Does it matter who did it first?

Author: Mosquito Squad of Myrtle Beach

When searching for mosquito control for your Pawley’s Island, Murrell’s Inlet, or Litchfield Beach property, we know there are a small handful of companies you could choose from. So why choose Mosquito Squad?

For one thing, we created the outdoor mosquito control industry in 2005. We were the very first company to offer the service of private mosquito and tick control for homeowners on their own property. But does it matter who did it first?

Yes, and here’s why:

Some companies, a couple of which are more well-known than others, actually have been around longer than Mosquito Squad. But they were extermination companies, the kind that handles indoor pests like cockroach problems inside your home. That kind of service is very valuable, but it wasn’t until Mosquito Squad came on the scene specializing in home outdoor mosquito control and tick control in South Carolina and all over the country, that these companies decided to hop on the bandwagon and offer similar services. In a nutshell — those guys are generalists, we’re specialists. They’re good at the indoor stuff, we’re specialists in the outdoor bugs.

A few local Pawley’s Island, Litchfield Beach, and Murrell’s Inlet mosquito control businesses claim that they purchase their product from elsewhere or have a “partnership” with a large pharmaceutical company, and it’s “the most effective on the market.” You can read claims on their websites that their products last for a month at eliminating mosquitoes, ticks, and no-see-ums and gnats. That’s simply not true.

When Mosquito Squad created the barrier treatment, we created the original formula. And we are constantly researching and testing our formula and variations of it for other ways to improve what we originally created. We test competitors’ formulas, too, and no other barrier treatment lasts as long and as effective as Mosquito Squad’s — nearly 90% fewer mosquitoes and ticks for three weeks at a time. Period. Our labs do the science so that you don’t need to.

Further, it is simply not possible for any barrier treatment, regardless of who makes it, to eliminate no-see-ums and gnats for as long as a month, three weeks, or even one week, really. Why? Because the life cycle of those particular insects is only 1-2 days, meaning that they’re making more and more of them faster than they can live and die. The only way to treat for no-see-ums and gnats is with an automatic misting system.These emit a mist of our signature formula at least twice a day to get those under control, as well as mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting insects.

We are not going to name names, because Mosquito Squad is above that. But a couple companies that offer Litchfield Beach, Pawley’s Island, Murrell’s Inlet mosquito control and elsewhere in our area of the Palmetto State have websites that are peppered with incorrect grammar, misspellings, and inappropriate apostrophes. It could seem petty for us to point that out, but would you really trust “professionals” of any industry with careless mistakes like that? Is that professional at all? If obvious mistakes that are on their marketing materials, who’s to say they’re not going to make mistakes in their service of treating your property?

So yes, it does matter who did it first. We are the original mosquito and tick control company, and when you set the standard, not only are you the first “professional” in the field, you’re the most trusted and widely respected. We continue to raise the bar on our products and services every day, and try as they might, the other companies have no way of keeping up. Call Mosquito Squad of Myrtle Beach at (843) 594-2191 for the most effective, professional mosquito, tick, and other outdoor biting pest control today. No bugs. No bites. No kidding.
