It is no secret that bugs can ruin an outdoor event if they are not properly handled. Mosquito Squad, an outdoor pest control company founded in 2005, uses its barrier sprays and misting systems to rid the area of bugs like mosquitoes, flies and gnats. “The Barrier Spray Service is perfect for a one-time event because it will eliminate most of your flying annoyances for the specific day of the event,” says George Softly, part owner and COO of Mosquito Squad of South Jersey. Each Barrier Spray Service is designed specifically for each unique location. The automated Mist-Away Misting Systems are perfect for event spaces that plan to host multiple events. “Our services are people- and pet-friendly and only require a 60-minute drying time immediately after the application for a barrier spray to be safe for entry,” Softly says. Mosquito Squad also offers all-natural options for all their services. When planning an event, a walk-through of the location beforehand to eliminate breeding grounds is the best place to start. “For a complete solution, however,” Softly says, “we recommend you inspect the event space prior to treating if there has been confirmed activity that could affect the event in a negative way.”
The CDC defines close contact as within six feet or less, for 15 minutes or more with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. At gatherings of many kinds, contact tracing is used to trace the people that someone has come into contact with, before they learn that they have tested positive. This allows the people that the sick person came into contact with to be aware of the situation, and to make health-informed choices.
