From the annoying buzzing noises to the painful bites, mosquitos are irritating, but they're also dangerous. Mosquitoes can carry parasites and diseases that are especially dangerous for young and old people, as their immune systems are often weaker than normal. Plus, parasites such as heartworm can pose a great danger to the family dog. Mosquito control not only ensures you're more comfortable while relaxing outside, but it also keeps you safe. If you're wondering how to get rid of mosquitoes in the yard, a barrier spray application or misting system are two of the most effective methods.
Our most popular form of mosquito control is our EPA-approved barrier protection spray program. After application by one of our knowledgeable professionals, this treatment method resists mosquitos and other pests for up to 21 days. It only takes about 15 minutes to treat the average-size yard, then there's a short 30-minute waiting period before people and pets can return to the yard.
The treatment works by spraying areas where ticks and mosquitoes are likely to gather and feed. After a single application, almost 100 percent of your mosquito problem is eliminated, and it only requires quick follow-ups every three weeks or so for maintenance.
It's recommended that you continue the treatment program throughout the season. For your convenience, we notify you before coming to apply the treatment, and you don't have to be home while we're working. If you're not present, you'll come home to a notice of completed treatment, so you can be sure that we came by. And if you are home, we're always happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.
If you want to go a step beyond a barrier spray treatment, a misting system is another effective form of Massachusetts mosquito control. We install tiny nozzles throughout your yard, designed to spray a mosquito-and-tick eliminating mist twice a day. You also get a remote control, so you can manually spray with the press of a button.
These durable mosquito control systems often only require refilling once a year. For your safety, these smart systems detect leaks and then shut down until we come to your home to repair it. Our innovative misting system uses monitors and sensors so that we can remotely observe tank levels and spray patterns for easy maintenance and increased effectiveness.
If you prefer, we can use an all-natural treatment solution for both barrier sprays and misting systems. For barrier sprays, this ecofriendly alternative breaks down at a more rapid pace, so you'll need it to be applied every two weeks instead of 21 days. We can also use a 100-percent environmentally-friendly solution in our misting systems, made of essential oils and featuring a slight botanical scent that goes away in a few hours after application.
