West Nile virus found in Western Mass

West Nile Virus has been found recently in many Western Massachusetts towns

There is a lot of press about the Zika virus. People have forgotten about West Nile virus.

West Nile is more of an immediate threat.

There are other mosquito-born disease out there. West Nile virus, EEE, and dengue fever are some.  All can have a significant impact on your health and the health of your loved ones..

Quite frankly, here in Western Mass and Northern Connecticut we are far more likely to contract one those viruses than the Zika virus.

Mosquito Shield and West Nile Virus featured on the news

We were featured on Western Mass News last season discussing this very topic.

The discussion was about the West Nile impacting towns in Western Mass and reporter Samara Abramson asked if we are hearing from people concerned about Zika.

We will get the occasional comment, but most of our customers really want the peace of mind that comes with not having to fend off mosquitoes in their backyards. It is about spending quality time in your yard.

We treat hundreds of properties in towns like Amherst, Agawam, Belchertown, Ludlow, Wilbraham, and Westfield.

The results are amazing.

Most of our customers have a new expectation level when it comes to being outside and they expect a mosquito-free experience. They expect our service technicians to be out on the property every 10-14 days to retreat with our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend.

Mosquito Shield technicians know what to look for when it comes to fighting mosquitoes. They turn over containers with standing water, remove items that might collect water, and seek out harboring areas to treat.

The service doesn’t protect against viruses, but it dramatically reduces the mosquito threat in backyards around the Valley.

We are currently at our half-season pricing (we treat right though October).  We can provide you with a mosquito protection plan for just $249. We also treat for events like outdoor weddings and parties.
