Reading MA mosquito control

Here’s the scenario: You’re outside on your patio, trying to enjoy a nice summer evening, entertaining family and friends. The kids are playing in the back yard. Burgers are on the grill, and things seem to be going great. Then the sun starts to set, and one by one, you find yourself swatting and smacking mosquitoes. They’re so bad you end up just going in side.

Chances are, this sounds like a familiar scenario and you’ve been there before. What’s worse is that the annoying aspect of mosquitoes and their itchy bites are really the least terrible thing about them — they’re literally the most deadly animal in the world because of all the terrible diseases they carry, some of them fatal. West Nile virus, considered the most common here in the United States, has officially been in Massachusetts the past few years, and it’s looking likely to return. There’s also the potentially fatal Eastern Equine encephalitis, which is rare but fatal, and unfortunately, more common in Massachusetts than anywhere else. The list goes on.

At Mosquito Squad of Central and North Shore Massachusetts, it’s our mission to protect you and your loved ones from these scary mosquito-transmitted diseases. You’ve probably figured out by now that citronella candles and tiki torches have very limited effectiveness, as with mosquito spray. There is a better way for your Reading MA mosquito control, and that’s with Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment.

While the Town of Reading falls under the list of towns covered by the East Middlesex County Mosquito Control Project (EMMCP), it’s not a good idea to rely on a municipal program like that to protect you in your own yard. The EMMCP is more focused on wetlands and public areas like parks, not private properties. The trucks that drive around at night spraying for your Reading MA mosquito control only reach the end of your driveway, not your front door, where you greet your guests. Backyard mosquito protection? It just doesn’t happen with those.

Simply put — relying on a municipal program like EMMCP is just not going to protect you, your family, and friends from mosquitoes and the diseases they carry, nor will a program like that help you enjoy your own backyard. Mosquito Squad’s main focus is protecting people on their own properties, not public areas. But that’s why we’re here.

Time-released, long-lasting Reading MA mosquito control

The formula Mosquito Squad uses to eliminate mosquitoes and other yard pests is much different from EMMCP’s solution. It’s true that they both eliminate them on contact, but that’s where the similarities end. Their formula and process is called “adulticiding” and they even say on their website that it’s "a temporary control over the flying mosquitos and will knock down mosquito populations that could potentially be carrying virus.” Mosquito Squad’s formula is specially developed to be time-released and keep on working for three weeks after application, even eliminating mosquito eggs before they’re able to hatch. While EMMCP has residential Reading MA mosquito control services you may request, it’s the same one-zap, on-contact formula they use with their trucks, and there’s no guarantee they’re not coming back.

How our barrier treatment works:

Mosquito Squad’s technicians visit your property and first treat (then eliminate) any standing water or other breeding areas with larvicide in order to kill mosquito eggs. Then, we walk the perimeter of your yard, applying our barrier spray and working our way inward, making sure to cover all surfaces of foliage (avoiding flowers, don’t worry), decks, patios, rocks, trees, even garden gnomes. This eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, and because it adheres to whatever we apply it to, also knocks down any new bugs that encounter it. Our odorless, micro-encapsulated formula will eliminate the mosquito population in your yard by up to 90% for three solid weeks before needing reapplication. Imagine how many times the EMMCP trucks will have driven by your house in that same amount of time!

But why do just one barrier treatment from us, when you can have protection from mosquitoes all summer long? That’s why we offer seasonal packages, so you can spend as much time outside in your yard as you want all summer long, without having to worry about mosquitoes and the harmful diseases they carry.

Keep your outdoor special event special

If you’re planning an outdoor event this season such as a a family reunion, wedding, or graduation party, make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu. A cluster of warm bodies in one place at once is a smorgasbord for hungry mosquitoes, and nobody wants to have their party ruined by these biting bugs. That’s why Mosquito Squad offers a special event service, where we’ll visit the site of your occasion one to three days in advance and administer our barrier spray treatment. It only takes us about 20 minutes to do the job and it dries within 30 minutes, so scheduling around things like tent setup and other party prep is easy. We’ll be there and gone before you even know it.

Get the ultimate in Reading MA mosquito control with one of our misting systems

Want the hardest-hitting Reading MA mosquito control possible? Consider one of our automatic misting systems. We highly recommend these if you have waterfront property, live near a wooded area, or have a barn with horses or other domestic animals. Mosquito Squad strategically places misters around your property that release our mosquito control solution at programmed intervals for about 30 seconds at a time, or at your command with the push of a button on the remote control app. This tactic is over 90% effective at eliminating mosquitoes and gives you extra peace of mind. Best part of all, we take care of all installation, refills, maintenance, summer setup and winterization. The only finger you’ll need to lift is the one that pushes the button on the remote!

Our all-natural barrier treatment alternative

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that some people still prefer to be as “green” as possible, which is why we developed and offer an all-natural barrier treatment. This formula is made primarily with essential oils, and it repels bugs more than eliminates them. Most customers notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. Also time-released, we recommend re-application of our all-natural formula every two weeks instead of three.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Mosquito Squad is confident you’ll be happy with our products and services, but if there’s any reason you’re not, let us know and we’ll either re-treat your yard or offer your money back — no questions asked.
