Mosquitoes are incredibly annoying for everyone when it comes to outdoor activities in the warmer months. Many homeowners struggle with keeping mosquitoes away and often suffer itchy and aggravating bites. Many wonder about the best way to repel mosquitoes. Portage homeowners will find the Mosquito Shield service to be the most effective defense against mosquitoes. We’re confident that, after just one treatment, you will notice a significant difference and recognize the value of our proven effective system.
Mosquito Shield offers a better way to repel mosquitoes. Portage homeowners won’t need to worry about cumbersome netting, ineffective candles, or bothersome bug repellants and topical sprays that can leave skin feeling greasy. Mosquitoes can also potentially spread infectious diseases like West Nile Virus and malaria, which pose a significant threat to young children, the elderly, and people living with weakened immune systems. When it comes to effective methods to repel mosquitoes, Portage homeowners can trust Mosquito Shield.
How Does Mosquito Shield Repel Mosquitoes in Portage?
Commercial insect repellants, bug sprays, and citronella candles can only do so much. These methods often require constant reapplication and can only work in small areas. The Mosquito Shield service offers more robust protection at an incredible value; our prices are about half of what our competitors charge, but they cannot match the efficacy of our three-step method to repel mosquitoes. Portage homeowners should know what to expect when they sign up for the Mosquito Shield service.
After signing up, a vector-trained Mosquito Shield technician can be at your property within just a few business days. Your technician will conduct an inspection of the property and identify the best way to treat it. We begin with a CO2 masking procedure that makes it difficult for female mosquitoes to locate humans and pets to bite. Female mosquitoes require blood to propagate, and they detect bite-worthy victims by the CO2 they exhale. This mask is just the first line of defense.
The next step involves spraying our special blend to kill the mosquitoes living around your home and form a barrier that prevents other mosquitoes from entering. Our spray includes FlexBlend technology that ensures the spray adheres to all of the organic surfaces around your home. We also add Rain Shield to ensure the spray can withstand light to moderate rain; the wet weather won’t wash away your mosquito barrier.
The third and final step is to strengthen your barrier over time with repeated applications. Our team constantly tracks the weather and mosquito populations around all of our service areas to determine the best times to reapply our spray. With every application, the barrier around your property grows stronger and more effective.

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.

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.
