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 Milford
Of all the pests you wish to keep out of your home and away from your property, ticks should rank among the top mentions. Ticks are parasitic arachnids that can be extremely difficult to spot, and they can make their way into your home and yard through various methods. Their small size is one of their most dangerous traits, because they can bite and transfer diseases to people and pests before they even realize a tick has bitten them.
Ticks are notorious for spreading Lyme disease, but this is just one of the serious illnesses they can spread. It’s also possible for ticks to spread anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Powassan virus disease, all of which can lead to long-term medical complications. Since it can be very difficult to notice ticks before they have the chance to bite, prevention is the best way to deal with them, and tick spraying in Milford will help to ensure that ticks do not want to linger on your property.
How Does Our Tick Spraying Process Work?
Tick Shield has developed a straightforward and effective method for killing ticks and keeping them at bay by using a specialized spray. Our tick spraying kills ticks already living around a property, disrupts their nests, and creates a barrier that discourages new ticks from trying to set up shop in the treated area. Our spray attaches to all the organic surfaces around your property, including the grass, shrubs, trees, and walkways.
Tick colonies can build very quickly, and it’s possible for a tick infestation to develop around your home before you even notice a problem. Additionally, ticks can attach to the skin and fur of various animals, such as dogs, cats, birds, raccoons, rabbits, and deer, and they make their way into residential areas by riding on these animals as they feed on them.
Tick spraying in Milford makes it difficult for ticks to thrive on a treated property. Instead of risking a tick infestation on your property, tick spraying can provide you with greater peace of mind when it comes to avoiding ticks and the diseases they carry.
A few simple tips and best practices can also help you protect yourself when you spend time outside away from home.
Tips for Keeping Ticks Away
Whether you plan to take a hiking trip in the Milford area or want to spend the weekend camping in the woods, you should know how to keep ticks away from you and your loved ones, including your pets. The go-to solution for getting rid of ticks for many Americans is bug repellant. Bug spray with DEET is the only type that offers any kind of efficacy for repelling ticks.
Your clothing choices can also help protect you from ticks. While it might be too hot outside, if it’s possible to wear long sleeves and long pants and remain comfortable, you should. Wearing light, loose-fitting long clothing minimizes the amount of skin you leave exposed for ticks to bite. Long sleeves make it harder for ticks to reach your skin and make it easier for you to spot them and remove them before they do. Be careful of your clothing color choices, too. Ticks will blend in easily against dark colors, and they will stand out easily against lighter colors.
Invest in Peace of Mind with Our Milford Tick Spraying
Despite your best efforts, it is always possible for you, one of your family members, or a pet to carry a tick into your property. This is why trusting the experts and choosing Tick Shield for tick spraying in Milford is your smartest move this summer.
