According to the CDC, in 2014, Massachusetts had the 2nd highest rate of Lyme disease in the Nation with 3,646 confirmed cases and another 1,658 probable ones. This statistic makes year-round tick control in our area a must. Mosquito Squad of the North Shore would like to provide you with the tools to keep your yard, home, and family safe from ticks and lower your risk of becoming infected with the diseases they carry.
Most people tend to believe that ticks appear in Spring. That is correct, nymph ticks that have molted from larval phase over winter do emerge in Spring looking for their first blood meal. This leaves them searching for you, your pets, and your family. What many people don’t realize is that ticks can thrive in the cold weather of the northeast. These nymphs will develop into adult stage and continue to feed throughout the winter, as long as the ground is not frozen. At Mosquito Squad of the North Shore we work to eliminate ticks in your yard on contact, but also to make a break in the life cycle of the tick population with our Tick Tube System, protecting your yard year round.
The Tick Tube System
Tick tubes are filled with a treated cotton that mice and other small mammals pull out and use for nesting. The larva and nymph ticks live in these nests. This treated material eliminates ticks in their early stages without hurting the mice. We strategically place these tubes around your property twice a year, stopping ticks from ever making it to your yard as adults.
Tick Barrier Control
Our second form of tick defense is our barrier spray. Our trained technicians spray a time-released formula throughout your yard every 2-3 weeks all season long, eliminating ticks, on contact. These combined methods will eliminate 85-90% of all ticks in your yard and help to stop the growth process for future seasons.
