Limbwalker Vs Mosquito Squad: How Do the Two Companies Compare?

Nothing quite sucks the fun out of some good, quality time outside like the mosquito. Not only are mosquito bites annoying but because these pests can actually carry and transmit deadly diseases, they can also be worrisome. 

Of course, nobody really feels like slathering themselves in bug spray just to step outside in their own backyard. For that reason, you might be looking for effective solutions to stop mosquitoes from being in the yard.

One of the most effective solutions is professional mosquito control.

If you’ve started the research on mosquito companies in Louisville, then you know you have options. But what is the best mosquito company?

We want you to be able to make a smart buying decision, which is why we’re comparing two popular options: Limbwalker vs. Mosquito Squad. Before making your investment, it’s important to understand what you’re getting and there are some differences between our two companies.

Who is Mosquito Squad of Louisville?

Mosquito Squad is a name that you’ve likely heard before because they are a national franchise. Mosquito Squad has more than 200 locations with more on the way. In fact, they’ve actually moved into the international space, also helping to get rid of mosquitoes in other countries.

Mosquitoes are the earth’s deadliest creature, so this is an effort that we applaud. It’s been reported that the mosquito is responsible for more than one million deaths each year, which is largely in other parts of the world (due to its ability to spread malaria). 

Mosquito Squad offers their traditional Mosquito Barrier Treatment as well as an automatic misting system option.

Mosquito Squad of Louisville is one of your local options for mosquito control. But there are a few differences between their company and ours.

How Does Mosquito Squad Compare to Limbwalker?

As you probably guessed, one of the big differences between Mosquito Squad and Limbwalker is that we are a locally owned and operated company here in Louisville and we are not a national franchise.

In general, we are highly focused on getting to know the individual properties (and property owners) who become our clients.

As our company name suggests, we started our company with tree work. Limbwalker got its start in 2004 as a group of award-winning tree climbers. We are a group that loves trees and the outdoors—and we’ve learned that we love helping Louisville homeowners find as much enjoyment in the outdoors as we do.

That’s actually what led us to diversify and start offering both lawn care and mosquito control as well. We know that people cannot get outside and enjoy their properties to the fullest when they are constantly threatened by these unwanted pests.

Still, homeowners appreciate that we can help them with other areas of their property (rather than having multiple companies for multiple services). Since we also handle tree care and lawn care, we can offer clients a comprehensive approach to caring for their Louisville property.

Get Rid of Mosquitoes with Professional Control

We know that in addition to considering professional control services some homeowners also think about a DIY approach. As you read about the different mosquito companies in Lousiville, you might be thinking this is something that you could just do on your own.

But this is not something that we would recommend.

To sum it up quickly, a DIY approach to mosquitoes is never going to be able to stand up to what a professional can offer. It typically means the use of subpar products and equipment, a learning curve to figure things out, and an investment of time and money that might be heftier than you anticipated.

Your best approach to getting rid of mosquitoes is with professional mosquito control. With a pest as dangerous and pesky as the mosquito, it’s simply not worth anything less.


Your Wise Choice in Mosquito Companies in Louisville

At the end of the day, this is your happiness that we’re talking about. We know that mosquitoes can easily ruin a good time outside. That’s why we really care that you are happy with your results. 

We advise putting time into researching your options. We have always been transparent in saying that we aren’t your only choice and when push comes to shove, we want you to be happy and confident that you’ve made the best decision for your property.

While it might feel like a lot of work to look into your options, it’s worth it to know that you’re going to be happy in the end. And as we said at the start, with a pest as potentially dangerous as the mosquito, you want to feel confident that you are well protected.


When you make a wise choice, you can get rid of mosquitoes and get back to enjoying your yard.
