Mosquito Squad of Worcester is your best choice for controlling the tick population in your yard. If you’re facing an internal conflict of wanting you, your kids or your pets to spend more time outdoors, but the hassle of dealing with ticks is daunting, then you’re a good candidate for professional tick control services. While ticks are definitely a huge annoyance, they are also dangerous. Ticks carry and transmit many dangerous diseases such as Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted fever and more. Avoiding ticks and tick bites is the number one way to prevent these hazardous and sometimes deadly diseases.
Mosquito Squad of Worcester takes a multi-faceted approach to eliminating ticks in your yard. First we use our traditional barrier spray to eliminate mosquitoes on contact. Secondly, we use tick tubes twice a year to eliminate larval ticks & nymph ticks – effectively interrupting the tick life cycle.
Our most common weapon against ticks & mosquitoes is our traditional barrier spray. Our highly trained technicians spray your entire property, paying especially close attention to shaded cool areas where ticks like to hide. Tick spray eliminates 85-90% of ticks on contact and the special time-release formula continues to work for up to 3 weeks. Sign up for the season and we’ll automatically come back every 2-3 weeks for continuous tick control all season long.
Tick tubes are an important treatment method for long term tick control. With adult deer ticks questing for their next blood meal even in winter months, tick tubes are important to lowering the tick population year round. Tick tubes are actually cardboard tube stuffed with treated cotton. That cotton is in turn taken back to the dens of rodents where they use it for nesting materials. When larvae ticks latch on to these mice for their blood meal, they are carried back to the den where the treated cotton kills ticks on contact. This method of tick control is especially effective because it eliminates ticks before they are infected before they look for human hosts and before they can become egg-laying adults.
In addition to our professional mosquito control services, we urge you to always follow the 6 C’s of tick control to limit the attractiveness of your property to the tick population.
