Not only are ticks annoying, they're also dangerous. They carry diseases, including ehrlichiosis and Lyme disease, and can get pets and people really sick. Because tick bites don't itch or hurt, these pests often go undetected until you have a big problem on your hands. And if you have pets, they often attract ticks when going outside and then bring them into your house. When you need a proven solution for ticks, request a treatment from the Mosquito Squad. Through strategically placed tick tubes and a spray treatment, we can rid your yard of mature ticks and keep them away for up to three weeks.

We use a combination of tick treatments to clear your yard of these worrisome pests. Most people will see a 90-95 percent drop in ticks and mosquitoes after a treatment, and the results come fast. The first step in the process is a barrier spray. Licensed applicators spray an EPA-approved solution in common areas where ticks appear. The solution is time released, so after it immediately kills mature ticks, it continues to eliminate them. This step doesn't take long; for the average-size yard, we should be done within twenty minutes.
The second step is putting tick tubes throughout the yard. Our team uses their knowledge and experience to strategically place these tubes in the most effective locations. The tubes contain treated cotton, and they utilize the fact that ticks like to feed on mice's blood to eliminate the pests. Mice are drawn to the cotton, which they like to use for shelter. The ticks attack the mice, and the solution on the cotton quickly kills the ticks.
To ensure that ticks and other pests stay away from your home, we remove or treat all mosquito and tick breeding areas on your property.
We don't want you to have to take time off from work or sacrifice your weekend to stay at home while we work. Our team can treat the yard while you're away and then leave a notice of completion at your door.
We can also use our in-house, natural solution to spray your yard. Containing only essential oils and a surfactant, this solution delivers big results, getting rid of 65 to 80 percent of ticks and mosquitos for up to 2 weeks. The solution works by emitting scents that pests can detect and cause them to avoid your home. Although the solution continues giving off a smell that they can detect for up to 14 days, the aroma quickly fades from the human nose. The moderate botanical smell turns into a faint aroma within a few hours. Within one day of the spray, the smell should go away completely.
