Throughout our journey, our main goal has been to bring relief to people living with scourges of mosquitoes on their properties. We accomplish this with our three-pronged mosquito control technique. Discover how it works.
Breathe Easy – You Won’t Attract Mosquitoes with the Best Mosquito Service in Birmingham
Scientists still don’t fully understand what attracts mosquitoes to certain people more than others. About one in 10 individuals look particularly tasty to mosquitoes. Female mosquitoes are the only ones that bite because they need a blood-meal for enough protein to create eggs.
Researchers do know that part of what makes mammals mosquito magnets is the way they breathe. We exhale carbon dioxide (CO2) when we breathe, which signals hungry female mosquitoes that a potential host is nearby. This is why you might notice an increase in the number of mosquitoes when there is a group of people talking and laughing. More CO2 equals more mosquitoes.
Mosquito Shield works first by masking CO2 in the air. Our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) has natural oils and materials registered with the Environmental Protection Agency to make CO2 practically invisible to mosquitoes. This makes it impossible for female mosquitoes to find you, your kids, and your pets – forcing them to find a food source elsewhere. Masking CO2 with the best mosquito service in Birmingham discourages mosquitoes from ever venturing onto your property in the first place. Learn more about how mosquitoes work.
Play With Confidence – Mosquito Shield Creates an Impenetrable Barrier
The second way Mosquito Shield operates is by putting up an impenetrable, vertical barrier around your active areas. “Active areas” are those spaces your family uses the most, such as your porch, deck, patio, pool, or play area. Active areas are the secret to Mosquito Shield’s affordable prices. Instead of using enough product to cover your perimeter, we only need to spray around areas you use. We’ve learned over the years that this approach makes much more sense and makes the best mosquito service in Birmingham available to more people.
The strong vertical barrier keeps mosquitoes out using oils that irritate mosquitoes’ senses. The barrier repels these pests and grows stronger with each application. It’s even rain proof in light to moderate storms, thanks to our special RainShield blend. A vertical shield is important to stop flying pests. We use FlexBlend smart spray technology to maximize the effectiveness of our treatments – it delivers an even, optimized layer of spray.
Defeat Mosquito Swarms – Birmingham’s Best Mosquito Service Kills on Contact
Finally, Mosquito Shield cuts down your mosquito population immediately because it kills on contact. Our technicians will identify mosquito hotspots, such as tall grass or muddy areas. We’ll spray these locations to kill existing mosquito swarms, larvae, and eggs. Your family can play the same day we spray and instantly enjoy significantly fewer mosquitoes.

Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted mosquitos and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitos and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
