Northborough MA tick control

You know what sucks about ticks? EVERYTHING! These little monsters are tiny, but some of the most dangerous creatures in the world. Mainly associated in New England with Lyme disease, which was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts in 2015. Lyme is most common in these parts, but other, more dangerous tick-borne illnesses like Babesiosis are increasing in rate, especially in Middlesex county. In fact, in May 2018 the CDC released a report stating that diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled in the United States since 2004, and unfortunately that rate does not appear to be slowing down.

Further, the CDC also outright states that 80% of government vector-control organizations are not prepared to deal with this new onslaught of vector-borne diseases. All one has to do is go to the Town of Northborough’s website to see that they offer little more than links to elsewhere about mosquito and tick safety, and Mass.gov just offers basic info, which is informational, but on the whole, not proactive in protecting you or your family.

Fortunately, Mosquito Squad picks up the slack where the government falls behind, and with our signature barrier treatment, you’re protected from both mosquitoes and ticks in your yard by nearly 90% for up to 21 days at a time — guaranteed. But if it’s specific protection from ticks that you’re looking for, our Northborough MA tick control goes above and beyond the standard barrier treatment to make sure ticks in every stage of life are eliminated. Our approach is two-pronged, and we enlist the help of some furry friends.

Northborough MA tick control – Phase One

As we mentioned, our traditional barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes also eliminates around 90% of adult ticks on contact, and continues to eliminate for up to three weeks. That means that even if a tick entered your yard by hitching a ride on something like a squirrel, the moment it left that critter and found its way onto anything that our odorless, colorless barrier treatment dried upon would die shortly after encountering our time-released formula. When we concentrate specifically for ticks, we pay extra attention to areas that we know they like to hang out — mainly tall grass, woodpiles, and things of that nature. But then, we give it one-two punch and go “straight to the source” to eliminate ticks even in their younger stages in your Northborough MA tick control with what we call “the bonus round.”

Phase Two of our Northborough MA tick control — a.k.a. “the bonus round”

If you do your research online, you’ll see that other outdoor pest control companies stop at a spray when it comes to ticks. Not Mosquito Squad. We take it a step further and use the help of the common field mouse, who is a cute, innocent, and very stealthy “helper” in our fight against ticks. Contrary to their name, “deer ticks” actually pick up things like Lyme disease not from deer, but most often from mice, bunnies, and other small critters who call your and your neighbors’ yards home. This usually happens when ticks are in their larva or nymph stage of life. So we strategically place these small, biodegradable tubes called “tick tubes” in places they frequent.

Tick tubes are stuffed with cotton that is treated with a mild insecticide called permethrin, which is harmless to the small animals but lethal to ticks. The idea is (and this works impressively well) that the mice or other small mammal finds this cotton and brings it back to their nest to cozy it up. In doing so, the permethrin rubs off on their fur, and when a young tick attempts to get its blood meal from one of these animals, it encounters the chemical and is eliminated shortly thereafter. This “straight to the source” approach allows Mosquito Squad to get rid of ticks in all stages of life and thus, halt their life cycle in your yard, ensuring 90% or more tick elimination overall.

Prefer to be on the “greener” side of things? No problem.

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, we understand that some folks still prefer to stay away from synthetics. Which is why we developed our all-natural barrier treatment formula, based on essential oils. To this day we mix it in-house, and it’s applied the same way as our traditional barrier treatment.

While it also eliminates on contact, after it dries (about 30 minutes) it acts more of a repellant than an eliminator, meaning that it confuses bugs and essentially “chases” them out of your yard. While it’s also time-released, because its makeup is strictly botanical it breaks down a little more quickly than our traditional barrier treatment, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three. How effective is it? Pretty close to the traditional formula — most homeowners who elect the all-natural formula report a reduction in yard pests by around 75-80%.
