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.
Excellence in Bergen County Tick Spraying
Insects invading your property and being an annoyance is one thing. However, if these insects have a chance of carrying serious diseases that could be spread to humans and pets, that is another thing entirely. Ticks are some of the worst creatures to have roaming freely around your home due to the many different diseases they carry. Ticks can potentially spread anaplasmosis, Powassan virus disease, Lyme disease, Babesiosis, Tularemia, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and various other ailments. Some of these diseases can cause lifelong medical complications. For this reason, it is vital to know how to protect yourself from ticks, and this is why you should be seeking out tick spraying in Bergen County.
You shouldn’t be afraid to enjoy the outdoors on your own property, and Tick Shield’s tick spraying services can offer the peace of mind you need. While Tick Shield can offer lasting protection against ticks for your home, there are a few best practices that can help minimize your risk of tick exposure when you spend time away from home outdoors.
Best Practices to Help Prevent Exposure to Ticks
If you like to hike or take weekend camping trips, you probably rely on a few conventional methods to protect yourself from ticks. Most people know to wear bug repellent, but are you sure that the repellant you purchased is effective against ticks? These creatures are resistant to most forms of bug repellent, however DEET has proven effective at deterring ticks. If you are concerned about ticks, make sure you purchase a bug repellant fortified with DEET.
You can also limit your exposure to ticks by choosing the right clothing for spending time outside. It’s a good idea to wear long sleeves and long pants, even during warm weather (if reasonable). If you choose loose fitting clothing, you can stay comfortable while also limiting skin exposure. Wearing full coverage makes it much harder for ticks to find their way to your skin and bite you. If your hike takes you through thick brush, tucking your shirt into your pants and your pants into your shoes can provide additional protection.
Why You Should Trust Tick Shield
The previously mentioned best practices are good to keep in mind when you’re spending time outdoors away from home. However, you should do everything you can to ensure your property remains as tick-free as possible. Ticks can find their way to your yard in many ways, but one of their most common travelling methods is attaching to wildlife and dropping into the grass once they find a new location to colonize.
Dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, birds, racoons, and deer can all carry ticks to residential areas, and it can be extremely difficult to discern a tick problem before it grows out of control. Ticks are very small and hard to see, even when fully matured. At Mosquito Shield we offer preventative care for your property so you do not need to worry about dealing with a tick problem after it has already started.
Tick Shield’s spray kills ticks very quickly, disrupts their colonies, and adheres to the grass and other organic surfaces around your property. As it dries, the spray creates a protective “shield” that prevents new ticks from moving into your property. Ultimately, Tick Shield’s service is the best possible defense you can have against ticks on your Bergen County property.
