Westborough MA mosquito control

Buzzing. Swatting. Itching. Sometimes even cursing! Mosquitoes come with a lot of things we don’t want in our lives, including diseases like West Nile virus, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), and even things once only found elsewhere in the world, like Chikungunya and Zika virus. Recently, the CDC released an alarming report stating that diseases transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled since 2004, and there’s no indication that this rate will be slowing down any time soon.

The Town of Westborough falls under the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), yet their Westborough MA mosquito control (all of their coverage area, actually) 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.

Plus, 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.

Unlike the CMMCP’s treatment, Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment spray is different. Yes, it also eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, but it also keeps working for three weeks after application with up to 90% effectiveness.

For three weeks? How does Mosquito Squad’s Westborough 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 will bother you are in your yard, not a nearby swamp. Places like tarps with standing water, or children’s toys, or even puddles in your yard are prime places for mosquito eggs to grow and hatch. It only takes a bottle cap full of water to unleash a hundreds of mosquito eggs and grow potentially millions of mosquitoes in your yard.

Next, we spray the perimeter of your yard, working our way inward, with our micro encapsulated, EPA-registered barrier treatment. We’re very careful to avoid flowers and other plants that bees like, but otherwise distribute our odorless, colorless solution on everything else, including foliage, trees, bushes, the undersides leaves, woodpiles, play sets, decks, porches, patios, and even lawn ornaments.

Our barrier treatment only takes about 30 minutes to dry, after which you’re free to return to your yard. Next is where the “magic” happens — after our formula dries, it’s now adhering to everything it was applied to. Any new mosquitoes that come into contact with it will be eliminated for three full weeks, at which time we recommend retreating the area. 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 plans 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 Westborough mosquito control, consider a misting system

Do you have a horse farm, or perhaps live near a wooded area, or have waterfront property? Or do you just want even more control over your Westborough yard’s mosquito population? If so, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems, where you power is in your hands. These systems are programmed to release our micro encapsulated formula at designated intervals for 30 seconds, and you’e got control to release it at any time with the press of a button via the included remote control. This tactic ensures over 90% mosquito reduction, and best of all — we take care of the installation, refills, maintenance, and even seasonal set-up and winterization. Installation is relatively easy for our technicians, and we make sure to place the misters in unnoticeable areas for aesthetic purposes.

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!

Looking for an all-natural mosquito control alternative?

We can definitely accommodate. Even though all of our products are registered with the EPA, we know that some people are still nervous 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.
