Framingham mosquito control

Mosquitoes. They’re tiny, but treacherous. They’re annoying and can easily ruin a nice evening out in the yard while you’re just trying to relax. More than annoying, though — they’re downright dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, that they’re considered the most dangerous animals in the world. And in recent years, the CDC reports, diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled. Diseases like West Nile virus (WNV), considered the most common mosquito-borne illness here in the United States, has been in Massachusetts the past few years, and its return is inevitable. Yet, WNV is mild compared to the rare, but often fatal Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE), which has been detected in our state. Unfortunately, EEE is more common in Massachusetts than anywhere else, which isn’t exactly something we’d like to brag about.

So what’s a person to do? The City of Framingham does fall under the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project (EMMCP), but have you noticed that for all the Framingham mosquito control efforts that they do, you’re still getting bitten at home? There’s a reason for that. A municipal program is mainly concerned with controlling the mosquito population in a broad swath in public areas, such as wetlands and parks. The trucks that drive around at night and fog for mosquitoes are effective only as far as the fog can reach, which is usually no further than the end of your driveway. Plus, the formula that they use only knock down adult mosquitoes on contact, leaving every mosquito that wasn’t in their path alive and helping themselves to the tasty treats in your yard — you and your family.

Relying on a municipal project like that is not a gamble anyone should take. It’s Mosquito Squad’s top priority to protect you and your loved ones right in your own yard from mosquitoes and the illnesses they carry. Our traditional barrier treatment is the most effective solution for your home Framingham mosquito control, eliminating up to 90% of mosquitoes and other biting bugs on your property for up to three weeks straight.

Long-lasting Framingham mosquito control

The fogging trucks that EMMCP deploys use a formula of adulticide, which means they’re eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact. Mosquito Squad’s specially-formulated, micro encapsulated barrier treatment knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact, too, but unlike an adulticide, our formula is time-released, meaning that it keeps on working for up to 21 days after application. It even eliminates mosquito eggs so that they never hatch and further populate your yard. Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment will eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes in your yard in that time. That’s much more than EMMCP can say, as they’ll have driven around multiple times fogging up the air with their mosquito treatment in those three weeks.

How our barrier treatment works

The first thing our certified technicians do when they arrive at your house is take a walk around your property, treating and eliminating any mosquito breeding sites like standing water with larvicide, which eliminates any existing mosquito larvae and eggs, which halts the life cycle in your yard. This is similar to what EMMCP does from the air in public wetlands, but on your own property. The mosquitoes most likely to bite you at home aren’t the ones born in a local marsh, anyway — they’re the ones that are born and raised in your own yard.

After our initial larviciding, we get down to business and start distributing our EPA-registered barrier treatment at the perimeter of your yard, then work our way to the center. Unlike other mosquito control companies, we don’t just “spot treat” areas of your yard — we get it all. That means we’re sure to apply our formula to trees, bushes, woodpiles, foliage and the undersides of leaves, and all other surfaces mosquitoes like to hang out. The only things we avoid are flowers and other things that attract bees. Our Framingham mosquito control spray only takes about 30 minutes to dry, after which you can get back to enjoying your yard. When dry, it’s now adhering to everything it was applied to. As a micro encapsulated solution, any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that land on our formula will be eliminated upon contact for nearly three weeks after initial application.

This odorless, colorless solution is guaranteed to be up to 90% effective before needing another treatment. 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.

For the heaviest-hitting Framingham mosquito control, check out our misting systems

If you have a horse farm, live near a wooded or marshy area, have waterfront property, or simply want more Framingham mosquito control, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are easy for our technicians to install, and the misters are strategically placed around your property to be as camouflaged as possible. At specified intervals, the system releases a mist of our micro encapsulated formula for about 30 seconds. Or, the push of a button whenever you want with the included remote control or app. You can even trigger the system to go off when you’re not at home. This heavy-duty mosquito control method is over 90% effective and Mosquito Squad takes care of all the refills, summer setup, winterization, and any maintenance needed in between it may need, so the only finger you need to lift is the one to trigger the system if you want to.

Don’t have a party without inviting Mosquito Squad for a special event treatment!

If you’re planning a Framingham outdoor wedding, family reunion, birthday party, graduation party or other special event, don’t forget about the potential invasion of insects and other mosquitoes. Mosquito Squad offers a special event mosquito control service to make sure you and your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu.

A day or two in advance, we’ll visit the site of the occasion and spray the entire area down with our highly effective barrier spray. It usually only takes us about 20 minutes to do d the treatment, and it dries in less than 30 minutes, so scheduling around caterers and other pre-event preparation is easy. Our treatment will eliminate the bugs on contact and for the duration of the entire event, so you’ll have to be the one to pressure your guests to leave, since the bugs won’t be doing that for you.

Prefer to avoid synthetics? We get it.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we know there are some people who prefer to go the all-natural route and as “green” as possible. Not a problem. We also offer an all-natural barrier spray solution, designed and developed with essential oils.

It’s more of a repellant than eliminator, essentially “chasing” the bugs out of your yard. Most customers notice a significant reduction of yard pests anywhere between 65-80%. Also a time-released solution, we recommend reapplication of our all-natural formula every two weeks, as opposed to the three that our traditional treatment would need.
