Summer in the New Hampshire can shape some of the best memories of our lives, but with the long summer nights come the buzzing, the swatting, and the itching from mosquitoes. A bombardment from mosquitoes on an otherwise nice evening can ruin a night, not to mention an entire summer. That they’re annoying is one thing, but it’s another thing to consider the dangers of these little bloodsuckers. The CDC recently released a report stating that diseases spread by bugs more than tripled between 2004 and 2016, which is enough to make a person want to stay inside.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! Mosquito Squad can help you take back your yard and take back your summer with our traditional barrier treatment, which eliminates up to 90% of mosquitoes and ticks in your yard for three weeks straight. You’ll have your summer back and you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors at your own place without having to worry about the buzzing, the biting, the itching, or the worries of getting sick. Our Laconia NH mosquito control is guaranteed to work or we’ll either re-treat your property of offer your money back.
When our technicians first arrive at your property, the first thing we do is walk around and eliminate any standing water pools or other mosquito-breeding sites and treat those areas with larvicide, which eliminates eggs and future mosquitoes in their larva state. Then, we start treating the perimeter of your yard with our EPA-registered, micro-encapsulated formula, making sure to cover all surfaces possible. We’re careful to avoid flowers and other bee-friendly plants, but aside from those, we get all foliage, trees, the undersides of leaves, woodpiles, patios, on top of and below decks, you name it. It takes about 30 minutes to dry, after that you’re free to return to your yard. While we’re applying the barrier treatment, it knocks down adult mosquitoes on contact, but after it’s dry, our odorless and colorless solution is now adhering to everything it was applied to. Any new mosquitoes that come into contact with it for the next three weeks will also be eliminated, and any eggs have no chance of even hatching, thus stopping the life cycle.
For protection all summer long, we offer seasonal plans, so you won’t need to worry about rescheduling another treatment with us. Of course, when you’re enjoying the summer it’s easy to forget about your Laconia NH mosquito control service, so we’ll always call you a day in advance and remind you we’re coming.
As we mentioned, mosquito- and tick-borne diseases have more than tripled since 2004. We don’t need to tell you how serious of a problem Lyme disease is here — chances are you or someone you know has been affected with it. In fact, according to the CDC report, New Hampshire is in the top 20% of states with the most tick-borne diseases (13,710) 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. The bottom line is this: Ticks are everywhere, and they can cause a lot of damage to a person or their loved ones if the wrong one takes a bite.
But Mosquito Squad is also the most trusted name in your Laconia NH tick control. While nobody is ever really “safe” from the potential damage of a tick bite, we can guarantee a reduction of the tick population in your yard by up to 90%, therefore giving you some peace of mind that you won’t have tick problems on your own property that you would while out on a hike. Chances are, you spend much more time in your own yard in the summertime than you do out in the woods, so hanging out at home will be much more comfortable without the worries of ticks!
How does our Laconia tick control work? Our method is the same as our traditional barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes, but with an extra, important step — tick tubes. Tick tubes are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a permethrin-treated cotton that we strategically place around your yard to entice mice. Mice are the usually the main meal for ticks in their nymph stage, and how ticks most frequently travel around your yard. When a mouse takes the cotton back to its nest to get it cozy, 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.
As with our mosquito barrier treatment, our Laconia NH tick control is guaranteed to be up to 90% (or more) effective in eliminating ticks on your property for three weeks at a time.

Nicer weather means more outdoor special events like weddings, family reunions, and graduation parties. While you may think you’ve got all the party-planning pieces in place, don’t forget one major detail — making sure that your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu. Mosquitoes crashing a party can seriously ruin the fun and even send guests home early if they’re bad enough. But call Mosquito Squad for one of our special event treatments to ensure a bug-free bash.
We’ll come out to the site of the event one to three days in advance and treat it with our traditional barrier spray, so if you end up with any “uninvited guests,” they won’t be bugs! We only take about 20 minutes to apply the treatment, and it only takes about 30 minutes to dry, meaning that we’re easy to schedule around other party prep like tent setup and caterers.
No problem! All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who insist on going as all-natural as possible. That’s why we also offer an all-natural, botanical barrier treatment that we specially developed with essential oils. It’s got a pleasant fragrance to humans that wears off after a couple hours, but to an insect’s nose, it’s repulsive and chases them away.
Our all-natural solution is more of a repellant than an eliminator most customers still notice a significant reduction in yard pests, as much as 75-80%. Our all-natural formula is still time released, but because of its botanical makeup breaks down a bit more quickly, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of the three that our traditional barrier treatment would need.
