Turn to the pros at Mosquito Squad for your Boxford MA mosquito control

Bzzzzzzz! SMACK! Bzzzzzzz! SMACK! “I can’t take it anymore. I’m going inside.” Sound familiar? That’s the sound of being chased out of your yard and back into the house by mosquitoes on a nice summer night. This has probably happened to you quite a few times. It doesn’t have to be that way! Since we created our mosquito control barrier spray in 2005 (and thus inventing the private outdoor pest control industry), Mosquito Squad has been helping people all over the country take their yards back from mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting bugs, allowing summers to be enjoyed outdoors again.

It isn’t just the annoying factor of the swatting and itching, either. It’s about protection. Mosquitoes are the most dangerous animal in the world, transmitting so many terrible diseases (some fatal), that it’s hard to keep count. West Nile Virus is one of the most well-known here in the United States, has been in Massachusetts the past few years, and is likely to return. Aside from WNV, there are even worse mosquito-borne illnesses we need to worry about, such as Eastern Equine encephalitis, which is potentially fatal. Though rare, Massachusetts happens to have a higher concentration of it than anywhere else.

Recently the CDC recently reported that between 2004 and 2016, diseases caused by mosquitoes and other insects have more than tripled, and that’s downright scary. So what’s is a person to do? The Town of Boxford is included in the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control & Wetlands Management Project (NMMCWM), but a municipal program like that is focused on Boxford MA mosquito control in public areas such as roadways and parks, and around open bodies of water like marshes and lakes. They’re not going to protect you and your loved ones from mosquitoes in your own yard. The fogging trucks that drive around at night only kill adult mosquitoes on contact, and rarely does that spray go further than the end of your driveway, let alone reach your front door.

But that’s why we’re here. Mosquito Squad picks up the slack where municipal programs leave off. It’s our highest priority to protect you and your loved ones on your own property from mosquitoes, ticks, and other potentially dangerous biting bugs. We’re here to help you take back your yard and enjoy it like you were supposed to, free from worries about these bugs.

Boxford mosquito control that lasts for three weeks at a time

The mosquito fogging trucks that NMMCWM drives around at night are spraying adulticide, which knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact. Mosquito Squad’s specially-formulated barrier spray treatment eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, too, but there’s a big difference — our formula is time-released, meaning that it keeps on working for three weeks after we apply it. It even eliminates mosquito larvae and eggs, which halts the life cycle process. Our barrier treatment will eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes in your yard in that time. Think of how many times the fogging trucks will have driven by!

How it works

First, our technicians walk around your property and eliminate potential mosquito breeding areas of standing water, while treating them with larvicide to ensure no existing larvae continue to develop. Of course, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. After that, we start distributing our barrier spray around the perimeter of your yard, working our way inwards. We apply our EPA-registerd formula to trees, bushes, woodpiles, foliage (excluding flowers and other bee-friendly plants), and all other surfaces, including decks, patios, garden gnomes, etc.

Our barrier treatment takes only 30 minutes to dry, then you and your family are free to return to your yard. Our treatment is adhesive, meaning that it sticks to whatever it was sprayed on. As a residual solution, any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that come into contact with it will also be eliminated. This odorless, colorless solution is guaranteed to be up to 90% effective for three weeks before needing reapplication. We offer seasonal plans so you don’t have to worry about rescheduling with us, which means more carefree time outside with family, doing things like playing fetch with your dog, and having bonfires and cookouts.

Don’t let mosquitoes crash your party.

Are you planning an outdoor wedding this year? Perhaps a family reunion? Make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu with one of our special event services. We’ll come out to the site of the occasion one to three days in advance and spray the entire area down with our barrier spray. It only takes us about 20 minutes to administer the treatment, and 30 minutes to dry, so it’s easy to schedule around caterers, tent setup, and other event preparation. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your guests won’t be swatting and smacking themselves during your event, let alone leaving early. If you have any party crashers, they won’t be mosquitoes!

Have Boxford MA mosquito control at the tip of your fingers with a misting system

Do you have horses or live near a marshy or wooded area? Have waterfront property? Just want more control over your Boxford pest population? If you answered “yes” to any of these things, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are custom designed and installed in your yard to be as unnoticeable as possible, and emit a mist of our special barrier treatment formula for about 30 seconds at pre-programmed intervals. It comes with an app and remote control as well, so you can even make the system mist at your own whim if you want to. Our misting systems are over 90% effective. The best part? Mosquito Squad takes care of all maintenance, including refills, seasonal set up and tear down, and any needed repairs should they come up. Once you’ve got a misting system, the only finger you need to lift is the one to trigger the system if you want to.

It’s easy being green with our all-natural barrier treatment

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we understand that some people still prefer to go as “green" as possible and stay away from synthetics. That’s why we also developed an all-natural, botanical barrier treatment solution that’s based on essential oils. It acts more like a repellant than an eliminator, meaning that it “chases” the bugs away. Because of the natural makeup of its formula, it’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, but it’s pretty close — most customers report a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. It’s also time-released, but breaks down slightly more quickly than our traditional solution, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.

Mosquito Squad guarantees 100% satisfaction

We confidently stand behind the quality of our products and services, and wouldn’t try to sell anything we didn’t use ourselves. But, if there’s any reason you’re not satisfied, please let us know. We’ll either re-treat your property or offer your money back. We also know that smart consumers like to do their research before making a decision on hiring any company, so we encourage you to click the Google graphic on the sidebar to read nearly 200 reviews by local homeowners who have used Mosquito Squad in the past.
