Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts serves many cities and offers high-quality tick control solutions that can eliminate 90 percent or more of these annoying pests. Ticks are a major problem in Massachusetts, and they carry diseases that cause serious illness—or even death. Make sure your family is safe and your yard is ready to enjoy by having us apply our two-step tick control treatment this summer. If you’re still debating on whether you should order a treatment, we offer a few free tips that can help you reduce your tick population.
Our tick control treatment eliminates adult ticks and young ticks, so you notice an instant tick reduction and won’t see these pests return. First, we apply a barrier spray, which kills 85-90 percent of ticks. This process involves using backpack mist blowers to apply an EPA-approved spray around the exterior of your yard and on tick-gathering areas, such as tall, damp grass, woodpiles, and the bottom of fences and walls. We use a time-released solution that instantly kills ticks, mosquitoes, flies, and fleas, but also continues working for up to three weeks.
If you opt for our all-natural barrier spray, the results last for up to two weeks and you’ll see a 65-80 percent drop in the number of ticks. The spray we use also helps control gnats, spiders, and certain types of ants. Our in-house organic spray is made with essential oils for a more gentle treatment that repels pests instead of aiming to kill them. The spray works by giving off scents that ticks and mosquitoes avoid, but you won’t be able to smell the spray’s botanical scent within twenty-four hours of the treatment.
After the barrier spray, our team searches your yard for tick and mosquito breeding locations. We treat or remove these nesting areas, reducing the number of young ticks and mosquitoes that appear in your yard.
Tick tubes are the final step in the treatment process and offer many benefits:
• Six months of protection against nymph (young) ticks.
• Biodegradable tick tubes won’t harm the environment.
Our team places the tick tubes in inconspicuous locations that won’t bother you or your pets. The cardboard tubes contain insecticide-treated cotton, which lures mice that use the cotton for housing. Nymph ticks—small ticks that are hard to get rid of—feed on the mice’s blood and are killed after absorbing the insecticide.
Our team has years of experience eliminating mosquitoes and ticks, and we back our work with a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee. Contact us within three weeks of your traditional barrier spray, or two weeks if you order an organic spray, and we’ll respray your home at no charge or give you a complete refund. If you’re not happy with the respray, we’ll give you a 100 percent refund with no hassle or questions. For more information about our policy, feel free to give us a call.
