Yes. The same techniques that work on a private property can work at a business, apartment, condo, event space, and more. If your business has any outdoor space or frequently deals with mosquitoes insides, these methods can be helpful in mitigating issues, keeping customers and employees more comfortable. A larger space will need more extensive measures, whether through treatment or habitat management, which can involve more time and cost with DIY methods.
