Lowell mosquito control

For all the great things about summertime, it’s safe to say we all could do without mosquitoes. No, there’s no fun in swatting and smacking and that annoying, high-pitched sound they make as they fly past your ear, and there’s definitely no fun in the itchy bites the ladies leave behind (did you know only female mosquitoes bite?). And let’s not forget that mosquitoes carry some nasty diseases. In fact, they’re the most deadly animal in the world because of this.

West Nile virus, the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States, has made an appearance in Lowell again. The City of Lowell falls under the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), and while they do what they can for Lowell mosquito control, the truth is that they’re fighting an uphill battle. They only deploy mosquito fogging trucks when mosquito populations hit a critical number or West Nile is detected, and even then, the spray that they use only knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact, which rarely reaches the end of your driveway.

Mosquito Squad’s Lowell mosquito control is different. Not only does our signature barrier treatment knock down mosquitoes on contact, but it continues to eliminate them for up to three weeks afterward. We guarantee elimination of nearly 90% of your yard’s mosquito population — or your money back.

How our Lowell mosquito control works

First we take a walk around your yard and treat any standing water or other mosquito breeding sites with larvicide, which eliminates any mosquitoes in their younger life stages. Then, if possible, we eliminate those breeding areas. While CMMCP uses larvicide as well, note that they treat big public areas like wetlands and drainage ponds. Every little bit helps, but the mosquitoes most likely to bite you are actually the ones that were born and raised in your own yard.

After larviciding, we then strap on our backpacks and get to work administering our barrier treatment to the perimeter of your yard, and work our way inward. We mainly focus on your vegetation like bushes, trees, the undersides of leaves, etc. but we don’t shy away from other surfaces that mosquitoes would land on, ether, like garden gnomes, your deck and underneath it, etc. We do make a point to avoid anything that bees like to pollinate, however, don’t worry. After about 30 minutes, our odorless, colorless formula is dry and you’re free to return to your yard.

But that’s when the “magic” happens. And by “magic” we mean what allows our EPA-registered barrier treatment formula to keep eliminating mosquitoes — micro encapsulation. Basically, it’s a method of containing the active ingredient in our formula into little tiny beads that emit at a steady pace. It’s the same process that happens with any extended release medication. So, when a mosquito lands on anything that has been sprayed with our barrier treatment, it is eliminated shortly afterward. This is what ensures you’ll have nearly 90% effective Lowell mosquito control for nearly three weeks.

Three weeks after application, we do recommend another barrier treatment for maximum effectiveness, but don’t worry — we offer seasonal packages so that you never have to worry about remembering to schedule another. We’ll always call a day in advance remind you we’re coming, but you don’t even need to be home — we’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door. Summers not interrupted by mosquitoes are much more enjoyable!

Looking for push-button Lowell mosquito control? Look no further!

Sometimes people want even more control over their mosquito problem, and that’s okay! Oftentimes people come to us that have property much more “mosquito friendly” than others, like if they live in a woodsy area or near a swamp. Not a problem. Mosquito Squad also offers automatic misting systems for these kind of situations.

Misting systems are custom designed and installed by our technicians on your property to blend in as much as possible with their surroundings, and programmed to emit our micro encapsulated formula for about 45 seconds at predetermined intervals or at your command with the included remote control and app. You don’t even need to be home! Mosquito Squad’s misting systems are over 90% effective, making them the hardest-hitting Lowell mosquito control you’ll find. Plus, once installed, we take care of everything for you — refills, any needed repairs/maintenance, winterization, summer setup, you name it. Misting systems are truly a “set it and forget it” solution to your mosquito problem!

If you prefer to stay away from synthetics. . .

We get it. Although all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we know there are still some people who are much more comfortable going the “greener” route. Not a problem. We also offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution that we mix in-house, based on essential oils.

It also knocks down mosquitoes and other biting bugs on contact, but after it dries (about 30 minutes), it then acts as a repellant, not an eliminator. Meaning, it confuses bugs and “chases” them off your property. Our all-natural method is nearly 80% effective, and is also time-released. However, because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly faster than our traditional barrier treatment, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.

Have a party and make sure the mosquitoes don’t eat hearty!

With nice weather comes more outdoor events like weddings, graduation parties, and family reunions. Alert the Squad for a special event treatment and you’ll be sure that you and your guests enjoy the party to its fullest without having to worry about being on the mosquito menu.

It only takes us about 20 minutes to do the treatment, and 30 minutes for it to dry, so scheduling around catering, tent setup, and any other party prep is easy. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you’ll have a great time without the bugs crashing your bash!
