As the founding site of Charleston and the State of South Carolina, West Ashley is rich with history and culture. While the area has seen much growth in both population and development in the last 300 years, living west of the Ashley River has more perks than pitfalls. From the beautiful and historic Magnolia Plantation and Gardens to Charles Towne Landing, from the farmers markets to the moss-draped oak trees, the community here is something to be proud of. However, with the waterfront vistas and marshes come mosquitoes, which can be a buzzkill living in an otherwise perfect place.
When the bugs are bugging you so much that you can’t even enjoy your own yard on a nice summer evening, that’s when you need to alert the Squad. Mosquito Squad of Greater Charleston is the originator, leader, and most trusted name in mosquito control in West Ashley and the rest of the country, with over 200 locations and recently expanding internationally.
Living so close to marshlands and rivers means a constant battle with mosquitoes, as they breed in slow-moving and stagnant waters. And with so much vegetation, there are plenty of places for them to hide during the daytime, only to come out in the evening for a feast of any warm-blooded creature they find. We’re here to make sure that’s not you or your family.
Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatments will knock down nearly 90% of the mosquito population in your yard on contact, and then continue to eliminate them for nearly three weeks before needing another application. Further, we treat and eliminate any mosquito-breeding sites on your property with larvicide, which eliminates younger mosquitoes before they can mature. This halts the life cycle of the mosquito population in your yard, which is a key part of our mosquito control in West Ashley, but the secret to keeping the mosquitoes away for up to three weeks is in our EPA-registered formula.
Developed by using micro-encapsulation, our odorless, colorless solution is applied by our certified technicians using mist blower backpacks to all the mosquito-friendly places in your yard, and beyond. We are careful to avoid anything that bees like to pollinate, but otherwise we get all vegetation, including bushes, leaves and their undersides, woodpiles, underneath decks, etc. We work from the perimeter of your yard and move inward, and within 30 minutes you can get back to enjoying your yard and the barrier treatment is dry. At that point, we’ve already gotten rid of about 90% of the mosquitoes on contact, but since the formula is residual, it forms an invisible “barrier” or fence against mosquitoes by gradually releasing its active ingredients. When a mosquito tries to land on anything that has been treated, it is soon eliminated.
With a single barrier treatment from Mosquito Squad, you’ll be worry-free from mosquitoes and possibly contracting any of the diseases they could carry into your yard like West Nile virus, Eastern Equine encephalitis, or worse. For uninterrupted summers, we offer service packages to ensure you’re protected non-stop. But a Mosquito Squad barrier treatment isn’t just limited to your mosquito control in West Ashley —we also control other bugs. So if you’ve got a problem with spiders, fire ants, flies, etc., let the Squad know and we’ll take care of them for you.
If you want on-demand mosquito control in West Ashley or especially if you’ve got a problem with no-see-ums, we highly recommend one of our automatic misting systems for continuous protection. Misting systems are the only way to control no-see-ums since they have such a short life cycle. Our technicians will specially design and install a misting system for your property that will release a mist at specific times of day for about 45 seconds at a time, and you have the power to release it on your command with the included remote control and app. This way you’re even able to adjust the misting schedule if you’d like to. When you get an automatic misting system from Mosquito Squad, we take care of everything for you from refills to repairs to seasonal setup and winterization. It’s a true “set it and forget it” solution for your no-see-um and mosquito control for your West Ashley home.
Here at Mosquito Squad, we’re confident in the effectiveness of all of our products and services, but if you’re not 100% satisfied, let us know and we’ll either give your yard another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked.

Are you planning a special event outdoors this season? Perhaps a wedding, a party for a new graduate, or even a family reunion? The last thing anyone wants at their party is for people to be swatting themselves and scratching mosquito bites. Alert the Squad beforehand for a special event mosquito control service.
We’ll treat the site a day or two in advance with our barrier treatment, ensuring you occasion will be mosquito free. It doesn’t need to be at your house — we’ll come out to any site. It usually only takes us about 20 minutes to do a treatment (depending on the size of the area, of course), and around 30 minutes to dry, so if you’re juggling coordination of other party prep such as caterers, it’s easy to schedule.
All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who prefer to avoid synthetics all together. That’s why we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution that we mix in-house using essential oils and a few other key ingredients to keep the bugs away.
Like our traditional formula, our all-natural solution also knocks down mosquitoes on contact, but then acts as a repellant, not an eliminator. You may notice a slight botanical smell after application, but it wears off to the human nose in a couple hours. However, to a bug, it confuses and “chases” them off your property. Our all-natural formula is around 80% effective, and like the traditional formula, it’s also time released. But because of its botanical makeup, it breaks down slightly faster so we recommend re-application every two weeks instead of three.
