Mosquitoes are annoying insects that can buzz around your backyard cookouts, bother you while doing yard work, and generally disrupt the time you spend outdoors on your own property. They can also inflict itchy bites and spread infectious diseases. If you’re tired of mosquitoes around your home, it’s important to find a solution to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood effectively. While most store-bought products and treatments are ineffective, Mosquito Shield offers a way to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood that’s simple, straightforward, and effective for your whole property.
Most conventional mosquito management products may help you repel mosquitoes in Maplewood in small areas and for a limited time, but they cannot match the long-term protection the Mosquito Shield system offers. We have worked hard to develop a three-step system that gets rid of mosquitoes around your home and keeps them gone with a vertical “shield” around your property, not just a small area like most conventional treatments offer.
How Does Mosquito Shield Repel Mosquitoes in Maplewood?
When you sign up for Mosquito Shield’s service to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood, one of our vector-trained and experienced technicians will visit your home at a convenient time and inspect the property to locate the areas most likely to attract mosquitoes. The first step in our system is to make it much harder for mosquitoes to bite you. We perform CO2 masking procedures for our customers to confuse and disorient the mosquitoes living around their homes.
Female mosquitoes, the ones that bite, detect people and animals by the CO2 their bodies emit. CO2 masking effectively functions as camouflage, making it very difficult for mosquitoes to find you, your family, or your pets.
The second phase of our system to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood is application of our patented spray. Your technician will apply this spray all over your property, paying close attention to the areas most likely to attract mosquitoes. This spray adheres to the organic surfaces around a home, kills the mosquitoes living in the area, and generates the barrier that will provide lasting protection against mosquitoes in the future.
The final phase to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood is consistent reapplication of the spray. Our team carefully monitors local weather and mosquito activity to determine the best times to spray, and we generally visit our customers every 10 to 17 days. Each spray treatment strengthens the mosquito barrier to repel mosquitoes in Maplewood more effectively as the mosquito season continues.

More About Our Approach
Mosquito Shield is the leader in professional mosquito and tick control. We take a three-pronged approach 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.
MPB gives you several options for pest control. It kills harboring mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies and other flying insects along with ticks, and it simultaneously repels airborne insects and prevents 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.

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.
