Mosquito Barrier Spray fights mosquitos for 21 days.

Our professional spray application helps protect your family and pets from the nuisance and danger of mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.  The treatment creates a barrier that kills adult mosquitoes (as well as ticks and fleas) on contact. Then, as incoming mosquitoes take shelter in your greenery, the residue on the leaves knocks these newcomers dead, too.  If your yard seems to produce an endless supply of mosquitoes, consider that a female mosquito can produce from 1000-3000 offspring in its lifetime.  Since dead mosquitoes don’t reproduce, you will continue to enjoy the effects of a treatment even after the barrier begins to break down.  We have been using this product upon request for several years and everyone is so pleased with the results, we decided to spread the word so more people can enjoy being in their yards without the constant assault of our most abundant nemesis.

First Impressions Lawn and Garden only use products registered by the Environmental Protection Agency.

First Impressions Lawn and Garden adheres to all local, state and federal licensing guidelines and utilizes pest-control solutions that have been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Our applicators have been trained on safely storing, mixing and applying chemicals to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment while minimizing any harmful effects to themselves or the environment.  Pesticides are generally classified in 3 levels of toxicity, high, medium and low.  In order to reduce risk of exposing children, pets and our employees to harmful chemicals, First Impressions only uses pesticides and herbicides that are the lowest level of toxicity.  While an array of formulations is available for specific situations, the active ingredient in our barrier spray is a synthetic reproduction of a substance derived from chrysanthemums. This same basic ingredient can be found in a variety of household products including some used to treat scabies and lice.

The solution will take down any adult mosquitoes (as well as ticks and fleas) that encounter the barrier. Under typical conditions, the solution will dry in 30 minutes, after which it is safe for people or animals that brush against the vegetation. However, for the next 21 days, the dried residue should continue to kill mosquitoes that take refuge in your turf and shrubbery.

Special care is taken to prevent hurting beneficial pollinators such as honeybees. For instance, our trained First Impressions Lawn and Garden professionals will not spray anything with blossoms or fruit where bees gather nectar and pollen.  Turf and low-lying brush are the most likely places that these pests will take refuge from the direct sun during the heat of the day.

Enjoy attentive professional service

With our treatment program, service is automatic.  Our professionals will spray your property from backpack-mounted spray systems every 30 days. Most yards can be treated in about 30 minutes. Family and pets can safely return to the yard 30 minutes after treatment, once the treatment has dried.

We remind you in advance of an upcoming service, giving you plenty of time to accommodate our visit, or plan for our visit. You needn’t be home for application. We’ll leave a courtesy card notifying you your treatment was completed successfully.

Protect children and pets from mosquito-borne disease.

Children and pets are at increased risk from insect-borne disease. One reason is that they tend to spend more time outdoors, where exposure is greatest. In fact, two-thirds of all Rocky Mountain spotted fever cases occur in children under 15.  Encephalitis (West Nile among the most common) and Lyme disease are also commonly spread through mosquitos and ticks, and are particularly dangerous to younger children and older people. Go to for more information on West Nile virus.

Regular treatment by First Impressions Lawn and Garden helps protect your family and pets from these dangers in your own backyard.

*Many state or county agencies across the U.S. have programs to monitor diseases found in local mosquito populations.

Protect your family and pets from tick-borne disease.

Disease-infested ticks have always been a concern, as they carry deadly diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever. However, the vigorous spread of Lyme disease in recent years has made tick-borne disease increasingly worrisome.  First Impressions Lawn and Garden barrier spray will kill adult ticks on contact, decreasing the chances that these pests will be biting your children and pets in areas where the barrier has been applied.

We do not guarantee that you will never get a tick on your body, as ticks can transfer from brushing against foliage in the woods or drop down from overhanging limbs of trees. Additional precautions should be taken, especially in wooded areas, to provide on-going protection.  We DO guarantee that the flea, mosquito, and tick population in your landscape will be effectively eliminated, and your chances of being bitten by one of these pests in a treated area will be reduced by 99%.
