Mosquito Squad has your Boxford MA tick control covered

If you live in Massachusetts, you already know that Lyme disease is a big problem here. What you might not be aware of, however, is that Lyme has actually been around for about 60,000 years. Only in the past 40 years or so has it occurred in modern humans. While things like that are good when you do trivia games, it doesn’t diminish the fact that Lyme disease is a serious issue here in the Northeast.. In 2015, it was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. According to, there were 4,734 cases of Lyme disease in Essex County between 2000-2016, but those are only the reported cases. Actual number are estimated to be ten times that, more like around 47,374 cases. That’s a lot of Lyme in one county.

But don’t think that Lyme disease is the only tick-borne illness we need to worry about. It just happens to be the most well-known, especially around here. There are many more tick-borne diseases on the rise, including one called Powassan, that New England Public Radio has been reporting on, as well as other sources such as CNN and Wired magazine. The CDC recently released a report saying that since 2004, diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled.

That’s pretty scary stuff. But not to worry — Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts has you covered. Our traditional barrier treatment that we developed to eliminate mosquitoes also eliminates ticks on contact by up to 90%. But for our Boxford MA tick control, we go beyond our barrier treatment and go straight to the source with our double-duty tick elimination strategy.

Boxford MA tick control: Step One

Much like our traditional mosquito barrier spray, we treat your entire yard from the perimeter inward. While we’re careful to avoid bee-friendly plants like flowers, we definitely cover all foliage, undersides of leaves, patios, decks (above and beneath), garden gnomes, wood piles, etc. We give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where ticks like to hang out, waiting for their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure it’s not you or anyone you love!

Since our formula is designed to be time-released, any tick, mosquito, or other annoying biting bug that encounters it will also be eliminated for as long as three weeks after application. Our barrier treatment formula has been proven to be up to 90% effective at eliminating bugs on contact.

Then we move on to round two.

Round Two in your Boxford MA tick control

Here’s where we go “straight to the source.” We deploy tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with permethrin-treated cotton that we strategically place around your property. Mice and other small animals love these, because they take the cotton back to their burrows/nests for bedding. The permethrin rubs off on their fur, and when a tick decides to attack one of these small animals, guess what happens? No more tick, as it’s eliminated shortly thereafter. By employing this extra step, we’re getting rid of these dangerous little suckers before they come anywhere near you or your loved ones, and ensuring tick population reduction by up to 95%.

Prefer an all-natural solution?

We can do that. While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, we also know that some people prefer to be as “green” as possible. That’s why we developed a special all-natural barrier treatment, based on essential oils. While it’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, it’s still highly effective, as most customers who use the all-natural method notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. It’s also a time-released solution, but because of its botanical makeup, we recommend retreating every two weeks with this one instead of the three that the traditional barrier treatment would need.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Mosquito Squad firmly believes in and stands behind all its services and products, but if there’s any reason you’re not happy, we’re not happy, either. So let us know, and we’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back. We’re in the business of repelling and eliminating insects, not customers. But smart customers do their research before deciding on a service, so we encourage you to click the Google graphic in the right sidebar to read nearly 200 reviews from local homeowners who have used our services in the past.
