Ticks are nasty creatures that are hard to get rid of, and their bites aren’t painful, so they usually go undetected while they’re spreading. In 2014 in Massachusetts only, there were at least 3,600 confirmed cases and 1,600 probable cases of Lyme disease. This places Massachusetts as the state with the highest number of Lyme Disease cases. Don’t risk letting your children, other family members, or pets get sick. Reach out to Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts and a specialist will explain our treatment options in detail and help provide a quote over the phone. We can even give you some tips that help reduce the number of ticks you have before we head over to apply a treatment.
The first step in our tick treatment is a barrier spray. We send a team to your home who uses backpack mist blowers to spray around the exterior of your yard, creating a border that pests won’t cross. Our team also sprays common places where ticks gather, such as damp, cool areas like tall grass or woodpiles. The time-released, EPA-approved solution we use kills ticks instantly, plus it eliminates mosquitoes, gnats, flies, and fleas, and the spray keeps working for up to three weeks. Finally, we find tick and mosquito-breeding areas and treat or remove them. This helps reduce the number of young ticks that appear in your yard.
The barrier spray often takes less than an hour, and once we finish, the spray dries in 30 minutes or less, so your yard is ready for use in a short period. We can treat the yard while you’re not home, giving you the freedom to enjoy your time while we rid your yard of pests. After we finish, we leave a notice of completion on your door.
For optimal results, we suggest having us spray your yard every three weeks during tick season. Ask us about our discount packages where you save money by pre-paying for multiple sprays. Of course, you’re able to cancel at any time and receive a refund for the unused sprays.
The last step in the treatment process involves placing tick tubes in areas of your yard where mice gather. These biodegradable tick tubes contain insecticide-treated cotton, which mice take to create housing. The insecticide goes into the mice’s bodies, and then young ticks feed on the mice’s blood and the ticks die promptly.
We offer a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee because we want you to be completely happy with our work. Within three weeks of your barrier spray, we’ll give you a full refund or re-spray your yard at no cost if you’re not happy for any reason. Even if the re-spray doesn’t give you the results you’re looking for, we’ll still give you a 100-percent refund with no hassle.
