These are some of the most fequesntly asked pest control questions that we get each year.
Yes, and we guarantee it. While no service can offer 100% protection from every mosquito and tick, you should notice a reduction of 85%- 90% in the mosquito and tick population in your yard. If you don’t experience this reduction and are not satisfied, we’ll provide another application free of charge or you can get a refund based on our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Our most popular service is the 21-day Barrier Spray program. Mosquito Squad applicators treat standing water and any other potential mosquito breeding sites with larvacide to eliminate any existing larvae and to greatly reduce future mosquito hatchings. Then our applicators will treat key areas in your outdoor space to eliminate any adult mosquitoes and ticks and establish a barrier against any mosquitoes that enter your yard thereafter. Mosquito Squad will then return to your property approximately every 21 days to maintain the barrier against mosquitoes and ticks.
Each Mosquito Squad treatment lasts for approximately 21 days. Our applicators treat areas where mosquitoes feed, breed and rest. When they attempt to feed or rest on treated surfaces, the residual spray will eliminate them.
Yes! Mosquitoes do not respect fences or property lines, but our product creates an invisible barrier around your property that makes your yard unattractive to mosquitoes. As you might imagine, a mosquito might wander into your yard and bite you before feeding or resting on the treated surfaces. However, you will find that the presence of mosquitoes is enormously reduced by around 85-90%. And remember, we back this with our 100% satisfaction guarantee
No, the product that we use for our standard 21-day Barrier Spray treatment is not organic. But we also offer a 14-day All-Natural Barrier Spray. Our all-natural option confuses and repels insects by using a scent that insects find unattractive. Fortunately, our noses are not quite as sensitive, so you will detect only a mild odor that dissipates within a few hours of application. In order for the natural treatment to remain effective, treatments must occur every 14 days, as opposed to the 21-day cycle of our standard solution
Our product is pet-friendly and kid-friendly and is actually a similar active ingredient to what is used in your pet’s flea and tick collar and shampoo to control children’s head lice. Once the product is dry, it does not rub or wipe off easily, so children and pets can continue playing as they would do normally, only without becoming a mosquito’s dinner.
Targeted surfaces are the underside of leaves and shaded areas; these tend to be protected from the rain. Additionally, when the product has dried (after about 30 minutes) rain and water do not easily wash away the treatment. If it begins raining before your treatment has dried, and you notice a diminished effectiveness, please call us and we will retreat at no cost to you.
No. All Mosquito Squad treatments are designed to be as gentle as possible on organisms other than the targeted pests. Our treatment is achieved with a product frequently used in the agricultural industry. We recommend that you treat any vegetables or herbs from your garden like you would store bought ones by washing them prior to consumption. If you would like for your vegetable and herb garden to not be treated, our applicators will take extra care to ensure that it is not treated.
