There is truly nothing worse than attempting to enjoy a nice evening in your backyard and getting swarmed by mosquitos, thankfully this year Mosquito Toronto has us covered!
We moved into our new home last summer and one of the things I love most about the new house is the backyard.
At our old home, the backyard was not fenced, there was no deck and the landscaping was so bumpy we couldn’t put out a patio set to enjoy.
We honestly didn’t spend much time in our old backyard in the 5 years we lived in that home.
But at our new home, the backyard is fenced in, has a beautiful deck and we replaced the lawn to rid it of all the weeds and prickly things so we could fully enjoy this backyard.
Bella really enjoyed our backyard last summer and has been asking if we can sit out there and look at the stars this summer.
Sadly, we didn’t really get to enjoy it much last summer beyond daytime hours.
As soon as the sun would start to set the mosquitos were out in full force, it was horrible.
We tried some store-bought mosquito repellants and none worked.
Not the rings, candles, nothing!
A Tranquil Summer In Our Backyard – Mosquito Toronto
Last summer when we realized how bad the mosquitos were at our new home I reached out to Mosquito Toronto, but they were fully booked for the season.
I vowed this summer would be different, and well, this summer is going to be very different.
Aside from the fact we will likely all be spending a lot more time in our backyards this year due to COVID-19, I have the amazing crew from Mosquito Toronto servicing our home for the season to keep those mosquitos at bay.
Their motto is: Protect, Monitor, Repel… Repeat!
If there was ever a time to invest in this service, this year is it so you can get outside as much as possible without the annoyance (and pain) from pesky mosquitos.
Mosquito Toronto – How It Works
During your treatments from Mosquito Toronto, adult mosquitos are hit and hit hard by their technicians using professional-grade applicator units that disperse the all-natural barrier repellent onto the foliage in your property, including trees, bushes, and plants.
The more foliage you have, the more places mosquitos have to hide out and make themselves at home.
They will also treat under your deck, shed, pool house and other structures that mosquito love to call home.
But that’s not all folks.
After the natural treatment solution dries, it provides continuous residual protection for up to 14 days.
That’s why signing up with Mosquito Toronto all season long is key to keeping those mosquitos at bay.
Their all-season service provides regular treatments, every 14 days.
You can sign-up for a package of 5 (prime time) or 8 (their most effective mosquito control package) bi-weekly treatments.
Last but not least, as a part of every 14-day treatment visit you get an added bonus, a bonus that makes their great service, even better.
Using their extensive training, your technician will take additional, proactive steps to eliminate mosquito larvae breeding sites on your property.
This is their Mosquito Check-up Inspection that is included with each treatment.

Sounds amazing right?
Mosquito Toronto’s service is highly sought after and they do book up early and fast, so if you want to lock them down to service your home this summer I suggest you reach out to them ASAP!
If mosquitoes weren’t enough of an annoyance, another pest that often creeps into your backyard is the tick.
These nasty insects can carry Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses.
Ticks are the last things we want our kids, family or pets picking up when we are trying to enjoy our backyard.
They love to hang out in long grass, brush and foliage around your home, and unfortunately, their population is on the rise in the Toronto area.
Thankfully, Mosquito Toronto’s all-natural treatment not only protects against mosquitos, but it also protects against ticks!
My Experience With Mosquito Toronto
My technician Joey arrived at my home for my first of 8 treatments, I am doing the full season package.
It was a completely contactless service and while I did follow him around to shoot some videos and photos for my post, we did practice physical distancing.
He did a property evaluation and we passed with flying colours.
We had no puddles, pooling or standing water.
Our gutters were open and clear of any blockages.
He did note that my one neighbour’s cedar tree on our fence line and their pool are hot spots for mosquitos, and likely why the mosquitos are as bad as they are.
After the property evaluation, he began the all-natural 360° property treatment application, leaving no corner untreated.
Once the application was complete he placed a sign on my lawn noting the treatment and gave me my service report card.
If their property evaluation finds any areas that are a concern leading to the increase in mosquitos and/or ticks, they will place their recommendations on how to fix those on the back of your report card.
He also gave us a Mosquito Kids package for Bella that included a 24 pack of Crayola crayons and a little booklet with games, colouring pages and info to help kids learn about mosquitos and ticks.
I am looking forward to a summer filled with more backyard fun and less mosquito annoyance!
