Lyme Disease has been on the rise recently, especially in Massachusetts, which poses a danger to your family and pets. Ticks are one of the most common pests carrying this disease, along with many other diseases. Don’t take any chances when it comes to your family’s health and order a treatment from Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. We use a proven two-step tick control process that eliminates up to 90 percent of ticks and helps control other pests. If you live in one of the many cities we serve, reach out to us over the phone to schedule an appointment, ask questions, or receive a quote.
Our treatment eliminates 85 to 90 percent of ticks, and you’ll see a huge drop in mosquitoes, gnats, flies, and fleas, too. We begin with a barrier spray. A team visits your yard and uses backpack mist blowers to spray the exterior of your yard and damp, cool areas where ticks tend to congregate. The spray instantly kills adult ticks, and it’s time-released, so it provides non-stop protection for three weeks.
If you have a normal-size yard, the spray process shouldn’t take longer than an hour. Once the spray dries within about 30 minutes, your yard is ready to enjoy. After we finish spraying, we find and remove or treat all tick and mosquito-breeding areas to reduce the population of young pests.
We also offer an organic barrier spray, using an in-house, all-natural repellent. The solution contains essential oils that give off a scent that repels 65 to 80 percent of ticks for up to two weeks. Like our traditional spray, the organic solution also repels other pests, including spiders and certain types of ants. The all-natural barrier spray leaves a moderate botanical scent after the treatment, but the smell goes away completely within 24 hours.
The next step is to place tick tubes around your yard. We use biodegradable tick tubes made of cardboard, so they won’t harm the environment. Providing six months of protection, the tick tubes contain insecticide-treated cotton, which mice gather for housing. The insecticide gets into the mice’s bloodstream, and when young ticks bite the mice, they’re killed quickly. Adult female ticks can lay up to 3,000 eggs at once, and the tick tubes help drastically reduce the number of young ticks in your yard.
We offer multiple spray packages that save you money. By pre-paying for a set number of barrier sprays, you’ll receive a discounted price. You’re always welcome to cancel the package, and you’ll get a full refund for the unused sprays. We also create custom packages to meet your needs.
The Mosquito Squad satisfaction guarantee offers peace of mind, as you’re entitled to a free respray or a full refund if you’re not happy with your barrier spray. Even if the respray isn’t satisfactory, we’ll give you a complete refund with no questions or hassle.
