Don’t let mosquitoes ruin the rest of your summer

Was your 4th of July celebration filled with the worst of the uninvited guests-mosquitoes?

Was your 4th of July celebration filled with the worst of the uninvited guests-mosquitoes?

How was your Independence day celebration? Did you and your family and friends get together for a little outdoor grilling, conversation and to show your patriotism for our nations birthday? I am sure like many folks all over this great land of ours you planned your celebration with relaxation, comfort and enjoyment in mind. But apparently the mosquitoes “thought” they were invited to the festivities as well!

Yikes, the mosquitoes came for the fun and invited all their friends and family as well. Maybe your celebration went a little like this… there were mosquitoes at the cookout, mosquitoes at dinner, mosquitoes while roasting marshmallows, mosquitoes during conversation and mosquitoes while we were trying to enjoy that decadent after dinner dessert or beverage. If this reads like a page from your diary, Mosquito Squad has the answer to all your mosquito woes.

Mosquito Squad keeps you and your family mosquito free

Mosquito Squad keeps you and your family mosquito free

On Independence day, and any other day during this season, many of us entertain outdoors and this is especially true during the dusk and evening hours.  Mosquitoes are evening feeders and like to feed under the veil of night and cooler temperatures. Mosquitoes usually feed during those same times that we enjoy entertaining so effective mosquito control is a necessity for anyone who enjoys entertaining  outdoors during the spring and summer.

Mosquito Squad makes mosquito control effortless with our barrier sprays. Our safe and effective barrier spray kills mosquitoes and prevents more mosquitoes from “celebrating” in your yard. Mosquito Squad sprays regularly scheduled sprays throughout the season to keep your property free of the little pests all summer long. Our barrier spray is applied approximately every 21 days for continuous mosquito control. We also have an all-natural solution which offers  effective continuous mosquito control and is applied approximately every 14 days. When I say Mosquito Squad is effortless, it truly is, all you do to get started is contact your local Mosquito Squad to sign up and that’s it- we do the rest. You won’t have to worry about scheduling the spraying, or keep track of anything, we take care of the rest. You probably won’t even give mosquitoes a second thought since you and your family won’t be getting bit.

Watch Fireworks and Fight the Bite!

With barrier sprays you're bite free for days!

With barrier sprays you're bite free for days!

The day is getting closer by the moment! I fired up my grill yesterday to make sure that everything is up and running. Now I’m trying to make the critical decision to cook up some steaks or go with my special cheeseburger recipe. Either way I know I won’t be the only one with outdoor plans or manning the grill come 4th of July. It is arguably the mother of all weekend barbeque cookouts. After all what’s better than hanging with friends and family, maybe having a couple drinks, and eating good food? All followed by the big firework finale at the end of the night! However I wanted to remind you, that to my knowledge, Mosquitoes also observe this beloved holiday. So you better believe they will be on the prowl, excited about the variety of people to pester.

With all the time and effort that goes into a great family/friend get together, don’t let these little buggers ruin your time. Check out a Mosquito Squad in your area to get a great deal on a “Special Event” spray. They can complete the spray now and you will be protected for the next 21 days, and ready to party only an hour later! Oh and don’t worry about the harmful chemicals… the product used is actually considerably less toxic that “DEET”, the chemical found in most all insect repellants that are applied to your skin!

So make this coming holiday memorable and bite free!

Bug zappers vs. Barrier spray

Winner: A unanimous decision by the judges – Barrier spray!

Do you remember those UV bug zappers? You would sit outside and listen to the periodic zapping sound throughout the night and feel a little more relaxed knowing that the casualties were piling up. With each zap you might crack a slight smile thinking, “That’s one less pest to make its way to me!” Well to those of you who are using the zappers now, or to the others who recently invested in the $60 state-of-the art model, I hope you saved your receipt! It may surprise you to hear this fact I found while perusing the web:

“Each night zappers kill about 3,000 beneficial insects such as moths and butterflies, which pollinate flowers, but only a handful of mosquitoes. A Notre Dame University study in South Bend Indiana showed that people with a zapper in their backyard got bit 10% more than people without one because zappers attracted mosquitoes but did not kill them. UV light also helps mosquitoes find water where they lay their eggs. When UV light is reflected off the surface of water it is polarized. Like polarized sunglasses that reduce glare and help you see objects morbug zappere clearly, the mosquitoes follow the polarized light to the water to lay their eggs. Because they attract large bugs, they are purposefully designed to explode them so they don’t accumulate and become a fire hazard. Exploding bug-fragments drift on the air. People and food nearby may be contaminated by insect-fragments from the zapper.”

Don’t waste your time or money on products that don’t work. Go with a guaranteed solution to your mosquito problems with a Mosquito Squad barrier spray.

There are plenty of activities to keep families busy, between parks, sports, and festivals. Whether as a parent or just someone who enjoys the great outdoors, the last thing you want to worry about are bug bites.
Your mosquito bites may be annoying and painful, but they’re also dangerous. Check out this article I found recently…

Pulling malaria from mosquitoes to fight disease

LAURAN NEERGAARD

The Associated Press
Tuesday, June 9, 2009; 3:03 AM

“WASHINGTON– Think your job’s tedious? Try beheading 100 mosquitoes an hour.

Gently, no smushing allowed. Malaria parasites lurk in these mosquitoes’ salivary glands, and a small company on the outskirts of the nation’s capital needs them unharmed for a dramatic test – attempting the first live vaccine to fight malaria.

A global push is on to eradicate this ancient scourge, and increasingly scientists are exploring how to use the mosquito itself to help – not just with the vaccine research but also, conversely, by breeding insects that are less able to spread malaria. “

Read more from Washingtonpost.com

The article mentions some scary statistics. Nearly a quarter-billion people get malaria each year, and it kills almost 1 million.

While malaria is not a problem in the U.S., the West Nile Virus and Lyme Disease are.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes and ticks with the help of Mosquito Squad. It’s fast, easy, AND it takes the worry out of outdoor fun.
