Mosquitoes are a major source of frustration. Not only can their bites be itchy and painful, but you’re likely also aware that these pests can transmit deadly diseases like West Nile and Zika, making them a serious threat.
If you’re plagued with mosquitoes in your Memphis, TN backyard, then you want an effective solution. You want to be able to resume enjoying your yard instead of worrying every time that you’re outside.
That’s why you might be looking into professional mosquito control.
Of course, if you’ve started that search, then you know you have plenty of options. You might be wondering how a stand-alone mosquito service like Mosquito Shield of Memphis, TN stacks up to a company like Master Lawn, which also offers lawn care services.
In this article, we’re comparing these two options, side-by-side, so that you can determine which is best for you.
Mosquito Shield is a national franchise with branches across the country. The company got its start in 2001.
According to their website, they are located in more than 20 different states. Mosquito Shield of Memphis, TN is the local branch in our area.
As you would suspect, Mosquito Shield offers mosquito control. They also have a tick control program. But their services do not extend beyond these two options.
Without a doubt, the two biggest differences between Master Lawn and Mosquito Shield are the size and the service offerings of these two companies. Let’s look at how these two factors can impact your experience.
Although Mosquito Shield does have the local Memphis, TN location, the fact that it is part of a national franchise system means that this is a company used to dealing with thousands upon thousands of customers across the country. Most franchises have a prescribed way of doing things. They must follow the steps set forth by the franchise system.
But Master Lawn is an independently owned and operated local business. We only service homes in Memphis, TN and Northern Mississippi (not all around the country). This is important when it comes to truly knowing the area that you’re working in.
Another huge difference is that Mosquito Shield only focuses on mosquito and tick control. If you’re looking for other outdoor services like lawn care or plant health care, then you’ll have to hire another company. Now you have multiple companies on your property that have to work around each other.
On the flipside, Master Lawn can offer a full array of lawn care and plant health care services—and if you need work completed that is outside of our scope of services, then we also have a sister company, Michael Hatcher & Associates, who can complete this work, too. That means we can also tackle services like tree work, sodding, and even total design/build projects. Instead of creating scheduling nightmares with different professionals handling different aspects of your property’s care, it can all flow seamlessly. That means less hassles for you!
But you might be surprised to learn that these additional service offerings can also help in your battle against mosquitoes. Instead of just going in and spraying everything, we’re also able to correct issues that might be causing your mosquito problem in the first place. For instance, you might have a low area on your property where standing water is creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes. We can handle grading and drainage issues that might be at the root of your problem.
The bottom line is that you want to be able to enjoy your yard instead of feeling as though you’re under attack every time you step outside. For that reason, choosing a company that is going to offer effective mosquito control services is key. You want a service that truly knows the local area and can ensure that you get the results you’re after for your investment.
Of course, you also know that mosquitoes are not necessarily your only outdoor problem. You want to make sure that you’re fully covered with any property issues that may arise
That means you want a company that can address all of your concerns.
Instead of having to take the time to research lawn care or landscape companies (in addition to mosquito control companies), you want an all-in-one solution that takes care of everything. It means getting the most possible value out of your investment and eliminating hassles and headaches.
You also know that a more comprehensive solution like this will benefit you in the battle against mosquitoes, too. A company that can tackle any landscaping issues that may be contributing to your mosquito problem will truly be the “total solution” that you are looking for.
Make the wise choice to invest in a company that goes beyond “just spraying” and takes actual steps to make real change. By making this smart choice, you can finally win the battle against mosquitoes and get back to enjoying your property.
