We’re your Pepperell mosquito control HQ

How many times have the mosquitoes chased you back inside the house while you were just trying to enjoy a nice summer evening in the backyard? The whizzing sound they make when they fly by your face and the itchy bites may be annoying, but the real dangers of mosquitoes are the diseases they carry. Mosquito-borne illnesses like West Nile virus, and rare, but often fatal Eastern equine encephalitis are only a couple of the scary things in Massachusetts we need to worry about. The CDC released a report in May 2018 stating that diseases from mosquitoes and ticks more than tripled since 2004, and there’s no indication that rate is slowing down.

By now you know that citronella candles and tiki torches have very limited effectiveness, as with mosquito spray. There is a better way for your Pepperell mosquito control and that’s with Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment.

While the Town of Pepperell falls under the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) that works to protect the public from mosquitoes, CMMCP’s main concern is open bodies of water and other common areas such as parks and streets, not the private yards of its residents. The trucks that drive around at night with the fogging spray might reach your driveway and the front of your property, but it won’t help with Pepperell mosquito control in your backyard, or even near your front door.

Simply put — to rely on a municipal program to protect you, your loved ones, and guests from mosquitoes and the diseases they carry is not a safe assumption. Mosquito Squad’s main focus is protecting people in their own yards, not public areas.

Pepperell mosquito control treatment that lasts

The chemicals that the CMMCP uses kill adult mosquitoes on contact. While that might seem like a good thing, consider this: If you have just ONE female mosquito in an area that the fog didn’t reach (like your backyard), it will lay bout 300 eggs in one batch. In four weeks’ time, this will multiply to over 1.3 billion mosquitoes.

Mosquito Squad’s barrier spray treatment is your best bet for long-lasting Pepperell mosquito control on your own property. Like the municipal trucks, it also eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, but that’s where the similarities end. Our specially formulated, time-released solution is designed to keep working for three weeks after application.

How our Pepperell mosquito control works

You’re probably thinking, “What kind of sorcery is this? How can Mosquito Squad guarantee that kind of effectiveness for that long?” Well, it’s not “sorcery,” but rather science and expert methodology. When our technicians arrive at your house, we first eliminate and treat any standing water and other mosquito-breeding sites with larvicide, which automatically eliminates any larvae and stops eggs from ever hatching, which is a key part of halting the life cycle of mosquitoes in your yard.

Then, we “get down to business,” distributing our specially-formulated, EPA-registered barrier treatment spray. There’s a method to the order in which we apply the treatment, essentially working from the perimeter inward, but don’t worry — we avoid flowers and other things that bees like to pollinate. You may even think we look like Ghostbusters, and that’s OK — our technicians are highly-trained and licensed, and we treat safety as a priority. It generally takes about 20 minutes to do a thorough application of our treatment on an average-sized yard, and we cover everything (aside from the aforementioned bee-friendly plants) from trees, bushes, leaves, woodpiles, lawn ornaments, even your deck and below it.

The treatment eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, but after it dries (about 30 minutes) is where the so-called “magic” happens. Our “secret sauce,” so to speak, is the micro encapsulation. Because of its molecular makeup, it slowly keeps releasing the active mosquito-eliminating chemicals. Our treatment adheres to everything it was applied to, but don’t worry, it’s odorless and colorless, so you won’t even notice it’s there. You’ll know it’s working, though, when you don’t notice any mosquitoes! Any time a mosquito even lands on anything in your yard, it’s eliminated shortly afterward. And yes, our treatment really lasts for 21 days at a time.

After those three weeks, we advise re-treating your property. For season-long protection and worry-free summers, check out our seasonal programs, which will allow you to take back your yard and enjoy your summers outside with your family and friends like you’re supposed to, without worrying about mosquitoes or any mosquito-born diseases.

Want the heaviest-duty Pepperell mosquito control possible?

If so, consider one of our automatic misting systems. We highly recommend these for those who live in more wooded areas, have waterfront property, or have barns. But you don’t need to have any of those things if you just want the ultimate in mosquito control in your own yard. These systems are pre-programmed to release a mist of our special formula for 30 seconds at designated intervals, or at the push of a button with the included remote control and app. Misting systems are over 90% effective at eliminating biting bugs in your yard, and they’re easy for our technicians to install. We make sure to make the misters as camouflaged as possible and blend in with the look of your property, and the best part about them is that we take care of all the maintenance, including refills, summer setup, and winterization. Once installed, the only finger you need to lift is the one that pushes the button to trigger the system if you want to!

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

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, graduation party, bar mitzvah, or other special event, be sure that the only guests at your party are the invited ones. That’s why we also offer special event mosquito control. We want you and your guests to have happy memories from your event, not itchy ones filled with mosquito bites.

We’ll come out to the site 24-72 hours in advance and treat the entire area with our barrier treatment for your special occasion. Mosquito Squad’s micro encapsulated formula dries within 30 minutes, so it’s easy to schedule and work around caterers and other pre-event preparation.

Prefer to stay away from synthetics?

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that some people still prefer to go the more “green” route, which is why we offer an all-natural barrier treatment. We developed this formula primarily with essential oils, and it repels bugs more than eliminates them.

While not quite as effective as our traditional barrier treatment, it’s close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. Also time-released, because of its botanical makeup it breaks down faster so we recommend re-application of our all-natural formula every two weeks instead of three.
