Battle a tick infestation in your yard with a proven treatment from the Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. We employ a multi-step treatment that kills adult ticks and young ticks while preventing them from returning to your yard. Expect an 85-90 percent reduction in the number of ticks in your yard after a treatment, plus a major drop in other pests, such as mosquitoes, flies, and fleas. Call us to schedule a treatment, request an in-person, free yard evaluation and estimate, or ask questions.
Our treatments get results, and we want you to be completely satisfied, which is why we offer the Mosquito Squad money-back guarantee. Our barrier spray should eliminate nearly 100 percent of ticks, and if it doesn’t, contact us and we’ll respray your yard at no cost or issue you a complete refund. Even after the respray, we’ll offer you a full refund with no questions or hassle if you’re not 100-percent happy.
A Mosquito Squad barrier spray works fast, eliminating up to 90 percent of adult ticks. We use an EPA-approved solution that’s time-released, so it keeps ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests away for up to three weeks. We spray your yard using backpack mist blowers, which let us access hard-to-reach areas, and we target damp, cool areas where ticks gather. We’ll also spray the exterior of your yard, which creates a barrier that blocks pests.
Prefer an eco-friendly treatment? We carry an in-house tick repellent, made with a surfactant and essential oils. This solution repels—but doesn’t aim to kill—65 to 80 percent of ticks, while also repelling gnats, mosquitoes, spiders, and certain types of ants. Our all-natural repellent releases a scent that drives ticks out of your yard and continues working for two weeks. While the solution gives off a botanical scent that pests detect, you won’t notice the smell after 24 hours of the treatment.
After we’re done spraying your yard, we search for tick and mosquito breeding locations. We treat or remove these areas, killing young ticks and preventing future infestations. Finally, we place tick tubes throughout your yard to complete the tick treatment.
While the barrier spray kills adult ticks, there’s still young ticks that will quickly multiply. To ensure these nymph ticks don’t take over your yard, we place biodegradable tick tubes in strategically selected locations. The tick tubes are positioned in places where you or your pets won’t step on them. Each tick tube holds insecticide-treated cotton, designed to attract mice that take the cotton for housing. Mice are the most common feeding target for nymph ticks, and they’re quickly eliminated after biting the mice.
