The Benefits of Mosquito Spraying in Ham Lake
Ham Lake is a beautiful place to live, but its vicinity to the lake can mean hordes of mosquitoes in the summertime. Mosquitoes flock to bodies of water, where females lay their eggs. Mosquitoes can carry life-threatening diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, West Nile virus, and the most recent with proven links to mosquito bites – the Zika virus, which can cause microcephaly in newborns if an infected mosquito bites an expecting mother. Learn more about this mosquito-borne disease.
Bug sprays, ultraviolet bug lights, and sticky tape are typically ineffective against mosquitoes. Carbon dioxide, which humans and animals exhale, attracts mosquitoes. Only Mosquito Shield’s special MPB has the power to mask CO2 on a property, making it less appealing to hungry female mosquitoes. Instead of wasting money on methods that won’t really protect your property, come to the leaders for mosquito spraying in Ham Lake. Our solutions will protect your family from harmful insect-borne diseases.
Furthermore, with mosquito spraying, you can enjoy your yard again without fear of a mosquito attack. Your children and pets can play outdoors without needing to load up on harsh chemical bug repellants to prevent bites. No more slapping at mosquitoes and scratching welts where mosquitoes drew blood. You can swim in the pool, play on the lawn, and host barbecues this summer without unwelcome insect guests – all with simple mosquito spraying in Ham Lake.
Research-Backed Mosquito Spraying in Ham Lake
Thanks to more than 15 years of research, Mosquito Shield has a thorough understanding of the science behind mosquito control. We know mosquito biology and behavior, and we created our products to effectively destroy mosquitoes and keep them out for good. We use a three-pronged process to ensure the success of our treatments: We eradicate existing swarms, mask CO2, and create a chemical barrier to keep out future mosquitoes.

At Mosquito Shield, we’ve learned over the years that there is no such thing as a single treatment that eradicates mosquitoes. The way to enjoy a permanently pest-free home and yard is with regular treatments. We offer flexible scheduling programs to revisit your property and reapply the MPB for the best possible results.
Thanks to our state-of-the-art routing technology, we can easily deliver on the promise of offering flexible schedules. Simply pick dates that work best for you, and we’ll take care of the rest. We typically reapply our mosquito control solutions every 10 to 17 days for the most-effective mosquito eradication.

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.
