Mosquito Squad is your Bedford MA tick control headquarters

Though tiny, ticks are scary little critters can have some serious impact if an infected one bites you or your loved ones, whether they have two logs or four. If you live here, you likely know that Lyme disease is a big problem all over New England. According to WBUR, there were there were 779 cases of Lyme disease in Middlesex County in 2016 alone. (That’s the most of any other county in the state.) But Lyme isn’t the only tick-borne illness we need to watch out for — there are many other tick-borne illnesses we need to watch out for, including Babseiosis, which again, is more concentrated in Middlesex County than anywhere else in the state.

To put it bluntly — ticks are no joke.

While Bedford MA is a part of the Middlesex Tick Task Force, that website basically tells you what to do after you get bitten by a tick. The Town of Bedford has a section about ticks and tick-related diseases on their website, but it’s just a bunch of links to elsewhere and some PDF downloads. Recently, Bedford Wicked local ran a piece with a few helpful tips on how to prevent tick-borne illnesses, but how about taking a more vigilant approach and getting rid of them where you spend the most time — your own yard — all together?

That’s when you call the pros at Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts.

Not only is Mosquito Squad your local mosquito elimination authority, we’re also your Bedford MA tick control headquarters. It just so happens that the same barrier spray treatment we use for mosquito control also eliminates adult and ticks and fleas. Our tick control treatment is extremely effective — it can eliminate up to 95% 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 something to take seriously and we and we want to get rid of ticks before they come anywhere near people.

The process: How our Bedford MA tick control works

The first thing we do is for Bedford MA tick control is treat the perimeter of your yard and work our way inward, just like our traditional barrier treatment. We make sure to treat all foliage while avoiding flowers, plus surfaces around and underneath patios and decks. But for ticks, we give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where they usually hide out — breeding, resting, and well, waiting for dinner. It’s our job to make sure you’re not on the menu!

Since our barrier treatment formula is time released, it eliminates ticks, mosquitoes, and other creepy-crawlies for three weeks before needing reapplication. This way it also prevents future ticks by stopping their eggs from hatching, which halts their next generation.

Next is the tick control “bonus round"

Lyme Disease and other tick-vectored illnesses are usually caused by bacteria transmitted by the deer tick, but there are other ticks and diseases to worry about 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.

What are tick tubes? They’re small tubes made of biodegradable material that are filled with cotton treated with a solution that is fatal to ticks. They’re very attractive to mice, who find these and carry some of the cotton underground to make their burrows nice and cozy. When a tick bites one of these mice, it’s 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 they destroy the tick population before they’re able to multiply or come anywhere near people or pets.

If you prefer to stay as “green” as possible. . .

We do offer an all-natural solution. While all of Mosquito Squads products are EPA-registered, we also get that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green." That’s why we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution for your unwanted pests. Based on natural oils, this more “crunchy” approach focuses more on repelling these little nuisances than eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control solution, but it’s pretty darn close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also time-released, this application is recommended to be repeated every two weeks, instead of the traditional three.
