Dog ticks and deer ticks are a big problem in this state, spreading diseases that affect both people and pets. Over-the-counter solutions often don’t work, as ticks rapidly multiple and hide in hard-to-reach areas. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your property is protected against ticks with a professional treatment from Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. We use a multi-step process that kills adult and baby ticks and focuses on keeping them out of your yard for good. If you have ticks in your yard now, we have some helpful tips that make your yard less vulnerable against these pests. Once you’re ready to take a step toward a nearly pest-free yard, contact us for an in-person yard evaluation or call us for an over-the-phone quote.
Any tick treatment ordered from the Mosquito Squad is backed by a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee. Our treatment should eliminate nearly 100 percent of ticks, and if it doesn’t we’ll respray the yard or give you a refund. If the respray doesn’t get rid of 85-90 percent of ticks, we’ll issue a refund with no hassle. That’s how confident we are in our work.
If you’re looking for a way to kill ticks on your property instantly, a traditional barrier spray is the solution. A licensed team of applicators visits your home with backpack mist blowers, which are used to apply an EPA-approved, time-released solution to the exterior of your yard and damp, cool places where ticks gather, such as near woodpiles or around tree lines. The result of the barrier spray is an 85 to 90 percent reduction in ticks and a big drop in other pests, such as mosquitoes, spiders, flies, and gnats.
For a treatment that repels pests instead of killing them, request an all-natural barrier spray. We’ll use our in-house tick repellent, which we refine annually for superior results. An organic barrier spray repels 65 to 80 percent of ticks and keeps mosquitoes, certain ants, fleas, and other pests out of your yard. This is a gentler treatment that lasts for up to two weeks before another spray is required.
Our team locates mosquito and tick-breeding areas and then treats or removes them. This helps reduce the young tick population temporarily, but a long-term solution is needed. That’s why we place tick tubes in your yard to draw mice’s attention. Inside each biodegradable tick tube is insecticide-treated cotton, which mice gather to build a shelter. As the mice interact with the cotton, the insecticide goes into their blood. Mice are the most common feeding target for nymph ticks, and the ticks die quickly as they try to feed on the mice’s blood.
