Lyme Disease is a serious problem in Massachusetts, as 2014 data shows that the state had more than 3,600 reported cases and 1,600 probable cases—ranking 2nd in the nation for the total number of cases. In addition to Lyme disease, ticks also carry ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, and anaplasmosis, making these pests one of the most dangerous parasites in the state.

We bein our tick control process with a traditional barrier spray, which also gets rid of mosquitoes, gnats, flies, and fleas. Our skilled team visits your home and sprays an EPA-approved solution on your tree line, at the base of fences and walls, around woodpiles, and in tall grassy areas. After spraying these common tick-gathering areas, we spray around the yard’s exterior, creating a protective barrier that keeps pests out. The time-released spray we use continues working for three weeks before requiring re-treatment, and the spray gets rid of 85-90 percent of ticks.
The spray dries in 30 minutes or less, so you and the family can use the yard again quickly. Plus, we’re able to spray your yard while you’re away from home, so you don’t have to sit around waiting on us. If you’re not home, we leave a notice of completion on the door for your records.
If you’d rather select a more eco-friendly option, we can use our all-natural repellent for the spray. This organic repellent contains essential oils that repel pests—rather than kill them. The treatment works for up to two weeks and repels 65-80 percent of ticks, spiders, gnats, mosquitoes, fleas, and flies. While the pests smell the repellent for weeks, you’ll notice a botanical scent that becomes undetectable in 24 hours or less.
Tick tubes are an important part of the treatment process. Made with biodegradable materials, these tick tubes provide up to six months of protection. They’re designed to kill nymph ticks—small ticks that are extremely hard to spot. Our team places the tubes—containing insecticide-treated cotton—in places where mice gather. The mice take the cotton to build housing, and the nymph ticks feed on the mice’s blood, which kills the ticks quickly.
By combining a barrier spray with tick tubes, we’re able to get rid of over 90 percent of ticks in many cases.
The Mosquito Squad money-back guarantee lets you request a complete refund within three weeks of your barrier spray for any reason. You can also request that we respray the yard at no cost. Even after the free respray, you’re still entitled to a full refund for the original barrier spray if you’re not happy.
