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 an unconditional 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 Spraying Near Me Sterling
Are you sick of mosquitoes bothering you every time you mow the lawn, cook on the grill, or attempt to relax on your patio? For Sterling residents, Mosquito Shield offers mosquito spraying services that are perfect for when store-bought mosquito control products simply don’t live up to expectations. The average scented candle or can of bug spray will only work in a very small space for a limited time. Mosquito Shield’s products protect your whole property. Our mosquito spraying is long-lasting and reliable protection that Sterling homeowners can trust.
Why Should I Use Mosquito Shield?
Unlike typical store-bought products, Mosquito Shield protects your entire property, without the hassle of DIY solutions. We have carefully developed a robust three-step system designed for long-term mosquito relief on any kind of property. When you contact Mosquito Shield for mosquito spraying in Sterling, one of our experienced team members will help you schedule your first treatment at a time that’s most convenient for you.
Your technician will carefully survey your property to determine the areas where mosquitoes are most likely to breed. Also, your Mosquito Shield technician will point out high-risk areas like small bodies of water and wooded areas that may get very damp and attractive to mosquitoes during the rain. Once the inspection is done, the technician will start our procedure, which will greatly reduce the occurrence of mosquito bites around your home.
Female mosquitoes (the ones that bite) find their prey by detecting the carbon dioxide they exhale. This is why masking CO2 is the first step of the Mosquito Shield treatment cycle. CO2 masking makes it very difficult for mosquitoes to locate and bite the people and pets around your home. It disorients them and sets them up for the second phase of the Mosquito Shield system.
Find A Solution That Works With Mosquito Shield
Your technician’s second step is spraying our patented solution around your home. This substance adheres to organic surfaces very quickly, so you don’t need to worry about being stuck inside while you wait for your spray to take effect. It typically dries in as little as 10 minutes, and we include Rain Shield to ensure it maintains adherence even during light to moderate rain.
The Mosquito Shield technician applying the spray will target your high-risk areas and ensure the spray adheres to all of the organic surfaces around your home. This spray not only kills mosquitoes on contact, but also generates an invisible “shield” that rises vertically from the surface of your yard, essentially encasing your whole property in a protective layer that will deter more mosquitoes from entering.
Most of our local customers who choose Mosquito Shield for mosquito spraying in Sterling report fantastic results in just the first 24 hours. The combination of CO2 masking and the first application of our spray dramatically reduces the appearance of mosquitoes, and maintenance treatments ensure long-lasting protection. Your Mosquito Shield technician will even help you set a schedule for reapplication so you can maintain your barrier. Every treatment makes it stronger.
