If you’ve lived in Massachusetts for a while, you know that deer ticks and dog ticks are a big problem in the area. These pests carry babesiosis, anaplasmosis, Lyme disease, and many other diseases that could seriously harm you, your family, or your pets. Keep ticks out of your yard and protect your family with a treatment from Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. Our innovative tick control treatment kills nearly 100 percent of ticks and keeps them away from your yard. Find out more about our unique treatment methods by giving us a call or schedule a free yard evaluation and estimate.
When we treat your yard for ticks, you’ll see up to a 90 percent reduction in ticks and other pests. If you don’t see these results, we’ll revisit and spray your yard again. And if the respray doesn’t reduce the number of ticks in your home by 85-90 percent—or 65 to 80 percent if you choose an organic spray—we’ll give you a full refund without any hassle. If you have any questions, call us and ask for information on the Mosquito Squad satisfaction guarantee.
The quickest and most effective way to clear your yard of adult ticks is a traditional Mosquito Squad barrier spray. We send a team of applicators to your home with backpack mist blowers, designed to access out-of-reach areas. The team sprays an EPA-approved solution in places where ticks frequently gather, such as near woodpiles, at the bottom of fences, and in tall grass. We’ll also spray around your yard’s perimeter, so the time-released solution creates a barrier that blocks pests. Your barrier spray treatment can eliminate up to 90 percent of ticks for three weeks, and it reduces other pests, including mosquitoes and fleas.
If you’re looking for an option that simply repels pests, then our organic barrier spray is the answer. We make the solution ourselves using carefully selected essential oils that give off aromas that repel ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, certain types of ants, and many other pests; however, you won’t notice the botanical aroma within 24 hours of the spray. Our all-natural barrier spray repels approximately 80 percent of ticks and lasts for up to 14 days.
Eliminating nymph ticks is an important part of the treatment, which is why we seek and remove or treat all tick-breeding areas after completing the barrier spray. Finally, we search your yard for the best places to put tick tubes. Tick tubes are placed in inconspicuous areas that attract mice, as the cotton inside the tubes is treated with insecticide. The mice interact with the cotton, using it to build housing. This transforms the mice into mobile tick-killing machines. Nymph ticks predominately target mice for feeding. Upon biting the mice that have touched the cotton, the ticks are promptly eliminated.
