Call Mosquito Squad for expert Hopkington MA mosquito control

The swatting, the itching, the smacking yourself. Mosquitoes are the bugs that well, keep on bugging us. But bugging us is the least that these little bloodsuckers do — they’ve got the potential to spread some very harmful diseases. In fact, in May 2018 the Centers for Disease Control released an unsettling report stating that diseases spread by mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas more than tripled between 2004 and 2016, and there’s no indication that rate is going to slow down any time soon. Of that 13 year time period studied, Massachusetts ranked in the second 20% for the number of mosquito-borne diseases reported. The most common mosquito-borne disease, West Nile virus (WNV), has not only been here in Massachusetts the past few years, but its rate has steadily increased. In 2017, ABC news reported that dead crows infected with WNV were found right here in Hopkinton. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as of January 2018, there have already been 6 cases in our state reported, and that rate is likely higher as you read this.

Regardless of how much the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) tries, their Hopkinton MA mosquito control (along with all of their coverage area) simply doesn’t protect its citizens from the dangers of mosquitoes, and they’re climbing a constant uphill battle. There are a couple reasons for this.

The first is that municipal projects like CMMCP only treat public areas such as swampy wetlands, parks, and roadways. While their fogging trucks go through your neighborhood at night, rarely does that fog that they use go further than the end of your driveway. Meaning, they can’t protect you in you own yard, which is basically a safe haven for the bugs beyond the fog’s reach.

In addition, while CMMCP does use larvicide in swampy areas to combat the growth of the young mosquito population, the most likely places those larvae are going to develop into grownup mosquitoes that are a danger to you isn’t those swamps — it’s your own property. Further, the fogging spray that they use only kills adult mosquitoes on contact. There are plenty of other mosquitoes elsewhere that the fog doesn’t get, who are happy to keep moving in and around once the fog settles, looking for their next meal.

But Mosquito Squad’s Hopkinton MA mosquito control is different. Yes, our barrier treatment spray formula knocks down adult mosquitos on contact, but it keeps on working three weeks after application, and eliminates nearly 90% of mosquitoes in your yard.

Wait, what? How does Mosquito Squad’s Hopkinton MA mosquito control work?

That’s a question we get often. People are amazed that our barrier treatment spray is that effective and lasts that long. But we guarantee it. Here’s how it works:

First we take a walk around your property and get rid of any standing water pools and treat those areas with larvicide. This gets rid of any larvae (future adult mosquitoes) and their eggs. As we said, the CMMCP’s larvicide is distributed in marshy public areas, and the places where the larvae will grow into adult mosquitoes that bother you isn’t there — it’s in your yard. Places like tarps with standing water, or children’s toys, or even puddles are prime places for mosquito eggs to grow and hatch. It only takes a bottle cap full of water to unleash a ridiculous amount of mosquito eggs and grow potentially millions of mosquitoes in your yard.

Once we do that, we treat the rest of your yard with our specially formulated, signature barrier treatment spray. We work from the perimeter inward and cover all surfaces except bee-friendly plants like flowers. We get bushes, trees, the underside of leaves, woodpiles, children’s play sets, patios, doghouses, garden gnomes — you name it, and we treat it. Mosquito Squad’s EPA-registered formula is both odorless and colorless, and dries in only 30 minutes. After that, you and your family can get back to enjoying your yard. While we spray, we’re knocking down adult mosquitoes on contact, but once it’s dry, it keeps on working. The “secret” to our Hopkinton mosquito control isn’t really a secret at all, though — it’s micro encapsulation. With this molecular makeup, our solution adheres to everything it was sprayed on, creating an invisible fence or “barrier” against mosquitoes. And when any of those little buggers even land on anything with the treatment on it, whether it be a leaf or the railing of your deck, it is eliminated shortly afterward.

It’s with this process and our micro encapsulated formula that Mosquito Squad is able to guaranteenearly 90% elimination of the mosquitoes in your yard for three weeks straight. For continuous protection, we offer seasonal packages so you can enjoy worry-free, uninterrupted summers. We’ll always call a day ahead of time to remind you that we’re coming, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave confirmation of service on your door.

For maximum Hopkinton MA mosquito control at the push of a button, check out our misting systems

We also offer automatic misting systems for those people who want the ultimate control over their yard’s bug population. If you in an area that is more wooded than others, have lakefront property or live near a wetland, or even if you’ve got a barn, we highly recommend these for the hardest-hitting mosquito control on your property. They’re easy for our technicians to install, and are programmed to release a mist of our barrier spray treatment for about 30 seconds at designated intervals. They also come with a remote control app that allows you to trigger the mist any time you want — you don’t even need to be home. Our technicians will install the system and place the misters to blend in with your property as much as possible, and the best part about our automatic misting systems is that they’re completely maintained by us. If there are any problems, or if it needs a refill, we’re alerted on our end so we can come out and give it attention as soon as possible. We also take care of the summer startup of the system and the winterization. Our misting systems are over 90% effective and truly a “set it and forget it” way of going about enjoying your yard without having to worry about the bugs.

Having a party? Don’t forget to call Mosquito Squad to keep the bugs away!

There’s a lot of thought and planning that goes into throwing a big get-together. Whether it’s a wedding, graduation party, family reunion, company picnic, or any other gathering, sometimes missing little details can create big consequences. "Little details” like mosquitoes can absolutely ruin a good time, so that’s why we offer our special event service that ensures that bugs don’t crash your bash and your guests don’t get “eaten alive,” or worse — leave early.

Just give us a call and we’ll schedule to come out to the site of the event 24-72 hours in advance and treat the whole area with our traditional barrier spray. It generally takes us about 20 minutes to do the treatment (depending on the size of the site, of course), and it dries in a half hour, meaning there’s plenty of time to schedule around caterers, tent setup, and other party prep. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu. Cheers to that!

Prefer to avoid synthetics all together? Ask about our all-natural solution.

Even though all of our products are registered with the EPA, we know that some people are still leery about synthetic treatments and insist on going as “green” as possible. That’s not a problem. We developed a special all-natural barrier treatment formula for that very reason. This eco-friendly alternative is composed mostly of essential oils, and is more of a repellant than an eliminator, which confuses and repulses the bugs and makes them flee your yard.

It’s slightly less effective than our traditional barrier spray, but it’s very close — the majority of customers who use this method report anywhere between 65-80% reduction of yard pests. It’s also a time-released solution, but because of its botanical makeup, breaks down a little more quickly than the traditional formula, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
