Get rid of ticks fast with a treatment from Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. These resilient pests carry diseases that are harmful to your family and pets. Elderly people and young children have a greater chance of getting seriously ill, as they have weaker immune systems. Bug sprays and lotions that are available over the counter are an ineffective solution that doesn’t address the root problem. Our treatments eliminate tick eggs and young and mature ticks, providing a drastic reduction in the number of ticks at your home.
Our barrier spray is our most popular method for mosquito elimination, and it’s highly effective against ticks, too. This quick treatment instantly kills ticks on contact and repels these pests for up to three weeks. We use backpack mist blowers to apply an EPA-approved solution in common tick and mosquito-gathering areas, and then we spray around the perimeter of your yard. Our barrier spray reduces the tick population in your yard by 85-90 percent, and the solution dries in about a half-hour so you can quickly return to your yard.
We also offer an ecofriendly barrier spray, where we use an in-house, all-natural spray that reduces ticks by 65-80 percent and lasts for two weeks. We create this repellent by using a surfactant and essential oils. After application, there’s a moderate botanical scent, which some clients report as a pleasant smell, that goes away in more than 24 hours.
For optimal results, we suggest that you schedule repeated treatments every two to three weeks, depending on whether you go with an all-natural or traditional spray. We offer spray packages, where you pre-pay for a certain number of treatments at a lowered price.
We understand that you’re busy, which is why we offer the option of treating your yard while you’re not home. Once we finish the treatment, our team places a notice of completion on your front door, so you know when we stopped by.
After the barrier spray, we place tick tubes in strategically selected locations, designed to provide additional protection against young ticks. These biodegradable tubes contain cotton treated with insecticide. Mice are drawn to the cotton, as they use it to build housing, and mice are the most common target of ticks looking to feed. Once ticks bite the mice, they’re eliminated quickly. We suggest having us replace the tick tubes every six months.
The Mosquito Squad guarantee promises that our traditional tick treatment reduces the number of ticks in your yard by 85-90 percent or else we’ll give you a complete refund. You also have the option of requesting a free respray, and you can still request a refund afterward if the results aren’t satisfactory.
