Mosquito Squad Helps Protect From Lyme disease, Other Illnesses With North Andover Tick Control

If you live in Massachusetts, you’re at least aware that Lyme disease is prevalent here. But did you know that North Andover has had more cases of Lyme disease than anywhere else in the region in recent years? Our town, for some reason, seems to be a hotspot for Lyme-carrying ticks. But ticks carry more than just Lyme disease. There are many dangerous tick-borne illnesses in Massachusetts to be wary of, such as the rare, but dangerous Powassan virus and Babesiosis, which is dangerous to both humans and dogs.

The Massachusetts Heath Department has some general information about tick-borne diseases and how to check yourself for ticks, but wouldn’t you feel safer avoiding these little monsters all together?

That’s where we come in. Not only is Mosquito Squad your local mosquito control authority, but we’re also your North Andover tick control specialists. The same specially-formulated barrier treatment that we use to eliminate up to 90% of the mosquitoes in your yard also eliminates up to 95% of adult ticks and fleas on contact. But when it comes to these little suckers, we have a two-step approach to protect you and your loved ones (including the furry ones) from potentially dangerous tick-borne diseases.

How North Andover Tick Control Works — Step One

Following the same process as we do for our mosquito barrier treatment, we start from the perimeter of your yard and work our way inward, treating all the foliage, shrubbery (not anything blooming like flowers, though), and areas like patios and under decks. For ticks, we give extra attention to tall grassy areas, because that’s where they’re known to hang out and rest, breed, and wait for their next blood meal. We don’t want it to be you or anyone else that might be in your yard.

Our barrier treatment formula is time-released, which means that even after it eliminates mosquitoes and ticks on contact, it keeps on working for up to three weeks. That way, it prevents the eggs of future ticks from hatching and thus, stops the next tick generation before it even starts.

Step Two in Our Tick Control Strategy — We go straight to the source.

Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses are transmitted by deer ticks and other tick species. Not all ticks carry diseases, but the best strategy is to err on the safe side. That’s why we also employ tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes filled with treated cotton. We strategically place these around your property in areas that small animals, such as mice, find them and bring the cotton back to build their nests. When ticks attack these small animals, they’re eliminated shortly thereafter. This is extra, proactive step we take eliminates the tick population in your yard by up to 90%. This method of North Andover tick control is stops the ticks at their source, before they come anywhere near you or your family.

If You Prefer an All-Natural Method. . .

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, we understand that there are some people who want to stay as “green” as possible. That’s why we also have an all-natural barrier treatment formula, which is based on essential oils. This formula acts less like an eliminator and more like a repellant that essentially “chases” the bugs away. While it’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier treatment, it’s still pretty good — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also time-released, this all-natural approach lasts for up to two weeks before needing reapplication, instead of the three that the traditional method would need.
