Dread Skeeter for Mosquito Squad

Dread Skeeter of Mosquito Squad tells Mosquitoes "bite me".

Would you pay about $3 a day to not have the worry of mosquitoes and ticks the entire season? For the same price as that fancy espresso latte’ you’re sipping on? The answer to most of us would be a undoubtedly YES.

Mosquito Squad of Mt. Laurel can spray your entire premise to ensure you stay mosquito and tick free this season by setting you up on our rotation to spray every 21 days throughout the entire season. We spray your entire perimeter each time we visit, not just the lawn, like many other companies do. We spray your mulch, ivy, bushes, around your deck, the lower part of all your trees and if you have a pool, we spray around that as well. If you have a garden we treat this area with our all natural spray. Mosquito Squad of Mt. Laurel does not spray your flowers and we are careful not to treat around any areas that have fish such as koi ponds. Mosquito Squad also never harms beneficial pollinators such as honeybees, we avoid treating areas that contain blossoms where those pollinators collect nectar and pollen.

Mosquito Squad of Mount Laurel uses the same active ingredient that is found in your lice shampoos and tick collars. Treatment is safe for your domesticated pets as long as they are not in the yard when we spray. Each treatment we apply will have a residual of 21 days, so staying on our rotation cycle during the spring and summer months can ensure you and your family’s happiness and reduces the risk of dangerous mosquitoes and ticks.

Children and pets usually spend more time outdoors, so they are more at risk of contracting a dangerous insect-borne illness such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, Encephalitis , Ehrlichiosis and heartworms in pets. These groups are more vulnerable as well for the illness to become life threatening.

The spray itself kills mosquitoes and ticks on contact and then the residue on the plants will kill the new mosquitoes and ticks that enter your yard. Our service is automatic, so you don’t have to think about it, or call for scheduling . As a matter of fact, our service is effortless and it probably won’t even cross your mind with the absence of mosquitoes biting you.

If you have special circumstances that put you at risk for tick exposure such as property adjacent to the woods, property that contains a wood fence, property which has dense ground covering or dense trees and shrubbery, property which contains a brush, wood or compost pile and pets that are allowed outdoors, talk to your Mosquito Squad of Mt. Laurel representative about special safety measures that can help reduce tick exposure.

Have you ever heard the old saying “if you can’t beat them, join them”? That is exactly what I did when I was searching for a company here in Mount Laurel to treat my lawn and yard for ticks. I have a natural wetland in my backyard and this area is not only a nirvana for mosquitoes but also for ticks because of the long grass that are common in a wetland setting.

I know first hand about the dangers of ticks, and especially the tick-borne illness’ that can inflict us. I suffered from Rocky Mountain spotted Fever a few years ago and didn’t catch it on time and now suffer permanent ramifications from the illness. Then again last year I thought I had another tick bite. Initially my physician did not take me seriously about the possibility of having another tick-borne illness. When my doctor finally tested me I was diagnosed with Ehrlichiosis.  Ehrlichiosis ( pronounced err-lick-ee-o-sis) is a bacterial infection  found all over the U.S. that is spread by the lone star tick, deer tick and the dog tick.

When the second illness was confirmed I had already been on weekly injections for five and a half years for the rocky mountain spotted fever. The rocky mountain spotted fever had already progressed to chronic by the time it was caught. The ehrlichiosis was transitioning to chronic when it was diagnosed but was caught early enough to treat with antibiotics. The rocky mountain spotted fever, along with the weekly injections to keep the disease in check have made it difficult for me to live in the manner I always had. Five years ago I ran a triathlon and now I cannot even run. The disease has also caused inflammation of my large joints and without the injections there are some days I can’t even take my hands above my head. My life has changed dramatically from the active lifestyle I had previously before these tick-borne illness’ invaded my body and life.The long term prognosis is frustratingly unknown as well, with side effects such as lymphoma , memory loss and loss of energy.

After the diagnosis of both the rocky mountain spotted fever and the ehrlichiosis I searched in vain for a company to treat my lawn and yard area for ticks. After an exhaustive search, I decided to buy a company that could properly treat for ticks, so I started Mosquito Squad of Mount Laurel. I spray our garlic spray in my wetland and garden area  to help keep the ticks and the deer that carry the infected ticks at bay, I then spray the main property on a regular basis with our barrier spray.
