Don’t Gamble With Your Andover MA Tick Control — Call the Experts at Mosquito Squad

Here in New England, the word “tick” is practically synonymous with Lyme disease. It’s so bad here that it was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts in 2015. And while everybody wants to be No. 1 at something, Andover leading the region in Lyme disease cases isn’t exactly anything anybody wants to brag about around here.

But ticks are more than just Lyme disease carriers, though that’s the most well-known tick-borne illness in these parts. There are actually much more serious things one can catch from infected ticks, such as the rare Powassan virus, which is indeed present in our state. Then there’s Babesiosis, which is dangerous to both humans and dogs. You can even get paralysis from a tick bite. The list goes on. The gist, though, is that ticks are nothing to mess around with.

The Massachusetts Health Department has some general information about ticks and tick-borne illnesses and how to check yourself for ticks which is good information to have, but wouldn’t you rather avoid these little suckers all together?

Knowing there are so many dangerous tick-borne diseases out there can be enough to make one not want to go outside at all. But nobody should live like a hermit because of this. While we always encourage tick safety precautions, there’s definitely a way to enjoy the outdoors without becoming a total shut-in. Here at Mosquito Squad, we want to at least make sure you feel safe in your own yard. There is definitely a way to avoid ticks, and that starts with us.

As it turns out, our time-released traditional barrier spray that we specially developed to eliminate mosquitoes by 90% also works to eliminate up to up to 95% of adult ticks and fleas on contact. But Mosquito Squad takes it to another level when it comes to ticks, because the safety of you and your loved ones is our top priority. And simply . . . because we can.

Step One in Our Andover MA Tick Control

We start off with our Andover MA tick control the same way we do with our mosquito barrier treatment — we treat your entire property from the perimeter inward, covering all surfaces including decks (including the underside of them), rocks, landscaping, wood piles, garden gnomes, and foliage (avoiding flowers, of course). We give extra special attention to the areas where ticks like to hang out, such as tall grassy areas, where they’re usually breeding, resting, and well . . . waiting for dinner. It’s our job to make sure you’re not on the menu.

Our barrier spray is time released, which means it eliminates ticks, mosquitoes, and other biting insects on contact and keeps on working for three weeks, because it sticks to whatever we spray it on. That way, it prevents mosquito and tick eggs from hatching and further populating your yard, while also acting as a “force field” that eliminates any new bugs that encounter it.

But we don’t stop there.

Andover MA Tick Control: Step Two

While it’s true that not all ticks are carriers of scary diseases, the only way to know which ones are and aren’t carriers is after you’re bitten, and then you wait to see if you get any symptoms. Why take that gamble at all? That’s why Mosquito Squad prefers to err on the safe side and use a proactive approach in the tactic of tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a treated cotton that we strategically place around you yard. Mice and other small animals love this stuff and bring it back to their nests/burrows to make them nice and cozy. When a tick decides to make a meal out of one of these small animals, it is eliminated shortly afterward. It’s with this strategy that we go “straight to the source” and get rid of these little monsters before they come anywhere near you, your family, or pets. By using this two-step Andover MA tick control strategy, we’re able to eliminate the tick population in your yard by up to 90%.

If You’re More Into The “Greener" Way of Life. . .

. . . we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment. All of our products are EPA registered, but we understand there are some people who want to be as eco-friendly as possible. Not a problem. Mosquito Squad specially developed an 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.
