What services do we offer?

All of our visits begin with a consultation about the sources of your mosquito “invasion.” We’ll do our best to educate you on industry practices to avoid the creation of mosquito breeding areas as well as the natural steps you can take to keep the population to a minimum.

Barrier Spray: We will apply our pyrethroid based barrier spray to your yard. The treatment is guaranteed for 21 days. No mosquitoes! No ticks! We offer organic sprays as well – same guarantee! All of our products are applied by technicians that are trained, licensed, and insured. We will work around your schedule to ensure minimal disruption!

Special Event Protection: Don’t risk the weeks or months of planning it takes to organize an event! Keep your guests comfortable and focused on the reason for being together! We offer sensible rates for one time treatments on that special day. Use The Mosquito Team for outdoor weddings, receptions, family reunions, birthday parties, company parties, backyard barbeques, etc. Simply call us a few days ahead of time and we’ll do the rest!

What's your guarantee?

If you are not 100% satisfied with our service, we'll re-spray your yard at no cost within 21 days of the original treatment. If you are still not happy, we will FULLY refund the original cost of the service. While we only guarantee mosquito and tick control, you WILL see a major reduction in other outdoor pests such as moths, ants, spiders, cockroaches, wasps, "No-See-Ums", fleas beetles, flies, hornets, and mites!!!

What's in your spray?

Our most common spray is the “man-made” version of the natural insecticides produced by chrysanthemums. These synthetic compounds are called pyrethroids. The organic compounds (those derived directly from the chrysanthemums) are called pyrethrins. We offer both!

All of our products have been fully evaluated and approved by the EPA for application by trained, licensed, insured technicians. You can find more information on the EPA's website .

Do I need to be there?

You do not have to be present for our treatment. We will schedule a time to visit your home at your convenience and can work around your schedule. Any outdoor pets will have to be taken out of the yard during (and for about 30 minutes after) the treatment.

How long does it last?

Our treatment is guaranteed to last for 21 days!
