The battle between mankind vs mosquito has been going on since the very beginning of our existence. Actually, mosquitoes were here way before us — it’s estimated that they’ve been around for 210 million years! It’s hard to believe that we haven’t been able to win the war against the deadliest animal in the world but in 2005, Mosquito Squad came along and made that battle much easier to fight. When we created our signature barrier treatment spray, we created an unprecedented service and product that allowed homeowners to eliminate nearly 90% of mosquitoes in their yards, for up to three weeks at a time.
When the CDC reported in May 2018 that diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled since 2004, suddenly it was a wakeup call to many people. More people realized that mosquitoes weren’t just annoying things that left you with itchy bites in the summertime, they were more dangerous than originally thought. West Nile virus, the most common mosquito-borne disease in the United States, is once again here in Massachusetts, and while Eastern Equine encephalitis is relatively rare and much more serious, Massachusetts has a higher concentration of cases than anywhere else.
The most effective way to protect yourself from mosquito-borne illnesses at home isn’t by spraying yourself head to toe with bug spray or lighting a citronella candle. It’s by avoiding mosquitoes all together. With Mosquito Squad’s Woburn mosquito control, we’ll eliminate nearly 90% of the mosquitoes in your yard for up to 21 days at a time — or your money back.
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. We first eliminate and treat any standing water and other mosquito-breeding sites on your property with larvicide, which automatically eliminates any larvae and stops eggs from ever hatching. This 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. We’ll never know if you’re laughing at us from inside your house.) 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.
Our Woburn mosquito control 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 with the dried solution on it, it will be eliminated. 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. You’ll be able 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.
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 Woburn mosquito control you’ll be able to find. We’re talking over 90% effective! 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 our barrier treatment formula at specific intervals for about 45 seconds at a time. They come with a remote control and an app so that you can even trigger the mist on demand; you don’t even need to be home! Don’t worry — we make sure to incorporate the misters so that they blend in with your yard and surroundings. The best part? Mosquito Squad takes care of all installation, spring setup, winterization, refills, and maintenance. You don’t need to lift a finger with our misting systems, unless you want to push the button to trigger the mist!

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, and still mix in-house.
While it eliminates bugs on contact like the traditional barrier treatment, after it dries, this formula is a repellant, not an eliminator, meaning that it confuses and “chases” the bugs off your property. It’s a little more subtle than our traditional barrier treatment formula, but 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.
Have you ever been to an outdoor party such as a wedding or family reunion, and the mosquitoes were so bad that you couldn’t even enjoy it? You may have even left early. Well, we don’t want that to happen to you. Mosquito Squad offers a special event service to ensure your outdoor special event isn’t one of those parties and your guests remember it for the good times, not the mosquitoes.
We’re easy to work with as far as scheduling goes, and will come out to the site of the event one to three days in advance and treat the area with our traditional barrier spray. Because it only takes us about 20 minutes to distribute and 30 minutes for it to dry, we’ll be in and out before you know it. Then you can go back to setting up the event with caterers, tent setup people, and other event preparation. With Mosquito Squad’s special event Woburn mosquito control service, the only guests at your party will be the invited ones.
