Mosquitoes are possibly the single greatest nuisance plaguing our summer. As the evening arrives, so do the mosquitoes, making it hard to enjoy the yard, the pool, or even the deck! But they can be much more than mere “nuisances” that leave itchy welts: They can also spread diseases that seriously sicken, permanently disable, or even kill their victims. Mosquito-borne diseases include, but are not limited to, West Nile Virus and EEE, which have sickened or killed thousands in the USA. Local mosquitoes can carry both.
Mosquito Treatment Program
To maintain a mosquito free or a greatly reduced mosquito population in your landscape, regular treatment is necessary. But also SAFE treatments should be a high priority for you, your family, and pets. Many mosquito treatments are inexpensive… but unsafe. Others are safe, but ineffective.
We use PERMETHRIN, a product, which has been specifically formulated for use in residential settings. This is the #1 treatment recommended by the URI Tick Awareness Center. While this is NOT TOXIC to humans, pets, and birds, it is TOXIC to mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, ants, and spiders. After a one hour drying time, it is completely safe for walking and playing. For once it dries, usually after 30 minutes, it sticks to the grass and brush, and does not rub off on passers by. It also resists getting washed off by rain for several weeks. Another attribute to PERMETHRIN is that it adheres to the top 4cm of soil/surface and is biodegraded by sunlight and soil organisms. This means that after a few weeks, there is absolutely no residue from a spray, as opposed to other materials which slowly toxify your property. Because our product does not permeate the soil layer, it Does Not Affect your well water. Once again, it is deadly for mosquitoes, ticks, spiders, and ants, but safe for us.
I, Ames Kaiser (owner), apply these sprays to my own yard several times per season to control ticks and mosquitoes. Why? Because I know that the program is family and pet safe… and it works.
The result? The treatments have eliminated ticks and reduced our mosquito population almost completely.
Depending on the level of control you seek, you can choose to have us spray anywhere from 3 to 6 times per season. Treatments are most effective for 3-4 weeks. To maintain the highest level of control, we recommend 3 week intervals between sprays.
Some families occupy their homes for only July and August. For them, just 2 sprays per season can work!
Weddings and Event Sprays
To protect you and your guests from mosquitoes at weddings, barbecues, or other scheduled outdoor events, Ocean State Tick and Mosquito Control arrives at your site the morning of the event or the day before.
Ocean State Tick and Mosquito Control experts treat the entire event area with Talstar, a highly effective, recommended material that is environmentally friendly and will not leach into ground water. Lawn and heavy vegetative areas receive particularly close attention from our staff.
After just one hour of drying, the yard will be 100% safe for use by adults, children, and pets.
Excellent mosquito control can be obtained from a well-timed wedding or special event spraying such as this.
Just wanted you to know that I couldn’t be more pleased with the job that your crew did for me. They were outstanding!
You saved my big holly tree, thanks.
I was very pleased with their service. We have a beautiful old oak that was beginning to dry up and lose leaves. It didn’t look healthy. We were thrilled that the tree recovered. We would highly recommend them.
These guys are scientists, not just tree cutters. They are very professional. We will use them again and highly recommend them. They were polite, personable and just great guys. WE had a Japanese maple trimmed back as well as some yew bush fixing and fertilization. They did the job to perfection. They were in and out and cleaned up the mess and took everything with them.
Kaiser is great, they have been so helpful to us in bringing back to life many of our Japanese Maple trees. We have several rare specimens and they were infested with Winter Moth and then with Cottony Scale. Last year they sprayed for both and did a deep root fertilization to all of our trees and shrubs and everything looks amazing this year. We couldn’t be happier with the service. They are all very professional and very approachable. I highly recommend them!
From the first phone call, to the contract writing, until the expert job done today, there is nothing but praise for your team. You handled my tree with great care. Your crew leader moved rapidly and the team was right with him. He was efficient but cut each limb with a professional eye. I wrote to BBB but see you are already A+.
I was very impressed with the detailed and itemized list of work that Ames Kaiser and I had discussed. He listed each item individually and was specific in what was to be done. Each time I called, I spoke with a knowledgeable, pleasant woman in the office. Ames returned my calls promptly, and gave me his personal cell phone number to call back. The crew that came to do the work was also very knowledgeable and professional. The work was done neatly and no mess was left in my yard. I would hire them again in a minute, not just for tree cutting but for tree maintenance and to preserve the health of my trees. I was very impressed.
