It's kind of a good news - bad news situation: Ticks are expected to be active longer this year due to warmer falls, but Mosquito Squad offers a pre-season tick treatment to minimize their damage.

Of course, now's the perfect time to arrange for treatments for ticks, mosquitos, and other insect pests. Mosquito Squad expects to offer add-on treatments against flies, ants, spiders, and more soon.

Locally owned and operated, Mosquito Squad has helped hundreds of thousands of families and businesses repel mosquitos and ticks from their properties using their Protective Barrier Treatment, which is proven to mosquito and tick activity about 80-85% for 21 days before reapplication is needed.

Mosquito Squad's technicians will focus on the standing vegetation along the perimeter and interior of your property and pay special attention to your outdoor living area. Each treatment takes anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to apply and you just need to give it 30 minutes to dry before you're able to go back to your normal activities.

To help keep mosquitos away between treatments, they suggest:

  • Remove standing water from toys, small kid pools, buckets, etc.)
  • Keep yards clean of debris.  

You can expect Mosquito Squad's team to be prompt with the treatment times and thoroughly answer any questions or concerns you might have. To take back your yard, simply give Mosquito Squad a call today at 413-315-5509 or visit them online at
