The high-pitched buzzing of a mosquito flying past your ear is one of the most annoying things of summer, along with constant smacking yourself when see one on your skin. Worse are the itchy bites that come with these annoying little bugs. Yes, they’re annoying, but what’s worse is that mosquitoes are literally the most deadly animal in the world. Mosquitoes are carriers of so many different diseases it’s hard to count. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released a report stating that diseases from both mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled since 2004. In this report, the CDC also quite plainly states that about 80% of vector control organizations lack critical prevention and control capabilities.
So if the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its citizens from mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses, what can a private citizen do? Call Mosquito Squad. It’s our mission to protect you and your family from these bugs and the diseases they carry, while helping you take back your yard with our mosquito barrier treatment. It’s guaranteed to eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes and ticks in your yard for three weeks straight.
Our licensed technicians will first take a walk around your property and get rid of any standing water or other mosquito-breeding sites, treating them with larvicide to eliminate any existing larvae and preventing any eggs from hatching. This stops mosquito population’s life cycle in your yard. Then, we start distributing our EPA-registered, micro-encapsulated mosquito barrier treatment around the perimeter, working our way to the middle. We avoid any bee-friendly plants like flowers, but otherwise distribute our solution everywhere else. This includes other foliage, bushes, trees, woodpiles, decks and underneath them, etc.
Mosquito Squad’s formula knocks down mosquitoes on contact, and dries in 30 minutes. Once dry, it’s adhering to everything it was sprayed on, and creates an invisible “barrier” or “fence" against them. 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%. Our barrier treatment is both odorless and colorless, so you won’t even know it’s there . . . except you’ll know it’s working when you’re not swatting bugs away!
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 Moultonborough NH mosquito control service, so we’ll always call you a day in advance and remind you we’re coming. You don’t even need to be home, though — we’ll leave confirmation of treatment on your door.
As mentioned earlier, mosquito- and tick-borne diseases have more than tripled since 2004. You probably know how big a problem Lyme disease is here — you or someone you know has likely been affected by it. 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 serious illnesses, such as Ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, two diseases some might argue are worse than Lyme.
The best protection against these diseases is avoiding ticks all together. Mosquito Squad is also the most trusted name is your Moultonborough NH tick control. Our traditional barrier treatment solution that we use to eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes in your yard is equally effective for the tick population in your yard. In addition to our barrier treatment, we also implements tick tubes, which are small biodegradable tubes stuffed with permethrin-treated cotton. We place these strategically around your yard to entice mice, which are usually the source of the blood meal for ticks in their nymph stage. When mice bring this cotton back to their burrows, the permethrin rubs off on their fur. While it’s harmless to mice, when a tick tries to attack one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. With this extra step in our Moultonborough tick control, Mosquito Squad stops the life cycle of ticks, preventing them from coming anywhere near you or your family.
We firmly believe in and stand behind all of our products and services, but if you’re not completely satisfied, let us know. We’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked.

Nicer weather in New Hampshire means more outdoor special events like weddings, family reunions, and graduation parties. While you might 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 ruin the fun and even send guests home early if they’re bad enough.
You don’t want that to happen, so call Mosquito Squad for one of our special event treatments to make sure your bash is bug-free. We’ll visit the site of the event one to three days in advance and treat it with our barrier treatment 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.
All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that there are some people who prefer to avoid synthetics all together. That’s why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment which is based on essential oils.
Rather than an act as an eliminator, it’s a repellant that essentially “chases” the bugs off your property. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, but it’s pretty close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. Also time-released, our all-natural solution breaks down a little faster than our traditional barrier treatment because of its botanical makeup, so we recommend reapplying it every two weeks instead of three.
