What’s the Best Mosquito Prevention System for Louisiana Yards?

/ /

While the weather is still hot,  the abundance of annoying mosquitoes we experience South Louisiana can leave you feeling drained!

These insects can carry several diseases – including the West Nile virus and Zika virus – both of which are spreading through the Southeast US, making them at best annoying and at worst, dangerous to your health.

Combating mosquitoes for over 60 years has inspired us to design the two BEST prevention systems for South Louisiana yards: what we in the industry call “barrier protection” and an automatic misting system from Coastal Mister.

But anytime you have two choices, you have to ask… which one is right for you?

barrier yard treatment 

What are your options? 

Option #1 – Barrier Misting System 

Our team of professionals will come spray your yard, creating a barrier around property to ensure that no more mosquitoes venture into your yard.

  • A one-time spray treatment that usually lasts up to 21 days (dependent on amount of rainfall)
  • Safe to be in the sprayed area just 30 minutes after treatment
  • Does NOT include chemicals that will negatively impact your grass, plants, pets, or people
  • Reduces the amount of mosquitoes that you will see in your yard by up to 90%

With the barrier misting system there’s nothing for you to do except keep an eye on standing water, leaf piles and other places mosquitoes tend to breed. Otherwise, you can enjoy your yard with minimal effort on your end. 

Option #2 – Coastal Mister System

The CoastalMister™ System is one of the most effective and reliable outdoor insect control alternatives for homes and businesses as it directly focuses on the areas where you spend the most time, immediately reducing your risk.

The natural Pyrethrum insecticide then sets to work to repel mosquitoes, flies, and gnats from the area over a prolonged length of time. It is a simple but effective process – remove the mosquito, remove the threat.

  • Kills and repels mosquitoes around pools, patios, porches
  • Automated technology sprays for mosquitoes at pre-set time during the day
  • Easy maintenance & professional support available
  • Each system is custom designed for your home

So, which is BEST for me? 

It really comes down to your specific needs and your preference as a property owner.

If you’re the type that likes to have the professionals show up regularly and make your yard is treated, than the barrier treatment is a no-brainer.

But, if you’re the type who prefers knowing your yard is being treated more frequently and you like the idea of having a “spot treatment” anytime you want, than a misting system might be a better fit.

And of course, there’s the cost consideration. A misting system will cost more up-front but may cost less to operate in the long term. One of our technicians will be happy to show you the cost of each and help you compare.
