If you have mosquitos invading your property, mosquito spraying is effective at keeping their population in check. Mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley involves the use of special pesticides designed to kill these harmful, unwanted insects.
Precautions for Mosquito Spraying
Cover Outdoor Furniture Before Mosquito Spraying in Fountain Valley
The chemicals must be thoroughly sprayed on your property to make mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley effective. If you leave your patio tables, chairs, and other outdoor furniture unprotected from mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley, they will be covered with chemicals. This can be especially problematic for wood furniture, which tends to absorb liquid and vapor.
Prevent chemicals from contaminating your furniture by covering them before mosquito spraying. Use a cover made from waterproof material to ensure maximum protection.
Harvest Homegrown Produce Before Mosquito Spraying
If you have homegrown fruits or vegetables ready to be harvested, make sure to pick them before mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley. This is to avoid eating food that has been contaminated with pesticides.
Stay Indoors During Mosquito Spraying
Although mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley poses minimal risks to human health, it is not completely harmless. Breathing in too much of the chemicals can cause dizziness, headache, nausea, and other health concerns. Reduce exposure by staying inside while the process of mosquito control is underway.
Protect your furry friends by keeping them indoors during mosquito spraying in Fountain Valley. You should also bring pet food and water dishes inside so they aren’t contaminated by pesticides.
Close the Windows and Doors During Mosquito Spraying
Minimize your exposure to chemicals by keeping your windows and doors shut during mosquito spraying. You may open windows 15 to 20 minutes after the application or longer to avoid coming into contact with lingering chemicals in the air.

Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy
our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted
mosquitos and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the
time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with
these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent
researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application
methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito
Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season
progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitos and
repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application
technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control. Reach out to our
