Professional Mosquito & Tick Control Experts Serving all of Eastern Massachusetts.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are Mosquito Enemy products safe for my family and pets?
Absolutely! All of our products are guaranteed to be safe for humans and pets so that you know you are not taking risks with anyone’s health or safety. Our two mist solutions are broken down here so that you can see exactly what we’re putting into your yard:
Standard & natural mosquito control options are available!
We also offer organic mosquito repellent.
Our standard mosquito control option is made up of the extracted juices from African Chrysanthemum flowers. This recipe has been Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved. This is most effective with ticks, mosquitoes, and fleas. The treatment should be applied every 21 days between April and October for maximum results. For those who suffer from sensitivities, you’ll be happy to know that it is odor-free.
Our natural mosquito control option is constructed with a carefully constructed blend of oils, all of which are natural and therefore have no need for an EPA certification. Just as effective as our first mist option, but this blend that will simply repel those bothersome pests instead of killing them outright. Again, this should be applied between April and October, and should be re-applied every 14 days for maximum effect.
Prefer organic mosquito repellent? Cedar oil is used in the perimeter pest control application that we offer. Mosquito Enemy works hard to bring maximum comfort and safety to your yard with many different mosquito control options.
How long will it take for me to receive a free, no obligation estimate?
It won’t take long at all. In fact, if you call by 12:00PM you will even get an estimate that very same day. Additionally, if you determine that Mosquito Enemy is the right match for you during the estimate meeting and agree with the custom barrier spray pricing and terms, you will be happy to know that our technician can even apply the chosen product right then and there, so you can start enjoying your yard again.
Will it cost me any money to meet with a Mosquito Enemy technician?
Not at all. Simply call us or send us an email in request for a no obligation estimate for your home or business at a convenient time for you. It’s that simple.
Can I receive a one-time barrier spray for an outdoor wedding, birthday, or graduation party?
Yes, absolutely. A Mosquito Enemy technician will apply a special barrier spray treatment for ticks and mosquitoes approximately 24-48 hours before your event takes place. The best thing is, this barrier will be effective for up to three weeks after the application. Sounds like a good reason to throw another party, right?
How will I know when Mosquito Enemy will be applying a barrier spray to my yard?
We will give you 24 hours notice through an email before we come to apply the Mosquito Enemy product to your yard. The spray will be applied every 21 days. If there are changes to be made to your plan or schedule, you can notify us once the 24 hour notice is given.
How long does it take to do a barrier spray treatment?
The average sized yard takes between 10-20 minutes to treat. Larger sized yards will take longer to complete.
How does the barrier spray kill the mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are attracted to your yard because of the leaf nectar they feed on. With a barrier spray on the leaves, the spray will attach to the body of the mosquito and kill them on contact.
Do you spray the grass?
No, there is no need to spray the grass, as mosquitoes have no interest in it. We are thorough in our spraying, however, treating areas that are damp and shady such as shrubs or areas under decks (popular mosquito hang outs). We want to make sure that every potential spot for a mosquito is taken care of by our barrier mist.
Can my family or my pets enjoy the yard while Mosquito Enemy is treating our property?
Typically, Mosquito Enemy treatments take 30 minutes to dry completely. After it is dry, you are free to use your yard as you would normally with no health risk to you or your pets.
Do you have all-natural barrier spray mosquito products as an option?
Yes, absolutely! You can choose from two options for your natural mosquito control spray: lemon or peppermint. This barrier spray acts as a repellent instead of a contact-killer like the normal barrier mist spray. The all-natural barrier spray will have to be applied every 14 days, and there is a chance that you will see one or two mosquitoes around your property, but the spray does a great job at repelling mosquitoes and ticks from your yard.
Does the all-natural barrier spray product have a strong odor?
For approximately 24 hours after the application of the barrier spray, there will be a smell, which will become less potent after the 24 hours has passed. The smell is required to repel the mosquitoes, as their strong sense of smell is what will keep them off of your property.
Do I need to be home for your service?
No, you can continue with your normal schedule. We will ring your doorbell on arrival, and if we receive no answer, will apply your barrier spray protection as normal. Once we’ve finished, we will leave an invoice on your door with comments or special instructions.
Does Mosquito Enemy service commercial accounts?
Yes! We are proud to offer our services to both residential and commercial properties. Amongst our clientele are restaurants with patios, campgrounds, parks, recreational areas, HOA pools, playgrounds, and manufacturing companies. Mosquitoes are everywhere, after all.
Are there any guarantees?
Yes, there are. We want to make sure that each client is happy with the results of the barrier spray. If you are unhappy, please call us at Mosquito Enemy, and we will re-apply the barrier spray up to 8 days after the initial application for our traditional barrier spray, and after 7 days for our all-natural product.
My city sprays for mosquitoes, why should I use your services?
Typically, city sprays are done quickly to rid highly popular areas of adult mosquitoes. This is normally done with a fogger machine, and, as such, will very rarely reach your back yard and the mosquitoes living in it. Mosquito Enemy will be thorough in our application, walking around the perimeter of your yard during the application process to make sure that there are no missed spots. Additionally, the spray is applied to top and bottom of leaves in your yard, and will kill mosquitoes on contact as well as the eggs they leave behind.
Are Mosquito Enemy employees licensed and insured?
Yes, absolutely. All employees working for Mosquito Enemy are both licensed and insured in pesticides with the State of Massachusetts. Mosquito Enemy employees must also keep up to date on their certification classes and qualifications.
