Mosquito Control

Product: We self-test and develop the best products for effectiveness. We originated the mosquito control service and our 13-year experience provides an excellent understanding of what works best. Yes..there are many other products that are cheaper and will eliminate mosquitoes…but there’s no comparison when the Squad provides your treatment.

Safety: With our industry leading experience, we are the experts in mosquito and tick control. This expertise applies in us taking every precaution to safely apply the treatments to your property.

Will Mosquito Squad kill all the mosquitoes and ticks on my property?
No service can offer 100% protection from every mosquito and tick. As you might imagine, a mosquito from a neighboring property could wander into your yard and bite you before feeding on the treated foliage. However, you’ll find that the presence of mosquitoes and ticks is enormously reduced. And if you don’t, you can get a refund based on our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Will the smell of the all-natural treatment repel me?
You’ll be able to sense a non-intrusive botanical fragrance after the application that will dissipate soon after.

Can I get the all-natural treatment as a barrier treatment?
Yes, but since it is a repellent, we know that it must be applied every 14 days to remain most effective.

Should I rely on the information on this site determine whether I have a vector-borne disease?
Definitely not. We do not purport to be a medical authority, nor do we claim to have complete lists of symptoms, diagnostic data or treatment information. You should contact a health care professional immediately if you suspect a vector-borne disease.

Besides professional mosquito control treatments, are there steps I can take to protect my family from mosquitoes and ticks myself.
Yes! You can learn about them on our mosquito and tick pages as well as at the Centers for Disease Control.

You certainly have a lot of facts and statistics on your website. Where did you get them all?
As pest control professionals, we stay current on rules, regulations, and facts regarding insect life, diseases and control. The information on this website has been gathered from our professional experience and from credible sources such as state agricultural and health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health. However, much of the science on vector-borne disease and pest management is continually developing. There are contradictions from source to source and even within sources. We have made every effort to present what we believe to be the most current, most widely accepted facts–but, keep in mind that things change faster than we can update and conflicting scientific opinions exist.

How can the barrier treatment continue to kill mosquitoes for 21 days?
Mosquitoes will feed on plant juices. When they attempt to feed on treated leaves, the residual from the treatment will kill them.

Can I get the standard barrier treatment, rather than the all-natural treatment, for my automatic misting system?

Additional Services

Does Mosquito Squad provide any other treatments besides the barrier treatments?
Yes. Recommended treatment will depend on the needs of you particular property. You may need a larvacide, tick tubes, or other preventive measures. Your Mosquito Squad representative will make specific recommendations.

Does Mosquito Squad service commercial accounts?
Definitely! We service restaurants with outdoor seating, parks, recreational facilities, and many other outdoor spaces. We are happy to serve businesses, organizations, municipalities and government agencies.

Can I just get a one-time treatment for a special outdoor party?
Yes. We have a special event treatment available for everything from a small birthday party to a huge wedding reception. Special event treatment is provided 24-48 hours before the event and will remain effective even if it rains.

Service Coordination

Who refills my automatic misting system?
You can contract with Mosquito Squad to service your system. You need never lift a finger.

Will I know when Mosquito Squad is coming?
Yes. We alert you at least 24 hours in advance of a scheduled treatment. That should allow you plenty of time to reschedule if it is not convenient.

Do I need to be home for the treatments?
No. And we’ll leave a notice so you know for certain that your service has been provided.

Consultation and Estimates

Does it cost me anything to meet with a Mosquito Squad professional?
No! You can arrange for a free consultation and estimate with absolutely no obligation whatsoever.

Dread Skeeter

Dread Skeeter is kind of cute. Is he based on a real person?
Dread Skeeter is not based on any single person. He is a representation of the passion we at Mosquito Squad all have for protecting our neighbors from the dangers and annoyance of disease-carrying, blood-sucking bugs.
