“I have worked with Mosquito Squad for three years now; every year has been a great experience. When we have hosted parties they have worked with us to change the schedule, so they've been very accommodating—A+.”
“We live near a wetland area, and without Mosquito Squad it would be impossible to spend any time outdoors in the evenings during the summer. We have used them for the last three years and will continue doing so—A.”
“I have a large yard with plenty of trees and grass. I used the organic Mosquito Squad product and was extremely thrilled with the overall outcome. I already have them scheduled for 2017—A.”
“Great job—had no mosquitoes at all during the past summer—A+.”
“We couldn't be happier.”
“Not all technicians were the same—some were more thorough than others but overall, I'm pleased with the service and already signed up for a full season next year. The company readily responded when I needed a second treatment at no charge.”
“No mosquitoes. No complaints.”
“Started 5 years ago when I couldn't even water my plants without 15 or more mosquito bites. Now have grandson that we can take outside without worrying about getting bit up. I'm also into wildlife and habitat and I haven't had or seen any problems with having this done in our wooded area. Still plenty of birds and bats.”
“Every now and then I see a stray mosquito, but if I call Mosquito Squad they come re-spray right away.”
“They did what they promised; an outside space free of mosquitos!”
“We did find the service effective, however, only effective as the weather would allow it to be. The rain decreases the length of effectiveness.”
“We live nearby a wet land area and without Mosquito squad it would be impossible to spend any time outdoors in the evenings during the summer. We have used them for the last 3 years and will continue doing so.”
“If I had a problem, they were very quick to respond.”
“The crew came every three weeks to spray for mosquito abatement. My wife is a mosquito magnet. We have lived in our home 31 years, and she has been able to be outside more this summer than the previous 3 decades combined. This is one of the best decisions I ever made.”
“Mosquito Squad sprayed our front and backyard. Their service is life changing. We used our patio these last two years more than in the ten years before combined.”
“This summer has been wonderful. As everyone around us is complaining about how bad the bugs have been, we have been enjoying our backyard this summer. We will definitely be signing up for the service next year.”
“They sprayed my entire yard with mosquito spray. They were on time, professional, and polite. Also, it worked fabulously.”
“I had a wonderful experience with Mosquito Squad—we didn't have any mosquitoes. The quality of work was fine. They sprayed for mosquitoes. I have used them twice in the past two years. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“Mosquito Squad does maintenance. They come for a certain amount of time in the summer for the ticks and mosquitoes. This is my third year using them. They always let me know when they are on their way, and they post signs up for everyone to see. It takes about half an hour for the product to dry. I have a beautiful dog at home, and I have never had a problem. I would give them an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad has been with me for three years, so they've been doing a fine job. They kill mosquitoes for me. I need their services because I live on four and a half acres, and there are plenty of mosquitoes. I would give them the best grade, an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad is excellent. They do what they say they're going to do. I could tell a noticeable difference in mosquitoes. I've been using them a little over a year and a half. I would give them an A+ grade.”
“I highly recommend Mosquito Squad. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“We have used Mosquito Squad for a couple of years and are using them again this year. What I like about Mosquito Squad is that the product is effective, and if we have weather issues where the product is put down and shortly thereafter the rains wash away some of the spray, I make a simple call to them and they come right back out. If not that day, they come back the next day and they correct the problem. This is the only service they provide for me. I live by an area that's got about a ten-acre pond behind my home. I definitely need their services. I would give them the highest rating, an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad was accommodating. We live in a wooded area, and that is why we needed their service. I am not sure if they use organic or chemical solution, but everything was perfect—A+.”
“They were awesome, and it was effective. We really weren't dealing with as many bugs as we were before, and it didn't seem intrusive. I don't know what they do to get rid of them. I'm not sure what kind of chemicals they use, but it was pet-friendly and hasn't really injured our lawn or anything like that. They came out with a backpack type of canister and sprayed around the property. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“I have a pool in my back yard that I wasn't able to go swimming in on hot summer nights because I would be engulfed with mosquitoes. Ever since I have used their service, I have no mosquitoes. It is awesome, and I would recommend them to others. They just serviced me for mosquitoes. I have been using them for two years, and this is my third year. They're an A+.”
“What they said actually worked. We didn't have any mosquitoes. The reason I need their services is we're surrounded by swamp, and it is a nightmare. So, I was very impressed that it worked as well as it did. They come out with a truck and use a chemical solution. It doesn't hurt the plants or anything, and they spray about every two weeks. I could definitely tell when it was wearing off, but we just bought this house two years ago. It was so bad in the backyard—it was like the fog with mosquitoes. So, this has really worked well. This is not a luxury—this is a necessity, if we want to go out in our backyard. Honestly, we would spray ourselves with mosquito repellent, and it didn't work that great. Plus, I don't want to put all those chemicals on us all the time. I would say they're an A+ grade company.”
“They did a fantastic job. What I like about Mosquito Squad is their product works. This will be our fourth year using them. I need their services because we live in Chicago—we're the capital of Mosquitoville. I would give them an A+ grade.”
“We used Mosquito Squad last year. I don't have any problems with what they did. In fact, we reenlisted them this year—last year was an exceptionally bad year for mosquitoes. We've been happy with them so far. When they come out, they spray the yard for me. Their customer service and the quality of the work they do is good. For their work last year, I would rate them as an A+.”
“I think Mosquito Squad is awesome. They show up when they say they're going to show up, and the product seems to work the way they advertise it to work. We just started with them last year, and we plan to use them in the coming season. We noticed the treatments were effective pretty much immediately. They are an A-grade company.”
“Mosquito Squad is excellent. They are timely and thorough. I have been using them for two years. I don't know if they use pet friendly or organic treatments, but I would give them an A rating. They are an excellent service and a very good company to work with.”
“They did some work for me last year. I re-signed with them again this year. I like that they show up when they say they're going to show up, their stuff is safe for pets and kids, and it works. They do mosquito treatment for me. The reason I need their services is I live in the woods, and I have several water features in my backyard. It has made my outdoor living easier. I would give them an A+.”
“What I like about Mosquito Squad's services is it works, and they come when they say they're going to come. I think they service me every 21 days. This will be my third season using them. I do not generally have the same technician each time, and I often don't even see them when they come. I would give them an A+ because I haven't had any problems with them.”
“Mosquito Squad comes out when they say they are going to come, and they call before they are going to come, so that is nice. They spray a mosquito barrier around my yard. It is pretty prompt and quick. They are only here for a few minutes. I have been using them for probably three years. I keep using them because I live in a wooded lot, and it really does help keep the mosquitoes down. It does what it says it's going to do—they're an A+.”
“This is the second full year I've had Mosquito Squad. I had them the previous year just for a couple of spot sprays. I've been very happy with them. I like that they come and ring the doorbell to let you know they're here. So if I'm home, I know they're here. They put out little signs so you know and don't let your dog or kids out. The product seems to work. I live in a wooded area with a creek in the back, and before, I would get attacked by mosquitoes. I couldn't even go out in the backyard without having mosquito repellent on. Not even the regular kind, I had to have extra strength kind on me. Now I can go outside without having to put anything on myself. So, that's the main reason why I keep doing it. I would give them an A+.”
“They are such nice folks. They do what they say they're going to do. Last year was my first time using them, and I signed up for this year. I decided to go with them over other companies because my son had them the previous year and said they did what they were supposed to do. So, I tried them, and he was right. They did exactly what they said, they show up on time, and they're very good. I would give them an A+ grade, for sure.”
“Mosquito Squad sprayed the yard for me. I like that we don't have mosquitoes. I have not been home when the workers are here. I chose them from the neighbors' recommendation, and I would use them again. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“So far, they show up on time, when they say they're going to show up, and the processes that they've done to the lawn have helped with the mosquitoes and ticks. I've never met the workers who have done work for me because they've done it when I was gone. But as far as the phone call, they're very professional and polite. We would definitely continue using them. They're an A+.”
“We are very happy with Mosquito Squad and that is why we continue with their service. They get in and do their job. I referred them to all of my neighbors. They were just here the other day—they come to my house and then go to my neighbors. I just like their service. The last time they came out, they did the spraying. I really don't pay attention to the workers. They just knock on the door and hand me my receipt. Then they just go about their business, because we have a big yard. There are no areas that they need to improve on. I am very happy with them. They're an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad took care of my mosquitoes, as far as I know. The workers were good. They do everything outside. They spray, and they go about their business, so I don't think there is any area of the service they can improve on. I think they are fine—an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad doesn't use creepy chemicals. It is a plant-based system that they use. They have good customer service. Last year was the first time that we used them. I heard about them from a neighbor, and I would give them an A+.”
“We were having mosquitoes in the back yard. They sprayed, and it seemed to work. The workers were pleasant, and they have great communication through e-mail. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“Mosquito Squad is always good. They sprayed the yard for us. The workers are very good, and I would give them an A+.”
“So far, my experience with Mosquito Squad has been good. They are doing a great job. They came here maybe a month ago. They sprayed around the back and front yard. They finished their work. So far, we have no complaints. One thing that stands out about their service is that sometimes when they come here, I'm not home, but I know they do a good job. When they finish, they let us know and then they leave. They also let us know they are here, too. I think they're an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad helped me. I didn't get one mosquito bite all of last year, so I think I have to say they helped. I'm glad I hired them—they were good. I don't know how many treatments it took to get the desired effect. I have them come out every three weeks. They came, they left a note to say that they sprayed, and that was it. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“Mosquito Squad's customer service was great. When they come out, they have a package series of sprays for the whole summer—spring through fall. So, we purchased that package to control the mosquitoes and other bugs for the summer. This was not our first year using them—we had used them in the past one other time. I would say they are an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad sprayed for mosquitoes for us. They made my backyard more livable. The workers are very good. The product worked—we are happy with it and the personnel. Everything is fine. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“It's been effective service. We have a pretty big property, and they've really knocked down the mosquito issues where we had a lot of problems before. We have been using Mosquito Squad for three or four years. I think I first heard about their service through word-of-mouth. The guys that come out and do the application are pretty conscientious, making sure dogs aren't around and that there is signage. They make sure they let us know that they've done it and to keep the dogs off for a while. I would say they're an A+ company.”
“My experience with Mosquito Squad was positive—now, I can go outside. They spray my property for mosquitoes. They do a great job with the time frame in which they finish the work. I heard about their service from a neighbor. I have been using them three or four years now. They are stand-up guys. I would like other homeowners to know about and try their service. They're an A+.”
“Mosquito Squad was able to help me, and it works. They didn't install anything—they just come and spray. I use them on a schedule, and I would give them an A+ grade.”
“The service worked. They sprayed the yard to keep the mosquitoes away for me. They spray every four to five weeks. I chose the company over other companies because they were the only ones I heard of that did it. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“Things have been good. Mosquito Squad is prompt and timely with the e-mail notifications for when they have to be here and when they have to reschedule. The billing has been no problem, and they are very easy to work with. I have been using them for a couple of years. They manually spray out in the yard. They have a truck out front and then they come through. I think they wear special clothes. There is definitely been a noticeable reduction of mosquitoes. I would give them an A+ rating to this point.”
“Mosquito Squad Chicago creates a barrier around your yard, and the mosquitoes won't cross it. It is really quite amazing. Their service is outstanding, and they are very responsive. It's beyond belief, to be honest.”
“I had a fabulous experience. I live in the middle of the woods, and it works incredibly. I don't have to worry about mosquitoes anymore. I'd say an A+ grade for them.”
“Mosquito Squad Chicago is a great company, and I'm thrilled about their product because my daughter is allergic to mosquito bites. The employees are very polite and courteous, and they make sure they cover everything. I'm very happy.”
“They do a fantastic job. Our next-door neighbor hired them, and I was so impressed that I contacted them. A+.”
“Mosquito Squad Chicago is very communicative, they are responsive if you call with questions, they are respectful when they come on your property, and they are just really good. They service us for mosquitoes. This is our third season using them. I would give them an A+ rating. There was one time when there was a big rainstorm, and I called them—they said, 'No problem' and came out the next time they thought it would be dry and reapplied. They were extremely responsive, and I feel they have been absolutely excellent.”
“I like everything about Mosquito Squad Chicago's services. We just use them for mosquitoes. They're excellent. I have been using them for four years. The treatment they use is pretty safe—we can have our pets out there. They tell us to stay away for about a half hour or an hour. They're on time—you call, and they come right away. I would give them an A+ grade. They're perfect.”
“What I like about their service is that it works. That's the most important thing. I think this is my third season using their service, and they're always there when they're supposed to be there. I think they treat me every three weeks, and if I have a party or special occasion, they'll come out for an extra spray. I initially found out about their services through a friend. They use a pet-friendly treatment—it's just a half hour, and then pets are free to go out on the grass at any time. I think they are fantastic.”
“I highly recommend Mosquito Squad Chicago. What I liked so much about them was that their product is very effective and that they are very professional in letting me know when they'll be working in my yard. I like their manner in the way they deal with me. I would grade them A+.”
“They were wonderful. What made my experience with them positive was that I could go out on my deck and not get bitten by a mosquito, and my summer was wonderful. The workers were great. They were always here, they always sprayed everything, and they called ahead of time when they were coming to let me know so I could get the dogs out and back in. They were very polite, very nice, and they did their job. I would give them an A+ grade.”
“We love Mosquito Squad Chicago. They are great people. They give us a treatment for six months, and we keep renewing with them every year. They are courteous, professional, and very accommodating to the customer. If I ask them to spray in certain places, they will spray in certain places, even if it isn't part of the thing. They always call, and they do a good job. We'd give them tens across the board—they are that good.”
“What has made my experience with them extremely positive is that I've used them two years in a row now, and I've had no bugs—nothing. They do mosquito spray for me, and I'm not shut inside in the summer now—I can have parties and enjoy my yard and deck. The workers are very nice, smart, cordial, and polite. If rain comes after they've sprayed, they come right back and spray again. They make sure that the customer is the one that's taken care of. They're always friendly and helpful, and they always do what they're supposed to do. I'd give them an A+.”
“I have been using Mosquito Squad Chicago for about three years now. They are very efficient and Johnny-on-the-spot to come out for private parties. They spray to keep the mosquitoes at bay, and their product worked well. I love the fact that I don't have any mosquitoes during the year. I have referred them to other people. The workers are pretty good. What makes them good is their efficiency, accuracy, readiness, and courtesy. They do a pretty good job, and right now, I am pleased. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“I thought Mosquito Squad Chicago did a good job. I was skeptical at first about whether or not it would actually help, because we are very close to a pretty wooded area, and it's done a fabulous job. They spray the entire premises outside for mosquitoes and whatever else that stuff kills. They claim it kills ticks as well. I would give them an A+ rating.”
“I have been using their service for eight years, and I have never had a problem. Their service helps to keep the mosquitoes from ruining your outside life, and they use a plant-based product. The technicians are all very polite and very knowledgeable. I do not generally get the same technician—there are a few different ones, but their customer service is great. I would rate them an A+.”
