I had quite a few friends get engaged over the holidays and weddings are in full planning. Brides go to great lengths to create a special day for their husbands and guests alike. For some, no details go unnoticed, but for others, things slip through the cracks. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, graduation party or other outdoor event, let us give you a helpful hint: don’t forget about the mosquitoes.
I’ve been to a lot of weddings and outdoor events. Some I remember more than others. Last year my husband and I attended an outdoor wedding at a Virginia plantation. It was beautiful. I don’t remember the food or flowers, but I remember it being a great night. One thing I won’t forget, however, is the amount of mosquitoes. They loved me that night, and I was itching the bites for days!
At Mosquito Squad, we help hosts, event planners and caterers make their events a success by ridding the property of mosquitoes with our mosquito control services.
Our typical mosquito treatments for the yard reduce a property’s mosquito population by up to 90%. The same product is used for our events mist ensuring that mosquitoes are left off the guest list. Depending on the area of the country and the seriousness of the mosquito problem, one or two sprays prior to the event will be recommended. Our trained technicians will come to the event space and mist the vegetation and areas where the mosquitoes are known to feed and harbor. They will pay particular attention to the areas where guests will gather outdoors, too.
Typically, members of the Squad will visit the property 24-48 hour prior to the event to mist. The product will eliminate any mosquitoes on contact and provide continuous protection as mosquitoes feed on the treated plants. If the mosquito problem is especially bad, they will come out twice.
If you’re planning a special event, reach out to your local Mosquito Squad office to discuss your mosquito treatment options. We’re happy to help you as you create the perfect outdoor event.
