Frequently Asked Questions About FAIRELL Mosquito Control

Here are a few of commonly asked questions from our customers.  Here are a few of commonly asked questions from our customers as we’re sure you have a lot of questions.. If you’d like to know anything not listed below, give us a call at  786-285-6660.

How long does it take to do the barrier spray treatment and how long will it last?

A typical treatment will average about 20-30 minutes. Larger yards may take longer to treat. Each treatment lasts approximately 21 days, at which time our team will be scheduled to treat your yard again.

Do you spray the grass?

Not generally. Mosquitoes do not usually seek shelter in the grass. Our goal in doing a pre-spray walk of the property is to seek out the “hot spots” where mosquitoes will be loafing. The most common areas to find mosquitoes during the day include: the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks and in damp shady areas of the property. We do recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season.
In some cases such as special events like weddings and large outdoor parties, we will spray the grass where your guests will be. We may also spray the grass to if you’ve asked us to treat a flea or tick problem.

Is the treatment effective against any other pests?

Our standard mosquito treatment primarily targets mosquitoes, but is also effective at reducing the number of fleas and ticks in the yard. Flies and gnats are also affected, but the residual attribute of the product is not effective at long-term suppression of these insects.

Does anyone need to be home when the yard is treated? How will I know if the treatment was done if I’m not home?
No. As long as your gate is unlocked and your pets are inside, our technician can treat. Our trained professionals will obtain any information pertinent to your location (i.e. locked gate) when you sign up. Your technician will leave a door hanger upon completion of your treatment so you will know your yard has been serviced. Information on this door hanger will include your date and time of service as well as any comments and helpful hints the technician may have to help you keep your yard as uninviting as possible for mosquitoes, ticks and other pests.
Do you service commercial accounts?
Absolutely. Our barrier sprays are a great solution for many commercial businesses such as restaurants with patios, parks, campgrounds, public pools and playgrounds, sports fields, daycares, outdoor wedding venues, schools and more.
What if it rains after my yard has been treated?
As long as your yard has had adequate time to dry after the application of your treatment (approximately 30 minutes), rain should not impact the effectiveness of your service. However, our Service Guarantee ensures that if you are not completely satisfied with the effectiveness of our barrier spray services, we will return to your yard to re-spray your property and ensure you are mosquito-free until your next scheduled service.
How much does it cost?
Each property is unique and we customize each barrier spray application to successfully treat your mosquito problem. We price our applications based on the size and density of foliage of your property and the amount of product that we will need to use. You can contact us any time for a free quote and we usually don’t even need to visit your property. Our trained agents will be able to take your property address, look it up using our computer program, and assess your property size to give you an accurate quote.
Do you treat indoor pest problems as well?
Yes, we have indoor and outdoor pest control services. If mosquitoes and other bugs are coming in through open doors, our outside efforts may reduce inside annoyances.
Will FAIRELL kill all the mosquitoes and ticks on my property?
No service can offer 100% protection from every mosquito and tick. As you might imagine, a mosquito from a neighboring property could wander into your yard and bite you before feeding on the treated foliage. However, you’ll find that the presence of mosquitoes and ticks is enormously reduced. And if you don’t, you can get a refund based on our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

The city has a mosquito truck come through and spray, what makes your service better?

Our technicians are trained to provide a custom treatment for each individual situation. They will walk your property each visit and treat it with a methodology specific to your yard. A mosquito truck sprays a dense fog hoping to eradicate adult mosquitoes. Their service can only reach mosquitoes in close proximity to the truck.

How long before I can go in the yard after you have sprayed?

After a barrier spray treatment, you need to ensure that the product has completely dried before going outside. We recommend a minimum of 30 minutes. Once the product has completely dried, you and your family may safely enjoy your deck, pool and yard

Will the treatment affect my fish pond or swimming pool?

Pyrethroids are hazardous to fish. As a result, our technicians are trained to avoid fish ponds when providing you with a barrier spray treatment. Our products do not affect swimming pools; nevertheless, our technicians are also trained to not allow the spray to contact the pool water.

How does rain affect the treatment?

Rain is not a large concern because of the residual attributes of our products. The products are designed to last, so once dry, only a fraction of the product can be physically removed other than by the natural breakdown of the product. We will not spray in the rain, but we can spray soon thereafter.
