Ipswich 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, considered the most common here in the United States, has been in Massachusetts the past few years, and it will likely return. But WNV is relatively mild compared to Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE), which has been detected in our state. While it’s rare, EEE is more common in Massachusetts than anywhere else, and is potentially fatal. This is pretty scary to think about.

One would think that because the Town of Ipswich is included in the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (NEMMC), there’s not much to worry about. But nothing could be further from the truth. A municipal program like that is primarily focused on doing their Ipswich mosquito control in open areas like parks, wetlands, roadways, and other public areas, not private properties. The trucks that do fogging in the streets may eliminate the mosquitoes at the end of your driveway, but it’s not going to help your backyard Ipswich mosquito control. Rarely does their treatment even reach your front door.

Basically, relying on a public program like the NEMMC is not a chance anybody wants to take to protect themselves and their loved ones from dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses. Mosquito Squad’s top priority is keeping you, your family, and anyone who comes to visit safe from these little monsters on your own property, so you can enjoy backyard barbecues and other outside time in the summer without being chased inside or worrying about possibly contracting a dangerous illness. Our barrier spray treatment is your best bet for Ipswich mosquito control in your own yard, guaranteeing nearly 90% fewer mosquitoes for three weeks at a time or your money back.

Long-lasting Ipswich mosquito control

You know those mosquito fogging trucks that NEMMC drives around at night? Their process is called 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 our formula is time-released, meaning that it keeps on working for three weeks 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 NEMMC can say, as they’ll have driven around multiple times fogging up the air with their mosquito treatment in those three weeks.

How it works

The first thing we do upon arriving to your house is walk around your property, treating and eliminating any existing mosquito breeding sites with larvicide, which is the same kind of thing that NEMMC does in big public wetlands. However, the mosquitoes most likely to bite you are the ones that were born and raised on your own property, not in nearby swamp. So it’s important to treat the places where they’re growing, but not yet full adult mosquitoes. Our larvicide eliminates existing larvae and stops eggs from hatching, thus halting the life cycle of mosquitoes in your yard.

Then, we start treating your property from the outside inward with our EPA-registered barrier treatment, avoiding the things that bees are attracted to like flowers, but covering everything else. That means foliage and the undersides of leaves, trees, bushes, lawn furniture, above and under decks, you name it. Our formula dries in only 30 minutes, at which time it’s safe to return to your yard. Once it’s dry, it’s now adhering to everything it was sprayed upon, but don’t worry — it’s not actually sticky. In fact, it’s both odorless and colorless. The secret to our formula is its micro encapsulation, which makes it slowly emit its active ingredient over time, much like extended released medications do. Any new mosquitoes or other bugs that encounter our formula in the next three weeks are eliminated shortly afterward. Nearly 90% of the mosquito population in your yard will be gone!

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 having cookouts and playing fetch with your dog. It’s easy to forget the things, so we’ll always call a day in advance to remind you that we’re coming to treat you yard, but you don’t need to be home. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door.

Special circumstances call for special mosquito control systems

If you’ve got horses, live near a marshy or wooded area, have waterfront property, or even just want more control over your Ipswich mosquito control, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are custom designed and installed in your yard to be as least noticeable as possible, and emit a mist of our special barrier treatment formula at pre-programmed intervals of 30-45 seconds. It comes with an app and remote control as well, so you can even trigger the system at your own whim if you want to — you don’t even need to be home! Our misting systems are over 90% effective and the best part about them is that 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.

Don’t have a party without calling Mosquito Squad first!

If you’re planning an 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 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.

Looking for a “greener” alternative? No problem.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registerd, but we know that there are some people who prefer to go as all-natural as possible whenever necessary. That’s why we developed our all-natural barrier treatment which we mix in-house and is based on essential oils.

Rather than an eliminator, it’s a repellant that “chases” the bugs off your property. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, but it’s pretty close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. Also time-released, because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly faster, so we recommend reapplying our all-natural solution every two weeks instead of the traditional treatment’s three.
