A common question people have when it comes to controlling their mosquito problem is why would they bother calling Mosquito Squad, a mosquito control specialist, when they can just call an exterminator, such as Orkin or Terminix? Shouldn’t traditional exterminators be able to handle mosquitoes and ticks, too? Bugs are bugs, right?
Before 2005, there was no such thing as private outdoor mosquito control for one’s home. The “big name” exterminator companies didn’t even offer it as a service. When Mosquito Squad created the barrier treatment formula, we created the industry by offering a service that the other companies didn’t realize was needed. Many copycat mosquito control companies followed, but we remain the leaders and the specialists in home mosquito control.
Realizing how successful the private mosquito and tick control business was, Terminix and Orkin decided to get in on the game and add those bugs as thing they eliminated as well. But the problem is, their programs are not designed to control mosquitoes and ticks consistently through the season without reduction in effectiveness. To be a “mosquito exterminator,” you need to use mosquito-specific chemicals such as ours do, which have a micro encapsulated formula that releases its active ingredients gradually, eliminating mosquitoes for weeks on end.
Between the two “big names” in extermination, one of them claims that they’d “choose one of two methods” to control mosquitoes on your property — either a larvicide or adulticide, and they’ll check back in a month to see if you’re satisfied.
At Mosquito Squad, we ask, “Why choose and either/or approach?” We use both for our mosquito control, plus our formula is guaranteed to be nearly 90% effective for up three weeks at a time. (After that, we recommend another treatment.) There is no way that their either/or mosquito treatment can be effective for an entire month, period. Regarding any kind of guarantee, this company’s website actually says, “If we can’t solve your mosquito problem, we’ll refund a portion of your service charge as long as you’re a customer.”
Know that with Mosquito Squad, if you’re not 100% satisfied with our products and services, we’ll either re-treat your yard of offer a 100% refund.
As far Terminix and Orkin’s tick control goes, once again, it’s an add-on service and an afterthought to their wide range of pest control services. Neither of them are actually specific on how they treat for ticks on your property, though. One of them says many of their services are “based on science,” yet they don’t give any specifics and only give general, generic language. Nowhere do they talk about actual methods of treatment, effectiveness, or get into details about the “science.” Mosquito Squad believes in complete transparency, which is why we’re open about what we use for our mosquito and tick control, because we have nothing to hide.
We don’t want to knock the “big” home pest control companies, the traditional exterminators. They’re great at what they do — the indoor stuff. If you’ve got a problem with cockroaches or termites, give the Orkin Man a call. He’s great at those. But if you want a specific mosquito exterminator, call the pros at Mosquito Squad.
You could think of it this way — say you’ve got a medical condition where you need to go see a specialist, like if you needed brain surgery. You’re not going to go to your usual family doctor, a generalist, to take care of your problem. You’re going to go to a brain surgeon, because that’s what they specialize in.
So if you need help with indoor stuff like cockroaches, termites, even mice — give the traditional, general exterminators a call. But if you need help with ticks and mosquitoes, call the tick and mosquito exterminators at Mosquito Squad — that’s our speciality, it’s what we focus on, it’s what we do and do best. And we’re so confident in what we do that we guarantee 90% fewer ticks and mosquitoes for up to three weeks at a time or your money back. Give us a call at 603-380-4541 for the most effective mosquito control and tick control you can find in the New Hampshire Lakes Region or anywhere else. It’s not brain surgery!
