Female mosquitoes suck our blood and can transmit West Nile encephalitis, a sometimes fatal inflammation of the brain. They are most active from dusk to dawn and will fly as far as from Airdrie to Calgary (14 km) for a blood meal. Surprisingly, male mosquitoes feed on plant nectars. Because mosquitoes can develop from egg to adult in 10 to 14 days, control is best along with an attitude of prevention. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water sources such as storm drains, old tires, children’s wading pools and birdbaths.
Calgary is home to more than 20 of the 44 species of mosquito currently known to occur in Alberta .Are pesky mosquitoes and ticks ruining your outdoor enjoyment? As Calgary’s leader in tick and mosquito control, Martin’s Pest Control offers top-of-the-line services that will help you take back your yard. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you select the program that’s right for you.
Mosquitoes are resilient pests that will not only ruin your outdoor experience, but also carry dangerous vector-borne diseases such as West Nile. At Martin’s Pest Control , our most popular mosquito control treatment is our barrier protection spray program. We can even treat your small pond or lake, ditch etc. .
Applied by our professional pest control professionals around your home and throughout your backyard, this, trusted and dependable mosquito control solution eliminates mosquitoes on contact and continues working for up to 21 days, depending on the impact of rain and weather elements.
For optimum protection, season-long control is highly recommended, every 21 days. Martin’s Pest Control will remind you in advance of an upcoming service and leave you notice that we’ve been there. You don’t even need to be home during the application.
Martin’s Pest Control protects your family (and pets) from the nuisance and danger of mosquitoes by focusing on the areas of your property where mosquitoes and ticks are most likely to feed and harbor. Once applied, Martin’s Pest Control provides even greater protection as mosquitoes attempt to feed and rest on the grass and plants, as the residue from the treatment will knock them down too.
All-natural for your mosquito control.
If you prefer to avoid all synthetics, Martin’s Pest Control offers an all-natural solution as an ideal alternative for mosquito control.
While our Barrier Protection Spray works primarily as a mosquito and tick eliminator, our all-natural treatment eliminates pests on contact and then continues as a repellant for up to 14 days.
Our all-natural mosquito treatment is applied to the areas of your property that mosquitoes are known to harbor and feed. It is made up of natural plant juices and has a fragrance that dissipates within a few hours of application.
Since this all-natural mosquito control breaks down more quickly, it should be applied every 14 days for continuous protection (as opposed to the 21-day cycle of our Barrier Protection Spray).
This all-natural repellent is not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito control solutions. However, depending on your own yard and needs, it may be right for you. And, of course, if you’re not 100% satisfied, we’ll make it right with another spray as soon as possible.
Effective and timely mosquito control for all your outdoor events.
Are you planning an outdoor wedding, graduation party or other outdoor event? Don’t let buzzing, biting mosquitoes ruin your special day. Our special events spray will keep mosquitoes off your guest list.

- Dries in 30 minutes, leaving no odor or visible residue.
- Is applied long before your food and dinnerware arrive, so there’s no opportunity for contamination.
