Mosquito Shield of Southeastern PA was founded in 2013, after we learned of an opportunity to bring this valuable, quality Mosquito spray service to our local community. Prior to that time, our mosquito reference was limited to a vague awareness of the potential of mosquitoes to transmit vector borne diseases like West Nile or Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), but our more immediate reality was that mosquitoes played a significant role in limiting the use of our own property. If only there was a way for us to be able to enjoy our beautiful back yard, hosting barbecues, sitting on the deck & watching children and dogs play at dusk – all without having to resort to candles, sticky repellents, swirly coils, etc.
While the Pennsylvania DEP works yearly with local governments to fund programs which use a “combination of education, surveillance, source reduction, and environmentally responsible insecticides to reduce risk of WNV“* our own experience showed us that there was a need for the customized residential solutions that Mosquito Shield has to offer to address both Mosquito as well as Tick Control at the property level. After extensive research and training, we emerged in the summer of 2013 as the first Pennsylvania Mosquito Shield franchise.
Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation was founded in North Attleboro, MA in 2001. Since that time the company spent the next 15 years researching the science behind the life cycle of the mosquito, tested various application methods and products, and determined optimum visit frequency. Early testing showed that just applying standard control materials (with water) didn’t deliver measurable and consistent results. After further study, they developed a patent-pending barrier spray that, regardless when started, lasts for weeks and grows in strength as the season progressed. Our Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), comprised of natural oils, both masks your CO2 and repels mosquitoes away from your property. Combining our MPB and select control materials, along with FlexBlend technology, has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
Since our inception, Mosquito Shield of Southeastern PA has been met with an overwhelmingly positive reception. Armed with our professional training and field expertise provided by our parent company, we have focused on introducing our service to PA counties of Chester, Delaware, Philadelphia and parts of Bucks and Montgomery, with the goal of exceeding customer expectations and providing superlative customer service. Our small company has doubled in size year over year, and we have been consistently met with reactions that boil down to the same sentiment: we are helping people change the way they use their yards.
