Call Mosquito Squad for expert Westborough MA tick control

There is absolutely NOTHING good about ticks. They’re gross little creepy-crawly bloodsucking bugs that have the potential to transmit some seriously scary diseases, including Lyme disease which, as you probably know, is all over the Northeast. It’s so bad here that Massachusetts officially declared it an epidemic in 2005. Last year, ticks were so bad that Boston 25 News called it a “tick explosion.” There are other terrible tick-borne diseases here, though, that aren’t Lyme. Things like Babesiosis, that is dangerous to both humans and dogs, and the very scary Powassan virus, which is on the rise.

In May 2018, CDC released an alarming report stating that between 2006 and 2016, diseases from ticks and mosquitoes have more than tripled. That’s enough to make anyone want to never go outside again. But that’s not necessary. Not when Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts is on your side!

Our traditional barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes also eliminates ticks on your property by up to 90% for three weeks, but we take an extra step to make sure these little bloodsuckers don’t come anywhere near you or your loved ones on your property.

Step One in our Westborough MA tick control

We start with the same process as our traditional 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 prime 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.

Then we move on to what we call “the bonus round.”

The “bonus round” in our Westborough tick control — going straight to the source

The black legged tick (also known as the deer tick) is the one responsible for Lyme disease in the Northeast, but that doesn’t mean that other ticks don’t carry diseases, too. And no, not all ticks are carriers. But the only way to know for sure if one is a carrier of a dangerous disease is after you’ve been bitten and you start developing symptoms. That’s not a gamble anybody should even take. So that’s why we go straight to the source and employ tick tubes.

What are tick tubes? They’re small, biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a treated cotton. We place these strategically around your property to entice mice and other small critters, they love to use this cotton to cozy up their nests. Many (if not most) ticks in their nymph stage get their blood meal from these small animals, so when one tries to take a bite out of an animal who has taken the cotton, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. It’s with this tactic that we eliminate ticks straight at the source, so there’s no chance of them coming anywhere near you, your family, or anyone else on your property.

With our Westborough MA tick control approach, we can guarantee up to 90% reduction in tick population in your yard for three weeks at a time before needing treatment again. Our seasonal plans will ensure you never have to remember to make additional appointments, and we’ll always call and confirm with you that we’re coming 24 hours in advance so there are no surprises, and you can spend time in your yard this summer worry-free.

Looking for something all-natural?

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. That’s why we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment formula that we developed with essential oils at its base. This formula is more of a repellant than an eliminator, which confuses bugs 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 because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly faster. So we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three that our traditional treatment would need.
