Gloucester MA mosquito control

Mosquitoes. Sure, they’re annoying when they buzz by your face, and their itchy bites are no fun, but these tiny little bloodsuckers are much more than a nuisance — they’re down right dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, that they’re literally considered the most deadly animals in the world. Somehow they’ve managed to survive for 210 million years, and we’ve been in the battle against these bugs since the dawn of mankind. They carry so many different diseases it’s hard to even count, though West Nile virus is the most common here in the United States. Every year, it’s detected in areas all across the country, and every year its return is now expected. The Centers for Disease Control reported in May 2018 that diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled since 2004, and that rate isn’t going to be slowing down any time soon.

Many Massachusetts communities participate in municipal mosquito control programs such as the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (NEMMC) or the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), but Gloucester has elected not to participate. Even if it did, public programs like those only help with public areas like salt marshes and parks, and only knock down adult mosquitoes on contact. The mosquitoes that are most likely to bite you are the ones who were born and raised in your own yard and your neighbors’ yards.

Where the government programs fail, however, you can protect yourself and your family from mosquitoes and the dangerous diseases they carry on your own property. Mosquito Squad’s Gloucester MA mosquito control will eliminate nearly 90% of your yard’s mosquito population and continue to eliminate them for up to 21 days — or your money back.

How our Gloucester MA mosquito control works

Many people are in disbelief that our Gloucester MA mosquito control can be that effective for that long, but we assure you, it is! Here’s how we do it:

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!

Next, we strap on our backpacks and tart treating your yard from the perimeter inward, distributing our EPA-registered barrier treatment on as much as possible, while avoiding flowers and other things that bees pollinate. We concentrate on foliage, the underside of leaves, trees, bushes, and even the underside of decks. Basically, anywhere mosquitoes like to be. We ask that you avoid going in your yard while we treat and until our solution is dry, but that only takes about 30 minutes. Once it’s dry, our solution has formed an odorless, colorless “barrier” that will eliminate any mosquito or other biting bug that lands upon it, for up to 21 days. What’s the secret? Our barrier treatment is micro encapsulated, which means that it’s time released. Much like an extended release prescription, it’s formulated to gradually emit its active ingredients at a steady rate.

After three weeks, we highly recommend treating your yard again, to ensure maximum effectiveness. Mosquito Squad offers seasonal plans for worry-free, uninterrupted Gloucester MA mosquito control all summer long. We’ll always call you a day in advance to remind you that we’re coming, but you don’t need to be home when we treat. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door. Here’s to fun summers in the yard again!

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

Sometimes people have special circumstances that would call for more than a standard barrier treatment. If you live in a particularly woodsy area, have waterfront property, or perhaps a farm with a barn, you might need heavier protection. Sometimes people just want more control over their outdoor pest problem. That’s OK. If any of these are the case, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems, where you power is in your hands.

These systems are pre-programmed to release our micro encapsulated formula at designated intervals for 30-45 seconds, plus you’ve got control to release it at any time with the press of a button via the included remote control and app. This tactic ensures over 90% mosquito reduction, and best of all — Mosquito Squad takes care of the installation, refills, maintenance, and even seasonal set-up and winterization. Installation is relatively easy for our technicians, and we make sure to place the misters in unnoticeable areas for aesthetic purposes. It’s a true “set it and forget it” solution for your Gloucester MA mosquito control!

Having a party? Don’t forget to alert the SQUAD!

There’s a lot of thought and planning that goes into throwing a big get-together. Whether it’s a wedding, graduation party, family reunion, company picnic, or any other gathering, sometimes missing little details can create big consequences. “Little details” like mosquitoes can totally ruin a good time, so that’s why we offer our special event service that ensures that bugs don’t crash your bash and your guests don’t get “eaten alive,” or worse — leave early.

Just give us a call and we’ll schedule to come out to the site of the event 24-72 hours in advance and treat the whole area with our traditional barrier spray. It generally takes us about 20 minutes to do the treatment (depending on the size of the site, of course), and it dries in a half hour, meaning there’s plenty of time to schedule around caterers, tent setup, and other party prep. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu. Cheers to that!

Looking for a non-synthetic solution? We offer an all-natural barrier treatment formula, too!

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we understand that some people still prefer to stay away from synthetics. That’s OK, and that’s why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment solution. It’s based on essential oils, and we still mix it in house.

It’s applied in the same way as our traditional barrier treatment, and still eliminates bugs on contact, but then acts as a repellant that “chases” the bugs away after application. Because of its botanical makeup, it breaks down slightly faster than the traditional barrier treatment formula, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three. How effective is it? Pretty darned close to the traditional formula — most customers report a reduction in bugs by around 80%!
