When is the Best Time to Start Mosquito Treatment in Central TN?

It can be an uphill battle trying to eradicate mosquitoes – especially if they have an established breeding site on your property. That’s why the best way to ensure minimal mosquitoes this spring and summer is to have your yard treated just before mosquito season takes flight.

As a wise person once said, an ounce of prevention can be worth a pound of cure.

When is Mosquito Season in Central TN?

The beginning of mosquito season depends on the temperature. Mosquito eggs will begin to hatch once temperatures reach 50 degrees F or warmer. Depending on the year, this probably means somewhere between March and April.

Once the eggs start hatching and the larvae develop into adults, mosquito season is upon us. They will feed voraciously and reproduce rapidly. Mosquito activity usually peaks in mid-summer and can linger through autumn.

When Should You Get Mosquito Treatment?

Don’t make the mistake of waiting until you have a full-blown mosquito infestation before you seek treatment. If you do, the breeding population will be well established and it will be difficult to interrupt the lifecycle. 

By getting treatment in early spring, you’ll have the advantage over mosquitoes. They may still hatch, but there will be far fewer than there would have been, and it will not be so easy for them to establish themselves. It may seem early, but you’ll thank yourself months later when you’re wondering where the swarms of mosquitoes went.

What Time of Day Should You Spray for Mosquitoes?

The best time to apply mosquito treatment is when they’re most active. This means at dawn and dusk. However, depending on the needs of your property and your schedule, this may not be possible.
