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.
Tick Spraying in Bellingham, MA
If you are trying to eliminate pests in and around your home, ticks should rank among your biggest concerns. These tiny parasitic arachnids can be dangerous to people and pets, as they are very difficult to see and capable of spreading very serious illnesses like Lyme disease, Powassan virus disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Keeping these awful creatures away from you and your loved ones is important, and tick spraying in Bellingham from Tick Shield can help.
Why Choose Tick Shield for Tick Spraying in Bellingham?
Ticks are incredibly difficult to remove from your property without the right tools. They are very small and can build undetected colonies in a short time. Your pets that spend time outdoors may unknowingly track them into your home, and you may also pick them up when you spend time outside away from home, such as at a hiking trail or campground. Ultimately, you should not want to take a reactive approach to a tick problem on your property, and instead should look for a preventive solution you can trust.
Tick Shield offers a unique solution to a tick infestation that no other service can match. Unlike the typical pest control products you might find in a store, our system creates a long-lasting barrier that not only kills ticks quickly but also prevents more from returning in the future. Ticks are very hardy creatures, so choosing a specialized solution designed exclusively to destroy and repel ticks is the best option.
Keeping Ticks Off Your Property with Tick Shield
If you already know of a tick infestation anywhere on your property, destroying it as soon as possible should be your top concern when it comes to pest control. However, ticks are very small, making it easy for them to get into your property through various means, but the most common is by hitching rides on other animals.
Domestic animals like cats and dogs might pick up ticks from tall grass or from playing around trees, and these animals can drop the ticks off in your lawn, where they will seek out places to build new colonies. Wildlife such as deer, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, and birds may also carry ticks to your property.
When you choose Tick Shield for tick spraying in Bellingham, your vector-trained Tick Shield technician will inspect your property for signs of tick colonization and then treat the entire property with our tick spray. We designed this spray exclusively for ticks and to ensure it holds well on organic surfaces. Once the ticks already living on your property are gone, the spray barrier will make sure that no new ticks will want to drop into your yard.
Tips for Preventing Tick Bites
Tick Shield can provide you with season-long protection from ticks around your home, but many Bellingham area residents enjoy spending time outside away from their homes. If you visit local parks, hiking trails, or campgrounds throughout the year, it’s a good idea to follow a few best practices to keep ticks away from you:
- Use high-quality bug repellant with DEET. Ticks resist most types of bug spray, but they do not like DEET. While you might not enjoy the smell of this substance, it can help you avoid ticks when you spend time outdoors.
- Wear light colors. Ticks have dark bodies, so they can easily blend in against darker clothing and find their way to your skin to bite you. Choose lighter colors when you spend time outside so you can quickly and easily locate and remove ticks that land on you.
- Minimize exposed skin. In the warmer weather, it’s a good idea to wear long-sleeved and loose-fitting clothes that minimize the amount of skin you leave exposed. This increases the time it would take for a tick to move across your clothing and reach your skin, potentially saving you from experiencing a bite.
Hopefully, these tips will keep you safer from ticks when you spend time outside away from home, and Tick Shield can provide long-lasting and reliable protection from ticks on your property.
