Mosquito Squad is Your Westminster MA Tick Control HQ

If you live in New England, you’re likely aware that Lyme disease is everywhere here. It’s such a big problem that in 2015 it was a officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. Between 2000-2015, there were at least 5294 cases of lyme in Worcester County alone.

But that nasty tick-borne illness isn’t the only one we need to be wary of. There are many other scary diseases that ticks can transmit, like the potentially-fatal Powassan virus, which the Telegram says is increasing in Massachusetts.

The Town of Westminster’s website has a few PDFs you can download about ticks, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a few helpful videos about what to do if you get bitten by a tick and how to protect yourself from them, but do you even want to worry about that possibility to begin with?

That’s when you call in the pros.

Not only is Mosquito Squad your Massachusetts mosquito elimination authority, we’re also your Westminster MA tick control headquarters. Conveniently, the same barrier spray treatment we use for mosquitoes also eliminates adult and ticks and fleas. Our tick control treatment eliminates up to 90% of ticks on contact. But we have a two-pronged approach that takes tick control to a whole new level, because tick-borne illnesses are no joke and we want to get rid of ticks before they come anywhere near people.

Our Westminster MA Tick Control Process — Step One

The first thing we do is follow the same barrier treatment process we use for our mosquito control, by treating the perimeter of your yard and working our way inward. We use our special, micro encapsulated formula to treat surfaces like shrubbery and other foliage while taking special care to avoid blooming plants like flowers. We even treat areas such as patios and under decks. But with our Westminster MA tick control, we give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where ticks are most likely to be hanging out, resting, breeding, and waiting for their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure you’re not on the menu.

Because our formula is time-released, it will keep on working for up to 21 days after it’s distributed, which helps in both eliminating ticks on contact and preventing their eggs from hatching. This halts the next generation of these gross bugs before it starts. We recommend treating your property every three weeks for season-long protection.

But we don’t stop there.

Westminster Tick Control Step Two — the “bonus round”

Lyme Disease and other tick-vectored illnesses are usually caused by bacteria transmitted by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis), but there are other ticks and diseases we need to watch out for s as well. While it’s true that not all ticks are carriers of these illnesses, the only way to tell if a tick is a carrier of anything scary is after we’re bitten. (If you do get bitten, please save your tick after safely removing it and send it to UMass Amherst’s tick testing service, especially if you get sick.) Ticks become infected when they feed on mice and other small animals that are infected. By going “straight to the source” and implementing tick tubes, we’re stopping the cycle of disease before it even starts.

Tick tubes are small tubes made of biodegradable material that are filled with cotton treated with a solution that is fatal to ticks. Mice find these and carry some of the cotton underground to make their burrows nice and cozy. When a tick bites one of these mice, they’re eliminated shortly after. Tick tubes are an extremely effective proactive measure we take. They can reduce the ticks in your yard by up to 90% because it destroys the tick population before they’re able to multiply.

Prefer something “greener” than our traditional treatment? No problem.

We also offer an all-natural barrier treatment. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we understand there are some people who want to be as eco-friendly as possible. We have a specially developed an all-natural solution with essential oils and a few secret ingredients. While it’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, our all-natural formula is still highly effective — most customers notice a reduction in mosquitoes, ticks, and other yard pests by up to 80% using this method. Also time released, we highly recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of the three that our traditional barrier spray would need.

We’re extremely confident in our service and effectiveness of our product, but if you’re not happy for any reason at all, we’ll either re-treat your property or give you your money back.
