“In 2021, we couldn’t enjoy our backyard because there were so many mosquitoes,” says Dan Martin of Mosquito Shield of Western Oakland County MI. “We tried candles, repellants, and everything else we could think of to get rid of the mosquitoes, but nothing worked. We still ended up being bit by mosquitoes every time we went outside.” Sound familiar? Many of us thrill when warmer weather arrives, but spending more time swatting at pests than relaxing in the backyard can really dampen a family barbecue, enjoying a cocktail on the patio, or playing with the kids on the lawn.
In frustration, Dan tried looking for professional mosquito control services, adding mosquito control onto his lawn treatment plan. “That didn’t work either,” he says. “Then a friend who lives in Kalamazoo recommended Mosquito Shield. He is a longtime customer and thought it would work for me.” The only problem was, at the time Mosquito Shield did not have a location in southeast Michigan. “That’s when I started looking at bringing Mosquito Shield to this area.”
Dan found Mosquito Shield to be different from other mosquito control options he tried. “The biggest thing that separates Mosquito Shield from the competition is the number of treatments,” he says. “We tend to provide twice as many treatments as our competitors by servicing properties every 10 to 17 days. This allows us to kill the mosquitos, then create and maintain a barrier around the property that repels mosquitoes.”
Mosquito Shield of Western Oakland County MI, says Dan, is an outdoor living company. “We help our customers enjoy their outdoor space to its fullest potential. Mosquito Shield wants you to enjoy your patio, deck, pool, firepit, and yard areas mosquito-free.” Dan backs this up by striving to provide the best possible service to his customers. “We have a money back guarantee on mosquito control service. We also offer a no-cost retreatment guarantee which means that in the unlikely event that a customer has a problem within a few days of treatment, we will return and retreat their property before the next scheduled service at no charge.”
At home, Dan and his wife are sports fans with a busy family. Whether you have children who play sports, as Dan’s do, or just enjoy lounging in the sun, Dan wants to help you do it mosquito-free. “As native Michiganders, we understand how short and valuable the warm weather season is in Michigan. We want to help make this time as enjoyable as possible for our customers.”
