Few things can ruin a nice, warm summer evening in your backyard like mosquitoes. You’ve got tiki torches, citronella candles, even those electric bug zappers, but they still just won’t go away. You likely know by now that those methods don’t actually work well enough to notice, yet you keep using them anyway. And bug spray . . . while sometimes effective, do you really want to smell like that? You think, there’s got to be a better way to deal with these little buggers.
There is! Just call Mosquito Squad — we’re the most trusted name in mosquito and tick control. Not only is our barrier spray treatment guaranteed to eliminate over 90% of mosquitoes in your yard, but we promise it’ll keep working for three straight weeks.
But we don’t just eliminate mosquitoes because they’re annoying (although that’s a big part of it). We do it because they’re dangerous. Dangerous enough to be considered literally the most deadly animal in the world because of their ability to carry a plethora of diseases. In May 2018, the Centers for Disease Control released an alarming report stating that diseases spread by mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas more than tripled between 2004 and 2016, and there’s no indication that rate is going to drop any time in the near future.
You’re probably wondering, “Wait, three weeks at a time? How does that work?” Our process is simple, our formula is micro encapsulated, and the results are fantastic. The first thing our technicians do is walk around your property and get rid of any standing water or other mosquito-breeding sites, while treating them with larvicide to eliminate any existing larvae and preventing any eggs from hatching. After that, we start distributing our EPA-registered barrier spray treatment around the perimeter of your yard, then work our way to the middle. We are careful to avoid any plants that bees pollinate like flowers, but otherwise distribute our specially-developed formula everywhere else. This includes foliage and the undersides of leaves, bushes, trees, woodpiles, decks and underneath them, lawn ornaments — you name it.
Our barrier treatment is both odorless and colorless, and dries in about 30 minutes, at which time you can safely return to your yard. It knocks down mosquitoes on contact, and once dry, adheres to everything it was sprayed on. The micro encapsulation is what allows it to keep working for 21 days after application. Any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that come into contact with it are also eliminated, resulting in a reduction of the bug population in your yard by nearly 90%.
For continuous protection, we offer seasonal plans so that you’ll have worry-free, uninterrupted summers at home outside. We know it’s easy to forget when we’re coming, so we’ll always call a day in advance and remind you, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door when we leave.
As mentioned earlier, mosquito- and tick-borne diseases have more than tripled since 2004. You know how serious of a problem Lyme disease is here — you or someone you know has likely been affected by it. In fact, according to the CDC report, New Hampshire is in the top 20% of states with the most tick-borne diseases with 13,710 reported cases between 2004 and 2016. Aside from Lyme disease, ticks also transmit some other scary illnesses, such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Ehrlichiosis, two diseases which some might argue are worse than Lyme.
Mosquito Squad is also the most trusted name in your Dover NH tick control. While we can’t stop a tick from hitching a ride on you while you’re out in the woods, we can guarantee the chances of that happening in your own yard will be greatly diminished with our tick control services. Like our Dover mosquito control, you’ll have a reduction of the tick population in your yard by up to 90%.
How does it work? We take the same approach as our traditional mosquito barrier treatment, but with an extra, important step — tick tubes. These are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a permethrin-treated cotton that we strategically place around your yard to entice mice. Ticks in their nymph stage get their blood meal more often than not from mice, and that’s also how ticks most frequently travel around your yard. When a mouse takes the cotton back to its burrow, the permethrin rubs off on their fur, and when a tick tries to attack that mouse, it’s eliminated shortly afterward. It is with this proactive tactic that Mosquito Squad is able to stop the lifecycle of the tick population in your yard before they ever come anywhere near you and your family.
We mean it when we say “up to 90% reduction in mosquitoes and ticks for three weeks straight.” If you’re not satisfied for any reason, just let us know and we’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked.

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment option for those individuals who prefer to stay as “green” as possible. Using a formula comprised mainly of essential oils, this barrier spray solution focuses more on repelling pests than eliminating them.
While not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control treatment, it still does an incredible job — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Our all-natural formula is also time released, but because of its botanical makeup, we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
If you’re planning a party this summer, the last thing you want at your event is people leaving early because the bugs are so bad. That’s why we offer our special events service — we’ll come out to the site of the event (it doesn’t have to be your home), and treat the entire area with our signature barrier spray treatment.
Whether you’re having a wedding, family reunion, graduation party, or other event, you’ll rest easy knowing that your guests won’t be on the mosquito menu. Depending on the size of the site, it generally takes us around 20 minutes to administer the entire treatment. And because it only takes about 30 minutes to dry, it’s easy to fit us into the schedule while you do other party prep. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and the bugs won’t crash your bash!
Want even more control over your unwelcome mosquito tenants? With Mosquito Squad’s automatic misting systems you can treat your yard at any time with the press of a button. Our strategically placed misters release our barrier treatment at programmed intervals for 30 seconds at a time, OR at your command with the included remote control and app.
Installation is easy for our technicians, and we do our best to make the misters as unnoticeable on your property as possible. The best part is that all service, including refills, maintenance, repairs, summer setup and winterization is handled by Mosquito Squad, so you don’t need to worry about a thing.
