The tick population is increasing, and these pests carry a wide range of diseases, such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. As winter ends and the warm weather starts, you don’t want ticks bouncing around in your yard. If you have pets, young kids, or tall grass, the possibility of a tick infestation developing increases. Don’t take chances when it comes to the health of you and your family. Order a multi-step tick treatment from the Mosquito Squad, so you can get back to enjoying your yard in peace. We’re available to answer questions or provide a quote via telephone, and you can have us visit your home for an in-depth, free yard evaluation.
The Mosquito Squad guarantee gives you a 100 percent refund in the event that you’re not pleased with your tick treatment. If you prefer, we can respray your property, and if you still don’t see the desired results, we’ll issue a complete refund with no questions or hassle.
Step one of our tick control treatment involves a traditional barrier spray. It works instantly and kills up to 90 percent of adult ticks. The results last for around three weeks before another spray treatment is recommended. We apply a micro-encapsulated spray on areas where ticks frequently gather, and we spray the perimeter of the yard to create a border that ticks avoid. This treatment also helps control other pests, including mosquitoes and flies.
If you’re searching for a more eco-friendly option that our traditional spray, we suggest an organic barrier spray. The process is exactly the same as the traditional spray, but it repels—but doesn’t aim to kill—65 to 85 percent of ticks, as well as many other pests. The results last for up to 14 days because this is a gentler option.
After we’re finished spraying, our team searches for all tick- and mosquito-breeding areas, and then we remove or treat them. This step is important, as it reduces the number of nymph ticks.
While the barrier spray gets rid of adult ticks, our biodegradable tick tubes focus on dealing with nymph ticks. Inside each tick tube is cotton that’s been treated with insecticide, and we place the tubes in inconspicuous locations that won’t disturb anyone in the house. Mice love to take the cotton to build housing, and since mice are the most common blood meal for young ticks, they’re eliminated promptly after biting the mice.
Our tick tubes last for up to six months, so we suggest having us come by twice a year and replacing them for the best results.
