Enjoy the Outdoors Free From Mosquitoes

Enjoy the Outdoors Free From MosquitoesOne of the best times of the year for families is when the weather starts to warm up.  The flowers start to bloom and the lawn is awaken from the colder weather of winter.  Children can run around outside without having to be bundled up and the days are longer so that they can squeeze out every little bit of fun.  Families are having cookouts during the weekends and it just seems like life can’t get any better!  However, every year the outdoor fun faces the dreaded enemy, the mosquitoes!

Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance when they bite you, but they can also carry diseases like the West Nile virus and the Zika virus.  If you have mosquitoes around your house, it may just make your family decide to stay indoors.  You may wonder if there is a way to truly control your mosquito problem.  Take the outdoors back with Mosquito Squad!

Mosquito Squad is the original and most trusted mosquito eliminator for over 10 years. Using all products registered with the EPA, Mosquito Squad is on the cutting edge of technology and safety.   They offer comprehensive solutions to keep mosquitoes under control.  Mosquito Squad recommends their very own strategy of reducing mosquitoes. The 5 T’s is a program that many use to protect their families and pets throughout the season.

Five T’s Program

TIP over items in your yard to reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito breeding areas, including those in children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys; underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Other hot spots include gutters and flat roofs.

TOSS: Remove excess grass, leaves, firewood and clippings from yards, as these are areas ripe for breeding of mosquitoes.


TURN: Turn over larger yard items that could hold water like children’s portable sandboxes or plastic toys.


TARPS are the 4th requirement: If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water. Either remove them or keep them pulled tight to remove areas for mosquitoes to breed.

TREAT: Utilize Mosquito Squad’s Barrier Spray protection program around the home and yard. Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for spraying DEET-containing bug spray on you or your children.



Mosquito Squad’s treatment programs can eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes on a property.  For more information about Mosquito Squad and its services, you can call (804) 562-2394, email richmond@mosquitosquad.com, or visit their website at http://mosquitosquadrva.com.
