Danvers MA tick control

Here in the Northeast, when we hear “ticks” we automatically thinkLyme disease. The two are practically synonymous, sadly. When the CDC released its report in May 2018 that said stating that diseases from mosquitoes and ticks have more than tripled in the United States since 2004, it was hardly a surprise for officials in Massachusetts, who have known the rate was steadily increasing. In fact, Boston.com says that tick-borne diseases are of much bigger concern and prevalence in our state than mosquito-borne diseases, although we must be vigilant about both.

What the most unsettling thing about the CDC report, however, is that the CDC plainly admits that 80% of government vector-control organizations are not prepared to deal with this new onslaught of vector-borne diseases. If there are any doubts, all one has to do is go to the Town of Danvers’ website and do a search — you won’t find the word “ticks” mentioned anywhere. Not even on their pest management page.

So if our local government (let alone state or federal) isn’t prepared to protect us from ticks and the diseases they carry, what can we do? Call Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts. Our Danvers MA tick control is nearly 90% effective for up to 21 days, just like our mosquito control, and we have a special tactic that we implement that eliminates ticks even in their younger stages so that they don’t come anywhere near you or your loved ones, two-legged or four.

How our Danvers MA tick control works

We start with a barrier treatment spray, just as we would when treating for mosquitoes. This eliminates about 90% of adult ticks on contact. When we’re concentrating on eliminating ticks, we give extra attention to places they like to hide, like tall grassy areas, woodpiles, leaf piles, and generally anywhere they can hitch a ride on an unsuspecting passers-by.

The next step in our Danvers MA tick control is by strategically placing these small biodegradable tubes (aptly named “tick tubes”) around your yard. Tick tubes are stuffed with cotton that is treated with permethrin, a mild insecticide. The cotton lures mice and other small mammals like bunnies and squirrels, who use it to cozy up their nests and burrows.

Contrary to their name, deer ticks (or black-legged ticks), the ones responsible for Lyme disease and a couple others, most often become infected when they feed off one of these small critters (not deer) during their larva or nymph stages. When the animal brings the cotton back to their nest, the permethrin rubs all over their fur, and when a tick attempts to feed off one of them, it is eliminated. Not to worry — our furry friends are not affected by the chemical, they end up being stealthy little helpers. The result is halting the life cycle of ticks in your yard to reduce their population drastically.

Prefer an all-natural barrier treatment approach?

We get it. All of our products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some folks that are still nervous about synthetics and prefer to go “green” as much as possible. That’s why Mosquito Squad offers an all-natural barrier treatment solution that we mix in-house with essential oils at its base.

Like the traditional barrier treatment, it eliminates bugs on contact, but after it dries, acts as a repellant and “chases” them off your property. Most customers who elect our all-natural approach notice a reduction in yard pests by around 80%. Also a time-released formula, its botanical makeup means it breaks down slightly faster, so we recommend additional treatments every two weeks instead of three. It’s easy being green with Mosquito Squad!
