If you've been trying to get rid of ticks with store-bought products, there's an easier and more effective option: request a professional treatment from the Mosquito Squad. Ticks hide in secluded areas, making it hard for you to get rid of them on your own. We use a multi-step treatment process to take care of your tick problem at its core, freeing your yard from these frustrating pests so that you can enjoy your time outdoors again. If you want to find out how we can help you, call us and schedule a time for us to stop by your residence. Our experienced team will examine your yard and let you know exactly what needs to be done. A Mosquito Squad evaluation and estimate is free and requires no commitment, so you can make a pressure-free decision.
The first phase of a Mosquito Squad tick treatment is a barrier spray. If you have a standard-sized yard, this shouldn't take longer than 15 to 20 minutes, and it kills most mature ticks and keeps them away for up to three weeks. We send a team of applicators to your home who spray a time-released, EPA-approved solution using backpack mist blowers. We spray the solution in places that ticks like to flock to and around the exterior of your yard.
Next, we find the best places to put tick tubes. These useful tick tubes attract mice and then use the mice to eliminate ticks. We put cotton with an insecticide inside the tubes. Mice see the cotton and take it to build a dwelling. The insecticide gets on their fur, which kills off ticks that bite them. Our biodegradable tick tubes turn mice into efficient tick-eliminating machines. Lastly, we treat or remove all tick-breeding areas to complete the treatment.
You don't have to stay at home waiting for us to arrive. Have our team apply the treatment while you're away from the house, so you can enjoy your free time and return to a practically pest-free residence. If we leave before you return home, we put a notice of completion on the front door for your records.
Each tick treatment from Mosquito Squad is backed by our satisfaction guarantee. If you're not happy with our work for any reason, ask us for a refund. You'll get a complete refund with no questions.
We can also use an organic solution for a barrier spray. This is a less harsh treatment option, but it still repels 65 to 80 percent of ticks for two weeks. After we spray the solution, it releases an aroma that repels and confuses pests to keep them away from your yard. While this repellent has a smell that's noticeable by pests, people won't be able to smell the solution's botanical scent within 24 hours of treatment.
