Wenham mosquito control

Summertime and the living is easy . . . mostly. But when you can’t even enjoy your own yard because the mosquitoes are so bad . . . the living that easy. Not to mention, whenever you’re exposed to mosquitoes, there’s a potential for contracting a dangerous mosquito-borne disease like West Nile virus, or something worse like Eastern Equine encephalitis, which is potentially fatal. Though rare, Massachusetts happens to have a higher concentration of it than anywhere else. In May 2018, the CDC reported that between 2004 and 2016, diseases caused by mosquitoes and other bugs more than tripled, and there’s no indication that rate is slowing down.

So what can we do? The Town of Wenham does fall under the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control & Wetlands Management Project (NEMMC), but have you noticed that for all the Wenham mosquito control efforts that they do, you’re still getting bitten at home? That is because a municipal program is mainly concerned with controlling the mosquito population in a broad swath in public areas, such as wetlands and parks. The trucks that drive around at night and fog for mosquitoes are effective only as far as the fog can reach, which is usually no further than the end of your driveway. Plus, the formula that they use only knock down adult mosquitoes on contact, leaving every mosquito that wasn’t in their path alive and helping themselves to the tasty treats in your yard — you and your family.

Living can be easy in the summertime, though. Just call Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts and we’ll treat your yard with one of our signature barrier treatments so that you’ll have your own personal Wenham mosquito control reducing your yard’s mosquito population by up to 90%, that lasts for up to three weeks at a time.

Long-lasting Wenham mosquito control

The fogging trucks that NEMMC deploys use a formula of adulticide, which means they’re eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact. Mosquito Squad’s specially-formulated, micro encapsulated barrier spray knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact, too, but unlike an adulticide, our formula is time-released, meaning that it keeps on working for up to 21 days after application. It even makes sure mosquito eggs 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 our barrier treatment works

The first thing our certified technicians do when they arrive at your house is take a walk around your property, treating and eliminating any mosquito breeding sites like standing water with larvicide, which eliminates any existing mosquito larvae and eggs, which halts the life cycle in your yard. This is similar to what NEMMC does in public wetlands, but on your own property. The mosquitoes most likely to bite you at home aren’t the ones born in a local marsh, anyway — they’re the ones that are born and raised in your own yard.

After our initial larviciding, we start distributing our EPA-registered barrier treatment at the perimeter of your yard, then work our way to the middle. Unlike other mosquito control companies, we don’t just “spot treat” areas of your yard — we get it all. That means we’re sure to apply our formula to trees, bushes, woodpiles, foliage and the undersides of leaves, and all other surfaces, even your lawn ornaments. (That cute garden gnome doesn’t mind, trust us. He’s happy to not have mosquitoes landing on him, too.) The only things we avoid are flowers and other things that attract bees.

Our Wenham mosquito control spray only takes about 30 minutes to dry, then you’re free to return to your yard. When dry, it is now a colorless and odorless barrier on everything it was sprayed upon. As a micro encapsulated solution, it works much like any extended-release prescription you might get — the active ingredients gradually work at a steady pace. So any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that land on our formula for the next three weeks will be eliminated upon contact.

Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment is guaranteed to be up to 90% effective for up to three weeks before needing another treatment. 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 playing fetch with your dog, and having bonfires and cookouts.

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

If you have a horse farm, live near a wooded or marshy area, have waterfront property, or simply want more Wenham mosquito control, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are easy for our technicians to install, and the misters are strategically placed around your property to be as camouflaged as possible. At specified intervals, the system releases a mist of our micro encapsulated formula for about 30 seconds. Or, at your command whenever you want with the included remote control. You can even trigger the system to go off when you’re not at home with the app that comes with it. This heavy-duty mosquito control method is over 90% effective and Mosquito Squad takes care of all the refills, summer setup, winterization, and any maintenance needed in between it may need, so the only finger you need to lift is the one to trigger the system if you want to.

We’re extremely confident in the effectiveness of our products and quality of our service, but if there’s any reason you’re not happy, please let us know.

Having an outdoor bash? Don’t let the mosquitoes crash!

Do you have an outdoor party coming up? Maybe you’re planning a wedding, graduation party, or even a family reunion? No matter what the occasion, don’t overlook a small detail that can make a BIG difference — one of our special event mosquito treatments. Give us a call and let us know the when and where of your event (it doesn’t have to be your house) and we’ll schedule a time to come out to the site 24-72 hours in advance and treat the entire area with our barrier spray.

It usually only takes us about 20 minutes to apply (depending on the size of the site), and 30 minutes to dry, so we’re easy to schedule between caterers, tent setup, and any other party prep. With a Mosquito Squad special event service, your guests will be having fun and focusing on the memories being made, not swatting mosquitoes and getting eaten alive. If there are any party crashers, you can be sure they won’t be of the insect variety!

Looking for a “greener” alternative? No problem.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, 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.
