Newburyport mosquito control

When was the last time you were able to enjoy a nice summer evening at home and not get eaten alive by mosquitoes? Chances are, those nights have been few and far between, if ever. In a city like Newburyport, mosquito control is a challenge since we’re right on the water. As water is prime territory for mosquitoes to breed, we’ve got many more of them than other areas. While their bites are itchy and sometimes painful, mosquitoes are actually much more than a summer nuisance. They’re actually the most deadly animal in the world because of all the nasty diseases they transmit.

When the CDC released a report in May 2018 stating that mosquito- and tick-borne diseases have more than tripled since 2004, it was hardly a surprise to anyone. West Nile virus, the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States, has been confirmed in at least 24 people locally so far in our area in 2018. Because many people infected with WNV don’t show symptoms, the real number of cases is likely much higher. Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE), a much more dangerous mosquito-borne disease, was recently found in a mosquito on Lakeville. While rare in humans, it is potentially fatal and unfortunately, Massachusetts has a higher concentration of cases than anywhere else.

While the City of Newburyport’s mosquito control is covered under Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (NEMMC), there is only so much a municipal program can do to protect people in their own yards. Programs like that are designed for public areas like parks, salt marshes, roadways and drainage ditches, not private properties. Every little bit counts when it comes to the battle of mosquitoes, but you’re most likely to get bitten by mosquitoes the were born and raised in your own yard.

With Mosquito Squad’s Newburyport mosquito control, we’ll eliminate nearly 90% of mosquitoes in your yard on contact, and they’ll stay away for up to three weeks straightor your money back.

Wait, three weeks straight? How does your Newburyport mosquito control work?

It’s a question we get often. 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 our certified technicians arrive at your house, the first thing they do is treat and eliminate any mosquito breeding sites like standing water with larvicide, to stop mosquitoes in their younger stages from maturing. While NEMMC does this as well, they usually do aerial application over the big areas like salt marshes. Every little bit helps, but as we mentioned, the mosquitoes most likely to bite you are the ones that were bred in your own property and neighborhood. After we treat these areas with larvicide, we eliminate as much as we can by getting rid of any standing water.

Then, we strap on our mist-blower backpacks and start treating your yard from the perimeter inward, distributing our EPA-registered barrier treatment spray 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 — 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? Micro encapsulation, 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, making your Newburyport mosquito control more effective than anything on the market — up to 90% elimination before needing reapplication after about three weeks.

We offer seasonal plans so you don’t have to worry about rescheduling with us, which means more carefree time outside with family, having bonfires, cookouts, and just plain enjoying the summertime. We’ll always call a day in advance to let you know we’re coming to do another treatment, but you don’t even need to be home — we’ll leave a confirmation of service on the door.

Looking for heavier than 90% effective Newburyport mosquito control? Check out our automatic misting systems!

Sometimes customers come to us that have property that is more mosquito-heavy than others, simply by its location or other characteristics. If you’ve got waterfront property, live in a more wooded area than most, near a swamp, or have a barn, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems for the most heavy-duty Newburyport mosquito control you’ll be able to find. Maybe you just want control at the push of a button. That’s okay, too! Whatever your situation, misting systems are custom designed and installed by our technicians on your property, then programmed to emit a mist of our barrier treatment formula at specific intervals for about 45 seconds at a time. They come with a remote control and app so that you can even trigger the mist on demand, or adjust the schedule as you see fit! And don’t worry — we make sure to strategically place the misters to be as unnoticeable as possible in your yard and “blend in” with the surroundings. The best part about misting systems? Mosquito Squad takes care of all installation, spring setup, winterization, refills, and maintenance. It’s a true “set it and forget it” solution that is over 90% effective!

Having a party? Alert the SQUAD and the bugs won’t crash your bash!

Are you planning an outdoor wedding? Graduation party? Family reunion? No matter that the occasion, make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu with one of our special event treatments.

We’ll come out to the site of the occasion one to three days in advance and treat the entire area 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 prep. 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.

Prefer to keep it green?

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. No problem. We also offer an all-natural barrier spray solution, designed and developed with essential oils as a base, which we still mix in-house.

Like the traditional barrier treatment, it knocks down bugs on contact, too, but after it dries (about 30 minutes), it acts as a repellant, essentially “chasing” the bugs out of your yard. Most customers notice a significant reduction of yard pests anywhere between 75-80%. Also a time-released solution, its botanical makeup means it breaks down slightly faster than the traditional barrier treatment, we recommend reapplication of our all-natural formula every two weeks instead of three.
