Take your yard back from ticks and other pests with a Mosquito Squad treatment. As the weather gets warmer, ticks come, and they multiply quickly. In a short time, a small group of ticks turns into a major infestation, and since their bites aren’t painful, they easily feed on pets in the yard. Find out more information about our two-step tick treatment below or get in touch with us for a price quote for your treatment. In the meantime, check out these six tips to help reduce how many ticks are in your yard prior to your professional treatment.
While we have a great track record with our customers and our treatments get great results, we still offer the Mosquito Squad guarantee. If your spray treatment doesn’t meet your standards, choose between an immediate refund or a yard respray. Even if you select the respray option, let us know if you’re still not satisfied and you’ll receive a complete refund.
In less than one hour, we can get rid of nearly 100 percent of adult ticks in your yard and results last for up to three weeks. Our traditional barrier spray is our most popular treatment option for ticks and mosquitoes. We start by spraying a time-released solution around the exterior of the yard to create a protective barrier that blocks pests. To complete the spray treatment, we locate areas where ticks gather, such as tall grass, along your tree line and near woodpiles.
We also provide an eco-friendly spray option. Choose an organic barrier spray, which uses an in-house tick repellent that consists of essential oils and a surfactant. This gentle treatment releases an aroma that ticks, mosquitoes, and many other pests don’t like and avoid. As this is a moderate treatment, it doesn’t aim to kill pests, and you can expect up to an 85 percent reduction in ticks that lasts for up to fourteen days.
Our tick spray reduces the number of mature ticks. However, a female tick may lay thousands of eggs at a single time, so we need to address nymph ticks for a complete protection solution. We like using tick tubes to eliminate young ticks. Our tick tubes are biodegradable, so you don’t have worry about gathering them and throwing them away, and they provide up to half-a-year of protection.
Containing insecticide-treated cotton, the tick tubes draw mice that take the cotton to build shelters. The insecticide goes into the mice’ blood, making them deadly to young ticks. Nymph ticks like to feed on mice, which means they’re quickly killed when they try to feed on the mice’s blood.
