We use a three-pronged method to eliminate these pests for good. Learn more about mosquito control. Here are three benefits our services can give you:
Protection from Dangerous Diseases
A major concern for citizens of Middlesex County is the potential for contracting harmful and potentially life-threatening diseases from mosquitoes. While most mosquito bites don’t result in any major illnesses, they can transmit diseases to humans and pets, including:
- West Nile virus. The West Nile virus can lead to mild to severe symptoms, such as abdominal pain, muscle and back pain, fever, headache, nausea, sore throat, vomiting, and diarrhea. Over time, West Nile can cause confusion, muscle weakness, and loss of consciousness. Mosquito spraying in Westford can help you avoid and prevent West Nile.
- If you have dogs or other animals, mosquitoes can lead to heartworms – literal parasites within the heart. Heartworm infections can lead to cough, exhaustion, weight loss, loss of consciousness, and congestive heart failure. Mosquito Shield protects your pets.
- One of the most recent diseases connected with mosquito bites is the Zika virus. Zika can lead to flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, and joint pain. Contracting Zika while pregnant can lead to a birth defect called microcephaly, as well as other brain damage. Get the facts about the Zika virus.
Insects infect thousands of people and animals with harmful viruses every year. Mosquitoes and ticks are the most common culprits, spreading disease by puncturing the skin of hosts, consuming a blood meal, and moving on to another host. Visit our website for more information about insect-borne diseases. Remember, mosquito spraying in Westford is the most failsafe way to prevent these viruses from impacting your family!

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.
