Flying pests like sweat bees and biting flies can easily spoil outdoor fun. In addition to being bothersome and irritating, the stings and bites of these insects are extremely uncomfortable. At Mosquito Squad, we help residents and commercial businesses rid their property of these annoyances with minimum fuss.
Our barrier protection treatment takes care of more than mosquitoes. Our experienced and knowledgeable technicians strategically apply our treatment to your private or commercial property to eliminate other adult insects as well, like ticks, biting flies, and sweat bees, on contact.
This protective barrier typically works for up to three weeks, although inclement weather can affect this. To enjoy season-long protection and pest control, we encourage you to schedule ongoing periodic applications of our traditional or all-natural treatment. We provide a reminder in advance of each upcoming treatment, and our techs leave notice for you after each reapplication.
We also offer an automatic misting system that we maintain and refill once the solution is low, so you don’t ever have to worry about rescheduling appointments again.
Our technicians are experienced in responsible treatment use. Our strategy is to eliminate or repel the pesky insects you don’t want, while minimizing harm to pollinators and other beneficial insects. We do this by being careful to avoid the treatment of blooming plants that attract honey bees and other pollinators, and by using a treatment amount that is responsible yet effective.
Note that with the responsible use of pesticides applied in a strategic manner, pollinators are far less likely to be harmed than commonly believed. In a recent USDA study regarding honey bees and pesticides, researchers discovered that past research results may have been biased, due to the fact that “many past researchers often based their experiments on extremely high amounts of pesticides—far more than a bee would normally encounter in its life." As a matter of fact, one Harvard scientist used doses “10-100 times higher than found in the real world” in his well-publicized study to support his claim that neonic pesticides were harmful.
In addition to our ecologically-aware methods of application, we also offer our customers an all-natural alternative. Our non-synthetic treatment is composed of essential oils and works as an insect repellent for up to 14 days per application.
Don’t subject your family, friends, guests, or pets to the annoying presence, painful stings, and bites of sweat bees and biting flies this spring and summer. Call on Mosquito Squad of Southwest and South Central Michigan to eliminate these pests and reclaim your outdoors.
