Your North Reading Tick Control Experts

If you live in New England, you’re likely aware that Lyme disease is a pretty big thing here. So big, in fact, that in 2015 it was a officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. Between 2000-2015, there were 8366 reported cases of Lyme in Middlesex County alone.

But that nasty tick-borne illness isn’t the only one we need to be wary of. While there are many other scary diseases that ticks can transmit, for some reason, Babesiosis seems to be a hotspot for Middlesex County. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a few helpful videos about what to do if you get bitten by a tick and how to protect yourself from them, but do you even want to worry about that possibility to begin with?

That’s when you call Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts. We’re not just your residential mosquito control specialists, we’re your North Reading tick control experts as well. The same specially formulated barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes also eliminates adult ticks and fleas by up to 95%.. But the dangers of disease-infected ticks are nothing to take lightly, which is why we go out of our way to protect you and your loved ones from tick-borne illnesses with a special two-step process.

Step One in our North Reading Tick Control

The first thing we do is follow the same barrier treatment process we use for our mosquito control, by treating the perimeter of your yard and working our way inward. We use our special, micro encapsulated formula to treat surfaces like shrubbery and other foliage while taking special care to avoid blooming plants like flowers. We even treat areas such as patios and under decks. But with our North Reading tick control, we give extra attention to the tall grassy areas, because that’s where ticks are most likely to be hanging out, resting, breeding, and waiting for their next blood meal.

Because our formula is time-released, it will keep on working for up to 21 days after it’s distributed, which helps in both eliminating ticks on contact and preventing tick eggs from hatching, thus halting the next generation of these gross bugs before it starts. We recommend treating your property every three weeks for season-long protection.

North Reading Tick Control – Step Two

This is what we call our “going straight to the source” strategy. Babesiosis, Lyme disease, and other tick-borne illnesses are transmitted by deer ticks and others, and not all ticks are infected. But you don’t really know if you’ve been bitten by an infected tick until it happens and you become ill. Is that a gamble anybody wants to take?

That’s why we employ tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes we place strategically around your yard. They are stuffed with a treated cotton that entice mice to bring back to their nests. When a tick bites one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly afterward. This extra, proactive step Mosquito Squad takes for your North Reading tick control helps eliminate the tick population in your yard by up to 90%. This method gets rid of ticks at their very source, before they come anywhere near people or pets.

Our All-Natural Tick Control Method

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, but we’re aware that some people prefer to be more “green” than others. If you’re one of those folks, we also offer an all-natural solution for your North Reading tick control, which we developed with essential oils at its base. It’s not as much of a tick eliminator as it is a repellant, but it’s still highly effective. Most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also a time-released formula, this approach lasts for up to two weeks before needing reapplication, only a week less than our traditional barrier treatment.

Mosquito Squad Guarantees 100% Satisfaction

We are so confident in the effectiveness of our products and services that if you aren’t completely satisfied for any reason, let us know. We’ll either re-treat your property or offer your money back.
