Ticks are notoriously hard to get rid of, as they multiply extremely fast and are hard to see. One female tick is capable of laying thousands of eggs at once, which means that if you don’t handle an infestation quickly, you’re going to have a major problem on your hands. Mosquito Squad’s developed an innovative tick treatment that combines the power of our barrier spray option with tick tubes. The beauty of this system is that it kills both young and adult ticks, making it nearly impossible for an infestation to develop.

After our traditional barrier spray, you’ll see up to an 85 percent drop in ticks, plus you’ll notice a huge decrease in other pests, including flies and mosquitoes. Our traditional barrier spray lasts for up to 3 weeks, depending on weather conditions. This treatment kills ticks on contact, and it takes less than 30 minutes to spray a regular-size yard. Our team is even able to work while you’re away from home, so you don’t have to give up your time and wait for our arrival. We’ll leave a notice of completion, detailing when and what we did. You only need to wait 30 minutes once the spray’s finished before you’re free to enjoy your yard.
Some people favor our organic, eco-friendly barrier spray. It’s a gentler option that repels about 80 to 85 percent of ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, and other pests. Made using essential oils, our in-house organic repellent works for up to 2 weeks before requiring another treatment. Many customers report a subtle botanical aroma after a treatment, but most people claim that’s it’s actually a pleasant fragrance.
Our tick spray treatment eliminates adult ticks, however, there’s still the issue of young ticks that may repopulate and create another infestation. One female adult tick can lay thousands of eggs, so it’s very important to control the young tick population. To accomplish this, we set down biodegradable tick tubes around your property, taking care to put them in locations that are effective and inconspicuous, so they won’t bother anyone in the house.
The tubes contain cotton with insecticide, and mice like to take the cotton for housing. Once they touch the cotton, the insecticide enters their bloodstream, transforming them into moving pest exterminators. Nymph ticks love to feed on mice, and when they bite the mice and absorb the insecticide, they’re promptly eliminated. Our tick tubes last for up to six months before requiring replacement, and they offer a cumulative effect, so you’ll notice better and better results as the months go by.
