Ticks suck. Literally. What’s worse is that these little bugs, although small, can have a huge impact on the lives of you and your loved ones if they hitch a ride, looking for a free meal. In Tewksbury and all over Massachusetts, we’re all familiar with the dangers of Lyme disease, but there are many more tick-borne illnesses on the rise in our area, including Babesiosis and the the rare, but fatal Powassan virus.
While not all ticks are infected with and carry scary diseases, do you really want to get bitten by one and take the chance? Even Wicked Local has been publishing things about how officials are urging people to be more vigilant about ticks, but their suggestions of “using tick and mosquito repellent, wearing long sleeves and long pants outdoors, and performing periodic checks for ticks on your body” simply aren’t realistic. When the weather is nice out, who wants to be bundled up in their own yard? That’s where we come in. Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts is your Tewksbury tick control team.
Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitos with our specially formulated barrier spray, it so happens that the same micro encapsulated formula works on up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact, too. It’s pretty powerful, but when it comes to Tewksbury tick control, we go one step further to protect you and your loved ones from ticks and tick-borne illnesses.
Following the same barrier spray process we use for mosquito control, we distribute our special bug-eliminating formula to treat surfaces in your yard that include shrubbery, foliage (avoiding flowers), around and underneath decks and patios, and especially tall grass. Special attention is given to the tall grass areas on your property for Tewksbury tick control since this is typically where you can find them breeding, resting and waiting for their next blood meal.
Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for up to 21 days once the treatment is disbursed. This 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. We recommend treating your property every three weeks for season-long protection.
Lyme Disease and other tick-born illnesses caused by bacteria transmitted most often by the deer tick, but other ticks are carriers, 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.
What’s a tick tube? Well, it’s a small tube with biodegradable tubing that’s filled with cotton treated with a solution fatal to ticks. We strategically place these tubes around your property, and small animals like mice and rabbits will find the cotton and use it to build their nests. When a hungry tick bites and feeds off one of these small animals, it’s gone from this world and one fewer tick to worry about potentially causing anyone damage. These Tewksbury tick control tubes are a proactive measure that Mosquito Squad takes, and reduce up to 90% of tick populations before they’re able to multiply.
Not a problem. 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, organic treatment for your unwanted pests. Based on natural oils, this more “crunchy” approach focuses more on repelling these little buggers than eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control solution, but it’s pretty darn close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also time-released, this application is recommended to be repeated every two weeks, instead of the traditional three.
As your Tewksbury tick control team, we’re confident that we’ll win the tick elimination game in your yard. But, if you’re not completely satisfied for any reason, we’ll either re-treat your property or offer your money back. But we know smart consumers do their research, which is why we encourage you to check our local customer satisfaction stats and reviews online by clicking the Google button on the right.
