Mosquitoes are not just pests that irritate, they harbor and transmit diseases through their bite. Reducing mosquito populations is a year-round task that every property owner needs to get involved in. According to Dr. Bill Meredith with DNREC’s Mosquito Control Section, Delaware has seen 28 West Nile Virus cases in sentinel chickens.* However, Zika Virus, Dengue and Yellow fever, Malaria, and Chikungunya are transmitted by mosquitoes, just to name a few. It is highly recommended that people take steps to control mosquito infestations on their property.
Home and commercial property owners often turn to professional mosquito control services for treatment programs. Lawns By Glen is a local organic pest control expert who offers Organic Mosquito Control Services in Delaware. We use only 25b exempt products to remove and prevent mosquito infestations.
WHAT DOES 25B EXEMPT MEAN
Chemical products containing active and inert ingredients considered minimum risk are registered under Section 25(b) of FIFRA (Federal Insecticide, Fungicide Rodenticide Act). They are NOT required to have an EPA registration number and are exempt from EPA regulations on efficacy and toxicity.

Environmentally Responsible Mosquito Control
Lawns By Glen takes our environmental stewardship responsibility seriously. We make it our top priority to use mosquito control compounds that don’t harm honey bees and other important insects. The treatment will not leave harmful neonicotinoids in areas where honey bees live or forage. Keep in mind that no chemical is absolutely safe. For this reason, pets and family members should stay indoors during and just after treatment.
How Often To Apply Mosquito Treatments
Every property is different, so some will need more frequent mosquito treatments than others. We have a lot of wetlands in Delaware, so those properties with heavy foliage or unavoidable standing water will definitely need more regular treatment.
Our lawn care company employs professionals who have experience in organic mosquito control. We thoroughly assess the needs of your property before making a recommendation on the timing. In general, a mosquito treatment should be applied every 3 to 4 weeks to guarantee consistent control throughout the season. our season runs from April till October. We will be able to tailor make a program based on your unique needs.
