I have recently had discussions with two next door neighbors in Frederick, MD. They both believe that a business behind their properties creates a breeding ground for mosquitoes. I treated one neighbor’s yard for mosquitoes on April 27, 2010. On May 1, 2010 his neighbor called after seeing our yard sign. He signed up for a spray and asked that I “saturate” his yard on May 7, 2010 so it would be mosquito free when he returned from a trip. I asked that neighbor if he had seen mosquitoes yet. He replied that his yard had been infested with mosquitoes the night before on April 30, 2010.
When I arrived at his house to provide the barrier spray treatment I spoke to the first neighbor I treated. I asked him how things had gone since I treated his house on April 27, 2010. He said he had only seen a couple mosquitoes and had not been bitten once since I treated his house.
How could one neighbor have a bad mosquito problem on April 30, 2010 while his next door neighbor had only a couple mosquitoes in ten days? We treated the first yard on April 27, 2010 with a barrier spray that was designed to kill mosquitoes that came into the yard and rested or fed on any natural areas in the yard. Continued treatments will likely further reduce the mosquito population in that yard. The product has a slow release so it continues to kill for days. Mosquitoes appear to realize the yard is dangerous to them and stay away. The first neighbor we treated had used other pest control companies before, but they could not solve his problem. Of course, the other pest control company knew they could not solve his problem because they excluded mosquitoes from their written satisfaction guarantee. Mosquito Squad guarantees you will be satisfied with the reduction of mosquitoes in your yard. When selecting a company to control mosquitoes, be sure to find one that stands behind its work.
