Author: Mosquito Squad of Savannah - Hilton Head

No-see-ums and gnats. You know those clouds of little bugs are a big problem around the Hilton Head area. Seems they’re practically everywhere you go. And their bites . . . there’s just no way to avoid them. Or is there?

Here at Mosquito Squad of Savannah – Hilton Head, we help eliminate no-see-ums and gnats in your yard. If no-see-ums are keeping you from enjoying your yard, know that there’s hope with adding an automatic misting system. 

What are no-see-ums?

AKA sandflies, bitiges, midgies, punkies and scientifically classified as Ceratopogonidae

If you have no-see-ums in your yard, you’ll probably quickly skip over this paragraph. If you’re not sure what is biting the heck out of you, read further. No-see-ums are tiny – only 1 – 3 mm long. The females reproduce after having a blood meal from their host – you. Their mouthparts have cutting teeth and elongated mandibles to effectively suck blood used to reproduce. They are aggressive biting bugs that leave painful itchy welts in their wake.

Misting systems are your only defense against no-see-ums and gnats

Not only are our misting systems are an amazing way to control mosquitoes and ticks in your yard, but they’re the the only way to control Hilton Head no-see-ums and gnats. Why? Because when you see those clouds of tiny bugs swirling around, they’re not just flying — they’re mating. Once they become adults, no-see-ums and gnats only live for about two days, so you could say they were in a hurry. These bugs are ALWAYS multiplying, and one female can lay up to 500 eggs at once. So the only way to control no-see-ums is by continuing to attack them as they’re breeding.

And that’s exactly what misting systems do.

Once installed, an automatic misting system is programmed to release our specially-developed barrier treatment formula at designated times of the day for 30 seconds at a time. This effectively eliminates over 90% of adult mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting bugs on your property as well. But Hilton Head no-see-ums are basically tiny vampires — they rarely come out during the day. Because we know they’ll be blood sucking and breeding in the evening hours, we additionally program your misting system to do three 45-second bursts at night, too.

But the power is ultimately in your hands.

Yes, they’re called “automatic misting systems,” but you’ve got the power to trigger the system and disperse the treatment whenever you want with the included remote control. So, if you’re out in the yard and notice a cloud of no-see-ums ruining your atmosphere, just push the button and the misting will begin.

Don’t let the idea of installation prevent you from Hilton Head gnat control.

Many people assume installation of a misting system is going to be a giant, time-consuming ordeal. Not with Mosquito Squad. Once we design your system, installation is a breeze for our technicians, and we make sure that the misters are as strategically placed and blend in with the landscape, making them as unnoticeable as possible.

All service included.

Aside from being the most effective yard pest treatment on the market, the best part about Mosquito Squad’s automatic misting systems is that once you’ve got one installed, we take care of all the service for you, year-round. That includes refilling the system, any repairs needed, winterization, maintenance — you name it. The only finger you’ll need to lift with a misting system is if you want to push the button on the remote control!
