Mosquito larvacide, tick abatement and education on preventive measures you can take.
Dangerous mosquitoes thrive in wet places
While spraying mosquito repellent or a mosquito pesticide is usually the main course of action, other measures should often be taken. Your Mosquito Squad representative can give you complete recommendations after surveying your property.
For instance, if you have a pond or standing water, a larvacide may be in order. If you have habitat favorable to field mice, tick tube distribution may be called for. Insect breeding grounds and hiding spaces may need to be altered or removed.
Your Mosquito Squad representative can walk your property with you, pointing out water-collecting objects that should be tipped, tossed or turned over; tick habitat that should be mowed or removed; and areas of concern than can be isolated through savvy landscape management.
Tick and mosquito control that strives to respect the environment.
Mosquito Squad is dedicated to making the least possible environmental impact while keeping your family safe from insect-borne disease. We evaluate the use of a product not only for its effectiveness, but for features like its ability to breakdown naturally, to bind to the soil rather than enter the water table, or to treat targeted pests without seriously harming other organisms. Every mosquito- or tick-control product has its pluses and minuses. There are no perfect solutions. But, we strive to get as close to perfect as possible.
