Just like mosquitoes, ticks carry many dangerous diseases, including Lyme disease and ehrlichiosis. Ticks affect tens of thousands of people each year in the US alone, and their bites often go undetected because they don't itch or hurt. Keep these dangerous pests out of your yard with a tick treatment from the Mosquito Squad. We apply a high-quality spray solution that eliminates mature ticks and keeps them away for up to three weeks. The treatment process is fast and easy. If you're undecided on purchasing a treatment, contact us for a free evaluation and estimate. There's no commitment required, and we'll be happy to answer any questions you have.
Our tick control plans begin with a barrier spray treatment. Using an EPA-approved solution, we spray areas that are vulnerable to ticks. The time-released solution quickly kills ticks and continues working for up to three weeks. In addition to eliminating ticks, the solution also controls gnats, flies, mosquitoes, and fleas, helping you regain a pest-free yard. Our team uses high-powered mist blowers, which let us access hard-to-reach areas.
After spraying your yard, we carefully place tick tubes throughout your property. The tubes contain treated cotton, which is designed to attract mice. Ticks like to feed on the blood of mice, and when the mice begin taking the treated cotton, which they try to use to build a shelter, ticks are quickly killed. The final step for most treatments is to treat or remove all tick-breeding areas.
It doesn't take long for us to treat most yards. Often, we finish the barrier spray in under 20 minutes, and after we're done spraying, the solution only takes 30 minutes to dry and then your yard is free to use. We also don't require you to be home when we arrive or begin working. Whether you're at work or enjoying your free time, our skilled team gets the job done and leaves a notice of completion afterward so that you know we were there.
Some of our customers prefer organic options, which is why we created our all-natural treatment solution. We make the solution with a combination of essential oils that are carefully chosen for their repellent properties. After spraying your yard with this solution, a botanical smell lingers around for up to one day. However, some customers actually report that they enjoy the solution's green aroma.
This gentler treatment option repels ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests instead of trying to kill them. When we use our all-natural repellent for a barrier spray, expect a 65 to 80 percent reduction in ticks. The solution goes away a bit faster than our traditional solution, as it provides continuous protection for up to two weeks.
