As North America’s largest and most trusted mosquito elimination and tick control brand, Mosquito Squad specializes in eliminating both mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces so that Americans can enjoy their yards, outdoor events, and outdoor living and dining spaces. Recognized as the country’s 13th fastest growing franchise concept by INC. Magazine, Mosquito Squad is America’s largest mosquito and tick control brand, with over 125 locations nationwide.

Now in its third year of business, Mosquito Squad of the Lowcountry serves residents throughout the area. Mary Anna Lewis offers the following tips for eliminating mosquitoes from local yards: 

1. Tip. Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including those underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls.

2. Toss. Excess grass, leaves, piles, fire wood.

3. Turn. Turn over larger items like children’s sandboxes, wagons or plastic toys.

4. Remove tarp. If tarps stretched over firewood piles, boats or sports equipment aren’t taut, they’re holding water.

5. Treat. Utilize a mosquito elimination barrier treatment around the home and yard.  Using a barrier treatment at home reduces the need for using DEET-containing bug spray. Mosquito Squad’s eliminates up to 90% of the mosquitoes and ticks on a property. 

Rockin’ on the porch, touch football games and grilling out are Lowcountry fall traditions. Mosquito Squad, North America’s largest and most trusted mosquito elimination and tick control brand, is ready to help Lowcountry residents make the time they spend outside even more enjoyable.

Owned by long-time locals, Mary Anna and David Lewis, Mosquito Squad specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces, allowing Americans to enjoy their yards, outdoor living spaces, special events and green spaces.

“Parents want their kids to be able to play outside without getting eaten alive. Our barrier spray treatments can provide a consistent level of coverage so that homeowners and their guests can enjoy mosquito-free days and nights,” says Mary Anna Lewis.

Mosquito Squad has been named as one of the country’s fastest growing franchise concepts in 2012 and 2011 by INC. Magazine. “We recognized the opportunity to finally bring an affordable, effective answer to an age-old question in our area-how do we get rid of mosquitoes? We love telling people we have a 100% percentsatisfaction/money-back guarantee because folks can use us completely risk-free.’

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the country’s first case of West Nile Virus was reported in Mississippi in early April. Last year, 5,387 cases of West Nile were reported with 243 deaths. West Nile is spread only via the bite of an infected mosquito. Incidents of Lyme disease, spread via ticks, have increased as well, with more than 32,000 confirmed and probable cases reported in 2012, up from 22,000 in 2011. Dogs are also susceptible to Lyme disease.
