Bloomington-Normal & McLean County Mosquito & Tick Control
Imagine it’s a nice, warm summer day and you’re out on your deck. Burgers are on the grill, kids are playing in the backyard, and you’re enjoying a cool glass of lemonade and the company of family and friends. Things are going great, but as the sun starts to set, you’re finding everyone’s swatting mosquitoes more and more. You finally give up and go inside. The mosquitoes won again.
Chances are this scenario sounds familiar to you. It’s no fun being bullied out of your outdoor oasis, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Mosquito Squad of Central Illinois can help you with your Bloomington and Normal mosquito control needs.
Aside from being annoying bugs that cause itchy bites, mosquitoes carry some serious diseases that nobody should need to worry about. West Nile virus is the most well-known, and in 2017, it was detected in McLean County. Mosquitoes are literally considered the most dangerous animals in the world, and the CDC recently released a report saying between 2004 and 2016, diseases transmitted by insects and ticks have increased by more than 300%.
Mosquito Squad of Central Illinois is here to help and protect you, your family, and your property bothersome and potentially dangerous threat of mosquitos. We know that our traditional barrier spray is the most effective Bloomington-Normal IL mosquito control you’ll find, with up to 90% effectiveness that continues to work for three weeks after application. You read that correctly! Our spray wipes out up to 90% of mosquitos and keeps working for 21 days.
Finally, Mosquito Control Treatment That Lasts
Our highly-trained technicians will come out to your property and first treat any standing water pools and any other potential mosquito breeding sites with larvicide. This eliminates any existing larvae and stops that particular breeding ground from being used by mosquitos in the future.
After standing water is addressed as the priority targets, we treat the perimeter of your yard with our odorless and colorless barrier spray, working our way gradually inward. We’re careful to avoid flowers and other bee-friendly plants, but we definitely cover all other surfaces, including foliage, bushes, trees, and the undersides of leaves. We also treat other surfaces where they like to hide, such as woodpiles, under decks and on porches, patios, etc.
Our EPA-registered formula only takes 30 minutes to dry and it takes us about 30 minutes on average to patrol a property fully. That means your family and pets can return to your yard in roughly an hour. Once the advanced formula dries, it sticks to all the targeted surfaces, where it remains effective for three weeks. Any new mosquitoes or other biting insects that come into contact with it will be eliminated, with a success rate by up to 90%. There’s no need to even worry about remembering to call us for reapplication because we offer seasonal plans, allowing you to enjoy summers in your yard while we get to work on bug elimination done professionally.
Tick Control in Bloomington Done Right the First Time
Lyme disease is the most well-known tick-borne illness, but it is not the only one. If you or a loved one get bitten by a tick hiding out in the grass around your property, you could become seriously ill! Whereas most people run away at the sight of a tick, our tick-removal experts of Mosquito Squad of Central Illinois run over to help! We have a two-step process for keeping you and your family safe from ticks in your yard.
- Step 1 – Spray Treatment: We apply our specialized formula throughout your yard, with an intentional heightened focus on tall grass that hides ticks. As with the mosquito formula, the tick spray lasts for 21 days with a 90% effectiveness. Ticks throughout your property will die on contact and be unable to lay new eggs, too.
- Step 2 – Tube Treatment: To knock out ticks at their source, our Bloomington tick control professionals will want to implement tick tubes around your property. What are tick tubes? They’re small tubes packed with chemically-treated cotton and rodent lures. A mouse crawls into the tube, gets the chemicals on their fur, and goes on their way. However, once a tick hops onto that mouse, it gets eliminated. Stopping ticks from bothering mice is a great way to stop them from infesting your property as whole.
