Georgetown MA tick control

Ticks really suck. Literally. And 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. But Lyme disease isn’t even the worst of tick-borne diseases — in May 2018 the CDC released a report stating that diseases from ticks and mosquitoes more than tripled since 2004, and there’s no indication that rate is slowing down.

What’s worse is that the CDC outwardly admits that nearly 80% of vector control organizations need improvement in at least one or more of five core competencies, such as testing for pesticide resistance or even having an action plan to kill mosquitoes and ticks at every life stage. In a nutshell, don’t rely on the government to help you if you get bitten by an infected tick or mosquito.

While the government isn’t equipped to prevent and control ticks, mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit, you can take things into your own hands as a homeowner. With Mosquito Squad’s tick control service, you can ensure your own personal Georgetown MA tick control at home on your own property, thus drastically decreasing the chances of anyone in your family of contracting a tick-borne illness. We attack ticks at every life stage in a multi-phase method, guaranteeing nearly 90% reduction in the tick population in your yard for up to three weeks at a time, or your money back.

Phase One in our Georgetown MA tick control

We start off by employing the same barrier treatment as we do for mosquitoes in your yard, treating your entire property from the perimeter inward with our EPA-registered, micro encapsulated formula. This knocks down both mosquitoes and ticks on contact and adheres to everything it was sprayed upon, gradually releasing its active ingredients for nearly three weeks. So, whenever a new mosquito or tick encounters it, it’s also eliminated. But with ticks, we give extra attention to areas that are known tick territory, such as tall grassy areas and leaf piles. It also prevents eggs from hatching, which helps in stopping the tick population life cycle in your yard.

But then we move on to Phase Two, which we like to call “the bonus round.”

Phase Two in our Georgetown MA tick control

Whereas many outdoor pest control companies would pack up and call it a day after administering a barrier spray, we like to focus on going “straight to the source” of where ticks in their younger life stages usually get their blood meals, and a large percentage of that source is mice and other small critters. So we entice them with tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with permethrin-treated cotton. This chemical is a mild insecticide that is harmless to the animals yet lethal to ticks. When mice, squirrels, or other small animals find the cotton and bring it back to cozy up their nests or burrows, the permethrin rubs off on their fur. Then, when a tick, regardless of whether it’s in a nymph or other stage of its life, tries to get its blood meal from one of these animals, it is eliminated shortly after coming into contact with it. Tick tubes are an amazingly effective way of halting the life cycle of ticks in your yard and ensuring they never come anywhere near you or you family to potentially make them sick.

Looking for something more natural?

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who insist on nothing short of 100% “green.” Which is why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment based on essential oils, and still mix in-house.

It’s not an eliminator of bugs but a repellant, which means that the scent confuses them and “chases” them out of your yard. Most customers who go with our all-natural treatment report a reduction in yard pests by around 80%. Though it’s also a time-released solution, its botanical makeup breaks down slightly faster than our traditional barrier treatment, therefore we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
