Our most popular treatment is our barrier protection treatment that effectively eliminates up to 90% of mosquitoes. It eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact and creates a barrier to reduce mosquito populations; this also works on ticks. Technicians strategically distribute our EPA-registered treatment throughout your backyard, which creates an odorless barrier that continues working for up to 21 days. This provides you and your family with a nearly completely bug-free environment, so you can enjoy all your outdoor activities while providing protection against the dangers of mosquitoes and ticks.
We focus on eradicating breeding grounds and other likely mosquito-prone areas on your property.

You may think having an unprotected property means you will have a few pesky mosquitoes here and there. You will have to light a candle or spray some spray when you are going outside for the evening, no big deal. Right? Wrong. What you don’t know can hurt you, and your neighbors. It only takes one bite from one mosquito carrying West Nile Virus (WNV) or Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) or another mosquito-borne illness to make you, a loved one very sick.
Here at Mosquito Squad of Greater Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra we like numbers. Numbers help us make sure we are doing our job. How many mosquitoes did you see in your yard before we treated it? How many did you see after?Numbers are a perfect measuring tool. Let’s look at the numbers to see how the mosquito populations can grow in on your unprotected St. John’s property in just four (4) short weeks:
And it begins… one female mosquito bites you. The blood you provided her allows her to develop viable eggs. This little lady goes and lays up to 300 eggs at one time! (She can lay 3 batches of eggs in her lifetime.) About half of these 300 eggs will become egg laying female mosquitoes, hanging out in your backyard waiting for a meal to help them produce their 300 eggs.
Now you have 151 female mosquitoes on your property laying eggs. Not only will these mosquitoes be gaining 300 new siblings as Mom lays 300 more eggs, but they are also making Momma mosquito a grandma to 45,000 grandbabies. Add the grandbabies and siblings up and you have 45,300 new mosquitoes during week two.
It is safe to assume half of week two’s new mosquitoes are egg laying females, or 22,650. Do you want to do the math? 22,650 × 300 eggs each = 6,795,300 new mosquitoes and that is just from the mosquitoes that hatched from week 2. You still have to add their mothers’ new batch of eggs laid (for simplicity we will skip that part).
Keep doing the math as we have before and week three’s 3,397,000 new female mosquitoes are laying their eggs in week four. We are talking about 1,319,250,000 mosquitoes in your yard in just four weeks. Four weeks is all it takes for 1 female mosquito to turn into 1.3+ billion mosquitoes!!
