They buzz, you swat. They bite, you itch. It seems like a never ending battle between you and those little blood suckers called mosquitoes. It’s hard to enjoy your own yard because of them, and sometimes they chase you back inside. That’s bad enough, but mosquitoes are more than a nuisance, they’re literally the deadliest animal in the world. We’re sure you’ve heard of the mosquito-borne West Nile virus, but were you aware of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE)? It’s more common in horses than humans, but fatal more often than not. South Carolina DHEC reports there have been hundreds of EEE cases in horses in recent years. The list of mosquito-borne illnesses goes on.
Clearly, one bite from a mosquito has the potential to cause a LOT of damage. As the original and most trusted mosquito control company, Mosquito Squad’s mission is to help you take back your yard while also protecting you and your loved ones from the potentially dangerous diseases they transmit.
You may think that because Aiken SC mosquito control falls under a municipal service that you’re protected, but you would be mistaken. Municipal programs like the City of Aiken’s are designed with good intentions in mind but they are mainly focused on open bodies of water like marshes and rivers, and public areas such as parks and roadways . . . not private properties like your backyard. The trucks that drive around at night and fog for mosquitoes in the streets only have a limited reach, and rarely does their version of Aiken SC mosquito control even reach your front door, let alone your backyard. And isn’t that where your kids and pets play, and you’re most likely to entertain family and friends during the summer months?
To put it simply, relying on a municipal program is not a chance anybody should take to protect themselves and their loved ones from the dangers of mosquito-vectored illnesses, not to mention the annoyance. Your best bet for protection and peace of mind from these little monsters is with Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment.
You know those mosquito fogging trucks that drive around at night? Their formula is only eliminating the adult mosquitoes that the fog comes into contact with. Mosquito Squad’s specially-formulated traditional barrier treatment eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, too, but there’s a big difference — our formula is time-released, meaning that it keeps on working for three weeks after application. It even eliminates mosquito eggs so they never hatch, thus preventing the mosquito population in your yard from growing. Our barrier spray will eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes in your yard in those three weeks. In that time, the municipal fogging trucks will have driven around attempting your Aiken SC mosquito control multiple occasions.
Mosquito Squad’s highly-trained technicians will come out to your property and inspect it first, eliminating any standing water pools and treating any other potential mosquito breeding sites with larvicide. This gets rid of any existing larvae and prevents future larvae. Then, we’ll get down to business, walking the perimeter of your yard while administering the treatment, working our way inward. We are very careful to avoid flowers and other plants that attract bees, but treat all other foliage and surfaces in your yard, including wood piles, trees, around and under decks, outdoor furniture, patios, etc. After about 30 minutes, the treatment is dry, odorless, invisible, and adhering to all the surfaces to which it was applied.
Here’s where the “magic” comes in — because our barrier treatment formula is time-released, any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that come into contact with it for the next three weeks will also be eliminated. That’s right — one traditional mosquito spray treatment from us lasts three weeks, and will eliminate nearly 90% of the mosquitoes in your yard.
For protection all summer long, Mosquito Squad offers seasonal packages for Aiken SC mosquito control. Treatments are scheduled automatically, and while we always call and remind you 24 hours in advance that we’re coming to treat your yard, you don’t have to be home when we do. We’ll leave a confirmation of service for you so you’ll know we were there.
If you’re having an outdoor wedding, bar or bat mitzvah, family reunion, or other special event, make sure that your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu. Mosquito Squad of Augusta offers a special event service. We’ll schedule to come out a day or two in advance to treat the site of the occasion with our traditional barrier mosquito spray, ensuring a bug-free bash. Because we’re quick to administer and it dries in 30 minutes, it’s easy to schedule around caterers and other event setup. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you can get back to focusing on your party prep.
If you’ve got horses, live near a woodsy area, have waterfront property, or just want more control over the mosquitoes in your yard, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems for the ultimate in Aiken SC mosquito control. These systems are easily installed by our technicians to blend in with your landscaping, then programmed to go off at designated times for 30-45 seconds, or at your command with the included remote control app. This mosquito elimination tactic ensures over 90% mosquito reduction and puts the mosquito control power in your hands. Best of all, Mosquito Squad takes care of the installation, the refills, maintenance, and summer setup and winterization. No need to lift a finger when it comes to our misting systems — unless you want to push the button.
Look no further. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we know there are some people who prefer to go the all-natural route and be as “green” as possible. Which is why we offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution, designed and developed with natural oils. It’s more of a repellant than eliminator, essentially “chasing” the bugs out of your yard. Most customers notice a significant reduction of yard pests up to 75%. Also a time-released solution, we recommend reapplication of our all-natural formula every two weeks, as opposed to the three that our traditional treatment would need.
We firmly believe in the quality and effectiveness of our service and products, but if you’re not happy for any reason, let us know and we’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back. Mosquito Squad is in the business of repelling mosquitoes, ticks, and other yard pests, not customers, and your happiness and safety are important to us.
