Keep The Deadliest Pest In The World Off Your Houston Property
When you see a mosquito buzzing around, you probably think about how annoying it is, but you most likely don’t think about how dangerous it is. However, mosquitoes are the deadliest insects in the world, killing over one million people every year by spreading diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. Having as few mosquitoes as possible on your property is key to preventing your family from getting sick. With mosquito control from TNT Home & Commercial Services, you can limit the mosquito populations around your property.
Our Mosquito Control Offerings
We offer several options for mosquito control, depending on your needs and budget.
Our backpack fogging mosquito control service is performed by one of our experienced technicians. During your service visit, we treat your property with one of our backpack misting machines, spraying the areas where mosquitoes are most likely to rest during the heat of the day. These areas include foliage, trees, shrubs, bushes, grass, and fence lines. We’ll also treat areas of standing water to eliminate eggs and larvae. This is a recurring service. We’ll return every 21 days to perform another treatment.
Mosquito Misting System
We also offer the installation and maintenance of mosquito misting systems. These systems are a long term solution to your mosquito problems. They get installed in strategic areas around your yard and release a mist to eliminate adult mosquitoes on a regularly scheduled basis. They also have a remote that can release a treatment on your terms if you find that the mosquito population is getting bad in between scheduled mistings. After installation, we will return to your home every two to three months to service the system.
Another option for mosquito control is the installation and maintenance of mosquito traps. As their name indicates, these traps work by trapping and eliminating mosquitoes. We service mosquito traps monthly.
One-Time Mosquito Treatments
If you have a special outdoor event coming up, such as a wedding, concert, or graduation party, we offer one-time mosquito control services. We’ll perform a fogging treatment of your property to reduce the mosquito populations in your yard before the big day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is mosquito control so important?
Professional mosquito control is important because mosquitoes won’t go away on their own.
Due to the numerous diseases they transmit, mosquitoes are considered among the most dangerous pests on earth. While the diseases they carry are less of a concern in the United States than in other parts of the world, they still pose a very real health hazard to humans they share living space with. Professional treatment keeps you free from the dangers they pose and the nuisance of their buzzing and biting.
What attracts mosquitoes to my home?
Mosquitoes spend most of their lives in water, so they look for sources of standing water to use for breeding pools. These can include swamps and ponds, but can also mean your pool, bird fountain, gutters, or puddles in your backyard. If you want to free yourself from mosquitoes, eliminating sources of standing water from around your property is key.
Why do mosquitoes bite?
Only female mosquitoes bite. They do this in order to suck the nutrients in our blood to nourish their eggs. While the bite itself is rarely painful except for the itchy bumps it leaves behind, the diseases the bites can carry can pose huge health hazards.
Are some people more attractive to mosquitoes than others?
Yes. Unfortunately, some people are more prone to mosquito bites than others due to a number of factors. While research continues on the subject, factors that can make you more attractive to mosquitoes include the amount of carbon dioxide you exhale, the odors produced by your skin, and your diet - especially if you’ve consumed alcohol.
Can I prevent myself from mosquito bites?
Yes and no. There are a number of steps you can take to minimize your risk for mosquito bites as much as possible. These steps include:
- Avoiding outdoor activity in the morning and late afternoon
- Wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants when outdoors whenever possible
- Wearing lighter-colored clothing when outside
- Applying protective mosquito repellent with DEET to your skin and clothing
- Eliminating sources of standing water from your home and yard
- Ensuring your drains and gutters are working properly
- Keeping exterior doors and windows closed or screened at all times
Unfortunately, while these steps can greatly reduce your chances for mosquito bites, there’s only one real solution to keep mosquitoes off your person: eliminate them from the area entirely. If mosquitoes are buzzing around your home or business, don’t wait: contact the professionals at TNT Home and Commercial Services for help.
