Mosquito Shield

About Mosquito Shield

Mosquito Shield is a mosquito and tick control company that uses professionally applied mosquito spray to kill and repel mosquitoes and ticks. Using a three-pronged approach and a one-of-a-kind protection blend treatment, Mosquito Shield masks carbon dioxide - which attracts mosquitos - and repels them away from the property. The spray adheres to vegetation, wood, stone/brick and other organic materials, creating a vertical barrier that strengthens with each visit.

Only Mosquito Shield uses FlexBlend spray technology and monitors both mosquito population and weather conditions to maximize effectiveness, making adjustments when needed, to deliver superior results and satisfaction.

Mosquito Shield was conceptualized in 2001 in North Attleboro, Massachusetts by David Briggs. It was clear to Briggs that available mosquito control products like body sprays, candles and mosquito magnets were inadequate, and there was a lack of an effective residential mosquito control service. During the next 15 years, prior to the company's 2012 launch, Briggs and Mosquito Shield developers researched the science behind the life cycle of mosquitoes, tested various application methods and products and determined optimum application frequency. Early testing showed that just applying standard control materials (with water) didn't deliver measurable and consistent results. After further study, Briggs developed a patent-pending barrier spray that, regardless of when started, lasts for weeks and grows in strength as the season progresses. That formula breakthrough led to early success for Mosquito Shield and has put the company at the forefront of outdoor mosquito and tick control.
