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 Northborough
While many types of pests can be unwanted intruders on your property, perhaps none are as notorious as the tick—and for good reason. These pesky arachnids are tiny, nearly impossible to spot until it’s too late, and spread Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, anaplasmosis, and more. Unfortunately, they’re also difficult for animals and humans alike to repel, even with conventional methods like tick collars and conventional sprays.
Waiting until you spot a tick on a loved one or pet means waiting to address your tick problem until after a tick population has had the chance to establish itself on your property. Tick infestations can be difficult to address through traditional methods. To prevent tick overpopulation and the spread of disease, it’s essential to invest in effective tick spraying. Northborough area residents recommend Tick Shield.
Why Spray for Ticks?
When it comes to tick infestations in your backyard and elsewhere on your property, it’s important to eradicate the source as soon as possible. Unfortunately, these pests are so tiny that many people don’t even realize they’ve suffered a tick bite. Although the most-recognized sign of a tick infestation is a burrowed tick or a lingering red bullseye, many ticks don’t leave a trace at all, leaving their hosts unaware until they experience symptoms of a tick-borne disease.
Even if you don’t think you have a current tick problem, ticks can enter your yard throughout the warmer months via several sources. For example, animals like household pets, wild rabbits, deer, birds, and rodents can all carry ticks onto your property from wooded areas and beyond. Since you aren’t likely to notice these new residents until you find one on a pet or a family member, it’s important to start tick spraying early on in the season. Northborough services like Tick Shield can help you prevent tick infestations before they occur and provide lasting protection to deal with any additional ticks carried onto your property.
How Does Our Tick Spraying in Northborough Work?
While many homeowners choose to select a DIY pesticide from the local home improvement or big box store, methods like this are largely ineffective. They usually don’t create seamless barrier and can sometimes harm your lawn and landscaping. Tick Shield has developed a tick spray that targets ticks, while leaving your lawn, garden, trees, and surrounding wildlife intact.
When you choose Tick Shield for tick spraying, Northborough technicians will apply our patented tick spray throughout your property, focusing on places ticks are likely to colonize. Our fast-acting spray begins killing ticks on contact and lingers on the organic surfaces of your property, continuing to decrease the number of ticks in all areas. Our product dries quickly, allowing you to return outdoors within about 10 minutes after the tick spraying process. Our Northborough tick control methods continue to create a long-lasting tick barrier to prevent additional ticks from infesting your property.
Post Tick Spraying Tips
Although Tick Shield’s proven methods can eradicate the ticks present on your property, it’s important to continue to utilize best practices for reducing your tick exposure while you’re out. When you’re away from home, especially in heavily wooded areas, be sure to wear long sleeves and pants (weather permitting) to prevent tick bites and wear light-colored clothing, so ticks will be easy to spot. In addition, consider using a DEET spray to repel ticks.
While it’s crucial to prevent tick bites when you’re active, continuous use of DEET sprays and heavy clothing just aren’t feasible in your own backyard. For that reason, it’s essential to find tick spraying that will work all season long on your Northborough property. Tick Shield stands ready to eradicate all the ticks on your property and keep them away.
