Ticks hide in secluded areas and multiply at a rapid rate. By the time you notice ticks jumping around your yard, you likely have a tick infestation in your home. Tick bites aren't painful or itchy, and they feed on a host's blood for days for weeks, allowing these pests to go undetected for quite some time. Don't waste your time trying to get rid of ticks with inefficient over-the-counter products or natural remedies; contact Mosquito Squad for a multi-phase tick treatment to reclaim your yard from ticks and other pests. For a commitment-free, no-cost yard evaluation and price quote, call us today and schedule an appointment to have a knowledgeable specialist visit your home.
Our treatment consists of a barrier spray and carefully placed tick tubes. We recommend continued tick barrier sprays for long-term protection. However, one traditional barrier spray kills most ticks immediately and provides prolonged protection for three weeks. A team of skilled applicators visits your home and uses backpack mist blowers to apply a time-released, EPA-approved solution around the perimeter of your home, as well as specific areas where ticks like to loiter.
The second step is to place tick tubes in strategic locations in your yard. Designed to attract mice, tick tubes transform mice into mobile tick killers. There's treated cotton inside each tick tube, which mice gather to build housing. As the mice touch the cotton, they get insecticide on their fur, and then when ticks try to feed on the mice, they're quickly eliminated. Of course, these tick tubes are biodegradable, and we place them in inconspicuous areas so that you don't step on them.
Finally, we look for all tick and mosquito-breeding areas, and then we treat or remove them to complete the treatment.
You never have to wait around for us to arrive, as our team is able to treat your yard while you're not home. To notify you of what we did and when we were there, we leave a notice of completion on your door.
Order a treatment with confidence, as you're always protected by our satisfaction guarantee. If a treatment doesn't provide the results you wanted, let us know and you'll get a full refund without questions or a hassle.
We also offer an in-house, organic tick repellent that we can use with a barrier spray. The solution we use repels, rather than kills, 65 to 80 percent of ticks and also keeps away many other pests, including gnats, spiders, mosquitoes, and fleas. A spray treatment using our all-natural repellent keeps pests away for two weeks before needing to be reapplied.
