Mosquito Squad is your expert in Hopkinton MA tick control

In May 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released an alarming report that indicated vector-borne diseases more than tripled since 2004. Perhaps more alarming is that ticks were responsible for about 77% of those, with Lyme disease accounting for 82% of all tick-borne disease reports. While those numbers are disturbing enough, the the rate of tick-borne diseases in Massachusetts alone puts us as #3 in number of tick-borne diseases in the nation.

As if that weren’t bad enough, according to one of the study’s authors, Dr. Lyle Petersen, nearly 80% of vector control organizations need improvement in at least one or more of five core competencies, such as testing for pesticide resistance or even having an action plan to kill mosquitoes and ticks at every life stage. Basically, don’t rely on the government to help you if you get bitten by an infected tick or mosquito. All one needs to do is visit the Town of Hopkinton’s website to see a little less-than-helpful information about ticks, a site that hasn’t even been updated since 2014. Sure, Mass.gov has some educational materials to download, which might be nice to pass out in a classroom, but really . . . how does that actually help if you get sick from a tick?

If may seem frustrating that the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its citizens from mosquito- and tick-borne diseases, but you as a private citizen have the power to take things into your own hands. Call Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts to protect you and your family from ticks and the dangerous diseases they carry. Our Hopkinton MA tick control is guaranteed to be nearly 90% effective for three weeks at a time, just like our mosquito control. And with our tick control, we step it up a notch and have a dual-phase approach to make sure ticks don’t go anywhere near you and your family. With Mosquito Squad’s Hopkinton MA tick control approach, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that while the government can’t protect you and your family from ticks and mosquitoes, you can.

Hopkinton MA tick control, phase one

The first phase of our Hopkinton MA tick control is the same as our traditional mosquito barrier treatment — we treat your property from the perimeter inward, applying our EPA-registered formula on everything except flowers and other bee-friendly plants. We cover it all — bushes, decks and beneath them, leaves, trees, woodpiles, you name it. For ticks, we concentrate even more on tall grassy areas and places like leaf piles, because that’s prime tick territory. You’re mostly to find them in those places breeding, resting, and waiting to hitch a ride on the next tasty meal that walks by. Mosquito Squad is in the business of making sure that’s not you.

Since our formula is micro encapsulated, it’s time-released, meaning you’ll be protected from ticks (and other biting bugs) for up to three weeks at a time. It’s odorless and colorless, and adheres to everything it’s applied to, therefore it prevents existing tick eggs from hatching. This is ideal in stopping the life cycle of the tick population in your yard. As with mosquito barrier treatment, we recommend reapplication every three weeks for maximum efficiency. Don’t worry, we offer seasonal packages so you don’t forget to reschedule, and we’ll always call a day in advance to remind you that we’re coming.

Phase two in our Hopkinton MA tick control

Here’s what we call “the bonus round.” Distributing barrier spray treatment might be enough for other companies, but not Mosquito Squad. We take it a step further and strategically distribute ticks tubes around your yard, which are small biodegradable tubes stuffed with a treated cotton. These entice mice, who love to take the cotton back to their burrows. When that happens, their fur becomes toxic to ticks. Most ticks in their nymph stage get their blood meal from mice, so this works outs well. When a nymph tick tries to attack one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. Doing this ensure that ticks are not only eliminated during their main stage of development to adults, but it prevents them from coming anywhere near you or your family. With Mosquito Squad’s combined Hopkinton MA tick control approach, you’re guaranteed to have nearly 90% of the tick population in your yard gone for three weeks at a time.

Prefer to stay as “green” as possible?

We get it. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know there are some people who prefer to avoid synthetics all together. That’s why we also offer an all-natural, barrier treatment formula that we developed with essential oils. This formula is a repellant, not an eliminator, which confuses bugs with its scent and drives them out of your yard. It has a pleasant botanical scent to people for a few hours after application, but wears off quickly to the human nose.

While it’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control treatment, it comes close — most customers who use our all-natural barrier spray notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. While it’s also time released, it breaks down a little faster because of its botanical makeup. So we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three that our traditional treatment would need.
