Turn to the experts at Mosquito Squad for your Groton MA mosquito control

Before 2005, the idea of private mosquito control in one’s own yard seemed like a far-fetched, ridiculous idea. But then Mosquito Squad came along with our traditional barrier spray treatment to homeowners, which was so popular of an idea that it didn’t take long for many copycat companies to start popping up. As the original company providing expert residential mosquito control, Mosquito Squad has pioneered and consistently advanced our products and services to not only help homeowners eliminate mosquitoes from their yards, but stay ahead of the very industry we created. Our top priority continues to be to provide top-notch Groton MA mosquito control to you, your family, and guests so that you can enjoy spending time in your own yard without having to worry about the itchy bites or possible mosquito-borne illnesses.

Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying, they’re dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, that they’re officially the most dangerous animal in the world because of their ability to carry many serious diseases, many of which are fatal. Scary illnesses like Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) have been detected in Middlesex County, which can be fatal to both people and horses. While rare, there have been more cases of EEE in Middlesex County than elsewhere, so it’s very important to keep this on your radar.

The most commonly known mosquito-vectored disease, however, would be West Nile Virus, which was officially confirmed in Massachusetts mosquitoes in June 2017. According to Mass.gov, a human case of WNV was officially confirmed in September 2017.

Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment is your best option for keeping your self and your family safe from mosquito-born illnesses. At the same time, you won’t have to worry about the annoying buzzing and swatting that come with these little bugs.

Long-lasting Groton MA Mosquito Control with up to 90% Effectiveness

Many homeowners think that because Groton MA mosquito control falls under the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), they’re in the clear. But nothing could be further from the truth. Reality is that municipal programs like CMMCP are primarily focused on mosquito elimination in public areas like marshes, parks, storm drains, and other open areas like rivers and streams. Their methods of mosquito control are rarely effective in private properties like your yard, and the formula they use (called “adulticide”) only eliminates existing adult mosquitoes on contact. That leaves a lot of room and opportunity for mosquito eggs to hatch, and other mosquitos to move in from other areas.

Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment spray is different. Yes, it also eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, but it also keeps working for three weeks after application with up to 90% effectiveness.

Here’s how it works:

To start, we take a walk around your property and treat any standing water pools or other potential mosquito breeding areas with larvicide to eliminate any existing larvae and prevent future mosquitoes. Then we spray the perimeter of your yard, working our way inward, with our barrier treatment. We’re very careful to avoid flowers and other bee-friendly plants, but otherwise distribute our odorless, colorless formula on everything else, including foliage, trees, bushes, leaves, woodpiles, decks, porches, patios, and even garden gnomes.

Mosquito Squad’s EPA-registered formula only takes about 30 minutes to dry, after which you’re free to use your yard again. Here’s where the “magic” happens — after our formula dries, it’s now sticking to everything it was applied to. Any new mosquitoes that come into contact with it will be eliminated for three weeks, at which time the treatment should be reapplied. This method of Groton MA mosquito control is guaranteed to reduce the mosquito population in your yard by up to 90%. We know it’s easy to slip people’s minds to reschedule another treatment, so we offer seasonal barrier treatment plans so you can enjoy summers in your yard without needing to worry about rescheduling with us. The buzzing and the biting of the bugs in your yard? You won’t miss it.

Keep your guests off the mosquito menu with our special event service

Have you ever been to an outdoor party such as a wedding or family reunion, and the mosquitoes were so bad that you couldn’t even enjoy it? You may have even left early. Well, we don’t want that to happen to you. Mosquito Squad offers a special event service to ensure your outdoor special event isn’t one of those parties. Your guests should remember it for the good times, not the mosquitoes. We’re easy to work with as far as scheduling goes, and will come out to the site of the event one to three days in advance and treat the area with our traditional barrier spray. Because it only takes us about 20 minutes to administer it and 30 minutes for the treatment to dry, we’ll be in and out before you know it. Then you can go back to setting up the event with caterers, tent setup people, and other event preparation. With Mosquito Squad’s special event mosquito control service, the only guests at your party will be the invited ones.

For the heaviest-hitting Groton MA mosquito control, consider a misting system

Do you have a horse farm, live near a wooded or marshy area, have waterfront property, or simply want more Groton MA mosquito control? If so, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are relatively easy for our technicians to install, and the misters are strategically placed around your property to blend in and be as camouflage as possible. At specified intervals, the system releases a mist of our micro encapsulated formula for about 30 seconds. Or, at your command with the included remote control app. You can even trigger the system to go off when you’re not at home. 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. The only finger you need to lift is the one to trigger the system if you want to!

Prefer an all-natural alternative?

We can definitely accommodate. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green.” That’s why we offer an all-natural barrier spray treatment that we developed with essential oils. It acts more of a repellant than an eliminator, but most homeowners notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80% with this formula. Also a time-released solution, we recommend treatments every two weeks instead of the three that the traditional treatment entails.
