When Should Mosquito Treatment Start in Central TN?

Once mosquitoes establish breeding grounds on your property, it can be an uphill battle trying to eradicate them. That’s why we recommend getting your home treated just before the onset of mosquito season. This is an instance where an ounce of prevention definitely is worth a pound of cure. 

Of course, you can get mosquito treatment any time. Barrier treatments can be applied before or during mosquito season.

When Does Mosquito Season Start in Central TN?

It’s impossible to give a definitive answer to this question because it depends on the temperature. Mosquito eggs can only hatch when temperatures reach a consistent 50 degrees F. 

Once this threshold is reached, the start of mosquito season begins as they feed and reproduce. Here in Central TN, this typically means early March. This is when to start preparing for the mosquito-heavy months ahead, which will peak in summer and linger through autumn.

When Do I Need Mosquito Treatment?

Many people make the mistake of waiting until they have a full-blown mosquito problem to start mosquito treatment. By this time, the breeding population is established and will be more difficult to get rid of. 

Your best chance at preventing mosquito problems is to get a head start on mosquito treatment at the end of the winter months. This may seem early to start safeguarding your property, but it helps to prevent the onslaught of mosquitoes months later.

What Time of Day Is Best to Spray For Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn, so this is often the best time to apply treatment. However, when you work with a professional mosquito exterminator for mosquito treatment, they will help determine the best time to apply barrier treatment to your home.
