Mosquito Seekers: Our Story
We are an independent and family-owned pest control company located on the South Shore of Long Island. Our mission is to implement strategies to ensure our customers have yards that are comfortable and free from outdoor biting insects. Nothing can be more annoying than having an outdoor get together with guests bitten up from mosquitos. Before we started many of our customers could not even sit outside in their yards without coming back in with mosquito bites.
How It Began
In the Summer of 2013, Richard and Sarah Gordon of Lawrence, NY recognized the need for a company that solely specialized in addressing the serious problems homeowners on the South Shore of Long Island had with mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, no-see-ums, and flies. Although there were many pest control companies and gardeners that tried to address the mosquito problem, the expertise specifically in this field was lacking. Mosquito Seekers was created with the specific goal of specializing in addressing this problem. A New York State board-certified Entomologist was hired as a consultant to help formulate the most effective and safe approach for mosquito and outdoor flying pest control. Mosquito Seekers was launched in the spring of 2014 after months of preparation and hard work identifying a clear business plan of action.
Mosquitos are our business. Our focus is to solve your mosquito, tick, and gnat problem to create a comfortable outdoor experience. Every property is different and has with it different reasons for outdoor pest infestation. We create a treatment plan specifically designed to address the nuances of each property. The source of a yard mosquito infestation could be caused by numerous factors we excel in identifying them and addressing them. We are proud members of the New York Pest management association and continue to update our formulation keeping tabs of all new products introduced into the marketplace.
