The school year has come to an end and that means more kids will be out playing in the yard for much of the day. Mosquito Squad of Columbia is the company to call to keep your yard free of mosquitoes and biting pests for the entire summer and beyond. We will come to your home and apply our barrier spray every three weeks and you don’t have to do anything except give us a call.
While most people associate high mosquito activity with the dusk hours, the Asian Tiger Mosquito is specifically a day biter. Not only is the Asian Tiger Mosquito a day biter, it also has a higher propensity for carrying debilitating diseases like West Nile Virus. Let us make sure you and your children are not on the dinner menu. The more time spent outdoors increases your likelihood of being bitten by mosquitoes. We can come to your home, inspect your yard, find the trouble areas and treat your yard so that mosquitoes will be an afterthought for you and your loved ones.
By removing standing water from your yard and applying our barrier spray, you will see a 90% decrease in mosquitoes at the very least. It takes a well trained professional to properly treat your home’s yard for mosquitoes and other biting and stinging pests. For this reason, we recommend leaving mosquito control in Columbia SC to us, the professionals. Your yard should be a place where you can go and relax and not worry about you and your kids being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Let us help you take your yard back for the entire summer!
We treat the exterior of your home
At Mosquito Squad of Columbia, we work on the spiders outside your home so they don’t nest. Our effective barrier spray treatment is applied at regular intervals throughout the summer to eliminate spiders on contact and to keep spiders away throughout the season. We spray your home every 21 days with our safe and effective barrier spray to rid the outside of your home from spiders that are both pesky and can be very dangerous.
Here in the Midlands area, we find this to be a particular problem around our lakes. We get calls about Lake Murray spider problems, Lake Marion spider problems, Lake Katherine spider problems and Wateree Lake spider problems. Some of these lakefront homes have spider webs literally covering their homes.

South Carolina spiders
In South Carolina, we have many poisonous and also many pesky spiders. In addition to our state spider – the brown wolf spider, we have a number of poisonous spiders including the brown recluse spider, the brown widow spider, and the northern as well as southern black widow.
We are absolutely devastated by the floods in and around our beloved city. We hope all of our Columbia area neighbors get the help and protection they need to get through this devastating flood. When we all wade out of this flood, we are here to provide follow up mosquito repellent applications. We will do everything we can to take care of our own as quickly as we can.
This catastrophic, 1,000-year rain event has set records all across South Carolina, and there are still nearly 100 people here in Columbia still trapped in their homes. We look forward to getting through this together and send our deepest condolences to those who have perished due to this incredibly damaging flood.
Mosquito Squad of Columbia will be here for all our current customers as well and will be on top of our tasks as soon as it is possible. You can count on us.

West Nile virus cases are beginning to show up all around us. This is not unusual, as the virus tends to spike in August, September and October. However, with the record heat we have experienced, we may be looking at the real possibility of an active mosquito population all the way up until Christmas. Mosquito Squad of Columbia has the perfect, and most importantly, affordable solution to keeping your yard mosquito free throughout the remaining months where mosquitoes are present.
Our 3 spray package for $219 will provide you and your family with complete mosquito protection for nearly 62 days. Mosquito Squad of Columbia can ensure your cookouts, football tailgating parties, and all your social gatherings outdoors will go off without those pesky biting and stinging insects that may otherwise ruin your event.
Not only can mosquitoes ruin your outdoor gatherings this fall, but they can also transmit nasty diseases such as West Nile virus. According to a recent article published by the Dekalb County environmental health division, “in one week, the number of mosquito samples that tested positive as carriers (for West Nile virus) nearly doubled from 37 to 70. The virus tends to spike in August, September and October.” West Nile virus is especially dangerous to the extremely young and the elderly. Its symptoms can range from the mild to the lethal and have a quick onset after being infected. Leave it to the professionals of Mosquito Squad of Columbia to ensure you and your family aren’t coming into contact with disease carrying mosquitoes in your own yard.
The cicada killer wasp is quite possibly one of the largest wasps you have ever seen. These monstrous wasps are, as their name implies, cicada killers. They are identifiable by their enormous size, black and yellow striping upon their backs, and their unmistakably loud buzzing sound made by their enormous wings. They dig underground burrows and you’ll know if they’re in your yard nearly immediately. These behemoths swarm the area surrounding their underground burrow, but are actually not as aggressive as other wasps and hornets.
The female cicada killer wasp is capable of stinging, whereas the male is not. Females have significant stingers which they plunge into cicadas to inject venom that paralyzes them. Without doubt, their stings are extremely painful to humans. The buzzing noise that these wasps make and the warning colors on their wings and bodies intimidate and discourage would be predators. The males are extremely territorial, yet they cannot sting. While the males will harass humans and animals near their burrow, and you now know they cannot sting, you’re more than likely going to forget that fact when twenty to thirty gigantic wasps are surrounding you.
The cicada killer wasp will choose its place to burrow very carefully. A well drained, light textured soil in full sunlight is what they prefer most. Unfortunately, these areas tend to be places such as sidewalk or patio edges, flower beds, gardens and even your front or back yard. Another negative impact of the cicada killer wasp is that skunks will often take advantage of an empty cicada killer wasp burrow and use it as their own. When confronted by these monstrous wasps, please leave their removal to the professionals, Mosquito Squad of Columbia.
When it comes to ensuring your yard is mosquito free, Mosquito Squad of Columbia is constantly searching for the newest and best in the mosquito control field. Updates in technology now allow for a mosquito misting system at your home that is completely made for both the tech savvy and the not so tech savvy. MistAway’s mosquito misting technology is autonomous and will make sure your yard is completely free of mosquitoes.
MistAway has the technology that will allow you to control what times your yard is sprayed, and it’s completely customizable. You can even control sprays from your smartphone through the iMistAway app in the app store. Your system can have set times of day when it performs a spray, but if mosquito activity is higher than normal you can easily activate a manual spray at any time.
Not only will you not have to worry about contacting anyone to come out to your yard, with exception of refilling your mosquito repellent solution reservoir, but you have complete control over the system and can utilize it whenever you prefer. Perhaps you’re on your way to your home or beach home and want to make sure your yard is completely mosquito free by the time you get there. In that case, simply activate the device from your smartphone (no matter how far away from home you are) and your misting system will apply a spray right then and there and you will arrive to a mosquito free yard. Even if you have an existing misting system, we can retrofit your system to keep up with the newest mosquito misting system technology. Or, if you have broken fixtures, or need your tank refilled we can handle all of these situations as well.
