      Brad and Kristi Sutliffe

      Owner

      Owners Brad and Kristi Sutliffe moved to Lewes, Delaware in 2017 after living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Having visited Lewes many times on family vacations they fell in love with the charm and relaxed feeling of living in a small close-knit beach town. They often joke that they should have made the move sooner and wonder how they ever lived away from the beach.

      Brad grew up in New England, ultimately moving to the Eastern Shore when he was in High School and where he would meet Kristi. He has been in the insurance industry for close to 20 years. Brad is constantly looking at ways to challenge himself and grow. Kristi grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with a background in marketing and feels fortunate to have been able to stay at home with their three children, Nate, Emme, and William for the past several years.

      Brad and Kristi are total foodies, and the Southern Delaware community is not lacking in amazing locally-owned restaurants. To name a few, Heirloom, Agave, Blue Hen, Patty’s, Stingray, you can’t go wrong with one of the eighteen Sodel restaurants. They also love visiting Cape Henlopen State Park, which is their happy place! From drive-on surf fishing, walking their favorite trail on Gordon’s Pond, fishing on the fishing pier and frisbee golf there truly is something there for everyone. The best part, they continue to unearth new places at the State Park.

      During the summer months, you will find their family boating on the waterways of the Delaware Bay and Indian River. One of the most exciting things they’ve joined as a family has been Freedom Boat Club. During the early spring of 2020 before the pandemic hit they joined and haven’t looked back. They were able to use this outlet during the pandemic to feel a sense of normalcy.

      Brad’s experience in the insurance world translates very well to Mosquito Shield. He understands the importance of delivering strong customer service in building a book of business. At the end of the day, in small communities, your service is what stands out. When asked what attracted Brad and Kristi to Mosquito Shield, they replied, “The initial appeal for our family is being able to help others take back their outdoor spaces. The countless times we’ve gone to a playground or dined outside and said, the mosquitos are eating us alive, no matter how much bug spray. Mosquito Shield of Southern Delaware will have an April through October operating window which is extremely appealing as we are looking long term. The team that makes up Mosquito Shield is incredible, the question for us quickly became, why wouldn’t we want to work with these people?”

      Ultimately, the message that they have for their customers is: “All we do is mosquitos and ticks – this is our sole focus. Mosquito Shield is proven, effective, and affordable. We are the leader in Mosquito Control. On average, we spray every 10-17 days, a proven and effective approach that has us spraying 4-6 more times than the industry average. With a 90% retention rate, we are so confident in our results that we offer our customers a money-back guarantee if they are not satisfied. Our goal is to provide the best mosquito control with the highest levels of customer service, allowing our customers to enjoy their homes and time with family to the fullest.”

      What other insects will this effect?

      What other insects will this affect?

      Arrow

      We use an insecticide so other insects present when and where we spray may be impacted.

      However, our formula was specifically engineered for mosquitoes so it won’t repel any other insects as it does mosquitoes.

      Is there any environment you cannot treat?

      Arrow
      Yes, there are some areas we won’t spray to protect the surrounding environments. Pools, natural water sources, vegetable gardens, and artificial water sources complete the list.

      Because water could easily spread the insecticides, we never directly apply our product to it. However, the rest of the property can still be sprayed and it will drastically reduce the population of mosquitoes.

      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?

      Why do we see more mosquitoes after it has rained?

      Arrow
      Mosquitoes are more abundant after it rains because standing water is where they breed.

      Adult, female mosquitoes will lay their eggs in water. Once fully submerged, the countdown begins and the eggs can hatch in as little as a few days.

      Without rain, puddles and water decrease, leaving less room for mosquitoes to breed.
