Mosquito Squad is your Stow MA mosquito control HQ

Few things can ruin a nice, warm summer evening in your backyard like mosquitoes. You’ve got tiki torches, you’ve got citronella candles, you’ve even got those electric bug zappers, but they still just won’t go away. You likely know by now that those methods don’t actually work well enough to notice, yet you keep using them anyway. And bug spray . . . while sometimes effective, do you really want to smell like that? You think, there’s got to be a better way to deal with these little buggers.

There is! Just call Mosquito Squad — we’re the most trusted name in mosquito control. Not only is our barrier spray treatment guaranteed to eliminate over 90% of mosquitoes in your yard, but we promise it’ll keep working for three straight weeks.

But we don’t just eliminate mosquitoes because they’re annoying (although that’s a big part of it). We do it because they’re dangerous. Dangerous enough to be considered literally the most deadly animal in the world because of their ability to carry a plethora of diseases. In May 2018, the Centers for Disease Control released an alarming 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 drop any time in the near future. Of that 13 year time period, 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 indeed been here in Massachusetts the past few years, and its rate (along with all the other vector-borne diseases) has steadily increased. It’s already back — as of January 2018, there have already been 6 reported WNV cases in our state, and that rate likely much higher by the time you read this.

While the Town of Stow falls under the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Program (CMMCP), and while the town does offer some very basic tips on how to avoid mosquitoes, chances are you’re not looking to your town’s website for that kind of information. And while the CMMCP tries to do their best for Stow MA mosquito control, their efforts are simply not enough to protect you and your family from the annoying, itchy bites and the diseases that these little bloodsuckers carry.

Why not? Well, there’s only so much that a municipal or county program like that can do. For starters, their Stow mosquito control (along with surrounding areas) is only concentrated on public areas like marshes and parks, not your private property. The fogging trucks that are deployed at night are very limited in their reach and capabilities — the fog only knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact, and it rarely goes further than the end of your driveway before dissipating. This leaves a lot of room for eggs to hatch, larvae to mature, and other adult mosquitoes that were hanging out elsewhere to wander into your property and have a feast.

But Mosquito Squad’s Stow MA mosquito control is different. We specially formulated our traditional barrier treatment to eliminate adult mosquitoes on contact, plus keep on eliminating them for three weeks after application in your yard. Not only that, but our formula and Stow mosquito control methods are designed to stop the life cycle by preventing eggs from ever hatching, and larvae from growing into adult mosquitoes. With Mosquito Squad’s proven products and services, we can guarantee nearly 90% of mosquito elimination on your property for three weeks, or your money back.

How our Stow MA mosquito control works

You may be thinking, “What kind of sorcery is this? How can Mosquito Squad guarantee that kind of effectiveness for that long?” Well, it’s not exactly “sorcery,” but science and expert methodology. When we first 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. Then, we “get down to business,” walking around your yard and 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 outside of your yard 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 — all of our technicians are highly-trained and licensed, and we treat safety as a priority. Assuming you’ve got an average-sized yard, it generally takes about 20 minutes to do a thorough application of our treatment, and we cover everything in your yard (aside from the aforementioned bee-friendly plants) from trees, bushes, leaves, woodpiles, lawn ornaments, even your deck and below it.

Our barrier 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 in the micro encapsulation. Because of its molecular makeup, our treatment adheres to everything it was applied to. Don’t worry, it’s odorless and colorless, so you won’t even notice it’s there. But you’ll know it’s working 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.

For continuous protection, we offer seasonal programs so that you’ll have worry-free, uninterrupted summers at home outside. We know it’s easy to forget when we’re coming, so we’ll always call a day in advance and remind you, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door when we leave.

Want even heavier-duty mosquito control for your Stow MA yard?

If so, consider one of our automatic misting systems. We highly recommend misting systems for those who live in woodsier 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 unobtrusive 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 the bugs away on your special day!

Are you planning a wedding this season? Maybe a graduation party or a family reunion? Whatever the occasion, don’t forget to call Mosquito Squad. We offer a special event service to ensure no mosquitoes or other bugs crash your bash.

We’ll come out to the site of the event 24-72 hours in advance and treat it with our traditional barrier spray, which doesn’t take long at all. Generally, 20 minute to administer and 30 minutes to dry, and we’re very flexible when it comes to scheduling. After it dries, you can get back to your party prep, caterers can bring out the dinnerware and food, and you’ll know that your guests won’t be on the mosquito menu.

We also offer an all-natural alternative.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who still get nervous about synthetics and prefer to go as “green” as possible. Not a problem. We also offer an all-natural barrier treatment formula that we designed and developed with essential oils.

This solution is a repellant, not an eliminator, meaning that it confuses and “chases” the bugs off your property. It’s slightly less effective as our traditional barrier treatment formula, but it comes close — most customers who use the all-natural barrier treatment report a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. Because of its botanical makeup, however, it does break down slightly faster, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
