Townsend mosquito control

Mosquitoes are not a new nuisance by a long shot. They’ve actually been around for 210 million years, and the battle between man and mosquito has been happening ever since humans came onto the scene. Unfortunately, it’s been an uphill battle, as they still have the distinction of being the deadliest animal in the world. While we’ve eradicated malaria here in the United States, other mosquito-borne diseases are still causing some damage, such as West Nile virus, which has once again been found in our area.

By now you know that citronella candles and tiki torches, while nice for the ambiance, aren’t very effective. And while the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP) includes Townsend mosquito control, the fact is that there’s only so much the CMMCP can do to protect its citizens from mosquitoes and their potential dangers. hey 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.

But Mosquito Squad picks up where CMMCP leaves off, and our Townsend MA mosquito control knocks down mosquitoes on contact in your yard and continues to eliminate them for nearly three weeks after application. We guarantee nearly 90% reduction in your yard’s mosquito population — or your money back.

How does our Townsend mosquito control work?

Glad you asked. Many people are in disbelief when we say “90% effective for three weeks,” but we back it up with our money back guarantee. Here’s how it works:

When our certified technicians arrive at your house, the first thing they do is treat and eliminate any mosquito breeding sites like standing water with larvicide, to stop mosquitoes in their younger stages from maturing. While CMMCP does this as well, they only do it in large public areas like wetlands and drainage ditches. Every little bit helps, but the truth is the mosquitoes most likely to bite you are the ones that were born on your own property.

After this step, we start treating the perimeter of your yard with our EPA-registered barrier treatment formula, and work our way to the center of your yard. We avoid flowering plants and other things that bees like to pollinate, but otherwise we treat it all — bushes, shrubs, the underside of leaves, decks and underneath them — you name it. It takes about 30 minutes to dry, then you’re free to return to your yard. After application, it forms a “barrier” against mosquitoes and other biting bugs. Meaning, that any time a mosquito lands on our odorless, colorless formula, it is then eliminated. What’s our secret? Micro encapsulation. It’s the same chemical process that makes some medications extended released, meaning that it emits its active ingredients gradually. Our Townsend MA mosquito control is good for up to three weeks after application, at which time we suggest another treatment for maximum effectiveness.

You don’t even need to worry about remembering to call us for re-application of our barrier treatment, because we offer seasonal packages so you can enjoy the summer outside at home and leave the bugs up to us. We’ll call the day before and remind you that we’re coming to treat your yard, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave a tag on the door with confirmation of service. This leaves you with less worry and uninterrupted summers for more fun like cookouts and general hanging out in your yard.

Looking for heavier than 90% effective Townsend mosquito control? Check out our automatic misting systems!

Sometimes customers come to us that have property that is more mosquito-heavy than others, simply by its location or other characteristics. If you’ve got a house with waterfront property, live in a more wooded area than most, near a swamp, or have a barn, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems for the most heavy-duty Townsend mosquito control you’ll be able to find. Maybe you just want control at the push of a button. That’s okay, too! Whatever your situation, misting systems are custom designed and installed by our technicians on your property, then programmed to emit a mist of ourbarrier treatment formula at specific intervals for about 45 seconds at a time. They come with a remote control and app so that you can even trigger the mist on demand; you don’t even need to be home! And don’t worry — we make sure to strategically place the misters to be as unnoticeable as possible in your yard and “blend in” with the surroundings. The best part? Mosquito Squad takes care of all installation, spring setup, winterization, refills, and maintenance. It’s a true “set it and forget it” solution that is over 90% effective!

We offer an all-natural barrier treatment formula, too!

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we understand that some people still prefer to stay away from synthetics. That’s OK, and that’s why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment solution. It’s based on essential oils, and we still mix it in house.

It’s applied in the same way as our traditional barrier treatment, and still eliminates bugs on contact, but then acts as a repellant that “chases” the bugs away after application. Because of its botanical makeup, it breaks down slightly faster than the traditional barrier treatment formula, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three. How effective is it? Pretty darned close to the traditional formula — most customers report a reduction in bugs by around 80%.

Don’t let the bugs crash your outdoor bash — alert the SQUAD!

Are you planning an outdoor wedding? Graduation party? Family reunion? No matter that the occasion, make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu with one of our special event treatments.
