Essex MA mosquito control

Mosquitoes can be a real buzzkill when you’re just trying to enjoy your backyard in the summertime. How many times have you been out on the deck on a nice summer evening and next thing you know, they’re driving you back into the house? Not to mention these little buggers are dangerous, with the potential to transmit a whole slew of diseases, including West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis which is rare but unfortunately Massachusetts has a higher rate of it in humans than anywhere else.

West Nile virus is being detected in mosquitoes earlier every year, which means people becoming infected is to be expected. Boston 25 News has a map that they’re always updating to show where in Massachusetts official cases of West Nile virus have been reported, but keep in mind that many cases go undiagnosed and unreported because of people not feeling sick enough to to go the doctor, or simply having no symptoms at all.

If your summers are filled with more mosquitoes than good memories, it’s time to call Mosquito Squad. Our Essex MA mosquito control reduces nearly 90% of mosquitoes in your yard for up to 21 days at a time, thanks to our specially formulated, time released formula.

For three weeks? How does your Essex MA mosquito control work?

It’s a question we hear a lot. People are often skeptical about our claims, they don’t believe that our barrier treatment spray is that effective and lasts that long, but we guarantee it. Here’s how it works:

When we arrive at your house, the first thing we do is get rid of any standing water and treat those areas with larvicide, which eliminates any larvae (mosquitos in younger life stages) and also kills mosquito eggs. Places like tarps with standing puddles, children’s toys that have collected rain, or even puddles in your yard are prime mosquito playgrounds for eggs to hatch and grow into adult mosquitoes. It only takes a tiny amount of water about the size of a bottle cap to host a typical batch of 300+ mosquito eggs, which will eventually multiply into billions of mosquitoes in your yard!

After the larvicide stage, we then treat the perimeter of your yard with our EPA-registered barrier treatment by using our special mist blower backpacks, and work our way inward. We avoid flowering plants and other things that bees pollinate, but otherwise we treat it all — bushes, shrubs, the underside of leaves, decks and underneath them — you name it. It takes about 30 minutes to dry, then you’re free to return to your yard. After application, it forms a “barrier” against mosquitoes and other biting bugs. Meaning, that any time a mosquito lands on our odorless, colorless formula, it dies. What’s the secret? Micro encapsulation. It’s the same chemical process that makes some medications extended released, meaning that it emits its active ingredients gradually.

One Essex MA mosquito control barrier treatment is guaranteed to be up to 90% effective before needing another application for maximum effectiveness. 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. We’ll always call a day in advance to let you know we’re coming to give another treatment, but you don’t even need to be home — we’ll leave a confirmation of service on the door.

Check out our automatic misting systems for on-demand Essex MA mosquito control

Are you looking for even stronger mosquito control than our traditional barrier spray? If you live in an area that’s a little more “woodsy” than others, or perhaps near a body of water, or have a barn, our automatic misting systems may be for you. These systems are programmed to emit a mist of our barrier treatment formula for about 45 seconds at designated intervals, but you also have the option to trigger the mist on your command, because they come with both a remote control and an app for your phone. You don’t even need to be home to do it! They’re easy to install for our technicians, and we design every misting system to blend in with the features of your yard and landscape so that they’re as “camouflaged” as possible.

The best part about misting systems? Mosquito Squad takes care of everything — spring startup, winterization, maintenance, and even refills. If anything goes wrong, of if you’re running low on barrier treatment solution, we’re alerted on our end by the technology and will know that it’s time to give your system attention. Automatic misting systems are a true “set it and forget it” answer to your Essex MA mosquito control needs!

Don’t let the mosquitoes crash your bash — alert the SQUAD!

Nice weather means more fun events outside. Whether it’s a wedding, family reunion, graduation party, or other outdoor occasion, don’t let the mosquitoes ruin the fun. Call Mosquito Squad for a special event service, and we’ll come out to the site of the event a day or two in advance and treat the entire area with our barrier treatment.

It only takes us about 20 minutes for application (depending on the site, of course) and 30 minutes to dry, so fitting us in between caterers, tent setup, and other party prep is easy. Your event will be mosquito-free and memorable for all the right reasons, not because of the bugs!

Prefer to stay on the “greener” side of things?

All of Mosquito Squads products are EPA-registered, but we understand that some people prefer to go the all-natural route. This is why we also offer an organic barrier spray option as well as our traditional treatment. We devised this formula based on essential oils, and instead of eradicating yard pests, it repels them.

Also time-released, our all-natural formula usually needs applying every two weeks instead of three. It’s still incredibly powerful — most customers notice a significant reduction in yard pests, usually around 80%. Mosquito Squad’s all-natural barrier spray is the perfect option for your eco-friendly home.
