Spiders and Ants and Creepy Crawlers
- Oh, My!
Here at Mosquito Squad of Chester & Delaware Counties we are the number one all-stop shop for all Mosquito and tick control, prevention and protection services in the West Chester, Newtown Square and the Mainline areas of PA. However, our grasp reaches beyond just controlling mosquitoes and ticks. Our barrier control treatment can significantly reduce the number of many of the nuisance insects within your yard. This includes ants, spiders, fleas, and many more creepy crawlers that cause you to cringe or retreat indoors.
Our broad spectrum formula allows us to control many of the insects that try to enter your home too. Spiders in particular, are a concern because of the debris and webs their presence can leave behind on our homes and exterior structures. About 3,000 species of spiders are found in the United States, hundreds of which call the Pennsylvania area home. Although most spiders are just a nuisance rather than a danger, the venomous Black Widow spider can be found in PA.
Ants are another nuisance insect that can cause problems in your PA landscape. Not only can their presence result in unsightly mounds around your yard and outdoor living spaces, some species are poisonous — fire ants. Fire ants build dirt nests that form mounds, usually in open, grassy settings. They belong to the same family of insects as bees and wasps. A fire ant attaches itself to a person by biting with its jaws. Then, pivoting its head, it stings from its belly in a circular pattern at multiple sites causing pain and swelling. A fire ant bite can become toxic as a result of 20 or more bites or from an allergic reaction.
The manner in which our trained technicians treat your property plays a significant role in the effective reduction of nuisance insects on your property. We are not only aware of what types of insects to be cognizant of during specific times, but also where to treat in order to gain the most benefit. For example, we treat the foundation of your home in order to keep insects like spiders from entering.
In addition to knowing where and how to spray to deliver an effective barrier. We also know where not to spray in order to not harm beneficial insects in your PA landscape, such as bees. Mosquito Squad of Chester & Delaware Counties avoids spraying any flowering plants, trees or shrubs. Our treatment process is designed to minimize that danger, nor will any residue be taken back to harm the hive as a result of our treatment. Mosquito Squad has worked hard to ensure our products do not harm the good insects and this is solidified through the manner in which we treat.
