Mosquito Squad protects you from tick-borne diseases with our Leominster tick control

Ticks are gross. Not only are they gross, but the little buggers can be very dangerous, as they can carry multiple serious diseases, some being potentially fatal. Diseases like Babesiosis, Lyme disease are increasingly common here. Even Leominster-local families have been dealing with the effects of Lyme in their children. If you have any doubts that mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses are increasingly prevalent, the CDC released a report in May 2018 about how vector-borne diseases have more than tripled since 2004.

Nobody wants to see themselves or their loved ones deal with a tick-borne illness, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, almost nobody. Consider Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts your Leominster tick control specialists.

Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts isn’t just the most trusted name in mosquito control, we’re also the most trusted name in tick control, too. And as it happens, the same barrier spray treatment that we use to eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes on your property is also that effective on adult ticks, if not more. But we take it a step further than our traditional barrier treatment, because we know that NOBODY wants to see themselves or anyone else they love suffer from a tick-borne disease.

The first step in our Leominster tick control

The first thing we do is follow the same barrier treatment process we use for our mosquito control, by treating the perimeter of your yard and working our way inward. We use our special, micro encapsulated formula to treat surfaces like shrubbery and other foliage while taking special care to avoid blooming plants like flowers. We even treat areas such as patios and under decks. But with our Leominster tick control, we give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where ticks are most likely to be hanging out, resting, breeding, and waiting for their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure you’re not on the menu.

Because our formula is time-released, it will keep on working for up to 21 days after it’s distributed, which helps in both eliminating ticks on contact and preventing their eggs from hatching. This halts the next generation of these gross bugs before it starts. We recommend treating your property every three weeks for season-long protection.

But we don’t stop there.

Step two in our Leominster tick control strategy

Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases are usually caused by bacteria transmitted by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis), but there are other ticks and diseases we need to worry about these days as well. While it’s true that not all ticks are carriers of these pathogens, the only way to tell if a tick is a carrier of anything scary is after we’re bitten. Ticks become infected when they feed on mice and other small animals that are infected. By going “straight to the source” and implementing tick tubes, we’re stopping the cycle of disease before it even starts.

Tick tubes are small tubes made of biodegradable material that are filled with cotton treated with a solution that is fatal to ticks. Mice find these and carry some of the cotton underground to build their nests. When a tick bites one of these mice, they’re eliminated shortly after. Tick tubes are an extremely effective proactive measure we take, because it can reduce the ticks in your yard by up to 90% because it destroys the tick population before they’re able to multiply.

Consider yourself a bit more “crunchy” than most?

It’s okay. Though all of our products are EPA-registered, we understand that some people still prefer to avoid synthetics all together and insist on staying as “green” as possible. That’s why we developed our all-natural barrier treatment which we developed with essential oils at its base and still develop in-house.

This botanical solution is more of a repellant than an eliminator, essentially chasing the bugs out of your yard. While not quite as effective our traditional barrier treatment, it’s pretty close — most customers report a reduction in yard pests somewhere around 70-80%. Our all-natural formula is also time-released, but because of its makeup breaks down slightly faster and is recommend to be reapplied every two weeks instead of three.
