquito Defense recommends that a barrier spray be applied every 21-28 days. The barrier spray only takes about 15-20 minutes to cover most backyards. This spray creates a mosquito barrier in the yard and leaves a slight residue on plants and leaves. New mosquitoes entering the area and eating the grass, leaves and shrubbery will be killed on contact.

Our technicians are trained and qualified to select the specific formulation and dosage to be used. Pyrethrum, which is derived from the chrysanthemum flower, is the insecticide most often in a Mosquito Defense system. Permethrin, is another widely used product that is very
effective, however, this formulation is considered “synthetic” and has no natural properties. Our design professional will evaluate the site prior to selecting the exact product and formulation to be used. By customizing applications, each insecticide or repellent can be used in its most efficient manner possible while minimizing unnecessary applications. Many companies lead their customers to believe that their pyrethrum based misting solutions are “natural”. They are either misinformed or carelessly (or purposely) misleading their customers. Pyrethrum itself is a natural plant derivative but currently there is no way to deliver its active ingredient in an insecticide format without including an active synthetic synergist—making it not, and should not be considered, a completely all natural insecticide.
That’s an excellent question. Your yard size and how frequently you spray affect usage and duration of supply. However, the average home with 30-nozzles, spraying 3-times per day for 35-seconds will last approximately 3-months.
Our quality systems require little ongoing maintenance to keep it in its optimal condition. With every visit, our technician will make sure the entire system, tubing and nozzles are in good working order. They will perform our 10-point inspection to ensure there are no issues and will leave the system performing as if it were brand new. We provide this thorough and comprehensive service at a low flat monthly rate for all our customers.
