Wayland MA tick control

You likely know that in all of the Northeast, Lyme disease is a huge problem here. But there’s another, much worse tick-vectored illness on the rise, Powassan virus. In fact, the CDC recently reported that diseases from both ticks and mosquitoes have more than tripled since 2004. The CDC is really driving home the importance of being tick-aware lately, even pointing out that they can be a tiny as a poppy seed .

While not all ticks are vectors of dangerous diseases, why take a chance? While Wayland is part of the Middlesex Tick Task Force, they basically tell you what to do after you get bitten by a tick. Even Wayland Wicked Local has been publishing articles about how officials are urging vigilance about ticks. However, their suggestion of "A little bit of vigilance, and some bug spray, can go a long way in reducing the health risks associated with ticks” is a nice sentiment, but it takes more than “vigilance and bug spray” to prevent tick-borne illnesses.

Wouldn’t you just rather avoid these little monsters all together?

That’s when you call the pros at Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts.

We take Wayland MA 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 treatment, the same formula conveniently eliminates up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact, too. It’s pretty powerful stuff, but when it comes to Wayland MA tick control, we go one step further to protect you and your loved ones from ticks and tick-borne illnesses.

Step One in our Wayland MA tick control process

We start with the same process as our mosquito controltraditional mosquito barrier treatment, treating the perimeter of your yard with our EPA-registered formula on all surfaces except flowers, and work our way inward. We treat bushes, trees, the undersides of leaves, woodpiles, on and under decks . . . basically everywhere. If you have any tall, grassy areas in your yard, we’ll give those special attention, because that’s primary tick territory. It’s where they’re most likely to be found, resting, breeding, and waiting to hitch a ride on their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure that’s not you or your loved ones, two legs or four.

Since our formula is micro encapsulated and therefore time-released, you’ll be protected from ticks (and mosquitoes, and other biting bugs) for up to 21 days. And since it adheres to everything it’s applied to, it prevents existing tick eggs from hatching, thus stopping the life cycle. Just like our mosquito barrier treatment, we recommend reapplication every three weeks for maximum efficiency.

But we don’t stop there.

Step two in our Wayland MA tick control: Going straight to the source

Lyme Disease and other tick-born illnesses caused by bacteria transmitted most often by the deer tick, but other ticks carry disease, too. Not every tick is a carrier of bad pathogens, but it’s best to err on the safe side. Young ticks become infected when they feed on small animals, usually 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 permethrin, a solution fatal to ticks. We strategically place these tubes around your property, and mice and other small animals find them and bring the cotton back to their burrows to make them nice and cozy. 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 Wayland MA tick control tubes are a proactive measure that Mosquito Squad takes, and help reduce up to 90% of tick populations before they’re able to multiply.

Prefer to stay away from synthetics?

No problem. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know there are some people who prefer to avoid synthetics all together. Which is why we also offer an all-natural, barrier treatment formula that we developed with essential oils and make in-house. This formula is more of a repellant than 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’s pretty close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Our all-natural formula is also time released, but we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three that our traditional treatment would need.
