One of my favorite places to hang out at our house used to be our back deck. It overlooks our large yard and we have some privacy due to a few evergreen trees.
But now it’s not so fun. Our trees are a bit overgrown right now (and honestly, probably need to be removed. Womp. Womp.) And it’s insanely hot and the mosquitoes are crazy. So we find ourselves hanging in our front yard chatting with our neighbors in the evening, but even that has gotten unbearable because within 10 minutes, we’re all being eaten alive. Let’s face it, bug spray is great, but I don’t want to have to shower EVERY SINGLE NIGHT just to rinse it off.
So what’s an outdoor loving family to do? Thank goodness for mosquito prevention companies like Mosquito Joe
How does it work?
When Mosquito Joe comes out to your house, they walk your yard looking areas where mosquitoes like to hang out — think the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks and in damp shady areas of the property, and then treat those areas. They are focused on breaking the life cycle of the mosquito, so it’s not just eliminating the adult mosquitoes.
The whole mosquito control treatment takes about 20-30 minutes, and needs to be repeated roughly every 21 days. You and your family can go outside after a minimum wait of 30 minutes.
One super cool thing? If for some reason, you aren’t happy with the effectiveness of your first spray ,you can contact Mosquito Joe within 14 days, and they will schedule a time to reassess your property and if needed, re-spray at no additional charge. I like that kind of guarantee!

Now we enjoy our yard!!
Our top reasons for getting outside:
- Morning coffee – I love to sit out on the deck in the morning and enjoy my morning coffee before the heat of the day. It’s quiet and no one is bugging me for anything yet. But I haven’t been able to do it before now because inevitably the mosquitoes would come out
- Sprinkler/water party – My kids love playing with our water toys and now I don’t have to worry about them running in after 10 minutes because of bugs.
- Cook-outs/Dinner on the back deck – Invite all the neighbors. It’s time to throw some burgers on the grill, pull out a few fans and enjoy the back deck again.
- Front yard fun – We live on a cul-de-sac so my kids actually spend more time in our front yard than the back yard. We get out jump ropes, chalk, bubbles, the hose, Slip & Slide — you name it!
