Are mosquitos keeping you inside the house in the late afternoons and evenings? ECOR Lawn Spray & Pest Control is a licensed, family-owned business offering an effective and environmentally friendly program for mosquitos in Melbourne and throughout Central and South Brevard. The program we have developed kills mosquito larva in breeding sites and exposed mosquitos to help protect you, your family, and property.
Protection for Your Family & Property
Mosquitos need a blood meal to reproduce and, in the process, can spread serious pathogens to people and pets. Mosquito-borne illnesses include West Nile Virus, Zika, Eastern equine encephalitis, and St. Louis encephalitis, as well as dog heartworm disease. Mosquitos can lay thousands of eggs in a couple weeks and breed in standing or stagnant water.
Mosquito breeding sites on your property may include:
- Children’s toys
- Baby pools and outdoor playsets
- Uncovered garbage cans
- Clogged gutters
- Potted plants and empty pots
- Buckets or other containers
Effective mosquito control requires professional treatment, as well as dealing with the breeding and resting sites on your property. Reducing the places where they are breeding and resting can help prevent the constant arrival of new mosquitos. This means getting rid of all sources of standing water, cleaning the gutters, keeping bushes and shrubs trimmed, and cutting the grass.
How Do I Permanently Get Rid of Mosquitoes in My Yard?
There are several steps you can take to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard permanently:
- Remove standing water: Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so remove any sources of standing water in your yard, such as bird baths, empty pots, and stagnant pools.
- Keep your yard clean: Mosquitoes attract clutter, so keep your yard tidy and debris-free.
- Use mosquito repellents: There are many mosquito repellents available, including candles, sprays, and electronic devices. Use these in your yard to keep mosquitoes at bay.
- Plant mosquito-repelling plants: Certain plants, such as citronella, lavender, and marigolds, are known to repel mosquitoes. Planting these in your yard can help reduce the number of mosquitoes.
- Install mosquito netting: If you have a patio or outdoor seating area, consider installing mosquito netting to keep the bugs out.

While taking steps to reduce breeding and resting sites is helpful for reducing mosquito populations, professional mosquito control is important for getting rid of the pests. ECOR Lawn Spray & Pest Control has developed an effective solution. The mosquito GARD program stands for General Area Reduction and Deployment, which is a multi-step approach to killing and preventing the spread of mosquitos.
This environmentally friendly mosquito control program uses strategically placed traps that kill mosquito larvae inside the trap, in the surrounding breeding sites, and exposed mosquitos. In addition to the traps, fogging is used to kill mosquitos and stop them from continuing to breed on your property. This mosquito control program, combined with reducing the amount of breeding and resting sites on your property, can provide a lasting solution to your problem.
If you want to keep your property and family protected throughout the mosquito season, regular treatments are recommended. A customized plan is developed for each property, but most will benefit from fogging every 45 days to keep mosquitos under control.
At ECOR Lawn Spray & Pest Control, we never use a one-size-fits-all method to control mosquitos in Melbourne. Every property is unique and has specific requirements for mosquito control and elements that may be allowing them to breed in large numbers.
