We take your Pepperell tick control to the next level

Ticks really suck. Literally. But more than that, these bugs, though tiny, can have a huge impact on the lives of you and your loved ones if they find you on the dinner menu. Here in Pepperell 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.

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.

Here at Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts, we take our Pepperell 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 on up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact. It’s pretty powerful stuff, but we go one step further to protect you and your loved ones from ticks and tick-borne illnesses.

Pepperell tick control, phase one

The first phase of our Pepperell 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. We’re here to make 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 stops the life cycle of the tick population in your yard. Like our 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 Pepperell tick control approach

While many companies would pack up and go home after spraying, it’s not enough for Mosquito Squad. We go “straight to the source” of where we know future adult ticks are — mice. The next phase of our Pepperell tick control strategy is distributing tick tubes. These are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a permethrin-treated cotton that we strategically place around your yard to entice mice. They’re usually the first choice of a blood meal for ticks in their nymph stage. So when mice find these cotton-stuffed tubes, they take some of the cotton back to their burrows to make them nice and cozy, and the permethrin on the cotton rubs off on their fur. While that chemical is harmless to mice, it’s fatal to ticks. When a nymph tick tries attack one of these mice, it has no chance of surviving and is shortly eliminated thereafter.

This extra, proactive step Mosquito Squad takes by using tick tubes in addition to our barrier treatment ensures we knock down ticks at every stage of their life cycle and therefore, stay away from people and pets. As with all of our services, we promise nearly 90% elimination for three straight weeks.

Ask about our all-natural barrier treatment!

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we also offer an all-natural tick treatment solution for those of us who prefer to stay as “green” as possible. We developed this formula with essential oils as a base. This barrier spray solution focuses more on repelling pests than eliminating them.

It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control treatment, but it’s still pretty powerful — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also a time-released formula, this all-natural approach lasts for up to two weeks before needing reapplication.
