Did you know that there are 47 types of native and invasive mosquitoes in the Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra region of Florida? That’s a lot of mosquitoes. Not that we need to tell you, but they are everywhere this time of year. Due to the rise in illness that mosquitoes can carry, using insect repellent when spending time outdoors has become as important as using sunscreen on the beach.
However, at Mosquito Squad of Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra we have said before that while it’s important to use repellents on your skin in areas that you can’t control, there are better options when you are spending time at home. Our barrier sprays and misting systems will eliminate mosquitoes on contact and continue to work so that you can avoid that constant need to treatment yourself with sticky, smelly, mosquito protection. The question is which is right for you? Our barrier treatment (reapplied every 3 weeks) is fantastic for most properties. But what if you need more?
Automatic Misting Systems
Mosquito Squad’s mosquito misting systems release a controlled amount of mosquito treatment up to four times a day. It even comes with a remote control so that you can release a mist at any time you think you need it. We install it and maintain it. We even have a tankless version available. There’s no better protection in areas that need heavier protection. Not sure if this applies to you? Let us help you out a little…
