Prior to 2005, the idea of private mosquito control in one’s own yard seemed like a far-fetched idea. But then Mosquito Squad came along and introduced our traditional barrier spray treatment to homeowners, which was such a popular idea that soon many similar companies started popping up. As the original company providing expert residential mosquito control, Mosquito Squad has pioneered and consistently advanced our products and services to not only help homeowners eliminate mosquitoes from their yards, but stay ahead of the very industry we created. Our top priority continues to be to provide top-notch mosquito control in Southport NC to you, your family (two legs and four) and guests so that you can enjoy spending time in your yard.
Why? Well, mosquitoes aren’t just annoying, they’re dangerous. So dangerous, in fact, that they’re officially the most deadly animal in the world because of their ability to carry very serious diseases. The most commonly known mosquito-vectored disease is the West Nile virus , of which there were five cases in North Carolina last year, including two deaths. Believe it or not, West Nile virus is on the milder side of mosquito-borne illnesses one can contract. Aside from the “usual” mosquito-related diseases, there are much worse arboviruses we need to worry about.
Mosquito Squad’s traditional barrier spray treatment is your best bet for keeping your family safe from mosquito-born illnesses while at the same time, not having to worry about the annoying buzzing and swatting that come with these little bugs. We’re here to protect you.
Many homeowners think that because Southport NC mosquito control falls under Town of Oak Island’s mosquito fogging program they’re in the clear. But the truth is, municipal programs such as that are primarily focused on mosquito elimination in public areas like storm drains, marshes, parks, and other open areas like rivers and streams. Their methods of mosquito control are rarely effective in private properties like your yard, and the formula they use only eliminates existing adult mosquitoes on contact. Which leaves a lot of room and opportunity for mosquito eggs to hatch, and other mosquitos to move in from other areas.
Mosquito Squad’s barrier spray treatmentdifferent. Yes, it also eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact, but it also keeps working for three weeks after application with up to 90% effectiveness.
The first thing we do is take a walk around your property and treat any standing water pools or other potential mosquito breeding areas with larvicide to eliminate any existing larvae and prevent future mosquitoes. Then we treat the perimeter of your yard, working our way inward, with our barrier treatment. We’re very careful to avoid flowers and other bee-friendly plants, but otherwise distribute our odorless, colorless formula on everything else, including foliage, trees, bushes, leaves, woodpiles, and even decks (including underneath them), porches, patios, lawn ornaments, etc.
Mosquito Squad’s EPA-registered formula only takes about 30 minutes to dry, which means after that your yard is free to enjoy again. Here’s where the “magic” happens — after the treatment dries, it’s now adhering to everything it was sprayed upon. Any new mosquitoes that come into contact with it will be eliminated for up to three weeks, at which time the treatment will need to be reapplied. This method of mosquito control for Southport NC is guaranteed to reduce the mosquito population in your yard by up to 90%. Because we know it’s easy to slip people’s minds to reschedule another treatment, we offer seasonal treatment plans so you can enjoy summers in your yard without needing to worry about the buzzing, the biting, and the potentially harmful illnesses that mosquitoes can transmit to your family and friends.
When many people hear the word “tick,” they automatically think of Lyme disease, and with good reason — 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 famous.” There are other, much more serious tick-borne illnesses, including the rare, but fatal Powassan virus, which has gotten local coverage recently. While uncommon, it’s rising and everybody needs to be more aware of it. Nobody wants to see themselves or any of their loved ones deal with a tick-borne disease, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, almost nobody. Consider Mosquito Squad your Southport NC tick control specialists.
As it turns out, the same barrier spray treatment that we use for mosquito control also eliminates adult ticks and fleas. Our tick control treatment is extremely effective and can eliminate up to 95% of adult ticks on contact, but we take it a step further and have a two step approach to our Southport NC tick control. We make sure they’re eliminated at the source before they come anywhere near you or your family.
The first thing Mosquito Squad does is 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 the tall grassy areas of your property (if there are any), because that’s where ticks like to hang out and rest, breed, and wait for their dinner . . . it’s our job to make sure it’s not you.
Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for up to 21 days once the treatment is dispersed — just like for mosquitoes. Our barrier treatment has the added benefit of preventing the eggs of ticks from hatching and thus puts a stop to the next generation of these pests. We suggest treating your property every 3 weeks for season-long protection, and offer seasonal packages to make sure you’re covered all season long.
But then we take it a step further.
Obviously, not all ticks are carriers of scary pathogens, but it’s best to be on the safe side. Ticks become infected when they feed on small animals (usually mice) that are infected. By going straight to the source and implementing tick tubes, we’re able to eliminate ticks before they even come near people or pets.
Tick tubes are small biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a treated cotton that mice love to bring back to their burrows. When ticks decide to attack one of those mice, they’re eliminated shortly afterward. Mosquito Squad is very strategic on where we place these tick tubes to ensure maximum mice-enticement and efficiency. By taking this extra, proactive step in your tick control for Southport NC, Mosquito Squad is able to ensure a reduction in your yard’s tick population by up to 90%, before they’re able to mulitply.
As the most trusted name is mosquito and tick control, we’re serious about protecting you and your loved ones from biting bugs and the potentially serious diseases they carry. We firmly stand behind our products and services, but if there’s any reason you’re not happy, please let us know. We’ll either give your property an additional treatment or offer your money back.

Ever been to an outdoor party such as a wedding or family reunion, and the mosquitoes were so bad that you couldn’t even enjoy it? You may have even left early.

We’re easy to work with as far as scheduling goes, and will come out to the site of the event a one to three days in advance and treat the area with our traditional barrier spray.

If you have a horse farm, live near a wooded or marshy area, have waterfront property, or simply want more Burlington MA mosquito control, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems. These systems are relatively easy for our technicians to install, and the misters are strategically placed around your property to blend in and be as unnoticeable as possible.
At specified intervals, the system releases a mist of our micro encapsulated formula for about 30 seconds. Or, at your command with the included remote control app. You can even trigger the system to go off when you’re not at home. This heavy-duty mosquito control method is over 90% effective and Mosquito Squad takes care of all the refills, summer setup, winterization, and any maintenance needed in between it may need. The only finger you need to lift is the one to trigger the system if you want to.
All of our products are EPA-registered, but we get that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green.” That’s why we offer an all-natural barrier spray treatment that we developed with essential oils. It’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, but most homeowners notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80% with this formula. It’s also time-released, but we recommend reapplying it every two weeks instead of three.
