Mosquito Shield is the leader in professional mosquito and tick control. We take a three-pronged approach to mosquito and tick protection: kill current pests; mask the CO2 that attracts new pests; and repel pests from your home. Our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) represents more than 15 years of product research and development, and our FlexBlend spray technology maximizes the effectiveness of MPB.
Mosquito Shield gives you several options for pest control. We can help by killing harboring mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies and other flying insects along with ticks, and we simultaneously repel airborne insects and prevent new pest infestations. Our treatment schedules are flexible so that you see the best results during peak mosquito and tick season. We add our Rain Shield blend to each spray so that treatments withstand light to moderate rain storms.
Our licensed technicians are trained in product application, mosquito and tick behavior, and species identification. We educate our techs to “think like a mosquito” while evaluating properties to find problem areas. They will also study weather and property conditions to take a holistic approach to your pest control treatment.
More than 90 percent of Mosquito Shield and Tick Shield customers reuse us season after season. We carry a satisfaction guarantee (which we’re happy to say mostly collects dust!). If for any reason you’re unsatisfied after your first visit, we’ll give you a full refund.
Once you contact Mosquito Shield, you can expect a couple things:
- Your first visit is scheduled within five business days of signing up for our treatments.
- You’ll get an email before and after each technician visit.
- The treatment will be applied to your common use areas like pools, decks, patios and swing sets, and it’ll be applied to wherever the mosquitos and ticks breed and live.
- After your first visit, you’ll see a significant reduction in insects, usually within 24 hours of the first treatment.
- A licensed technician will come to your property every two weeks, depending on the mosquito population and weather. Treatments can be effective when done either 10 days apart or even 17 days apart.
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.
Mosquito Control for Milford Locals
When it comes to insects on your Milford, MA property, there are perhaps none more annoying than the common mosquito. These pesky insects are the cause of itchy bites, and you’ll be spending countless evenings swatting them away if you do not seek out any prevention methods. Worse still, the mosquito can be far more than a simple annoying pest—they can harbor serious diseases like West Nile virus, Lyme disease, and more. For these reasons and more, Mosquito Shield is proud to provide mosquito control Milford residents count on.
If you’ve been seeking out mosquito protection at your local home improvement or hardware store, you’ve likely noticed numerous mosquito control products that promise to prevent bites and kill mosquitoes. While products like mosquito torches, citronella candles, mosquito netting, and even bug spray can help reduce the number of mosquito bites you receive, their effects are moderate at best— and not to mention temporary. In fact, these solutions are extremely localized, providing mosquito control for only a few square feet of your property.
First Steps to Mosquito Control
While DIY mosquito solutions fail to address most of your property, Mosquito Shield’s proven three-step process addresses the entirety of your property for superior mosquito control. Milford technicians apply our patented treatment to all corners of your property, focusing on the areas most likely to harbor mosquitoes. This procedure provides much more robust protection for the outdoor areas of your home.
To begin protecting your property, Mosquito Shield technicians will utilize a proven three-step process to prevent mosquitoes from attacking. Female mosquitoes are the source of the mosquito bites that aggravate people and animals, and these insects track their targets by honing in on carbon dioxide emissions. Our patented CO2 masking technique interrupts the mosquito’s ability to sense carbon dioxide, preventing mosquito bites and denying female mosquitoes the blood they need to spawn and continue the mosquito life cycle.
Ongoing Control From Mosquito Shield
After CO2 masking, the next step in mosquito control is the application of our specially formulated mosquito spray. Our spray kills mosquitoes on contact before adhering directly to any organic matter on your property, including your lawn, trees, plants, and wooden fencing or decking. As it rests on these surfaces, Mosquito Shield’s spray continues to provide an invisible shield that prevents mosquitoes from entering your property.
In addition to our patented spray, our technicians apply Rain Shield to prevent rainwater from washing away your mosquito control. Milford residents will notice that this protection can hold up to moderate rain showers, and even prevents mosquitoes from breeding in the extra moisture that rain can bring. Both products work quickly, becoming effective immediately after application. After application, most Milford residents see a noticeable drop in mosquito activity within the first 24 hours.
After this process, team members will continue to monitor the local weather patterns as well as Milford mosquito populations. With the use of this data, Mosquito Shield can determine the ideal intervals between ongoing maintenance appointments. In general, most areas benefit from reapplication every 10 to 17 days. Each reapplication reinvigorates the mosquito spray, keeping your mosquito barrier at full strength all season long.
Why Choose Mosquito Shield?
Our technicians have extensive knowledge regarding the areas bothersome mosquitoes are most likely to congregate, ensuring the most crucial areas of your property receive treatment. When combined with ongoing maintenance, our services provide much more widespread and cost-effective mosquito control than DIY methods.
If you’re looking for mosquito control, Milford residents recommend Mosquito Shield time and time again. Our three-step system and vector trained technicians ensure full coverage of your property with a mosquito control procedure guaranteed to provide ongoing protection.
