When it comes to preventing mosquitoes at your home or business, it is normal to have questions. At Mosquito Squad of Greater Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra, we want to hear from you. We are happy to answer as many questions and necessary and have even addressed some of the most common questions below:
Will Mosquito Squad eliminate every mosquito on my property?
There is no possible solution that can completely eradicate every mosquito 100%. With short life-cycles and the ability to fly, there will be some movement. We do, however, estimate a reduction of 85-90%, and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee to back it up.
How does “barrier treatment” work to eliminate mosquitoes?
Our traditional mosquito barrier treatment is applied by our highly trained technicians to your entire property. They give special attention to areas where mosquitoes are likely to spend most of their time, as well as the places you are likely to spend most of your time. The product eliminates mosquitoes on contact, but also sticks to the foliage and continues to eliminate mosquitoes for three weeks.
How safe are your products?
As always, all products used my Mosquito Squad are used according to the label. Barrier Treatment products are registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which means the ingredients have been scrutinized and tested for safety for consumer use when applied according to the label. Homeowners utilize our treatments to reduce the risks of contracting vector-borne illness such as West Nile virus and tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme disease, which can both cause lifelong health issues.
Can my children play in the yard during a Mosquito Squad treatment?
When treating a yard, we ask that the homeowner, children, and pets stay inside for just 30 minutes, which allows the products to dry. After that, they are free to enjoy their backyards and other outdoor living spaces. Quite frankly, it is no different from staying off of your lawn for a recommended period of time after a lawn treatment has been applied. We inform each homeowner of this recommendation prior to treating and if you are not home, we email or leave a notice alerting you to the date and time we treated your property.
What if it rains right after my scheduled treatment?
Targeted surfaces are the underside of leaves and shaded areas; these tend to be protected from the rain. Additionally, when the product has dried (after about 30 minutes) rain and water do not easily wash away the treatment. If it begins raining before your treatment has dried, and you notice a diminished effectiveness, please call us and we will retreat at no cost to you.
What do you treat?
Mosquito Squad’s trained technicians treat areas where mosquitoes and ticks breed, feed or rest. Treated surfaces include shrubbery, gardens, underneath decks, fences, the foundations of houses, tall grasses and low hanging vegetation. Not only are our technicians trained in accordance with local and state requirements, but our in-house program educates them on conditions and situations that are specific to mosquito and tick breeding. Due to this specific training, they are experts in mosquito and tick elimination.
Does it work?
Yes, and we guarantee it! While no service can offer 100 percent protection from every mosquito and tick, you should notice an enormous reduction of over 90 percent in the mosquito and tick population in your yard. If you don’t experience this reduction and are not satisfied, we will promptly return and retreat your property at no charge to you.
