Methuen tick control

You know what ticks us off? TICKS! 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, it’s just the most common. 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.

Perhaps most disturbing of the whole report 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. What this means is this: don’t rely on the government to help you if you get bitten by an infected tick or mosquito.

So if the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its citizens from mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses, what can a private citizen do? That’s where Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts,comes in. Our Methuen tick control is guaranteed to be nearly 90% effective for three weeks at a time, just like our mosquito control. And with our Methuen tick control, we take it a step further to make sure ticks don’t go anywhere near you and your family. With these two steps, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that while the government can’t protect you and your family from ticks and mosquitoes, you can.

How our Methuen tick control works, the first step:

The first thing we do is perform a traditional barrier treatment around your yard, just like we do for mosquitoes. That means distributing our barrier spray all over your yard, working fro the perimeter inward. For ticks, we give extra attention to places they’re known to be, like tall grassy areas and woodpiles. Our EPA-registered formula will knock down the adults and because it’s a residual, time-released solution, and will continue to eliminate them for up to three weeks. So, if a tick finds its way into your yard by hitching a ride on say, a squirrel, once that tick encounters anything that was sprayed with our odorless, colorless solution, it’ll be eliminated shortly afterward. Whether it’s a leaf, a wood chip, a bush, or even a lawn ornament — it doesn’t matter. Any exposure to our solution will eliminate the tick.

But we then go on to the next step, which is what we call “the bonus round.”

Methuen tick control, step two

Whereas other outdoor pest control companies stop at a spray, Mosquito Squad goes the extra mile to ensure younger ticks don’t mature into full-blown adult ticks. Here’s where we strategically place tick tubes around your property. These are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a treated cotton that lure field mice, which are usually the source of the blood meal for ticks in their earlier stages of life. Mice like to take this cotton back to their nests, and when they do, the chemical on the cotton (permethrin) rubs off on their fur. While it’s harmless to the mice, any tick that tries to take a bite out of one of these mice will be eliminated shortly thereafter. By using tick tubes and mice as helpers, we’re able to halt the life cycle of these little vampires in your yard, thus drastically reducing their population in your yard by nearly 90%. As we mentioned, each barrier treatment generally lasts for about 21 days before needing reapplication.

For continuous, uninterrupted summers, Mosquito Squad offers seasonal plans. This way you never have to remember to make additional appointments, and we’ll always call and confirm with you that we’re coming 24 hours in advance. But you don’t need be home when we treat — we’ll leave a confirmation notice on your door when we leave. Here’s to tick-free summers!

Prefer to take the all-natural route? No problem.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who are much more comfortable with going “green.” That 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.
