Stick with Mosquito Shield of West Michigan and a proven track record of getting rid of mosquitoes

What if there were invisible electromagnetic waves that could deter mosquitoes from your backyard? Or perhaps there is a magic bracelet that creates a mosquito protection barrier around your body when worn on your wrist.

These gimmicks, along with a Vitamin B patch that creates an invisible shield that works outward from its spot on your skin, are all currently on the market posing as effective mosquito repellent options.

The only thing they are missing? Results.

These products are gaining some traction in the marketplace because of a newly-heightened awareness of the problems that mosquitoes carry with their bite. Specifically, the spread of the Zika virus has brought mosquito-borne illnesses (including West Nile Virus, Triple E, and others) to the forefront.

Mosquito Shield of West Michigan customers have some peace of mind knowing that the products and systems used on their yards are not the latest in a trend to capitalize on a health scare. Mosquito Shield has developed its proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend over 15 years.

The product has a three-pronged attack on the mosquito, eradicating it on contact, masking the Co2 on your property, and repelling mosquitoes trying to get in from the outside. The product, along with a treatment cycle that is driven by weather, mosquito populations, and results has proven to be the best approach to getting rid of mosquitoes in your yard.

And what of the other products and their claims? It is too bad their claims are just that, says Joseph Conlon, technical adviser for the American Mosquito Control Association.

“Before it was a matter of laughable irony, but it could be a matter of life and death now, if you’re using things that just don’t work,” Conlon said in a recent interview.

Conlon has encountered dubious bug prevention ideas during his time with the association (think: dryer sheets, garlic, a marigold houseplant, oil of cloves and more) and during a career which includes two decades as an entomologist for the U.S. Navy.

For customers of Mosquito Shield of West Michigan, both the science and the results of this unique mosquito control system make sense.
