What do you treat?
Mosquito Squad’s trained and licensed applicators treat areas where mosquitoes and ticks breed, feed or rest. Treated surfaces include shrubbery and foliage, underneath decks, fences, the foundations of houses, tall grass and low hanging vegetation. Not only are our applicators trained in accordance with local and state requirements, but our in-house program educates them on conditions and situations that are specific to mosquito and tick breeding.
What if it rains right after my schedule treatment?
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.
If I have my yard treated, but my neighbor does not, will it still be effective?
Yes! Mosquitoes do not respect fences or property lines, but our treatment creates an invisible barrier around your property that makes your yard unattractive to mosquites. As you might imagine, a mosquito might wander into your yard an bite you before feeding or resting on the treated surfaces. However, you will find that the presence of mosquitoes is enormously reduced.
What type of products do you use?
All products used by Mosquito Squad are used according to the label and are registered with the EPA. Our class of products can be found in many household products like head lice shampoos, pet flea collars and sprays, and many agricultural applications such as standard treatments for fruit and ornamental plants.
Does it work?
If you don’t experience a reduction and are not satisfied, we want to know! We’ll be more than happy to provide an additional application or we can provide a refund based on our 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
