As warmer weather approaches, the Western Suffolk, Middle Suffolk, and Northern Nassau County areas will see mosquito and tick populations come back to life. These and other biting bugs are more than just a nuisance, they pose dangers to your family and pets. The mosquitoes found in our area can carry diseases like eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile, or Heartworms. Prevention is easy and the best solution for avoiding these dangers. Mosquito Squad of Western Suffolk offers yard treatments and service programs that stop biting pests in their tracks, making your backyard a much nicer — and safer — place to be.
In late October 2016, the New York State Department of Health received reports of two new cases of West Nile virus. This season, as the weather becomes more humid and mosquito populations grow much larger, the risk of West Nile transmission will be even greater. In fact, back in late August 2016, officials identified 118 mosquito pools that carried West Nile, five of which were in Nassau County and 19 of which were in Suffolk County. This is in addition to the region’s endemic Lyme disease risk via local ticks.
To protect you against these dangers, we use a mosquito barrier treatment to effectively eliminate the bugs on your property and prevent more from moving in. Our experienced technicians will manually spray your yard with our patented, traditional treatment strategically, targeting your yard’s perimeter and any location within that is likely to harbor mosquito populations.
For those who are interested, we also offer an all-natural solution made of essential oils meant to effectively repel mosquitoes for up to 14 days. We also create custom packages and solutions that fit your needs, rather than offering only one treatment schedule. Our treatments let you enjoy your yard without having to use excessive amounts of bug repellent or scented candles. We also provide Event Treatment Services that eliminate mosquitoes and ticks when you want to hold an outdoor reception or party.
We know how quickly mosquito and tick populations grow in Western Suffolk and Northern Nassau Counties and we know what attracts those bugs to your yard. Our yard treatment offers a level of protection and prevention that makes it so much easier to sit outside on a lovely, warm summer evening without having to dodge dive-bombing bugs.
