Welcome to Mosquito Shield

Thank you for signing up for Mosquito and/or Tick Shield services for the 2018 season!  We’d like to share a few essential pieces of information regarding these services:

Scheduling:  Mosquito service starts in early May and continues through mid-October, every 10-17 days, taking into account the weather and the mosquito population.  For customers with a Tick Shield program, tick service typically starts in mid-April and treatments then continue every 45 to 60 days throughout the season.

Communications:  For each visit, you will receive a notification email the day before we’re planning to treat and another email as soon as the technician finishes on your property.  Periodically, emails and/or printed material will be used to educate, inform, and provide special offers throughout the season.  Once during the season, a survey will be sent as well asking for your feedback.  Customer satisfaction is a top priority to us!

Results:  Results are what we are looking to deliver for you and your family!  Significantly reducing the existing mosquito population so you can enjoy your yard is our main goal and the reason for our frequent visits.  Once you’re a few applications into the season, should you experience ‘break through’ between visits, let us know!  There are several adjustments that can be made by our technicians to get your property under control.

Savings:  For your convenience and to help keep our costs and your prices down, all seasonal service plans renew annually.  At the end of this season, you will start to receive our early-bird discount offers.  If you don’t take advantage of any, you will be automatically renewed by early Spring at a special returning customer rate and our EZ3 payment plan.   You’ll always have the ability to opt-out, but we’ll keep your service coming until you tell us otherwise!
