Tick bites are painless, which is one reason why these pests spread so fast. Ticks are not only bothersome; they also carry many diseases that harm people and animals. Our tick control treatment offers both short-term and long-term protection, allowing you to enjoy your yard without worrying about ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests. A tick treatment from Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts works fast, and it gets rid of up to 90 percent of ticks in your yard. Learn more about our tick spray treatment by scheduling an in-person yard evaluation with a Mosquito Squad professional or reach out to us over the phone.
The Mosquito Squad 100-percent satisfaction guarantee covers all of our treatments. When you order our traditional tick control treatment, and you should see an 85-90 percent drop in ticks in your yard. If you don’t, we’ll head over and respray the yard at no charge. If you’re not happy with the respray for any reason, let us know and we’ll give you a 100-percent refund with no questions asked.
Consistent barrier spray treatments are an excellent way to maintain a tick-free yard. The EPA-approved solution we spray also kills mosquitoes and other pests, including gnats, flies, and fleas. Your barrier spray eliminates approximately 90 percent of ticks and lasts for three weeks. For optimal protection, order a spray package where we’ll revisit every three weeks and apply another treatment.
The spray process doesn’t take long; the average-size yard is complete in less than 60 minutes. We use backpack mist blowers, which let us quickly apply the time-released solution to your yard’s perimeter and common tick gathering locations, such as tall grass and near woodpiles.
Repel pests instead of killing them by opting for an all-natural barrier spray, which uses our in-house tick repellent. The solution’s made of essential oils that have an aroma that repels ticks and mosquitoes, but people can’t smell the spray within 24 hours of use. An organic barrier spray repels about 80 percent of ticks and mosquitoes, and the results last for up to two weeks.
Once we complete the barrier spray, we seek tick-breeding places and treat or remove them. Next, we place biodegradable tick tubes in carefully selected positions in your yard to attract mice. Each tick tube contains insecticide-treated cotton that mice take for housing construction, and as they interact with the cotton, the insecticide enters their bloodstream. Nymph ticks frequently feed on mice’s blood, and the ticks are killed off quickly after receiving the insecticide.
Our biodegradable tick tubes can push the total tick reduction past 90 percent in some cases. In addition, these durable tubes last for six months before needing to be replaced.
