Staying Protected at your Kiawah and Seabook Island home

Though each species of mosquito may prefer a slightly different habitat, almost all kinds of still or slow-moving water will be attractive to at least some kind of mosquito, unless we take action to discourage them. Just as we pointed out in our recent blog The Secret to Keeping Your Island Home Mosquito Free is Mosquito Squad, Living in such close proximity to marshlands and inland lagoons, residents in these island areas need to remain vigilant about mosquito control in order to stay protected.

Our most popular treatment is our barrier protection treatment that effectively eliminates 85% – 90% of mosquitoes. It eliminates adult mosquitoes on contact and creates a barrier to reduce mosquito populations; this treatment also works on ticks. Our professional technicians strategically distribute our EPA-registered treatment throughout your backyard, which creates an odorless barrier that continues working for up to 21 days. This provides you and your family with a mosquito-free environment, so you can enjoy all your favorite outdoor activities.

Mosquito control is a group effort. By ensuring your yard is not a breeding ground for mosquitoes, you can help reduce the mosquito population within your yard, and influence the neighbors around you. In addition to having your property professionally treated, successful mosquito control also relies on common sense practices on the part of the homeowner. This means gaining a clear understanding of identifying and reducing potential mosquito breeding sites in and around your property.
