Mosquito Control Services for Homes in Melbourne, FL
Protect your home and family with comprehensive mosquito treatments
Mosquitoes are a year-round nuisance in Melbourne (and, if you live there, you already know that!). These nasty pests do more than drive you indoors when they swarm, also being a health risk. They carry dangerous diseases, such as the West Nile virus, Zika virus, and more that can be transmitted to humans when they bite.
That’s why it’s crucial to do all you can to control their population around your Melbourne home. Fortunately, you can eliminate them with affordable mosquito control services by Turner Pest Control. If you’re ready to get started, contact us online or call 321-329-9500.
Increase in Mosquito-Borne Diseases
Over the past few years, there’s been an increase in the severity of threats in Florida, largely because our climate serves as the ideal breeding grounds for more than 80 different kinds of mosquitoes. They’re carrying the serious diseases of Zika and West Nile viruses, along with Dengue Fever and Chikungunya, and other viral diseases.
So, to help protect your family from these health hazards, we’ve created a useful infographic to show you where mosquitoes like to breed and their preferred environments. Understanding their behavior is step one in creating an area around your home that’s inhospitable to mosquitoes, and this includes ensuring there is no standing water in areas listed in our infographic. When there are water sources you maintain, such as bird baths and fountains, it’s important to change the water often and keep all trash and vegetation from those areas.
Make sure your door screens and window screens are in good repair. Fix any problems. And, whenever you can, stay indoors at dawn and dusk, wearing long sleeves and pants when outside. Also use appropriate mosquito repellents.
When you manage your standing water AND take advantage of our residential mosquito control services, the power of your treatment plan is magnified several times over. So, we encourage you to multiply the effectiveness of your plan by using this one-two punch.
Customized Plans in Melbourne (Service- and Budget-Wise)
What you need may not be the same as what your neighbor needs. With customized mosquito plans from Turner Pest Control, everyone gets just the right level of service, taking into consideration the sizes of yards. Homeowners with smaller ones pay a lower monthly price for their residential mosquito control services than those with larger ones.
We attack mosquitoes at all stages of growth, from egg to adult, to protect you against the disease-carrying mature pests and their potential offspring. We use ultra-low volume treatments applied through backpack misters, using fast-acting, long-lasting sprays to protect you, your family, your guests, and your pets. We focus on places where the pests will likely lay eggs, such as in the underside of foliage.
Because we use the safest, greenest products possible, you and your family (pets, too!) can safely go outside after we’re finished. Best of all, we don’t compromise treatment effectiveness to provide you with this level of safety and peace of mind.
Plus, we keep a keen eye out for the weather. The peak mosquito season dovetails with spring, so that’s when it’s important to be especially diligent about addressing any potential breeding grounds on your property and having regular treatments. Then, when temperatures dip, you may discover that you can temporarily put your treatment plan on “pause.” Yes, Melbourne is warm enough for mosquitoes most of the year, but there are times when it can make to put your services on hold.
If you’re having a special event and don’t want your guests to be bothered by mosquitoes, we can also provide a one-time service.

Yes, mosquitoes are a huge nuisance and can carry serious diseases, so they’re important to control around your Melbourne home—but additional pests also thrive in Florida’s hot and humid temperatures.
