Voted Connecticut's Scariest Haunted House by the Norwich Bulletin, The Dark Manor fills visitors with terror and keeps hearts pounding throughout two floors of haunted rooms, a spooky cemetery, and a haunted village.

After surviving the manor's mind-bending set pieces and horrifyingly neglectful housekeeping, adventurers must wander through the cemetery and village. Amid the graveyard's tombstones roams a chainsaw-wielding freak offering free haircuts, and the denizens of the haunted village lurk amid shadows as masked horrors seek to startle the souls out of passersby.

Mosquito Squad of Rhode Island's trusty technicians will assess a backyard or front yard before applying a defensive shield with the barrier spray. This process uses fogging machines to spray an insecticide—a nontoxic product registered with the Environmental Protection Agency—that immediately deters and kills adult mosquitoes and ticks that enter the yard. Around 30 minutes after the treatment is sprayed, humans and pets can safely return to the yard without fearing insect-spread diseases such as West Nile virus, equine encephalitis, Lyme disease, and goo-hands. The treatment typically lasts around 21 days.
