      About Mosquito Shield of Central Connecticut

      At Mosquito Shield of Central Connecticut, our goal is to provide the best residential mosquito control service with the highest levels of customer service, allowing our customers to enjoy their yards, homes and time with family to the fullest.

      Owners Wade and Amy DeCesare love nothing more than spending time with family and friends. As parents of three school age kids, they appreciate how busy and hectic life can be for families. Simple, low-tech family time is often hard to come by but is the thing they value most. They always look forward to the start of summer. Most evenings you can find them in their backyard, watching the sunset as the stars slowly start to come out, while their kids try to catch the lightning bugs that dance across the yard.

      Wade grew up in Wethersfield and Rocky Hill before moving to Glastonbury in 8th grade. Wade’s family had a beach house in Old Saybrook until last year and Will, Maddie, and Nathaniel loved spending the Fourth of July in a bicycle parade down by the shore. And while, the family now lives in the beautiful farm country of Hebron, they love the distinctive history and beauty of all the different towns up and down the Connecticut River Valley. From the rolling farmland to stone walls hidden by the encroaching woods, as well as the many beautiful lakes, rivers and streams combined with stunning views of Long Island Sound down by the shore, it would be hard to find a more scenic part of the country in which to live and work. They are incredibly grateful to be able to spend their days traveling through the area to service their Central Connecticut mosquito and tick control customers.

      Long before they met, Amy helped put herself through undergrad working in a lawn and garden center in Rhode Island. When she wasn’t advising customers on the best way to get rid of crabgrass or grubs, she often worked at the local home and garden shows, helping homeowners create their own visions of a backyard oasis. 

      Wade started off by helping his father in home construction and helped pay for his college by waiting tables at The Great American Café. While both Amy and Wade have been working office jobs throughout their marriage (Amy in insurance and Wade in IT), long before they met, they both learned the value of hard work and customer service and it is important to them that their kids grow up learning those skills as well.

      They say, “Like many families, the pandemic forced us to make changes in our lives. We realized that family time is the thing we value most and we wanted to find a business that would allow us to not just improve the quality of life for our own family, but also make a positive impact of the quality of our customers’ lives as well. As busy working parents ourselves, we understand the needs of hard-working customers who want to maximize time outdoors with their family and friends. We see Mosquito Shield of Central Connecticut as a way to improve our customer’s daily lives and their valued family time with loved ones through effective mosquito control services. Our goal is to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations and become the most trusted and recognized solution for mosquito and tick control services in the Central Connecticut area. We love our community and look forward to providing great mosquito control service to our friends and neighbors.”

      FAQs About Mosquito Control
      What other insects will this effect?
      What other insects will this affect?
      Arrow

      We use an insecticide so other insects present when and where we spray may be impacted.

      However, our formula was specifically engineered for mosquitoes so it won’t repel any other insects as it does mosquitoes.

      Will the product kill plants, vegetables, or beneficial insects in my yard?
      Will the product kill plants, vegetables, or beneficial insects in my yard?
      Arrow
      We are incredibly conscious of what we do and realize how it can impact our environment if applied erroneously. That’s why our technicians are trained to recognize:
      • Plants
      • Vegetables
      • Beneficial insects like pollinators
      Will your product work after storms?
      Will your product work after storms?
      Arrow
      Yes, we have specifically engineered our formula to outlast storms. With a special polymer layer that provides weather resistance, our formula will remain effective.
      Is there any environment you cannot treat?
      Is there any environment you cannot treat?
      Arrow
      Yes, there are some areas we won’t spray to protect the surrounding environments. Pools, natural water sources, vegetable gardens, and artificial water sources complete the list.

      Because water could easily spread the insecticides, we never directly apply our product to it. However, the rest of the property can still be sprayed and it will drastically reduce the population of mosquitoes.
      Does this product work on all mosquitoes and ticks?
      Does this product work on all mosquitoes and ticks?
      Arrow
      Yes, we target aspects of mosquitoes and ticks that don’t change from species to species.

      The killing and repelling aspects of our product will work on any species of mosquitoes and ticks.
      Will the product harm my pets or children?
      Will the product harm my pets or children?
      Arrow
      Pets and children should be inside during each application. However, they can re-enter the property once the product has dried, roughly 10-15 minutes.

      At that point, there are no restrictions until the next application.
      When can I start to see the effects?
      When can I start to see the effects?
      Arrow

      Every yard is different but you should notice a dramatic reduction within 24-48 hours of the initial spray.

      With each subsequent treatment, the results continue to improve, allowing you to enjoy time outside without being chased in by swarms of mosquitoes.


      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?
      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?
      Arrow
      Mosquitoes are more abundant after it rains because standing water is where they breed.

      Adult, female mosquitoes will lay their eggs in water. Once fully submerged, the countdown begins and the eggs can hatch in as little as a few days.

      Without rain, puddles and water decrease, leaving less room for mosquitoes to breed.
