Mosquito Squad is your Burlington MA tick control expert

When many people hear the word “tick,” they automatically think of Lyme disease, and with good reason — it’s the most well-known tick-borne illness, and all over New England and the rest of the Northeast. But ticks transmit more than just Lyme disease, that one’s just the “most popular.” Serious tick-borne illnesses also include Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and the rare, but fatal Powassan virus, to name a few. Nobody wants to see themselves or any of their loved ones deal with a tick-borne illness, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, almost nobody. Consider Mosquito Squad your Burlington MA tick control specialists.

While not all ticks are carriers of disease, do you really want you or someone you love get bitten by one and take a chance? Even Burlington Wicked Local wrote about how officials are urging people to be more vigilant about ticks, but their suggestions of “using tick and mosquito repellent, wearing long sleeves and long pants outdoors, and performing periodic checks for ticks on your body” just aren’t realistic. When the weather is nice out, who wants to be bundled up in their own yard?

There is an easier way enjoy your own yard without worrying about ticks and the potential diseases they carry, and that’s with Mosquito Squad. As it turns out, the same barrier spray treatment that we use for mosquito control also eliminates adult ticks and fleas. Our tick control treatment is extremely effective and can eliminate up to 95% of adult ticks on contact, but we take it a step further and have a two-pronged approach to our Burlington MA tick control. We make sure they’re eliminated at the source before they come anywhere near you or your family.

How Burlington MA Tick Control Works, Step One:

The first thing Mosquito Squad does is follow the same barrier spray treatment process that we do for mosquitoes, applying our micro encapsulated, time-released formula to all areas of your yard (aside from flowers), including foliage, bushes, trees, under leaves, on and under porches and decks, woodpiles, etc. We give a lot more attention to the tall grassy areas of your property (if there are any), because that’s where ticks like to hang out and rest, breed, and wait for their dinner . . . it’s our job to make sure it’s not you.

Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for up to 21 days once the treatment is disbursed. This barrier treatment has the added benefit of preventing the eggs of ticks from hatching and thus puts a stop to the next generation of these pests. We suggest treating your property every 3 weeks for season-long protection, and offer seasonal packages to make sure you’re covered all season-long.

Step Two — Going “Straight to the Source”

Lyme disease and other tick-vectored illnesses are most often transmitted by the deer tick, but other ticks are carriers, too. Obviously, not all ticks are carriers of scary pathogens, but it’s best to be on the safe side. Ticks become infected when they feed on small animals (usually mice) that are infected. By going straight to the source and implementing tick tubes, we’re able to eliminate ticks before they even come near people or pets.

Tick tubes are small biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a treated cotton that mice love to bring back to their burrows. When ticks decide to attack one of those mice, they’re eliminated shortly afterward. Mosquito Squad is very strategic on where we place these tick tubes to ensure maximum mice-enticement and efficiency. By taking this extra, proactive step in your Burlington MA tick control, Mosquito Squad is able to ensure a reduction in your yard’s tick population by up to 90%, before they’re able to mulitply.

Prefer an all-natural alternative to your Burlington MA tick control?

We’ve got that. All of our products are EPA-registered, but we know there are some people who want to be as “green” as can be, so we developed our essential-oil based, all-natural barrier treatment solution. While it’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, this formula is still highly effective — most customers notice a reduction in mosquitoes, ticks, and other yard pests by up to 80% using this method. Also a time-released solution, we recommend reapplication every two weeks as opposed to the three that the traditional barrier spray would need.
