When looking for standing water remember that just a few ounces of water can produce a significant number of mosquitoes.

Removing standing water around your yard is a useful first step in reducing mosquito populations, but it does not solve the problem. Mosquitoes can easily breed next door in your neighbours yard, or further down the street. Adult mosquitoes are likely to invade your yard regardless of the breeding suitability of the area.

Get rid of Adult Mosquitoes

Adult mosquitoes are commonly found in bushes and shrubs because they feed on plant nectar. Females need a blood meal in order to produce new eggs. They feed on people by following the scent of our exhaled carbon dioxide, our body heat, and a complex blend of scents found on human skin.


Our most popular method, the Barrier Shield Program kills mosquitoes on contact and continues to repel mosquitoes for 21 to 25 days, GUARANTEED!

Raifsnider’s Mosquito Defense Experts have taken the traditional “barrier” method, added a few extra techniques along with our proprietary solution and perfected our Barrier Shield Program!

No more avoiding your yard or using annoying bug repellent sprays, citronella torches or candles, just mosquito free outdoor living!

  • We start by identifying and treating the mosquito habitat around your home and dramatically reducing the population. It all starts with larviciding the breeding grounds on your property.
  • Then, we locate the areas where mosquitoes hide as they wait for their next victim. We apply a mist of our proprietary solution which is formulated to kill and repel mosquitoes for 21 – 25 days.
  • Also, we place biological mosquito dunks in areas that standing water is prevalent such as bird bath’s, air conditioning unit drips and low lying places in your yard that hold water after it rains (Another key factor during annual control).
  • Then, your mosquito control specialist will return every 21-25 days throughout mosquito season to reapply your Barrier Shield.

We are so confident in the effectiveness of the Barrier Shield Program that we offer a “100% FREE TREATMENT GUARANTEE”. If you are bothered by mosquitoes between your service visits, we will return and provide an additional treatment Free of Charge!
