Tick-borne illnesses are increasing in the United States, and unlike mosquitoes, ticks affect tens of thousands of people in the US annually. They thrive in conditions found in many homes, including tall grass, close proximity to fields or woods, or a wall fence. Once you notice these pests in your yard, it's likely that you already have a tick infestation, and ticks are hard to get rid of as their bites don't cause pain or itch. Professional treatment is the best way to get rid of these pests. Get in touch with the Mosquito Squad to have a professional visit your home and provide a free evaluation and estimate, so you can rid your home of these frustrating pests.
To provide the best possible tick control, we use two treatment methods to clear your yard of ticks and other pests. First, we begin with our barrier spray treatment. A team of applicators with powerful backpack mist blowers spray a time-released solution on the perimeter of your yard and in all areas where ticks are likely to gather. This EPA-approved solution quickly kills ticks, mosquitoes, fleas, flies, and other pests and continues to kill and repel them for three weeks. It usually only takes us about twenty minutes to spray your property, assuming you have an average-size yard.
Second, we position biodegradable tick tubes in your yard. Placed in unintrusive areas, these tubes attract mice and eliminate ticks. The inside of the tubes contain treated cotton, which mice take to try to use to build a shelter. When the mice gather the cotton, the insecticide kills all ticks that interact with the mice. This effective treatment turns mice into mobile tick exterminators and works quite well, as mice are one of the most common animals that ticks bite. The last step in the treatment is quick but effective. We find all tick breeding areas in your yard, then we remove or treat them.
Our treatments are designed to offer maximum convenience. Our team is able to work while you're not at the house, allowing you to enjoy your free time while we eliminate pests. After we finish working, we leave a notice of completion for you. Another benefit of ordering a treatment from Mosquito Squad is our 100 percent, money-back guarantee. If your treatment doesn't offer the results that you expect, we give you a complete refund with no questions asked.
We make our own organic tick repellent that we can use for a barrier spray. If you ask for an all-natural barrier spray, expect to see a 65-80% reduction in pests and two weeks of continued protection. After spraying this all-natural repellent, there's a moderate botanical aroma that stays around for about twenty-four hours.
