Summertime and the living is easy . . . for the most part. But when you can’t even enjoy your own yard because the mosquitoes are so bad . . . the living isn’t so easy after all. Not to mention, whenever you’re exposed to mosquitoes, there’s a potential for contracting a dangerous mosquito-borne disease like West Nile virus, or something worse like the rare, but potentially fatal Eastern Equine encephalitis. In May 2018, the Centers for Disease Control reported that between 2004 and 2016, diseases caused by mosquitoes and other bugs more than tripled, and there’s no indication that rate is slowing down. What’s worse than that, however is that the CDC plainly states that about 80% of government vector control organizations lack critical prevention and control capabilities.
Nobody likes getting bitten by mosquitoes, but knowing that the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its people from mosquito- and tick-borne diseases is an unsettling thought. You, as a homeowner, do have some power to protect yourself and your family with your own private Somersworth NH mosquito control on your own property, however. Call Mosquito Squad of New Hampshire Lakes Region. Our barrier treatment is guaranteed to reduce the mosquito and tick population in your yard by nearly 90% for up to 21 straight days.
The first thing our certified technicians do when they arrive at your house is take a walk around your property, treating and eliminating any mosquito breeding sites like standing water with larvicide, which eliminates any existing mosquito larvae and eggs, which halts the life cycle in your yard. Then, we get down to business applying our EPA-registered barrier treatment spray, starting at the outside of your property and working our way inward.
Unlike other mosquito control companies, we don’t just “spot treat” areas of your yard — we get it all. That means we sure to apply our formula to trees, bushes, woodpiles, foliage (including the undersides of leaves), and all other surfaces, even your favorite garden gnome. The only things we avoid are flowers and other things that bees like to pollinate. Our Somersworth NH mosquito control spray only takes about 30 minutes to dry, after which time it’s OK to return to your yard. When dry, it’s now adhering to everything it was applied to. As a micro encapsulated solution, any new mosquitoes or other biting bugs that land on our formula will be eliminated upon contact for nearly three weeks after initial application.
For uninterrupted summers, we highly recommend and offer seasonal plans. We’ll always call and remind you a day in advance of a treatment, but you don’t even need to be home. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door.
Here in New Hampshire, you’re likely well aware of Lyme disease. You’ve either had it, or know someone who has. It’s pretty serious — this man from Portsmouth got Lyme disease and said it was worse than the 22 broken bones he once had! 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, other tick-borne illnesses are on the rise here, including Powassan virus, which can cause permanent neurological damage.
The best protection against any tick-borne disease is avoiding ticks all together. Mosquito Squad’s Somersworth NH tick control is the best you’ll find — not only is our barrier treatment 90% effective on mosquitoes, but it’s equally effective on ticks. Plus, we implement tick tubes to go “straight to the source” of where younger ticks get their blood meal — mice. These biodegradable tubes are stuffed with a cotton that is treated with permethrin, a chemical that is harmless to the animal but deadly to ticks. Mice love to bring this cotton to cozy up their nests, and the permethrin rubs off on their fur. When a tick tries to feed off one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. This extra step that we use is highly effective at stopping the tick life cycle in your yard, so that no matter what life stage they’re in, they won’t be coming near you or your family.
Want the ultimate in your Somersworth NH mosquito and tick control? Consider one of our automatic misting systems. We highly recommend these if you have waterfront property, live near a wooded area, or have horses in a barn. Mosquito Squad strategically places misters around your property that release our mosquito control solution at programmed intervals for about 30 seconds at a time, or at your command with the push of a button on the remote control. This tactic is over 90% effective at eliminating mosquitoes and ticks and gives you extra peace of mind. Best part of all, we take care of all installation, refills, maintenance, summer setup and winterization. The only finger you’ll need to lift is the one that pushes the button on the remote!
We are so confident in the quality and effectiveness of our products and services that if you’re not happy for any reason, just let us know. We’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked.
Keep your family safe from mosquitoes, ticks, and the dangerous diseases they carry, and start enjoying your summers at home again. The government isn’t prepared to do it, but you definitely can. For the most effective Somersworth NH mosquito control and Somersworth NH tick control, call Mosquito Squad of New Hampshire Lakes region at 603-380-4541. A consultation is always free.

Are you planning an outdoor wedding this year? Perhaps a family reunion? Make sure your guests aren’t on the mosquito menu with one of our special event services. We’ll come out to the site of the occasion one to three days in advance and spray the entire area down with our barrier spray.
It only takes us about 20 minutes to administer the treatment, and 30 minutes to dry, so it’s easy to schedule around caterers, tent setup, and other event preparation. We’ll be there and gone before you know it, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your guests won’t be swatting and smacking themselves during your event, let alone leaving early.
Not a problem. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that some people still prefer to stay away from synthetics all together and go as “green" as possible. That’s why we also developed an all-natural, botanical barrier treatment solution with essential oils at its base. Our all-natural barrier treatment is more of a repellant than an eliminator, meaning that it “chases” the bugs away.
Because of the natural makeup of its formula, it’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, but it’s pretty close — most customers report a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. It’s also time-released, but because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly more quickly than our traditional solution, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
