Mosquito Squad Takes Chelmsford Tick Control to the Next Level

Ticks really suck. Literally. But more than that, these bugs, though small, can have a giant impact on the lives of you and your loved ones if they find you on the dinner menu. Here in Chelmsford and all over Massachusetts, we’re familiar with the dangers of Lyme disease, but there are many more serious tick-borne illnesses on the rise in our area, including Babesiosis and the rare but fatal Powassan virus.

While not all ticks are vectors of dangerous diseases, why take a chance? While Chelmsford is part of the Middlesex Tick Task Force, they basically tell you what to do after you get bitten by a tick. Even Chelmsford Wicked Local has been publishing articles about how officials are urging vigilance about ticks. However, their suggestion of "A little bit of vigilance, and some bug spray, can go a long way in reducing the health risks associated with ticks” is a nice sentiment, but it takes more than “vigilance and bug spray” to prevent tick-borne illnesses.

Wouldn’t you just rather avoid these little monsters all together?

That’s when you call the pros at Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts.

We take Chelmsford tick control seriously, because these little suckers are nothing to mess around with.

Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitos with our specially formulated barrier spray treatment, the same micro encapsulated formula also eliminates up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact. It’s pretty powerful stuff, but when it comes to your Chelmsford tick control, we go one step further to protect you and your loved ones from ticks and tick-borne illnesses.

Chelmsford MA Tick Control: Step One

The first thing we do is for Chelmsford tick control is treat the perimeter of your yard and work our way inward, just like our traditional barrier treatment. We make sure to treat all the foliage while avoiding flowers, plus surfaces around and underneath patios and decks. But for ticks, we give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where they generally spend the most time breeding, resting, and well, waiting for dinner. We don’t want your to be on the menu!

Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for three weeks before needing reapplication. The 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.

Chelmsford Tick Control: Step Two

Lyme Disease and other tick born diseases are most often transmitted by the deer tick, but other ticks are vectors, too. Not all ticks are carriers of these illnesses, but it’s best to err on the safe side. Ticks become infected when they feed on small animals, such as mice, that are infected. By going straight to the source through the implementation of tick tubes, we are able to stop the cycle of disease where it would normally start. That way, we’re eliminating ticks before they come anywhere near people and pets.

Tick tubes are small, biodegradable tubes we place strategically around your yard. We stuff them with a treated cotton that entice mice to bring back to their nests. When a tick bites one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly afterward. This extra, proactive step Mosquito Squad takes for your Chelmsford tick control helps eliminate the tick population in your yard by up to 90% before they’re able to multiply.

If you’re looking for a “greener” tick control solution . . .

. . . we’ve got that. While all of Mosquito Squads products are EPA-registered, we also get that some people prefer to go as “all natural” as possible. That’s why we also offer an all-natural treatment for your unwanted yard bugs. Based on natural oils, this more “crunchy” approach focuses more on repelling these little monsters than eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control solution, but it’s pretty close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also a time-released solution, this application is recommended to be repeated every two weeks, instead of the traditional three.
