At Mosquito Squad of Savannah – Hilton Head, we want to make sure that you’re protected from the bites of mosquitoes and other bugs as much as possible. Which is why we’re emphatic about our mosquito barrier spray protection, which will eliminate between 85%-90% of mosquitoes and ticks in your yard for three weeks at a time (or all season with one of our seasonal plans).
While that’s incredibly impressive, there’s an even more effective method of getting rid of mosquitoes and ticks in your yard, that also eliminates gnats and no-see-ums. That method is with an automatic misting system.
Why might you need a Hilton Head or Savannah mosquito misting system?
Many homeowners in the Savannah – Hilton Head area have beautiful backyards that they’d love to enjoy, but often can’t because our particular climate is especially conducive to gnats and no-see-ums. Unfortunately, while our traditional barrier treatment is great at eliminating mosquitoes and ticks for 21 days straight, a barrier treatment will not work on gnats and no-see-ums. Why? Because the lifecycle of these tiny flying pests is only between 24-48 hours. So if you’ve got clouds of these in your yard, a misting system is the only way to control them.
What are the biggest benefits of a mosquito misting system?
- Nearly 100% mosquito control
- Nearly 100% gnat control
- Nearly 100% no-see-um control
- Nearly 100% tick control
- 100% under YOUR control
About that last one — while technically they’re automatic misting systems, they’re completely under your control. No need to wait until Mosquito Squad comes by for the next treatment, you can trigger our specially formulated solution any time you want. While they’re pre-programmed to go off at designated intervals, you have a remote that allows you to trigger the mists literally any time you want. Having guests over? Push the button and apply a treatment. Big holiday weekend? Just click the button and apply a treatment yourself.
So how much does a Savannah or Hilton Head mosquito misting system cost?
After installation, the largest expense with a misting system is actually the system itself that stores and sprays the solution. If you want to add additional nozzles later on, that cost is relatively insignificant in the price and overall scheme of things. The only other costs associated are refills and our annual maintenance agreement. When you purchase an automatic misting system through Mosquito Squad, the first year of maintenance is free. This covers any repairs and gives a discount toward refills. After the first season, there is a nominal cost to continue the annual maintenance agreement, but as long as you keep the agreement active, you never need to worry about the cost of any repairs. Plus, we winterize your system in the fall and start it up each spring. You’re completely covered by Mosquito Squad, so you don’t need to cover yourself up from the bugs in the summer!
So if we’re talking dollar amounts, we can’t give exact numbers because smaller yards are going to cost less than larger properties, and frequency of refills also factor into the cost. But to give you a ballpark, an installed system by Mosquito Squad averages around $3,000, but the cost of having nearly 100% protection from mosquitoes, ticks, and especially no-see-ums is priceless.
