Bzzzzzzz! SMACK! Bzzzzzzz! SMACK! “Ugh, let’s go inside.” Sound familiar? That’s the sound of being chased out of your yard and back into the house by mosquitoes on a nice summer night. This has probably happened to you on more than one occasion. But what if we told you it doesn’t have to be that way? It doesn’t! Since we invented our mosquito control barrier spray treatment in 2005 (and thus creating the private outdoor pest control industry), Mosquito Squad has been helping families all over the country take their yards back from mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting bugs, allowing them to enjoy their summers outdoors again.
It isn’t just the annoying factor of the swatting and itching, either. It’s about protection. Mosquitoes are literally he most deadly animal in the world. They’re carrier of so many different diseases that it’s hard to count, the most common here in the United States being West Nile virus, but other, more dangerous conditions such as Eastern Equine encephalitis are increasing. In fact, the CDC released a report in May 2018 saying between 2004 and 2016, diseases transmitted by insects and ticks have more than tripled.
That’s pretty scary. But Mosquito Squad is here to help and protect you. Our traditional barrier spray is the most effective mosquito control in Tilton NH you’ll find, with up to 90% effectiveness that continues to work for three weeks after application. Woo!
Upon arriving to your house, our technicians walk around your property and eliminate potential mosquito breeding areas of standing water, while treating them with larvicide to ensure no existing larvae develop. Of course, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. After that, we start distributing our barrier spray around the perimeter of your yard, working our way inwards. We apply our EPA-registerd formula to bushes, woodpiles, trees, foliage (excluding flowers), and all other surfaces, including decks, patios, garden gnomes, etc. Our micro-encapsulated solution knocks down mosquitos on contact, and it dries in 30 minutes. Once it’s dry, it’s now adhering to everything it was sprayed on and will release its active ingredients gradually for nearly 3 weeks. So any new mosquito that comes into contact with it in that time will also be eliminated. This odorless, colorless “barrier” is guaranteed to reduce your yard’s mosquito and tick population by nearly 90%!
For uninterrupted summers, we offer seasonal plans so you don’t have to worry about rescheduling with us. We’ll always call 24 hours in advance to remind you that we’re coming, but you don’t even need to be home when we do our treatment — we’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door. Fewer worries about mosquitoes means means more carefree time outside with family, doing things like playing with the dog and having cookouts with your friends and family.
Hearing the word “tick,” most people automatically think of Lyme disease. That’s understandable, as it’s the most well-known tick-borne illness, and all over the Northeast. But ticks transmit more than just Lyme disease, that one’s just the most common around here. There are other, much more serious tick-borne diseases to worry about, too. Nobody wants to be the latest one with Lyme disease in Tilton NH, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, except us. Mosquito Squad is your Tilton NH tick control expert.
Our process for eliminating ticks is a two-step process, which goes above and beyond other companies.
First, we follow the same barrier spray process that we do for mosquitoes, applying our specially-developed formula to all areas of your yard (aside from flowers), including foliage, bushes, trees, under leaves, on and under porches and decks, woodpiles, etc. We give a lot more attention to any tall, grassy areas of your property, because that’s where ticks like to hang out and rest, breed, and wait for their next blood meal to walk by . . . it’s our job to make sure it’s not you.
Since our formula is time released, your property will be protected for up to 21 days once the treatment is applied — just like for mosquitoes. Our barrier treatment has the added benefit of preventing the eggs of ticks from hatching, thus stopping the next generation of these little bloodsuckers.
While not all ticks are carriers of nasty diseases, it’s best to be on the safe side. Ticks become infected when they feed on small animals (usually mice) that are infected. By implementing tick tubes, we’re gong straight to the source and are able to eliminate ticks before they even come near people or pets.
What are tick tubes? They’re small biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a permethrin-treated cotton that mice and other small animals love to bring back to their burrows. The permethrin rubs off on their fur while they’re in the nest, and when ticks decide to attack one of these animals, they’re eliminated shortly afterward. Mosquito Squad is very strategic on where we place tick tubes to make sure they’ll be found by the right animals quickly. By taking this extra, proactive step, we’re able to ensure a reduction in your yard’s tick population by up to 90%, before they’re able to multiply, which greatly reduces your risk for getting infected with Lyme disease in your Tilton NH yard.
If you live in an area that is a little more “woodsy” than most, have waterfront property, or perhaps you’ve got a barn — definitely ask about our automatic misting systems. These are custom designed and installed by our team on your property and emit a mist of our formula at pre-programmed intervals for about 45 seconds at a time. They also come with a remote control and app so that you can trigger the mist at your own discretion. Don’t worry – we try to make sure that the misters blend in with your property’s features as much as possible. How effective are they? How about over 90% effective? Misting systems are the heaviest-hitting Tilton NH mosquito and tick control you can find, and the best part about them is that Mosquito Squad takes care of all the refills and maintenance for you. It’s truly a “set it and forget it” solution!

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we understand that some people still prefer to go as “green" as possible and stay away from synthetics. That’s why we also developed an all-natural, botanical barrier treatment solution that’s based on essential oils.
It eliminates bugs on contact and then continues acting as a repellant, meaning that it “chases” the bugs away. Because of the botanical 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 faster than our traditional solution, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
