Get rid of most ticks in your yard in a less than one day with an effective Mosquito Squad treatment. As you probably know, ticks carry many dangerous diseases, including Lyme disease and babesiosis, so don’t take any chances by using ineffective, over-the-counter solutions. Our multi-step tick treatment handles the problem at its core, ensuring your tick problem is gone for good. Have us visit your home to evaluate your yard and provide a quote, or call us up and we are able to provide a quote after asking a few questions about your home and pest problem. While you’re considering whether to get a treatment, here are some useful tips from us on how to make your property less attractive to ticks.
Go with a traditional barrier spray to see approximately 90 percent of mature ticks eliminated. The process doesn’t take long; for the average-size yard, we’re often able to finish spraying in 30-40 minutes. Using a time-released spray, we apply an EPA-approved solution around the yard’s exterior and on places where pests gather, such as tall grass and the bases of fences and walls. The spray we use contains microcapsules that break down over time, protecting your yard for up to three weeks.
Instead of our traditional spray, opt for our eco-friendly all-natural spray. We make the solution in-house using essential oils that tend to repel ticks, mosquitoes, and many other pests. Unlike a traditional spray, an organic treatment repels pests but doesn’t aim to kill them. After an all-natural spray, you’ll notice a faint botanical aroma lingering for no more than 24 hours, however, many customers report that they don’t mind the scent and some people even state that it’s a pleasant fragrance. An organic spray treatment repels up to 85 percent of mature ticks and keeps them away for up to two weeks.
Talk to your Mosquito Squad technician about our spray packages. By paying in advance for multiple treatments, you get a much better price. If you cancel at any time, we refund the unused spray treatments. Also, the Mosquito Squad guarantee states that you’re entitled to a refund or respray if the treatment doesn’t meet your expectations. If your respray still doesn’t do the trick, we’ll issue a no-hassle refund without any questions.
To eliminate nymph ticks and stop an infestation from developing, we set tick tubes around your yard. These biodegradable tubes last for six months, and they contain insecticide-treated cotton that lures mice. Mice take the cotton and use it for housing. Nymph ticks often feed on mice, and the insecticide goes into the mice’ blood, so the ticks die off when they attempt to feed on the mice.
