Mosquitoes in New York City

Mosquito season in the Tri-State Area typically starts in April and ends in October. These bloodsucking pests emerge from hibernation when temperatures rise above 70°F (21°C), with peak activity occurring around dawn and dusk during the hot, humid months of July through September.

Contrary to popular belief, not all mosquitoes breed in sprawling swamps. Densely populated urban areas like New York City provide a surprising number of breeding sites, including gutters, storm drains, and even small pockets of standing water in discarded containers.

Out of the 70 species of mosquitoes that live here, only a few are known to bite humans. Nevertheless, these species (such as the northern house mosquito, Asian tiger mosquito, and eastern saltmarsh mosquito) pose significant risk to public health due to the possibility of transmitting diseases like West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis, Zika virus, chikungunya, dengue fever, and malaria.

Each year, MMPC’s pest control professionals help thousands of homeowners, property owners, and businesses in NYC exterminate mosquitoes and prevent them from coming back using eco-friendly methods and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles.

Mosquito Treatment and Assessment

Our technician performs an initial treatment to reduce the existing mosquito population, along with a full assessment of your premises to identify outdoor harborage areas, conditions allowing mosquitoes to breed, and recommendations for long-term control. This service is recommended for new clients.

  • We start by identifying potential breeding areas and conditions conducive to mosquitoes such as standing water, dense vegetation, and structural fissures.
  • To quickly reduce the existing mosquito population, our licensed mosquito technician applies eco-friendly, botanical insecticide sprays to targeted areas around the exterior perimeter and foliage.
  • Clients receive an electronic report with findings and recommendations to fix conditions attracting or allowing mosquitoes to breed in outdoor spaces.

Eco-Friendly Spraying

Our technician uses specialized equipment to apply eco-friendly insecticide to outdoor areas where mosquitoes typically hide, such as around the exterior perimeter and foliage.

  • Based on our extensive knowledge and experience, we accurately target mosquito harborage areas and breeding sites to maximize effectiveness while minimizing pesticide usage.
  • We use botanical insecticides formulated with natural ingredients that are 100% safe for people, pets, and plants.
  • Each spray provides lasting residual control, preventing mosquitoes from returning to treated areas.

Pod Trap Installation

MMPC is one of the first companies in New York City to offer the installation of mosquito pod traps, a novel, eco-safe technology designed to attract and effectively kill mosquitoes and their larvae.

  • The pods work by luring in egg-laying female mosquitoes and exposing them to an EPA-approved larvicide containing biological growth regulators that specifically targets mosquito larvae, putting a stop to their life cycle.
  • The pods also contain an entomopathogenic fungus that weakens and kills adult mosquitoes.
  • This combination of biological agents (larvicide and fungus) is scientifically proven to provide long-lasting protection against mosquitoes while being completely harmless to humans, animals, and beneficial insects.

Seasonal Protection (April through October)

Mosquitoes reproduce rapidly and their life cycle can be as short as a week. A single spray might kill the adult mosquitoes present at the time, but after the residual spray wears off or is washed away by rain, new mosquitoes may emerge from eggs or fly in from surrounding areas.

Seasonal mosquito control provides continuous protection all season long. Every year we help thousands of homeowners and businesses keep these annoying and persistent pests away from their properties.

  • Our seasonal program includes weekly or monthly spraying treatments as well as mosquito pod trap installation and refills.
  • The frequency and timing of visits is customized based on your preferences and mosquito activity levels.
  • We service all types of residential and commercial clients, from single-family houses to apartment buildings, condos and co-ops, hotels, schools, offices, stores, restaurants, non-profits, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there so many mosquitoes on my property?

If you’re dealing with severe or persistent mosquito infestations every year, the most common reasons are:

  • Sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed, such as birdbaths, clogged gutters, puddles, overflowing trash cans, and even small pockets of water in discarded containers
  • Dense vegetation where mosquitoes like to hide, such as overgrown lawns, tall weeds, and thick shrubs
  • Nearby mosquito breeding grounds, such as ponds, lakes, marshes, and other natural bodies of water

How do I get rid of mosquitoes?

For the vast majority of our clients, the best way to get rid of mosquitoes comes down to eliminating standing water sources and mosquito hiding spots. Here are several steps you can take to reduce outdoor mosquito activity:

  • Regularly clean out cutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage of rainwater
  • Remove containers, buckets, tires, or other objects that might collect water after rain
  • Fill in uneven spots in the ground with dirt or gravel to prevent puddles from forming
  • For birdbaths and other water features, install a small pump to keep the water from stagnating or treat the water with store-bought mosquito bits or mosquito dunks designed to kill mosquito larvae
  • Keep grasses and shrubs trimmed

Are mosquito sprays safe for people and pets?

Yes, at MMPC we use EPA-registered products that are eco-safe and harmless to humans, animals, plants, and beneficial insects. Our mosquito specialists are licensed pesticide applicators with the knowledge and experience to apply any mosquito control pesticides in a safe and targeted manner.
