Topsfield mosquito control

Is there anybody who actually likes mosquitoes? Probably not. They annoy the heck out of us, and bite us because they need a blood meal and we happen to be there. Annoying, yes, but they’re worse than that. Recently the CDC released a report indicating that since 2004, diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled. Diseases like West Nile virus, which has been in our area in recent years, and is very likely to come back. But there are worse mosquito-borne illnesses to worry about, too, such as Eastern Equine encephalitis, which is rare, but potentially fatal, and Massachusetts has more cases of it than anywhere else.

With scares like this out there from mosquitoes, what is a person to do? The Town of Topsfield falls under the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control & Wetlands Management Project (NMMCWM), a municipal program like that is focused on Topsfield mosquito control around open bodies of water like marshes, lakes, catch basins, and in public areas such as roadways and parks. They’re not going to protect you and your loved ones from mosquitoes in your own yard. The fogging trucks that drive around at night only kill adult mosquitoes on contact, and rarely does that spray go further than the end of your driveway.

But that’s why we’re here. Mosquito Squad picks up where municipal programs leave off. It’s our highest priority to protect you and your loved ones on your own property from mosquitoes, ticks, and other potentially dangerous biting bugs. We’re here to help you take back your yard and enjoy it like you were supposed to, free from worries about these bugs.

Topsfield mosquito control lasts for 3 weeks at a time

The mosquito fogging trucks that NMMCWM drives around at night are distributing something called adulticide, which knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact. Mosquito Squad’s specially-formulated, micro encapsulated barrier spray treatment eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, too, but there’s a big difference — 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. Our barrier treatment will eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes in your yard in that time. Think of how many times the fogging trucks will have driven by in that time!

How it works:

Our licensed technicians will first walk around your property and get rid of any standing water or other mosquito-breeding sites, treating them with larvicide to eliminate any existing larvae and preventing any eggs from hatching, which stops the mosquito population’s life cycle. After that, we start distributing our EPA-registered, micro-encapsulated barrier spray treatment around the perimeter of your yard, working our way inward. We make sure to avoid any bee-pollinating plants like flowers, but otherwise distribute our micro-encapsulated formula everywhere else. This includes foliage and the undersides of leaves, bushes, trees, woodpiles, decks and underneath them, garden gnomes — everything. Our formula knocks down mosquitoes on contact, and once it dries (it only takes 30 minutes), adheres to everything it was sprayed on. Then, for 21 days after application, any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that come into contact with it are also eliminated, resulting in a reduction of the bug population in your yard by nearly 90%. Our barrier treatment is both odorless and colorless, so you won’t even know it’s there . . . except you’ll know it’s working when you don’t notice any bugs!

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. We’ll always call you a day in advance and remind you that we’re coming. But you don’t even need to be home — we’ll leave a confirmation of treatment when we leave.

For heavy-duty, push-button control, check out our misting systems

Do you have horses or live near a marshy or wooded area? Have waterfront property? Just want more control over your Topsfield home’s pest population? If you answered “yes” to any of these things, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are custom designed and installed in your yard to be as unnoticeable as possible, and emit a mist of our special barrier treatment formula for about 30 seconds at pre-programmed intervals. It comes with an app and remote control as well, so you can even make the system mist at your own discretion if you want to. Our misting systems are over 90% effective. The best part? 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. It’s truly a “set it and forget it” solution to your Topsfield mosquito control needs.

Looking for something all-natural?

Not a problem. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that some people still prefer to stay away from synthetics all together and go as “green" as possible. That’s why we also developed an all-natural, botanical barrier treatment solution with essential oils at its base. Our all-natural barrier treatment is more of a repellant than an eliminator, meaning that it “chases” the bugs away. Because of the natural makeup of its formula, it’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, but it’s pretty close — most customers report a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. It’s also time-released, but because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly more quickly than our traditional solution, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.

Special event treatment

Are you planning an outdoor wedding this year? Perhaps a family reunion? Make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu with one of our special event services. We’ll come out to the site of the occasion one to three days in advance and spray the entire area down 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 preparation. 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.
