For over 30 years The National Pest Management Association (NPMA), has been celebrating April as National Pest Management month. The purpose of this observance is to raise public awareness about the risks posed by household pests and encouraging homeowners to take proactive steps to prevent pest infestations in their homes and properties. National Pest Management Month also honors the professional pest control industry for playing a key role in protecting both health and property from significant pest-borne threats.

Our service targets mosquitoes and ticks and the significant role they play in spreading illness and disease. Mosquitoes found in our region are known vectors of West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, La Crosse and St. Louis Encephalitis. Ticks in the Greenville area are known vectors of spreading diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichiosis, Southern tick associated rash illness, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis and yes, Lyme Disease too. One common denominator all these mosquito and tick-borne illnesses have in common is the lack of an immunization in preventing the risk of becoming infected. Each and every one of these illnesses is contracted through the bite of a mosquito or tick carrying the bacterium that cause the illness, and therefore the only prevention against getting sick is to prevent coming into contact with mosquitoes and ticks. This is where Mosquito Squad of Greenville comes into play.

Our services provide protection from mosquitoes and ticks all season long. When the mosquitoes emerge during the early spring, our program can keep them at bay on your treated property the entire season. We offer the same inclusive protection from ticks as well. We combine the use of tick traps in the early spring and autumn along with our barrier treatment to break the life cycle of the tick and thus, break the chain of tick-borne disease. Our tick intensive treatment can reduce the amount of ticks on your treated property by up to 97%. Mosquito Squad of Greenville’s mosquito and tick prevention programs are safe and highly effective. We can reduce your risk of being exposed to potential vectors of tick and mosquito borne illness on your treated property significantly. Our service not only allows you the freedom to enjoy your backyard during mosquito and tick season without being bitten, it also provides peace of mind on the home front.
