Tick Control Massachusetts is Essential with Over a Decade of Rapid Lyme Growth

According to the latest full-year stats by the CDC, Massachusetts is the number four state for Lyme Disease cases. Going from just over 2,000 cases in 2005 to a peak in 2009 of 4,019 cases. We have danced around the mid 3,000 cases per year range ever since, landing at 2,922 confirmed Lyme cases in 2015. Just in Worcester County, we’ve seen over 100% increase in Lyme cases from 2005 – 2016.

The CDC themselves estimate that the actual annual number of Lyme cases in the U.S. per year is most likely around the 300,000 range. This, despite confirmed and reported cases coming in at around 30,000. Given this underreporting and the geographic distribution of Lyme disease being heavily focused in the northeast, we know that in Massachusetts our numbers are significantly higher than measured.

So, what can we do to protect ourselves from ticks in Massachusetts?

Tick Control Massachusetts: What You Can Do

Follow the 6 Cs of Tick-Proofing your Property. Ticks are not just hanging out in the woods. Ticks will hitch a ride onto your property on a deer, falling off in your yard. They like tall grass, leaf litter, and damp shady spaces near retaining walls. By choosing the right plants, you can keep the deer away and give those ticks that do enter your property a less than hospitable environment.

Additional tick control can be achieved through Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts’ intensive tick treatment service. With a combination of tick barrier treatment and tick tubes, we can effectively eliminate more than 90% of ticks from your property. Call today to learn more. 877.750.0533
