Tick treatments are more concentrated at ground level and last 6 to 8 weeks. Mosquito treatments last 3 to 4 weeks,
with a noticeable decline in effectiveness towards week 4.
While some of the same pesticides are used to kill both ticks and mosquitoes, there are differences
in the chemistry, unique to the species being treated.
Tick treatments are applied more horizontally, spraying bushes lower to the ground where ticks lurk.
Mosquitoes, on the other hand, are sprayed more vertically, reaching up to 20 feet into the trees.
The goal is to reach from the ground up into higher tree foliage where mosquitoes hide.
