The best way to protect yourself from ticks and the diseases they carry is to avoid ticks all together. While Mosquito Squad can’t help you when you’re out in the woods, at home is a different story. Our Newburyport tick control is guaranteed to eliminate up to 90% of the adult ticks in your yard for nearly three week straight — or your money back. And because we’re serious about keeping you safe, Mosquito Squad goes above and beyond to help halt the life cycle of the tick population in your yard all together by implementing a two-step process.
We start with a traditional barrier spray treatment, just like we do for mosquitoes. Our barrier treatment formula works not just on mosquitoes, but ticks and other biting bugs, as well. We start from the perimeter of your yard and work our way inward, but when concentrating specifically on ticks, we give extra attention to the places they like to hide, like tall grasses, woodpiles, and leaf piles. These are areas they like to hang out and hitch a ride off any unsuspecting passers by to get their blood meal. We’re in the business of making sure that’s not you or anybody you love.
The next step in our Newburyport tick control process involves a little help from our furry friends, the common mice in your yard. We strategically place small, biodegradable tubes around your yard called tick tubes. These are stuffed with cotton treated with permethrin, a mild insecticide. The mice love to use this cotton as nesting material, so when they take the cotton back to their homes, the permethrin rubs all over their fur. Ticks in their younger stages (especially deer ticks, the ones responsible for Lyme) are more likely to find their blood meal from mice than deer, believe it or not. When a tick tries to attack one of these mice that has the chemical on their fur, it quickly dies. Not to worry — permethrin is harmless to the mice.
By eliminating ticks in their younger stages, we’re able to halt the life cycle of the tick population in your yard in the longer term, and you’ll feel much safer spending time outside at home!

We get it. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we know there are some people who are still uneasy about using a synthetic barrier spray treatment. That’s why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment solution that is essential-oil based, which we still mix in-house.
This barrier treatment acts the same as our traditional barrier spray at first but eliminating bugs upon initial application, but after it dries (about 30 minutes) it then acts as a repellant, “chasing” the bugs out of your yard. Still highly effective, most homeowners who elect the all-natural barrier spray notice around 80% reduction in bugs. Our all-natural solution is also time-released, but because of its botanical makeup it breaks down a little faster than the traditional treatment, so we recommend re-application every two weeks instead of three. It’s easy being green with Mosquito Squad!
