Massachusetts has the second highest number of Lyme disease cases—3,600 confirmed cases and 1,600 probable cases in 2014. Not only do ticks carry Lyme Disease, they also carry babesiosis and anaplasmosis. These diseases are dangerous for adults, the elderly, young kids, and pets, so it’s important that you take precautions during tick season. Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts offers a two-phase tick treatment that can get rid of 85-90 percent of ticks, and in some cases, customers see a tick reduction over 90 percent. We offer both traditional and organic options and multiple spray programs that can save you money. For more information, feel free to contact us via phone and chat with a Mosquito Squad specialist.
We spray an EPA-approved, time-released insecticide on areas where ticks and mosquitoes gather. Common spray areas including the base of walls and fences, the tree line, woodpiles, and tall grass. The next step in our tick control process is to spray the border of your yard, so the time-released microcapsules in the spray provides continued protection for up to three weeks. It should take our team less than an hour to spray an average-size yard, and the spray dries in a half-hour or less so that your yard is ready for use quickly.
We highly recommend getting barrier spray treatments every three weeks for the full length of tick season. Each additional treatment ensures that you’re receiving the best protection possible.
Our all-natural tick repellent spray repels 65-80 percent of ticks, plus gnats, flies, fleas, spiders, and mosquitoes, and lasts for two weeks, as it’s a gentler option. We make the solution using essential oils that repel pests rather than kill them. However, while the repellent works by giving off a smell, people won’t notice the spray’s botanical scent within 24 hours after application.
Barrier sprays immediately kill adult ticks, but for further protection, we also put down tick tubes to kill young ticks. Our tick tubes are biodegradable, so they won’t damage the environment. Inside each tube is cotton with insecticide, designed to lure mice that use the cotton for shelter production. Mice are the most common target for young nymph ticks to feed on, and once the ticks bite the mice, they’re eliminated quickly. To get the best possible results, we suggest having the tick tubes replaced every six months.
Mosquito Squad is known as America’s most trusted mosquito and tick control business, and we back up our work with a no questions asked money-back guarantee. Not happy with the way your barrier spray turned out? Call us and we’ll refund you right away or come to your house and respray the yard for free. If you ask us for a respray, you’re still able to get a 100 percent refund if the respray doesn’t offer the results you expected.
