Springtime in Arkansas is always a very special time of year, and it’s the best time to get outside before we begin encountering triple-digit summer temperatures. Unfortunately, this is also the time of year when mosquitoes and other pests begin getting more active. But they’re no match for proactive homeowners, and our team at The Bug Man offers mosquito treatment services each year from April through October!

We’ve been the most trusted pest control company in Little Rock for over 48 years, and we also proudly serve homeowners in Benton, Conway, Pine Bluff, and Searcy. Our mosquito treatment plans start at $85 monthly for an average-sized yard, and we also offer no-contract mosquito treatment services if you need to ensure that your outdoor wedding, picnic, or special event isn’t interrupted by mosquitoes and other flying insects. Our pest control specialists will spray your yard all summer long, and we’re always a phone call away if you ever encounter an unexpected mosquito infestation between your regularly scheduled service calls. Our pest control technicians all share our commitment to legendary service, and they’ll be there on time for every service visit.

There are also a few things you can do on your own to keep mosquitoes away. For starters, keep your lawn mowed and your hedges trimmed to eliminate potential habitats. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, so be sure to address any trouble areas in your yard. If you have any areas where rainwater accumulates, adding some gravel and sprinkling leftover coffee grounds on the area can prevent mosquito larvae from growing. Be sure to also empty pet water dishes and kiddie pools after use.

Citronella candles and tiki torches are popular ways to discourage insect activity and add warmth and ambiance at night. While you’re at it, why not plant some citronella in your garden? But don’t stop there! Mint, garlic, and basil all have insect-repellent properties, and a fresh supply of herbs is a great way to take your culinary skills to the next level! Marigolds are a great way to add a nice pop of color to your flowerbed, and they also attract dragonflies, which are harmless to humans but prey on mosquitoes!
