Maione Landscapes

2021 Mosquito & Tick Control Program Service Agreement


The following is the level of service that the client will receive from Maione Landscapes. Should these conditions not be met, Maione Landscapes will seek to resolve the discrepancy immediately to meet the conditions of the agreement.


Scope of Work: Maione Landscapes LLC, hereinafter referred to as “we / our”, will furnish all equipment, labor, and materials required to perform Mosquito & Tick Control Service as outlined below:


Contract Period: This agreement is valid from the time it is signed by the client until 12/31/2021.


Termination of the Contract: Termination by client prior to the end of the contract period will result in a termination fee of 2x the per visit application rate. 


Service Period: We will provide service from April through October, 7 total visits scheduled every 4-5 weeks.


Service Schedule: The day of service will be decided based upon your location in respect to our current schedule as well as weather conditions.


Service Reminders: The client will receive an email reminder the day before and the morning of the scheduled service.


Mosquito & Tick Control Service: A liquid pesticide application will be made around the perimeter of the property, targeting areas where mosquitoes and ticks live; damp and dark areas such as leaves on the ground, the underside of leaves up to 15’ in trees, shrubs and trees in the lawn and around the house. We do not treat the turf. Compared to the rarely distrubed areas listed above, a routinely used and maintained lawn will only host a small fraction of pests. We do not believe there is enough value to justify the additional chemicals in the most-used part of the landscape. A Massachusetts Dept. of Agriculture mandated lawn sign will be left in the lawn by the entrance to the driveway whenever herbicides are applied. Prior to leaving the property, we will email you a detailed application summary with relevant information documenting our service. 


The following is the expectation for the condition of the property on the client’s scheduled service day.


Parking Area: We tend to park on the street when possible, however busy streets often require us to pull into the driveway. The client should ensure that there is adequate room for a large truck and trailer on their scheduled service day.


Access: Client to ensure that all turf areas are accessible & gates are unlocked.

Lawn Condition: The lawn should be clean and clear of dog waste, toys, furniture, or any non-permanent objects on the scheduled service day. If we need to move such items to perform the service as outlined above, the time necessary will be billed to the client at a rate of $100/man hour, $15 minimum. Excessive dog waste will not be tolerated as we value our employees and will not subject them to those circumstances. We will issue a reminder upon the 1st instance. Upon the 2nd instance of excessive dog waste, we will end this service agreement.


Skipping Service: If the client needs to skip a service because of a temporary circumstance in the yard such as an outdoor party, another contractor, or anything that would interfere with our scheduled service, we will need at least 72 hours notice. Cancellations within 72 hours may be subject to a $50 skipped service charge.
