Peabody tick control

Nothing sucks more than ticks. These little vampires are gross creepy crawlies who transmit a bunch of terrible diseases, most commonly Lyme disease around here in New England. 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. In Massachusetts specifically, tick-related diseases have exploded to levels never seen before.

What the most unsettling thing about the CDC report, however, is that the CDC plainly admits that 80% of government vector-control organizations are not prepared to deal with this new onslaught of vector-borne diseases. If there are any doubts, all one has to do is go to the City of Peabody’s website on their “Health Department” section, you’ll only find links to elsewhere.

Fortunately, Mosquito Squad picks up the slack where the government falls behind, and with our signature barrier treatment, you’re protected from both mosquitoes and ticks in your yard by nearly 90% for up to 21 days at a time — guaranteed. But if it’s specifically tick protection that you’re looking for, our Peabody tick control goes above and beyond the standard barrier treatment to make sure ticks in every stage of life are eliminated. And we do it by enlisting the help of some furry friends.

How our Peabody tick control works

We start with a barrier treatment spray, just as we would when treating for mosquitoes. This eliminates about 90% of adult ticks on contact. When we’re concentrating on eliminating ticks, we give extra attention to places they like to hide, like tall grassy areas, woodpiles, leaf piles, and generally anywhere they can hitch a ride on an unsuspecting passers-by.

The next step in our Peabody tick control is by strategically placing these small biodegradable tubes (appropriately called “tick tubes”) around your yard. These are stuffed with cotton that is treated with permethrin, a mild insecticide. The cotton lures mice and other small mammals like squirrels and rabbits, who use it to make their nests and burrows more comfortable. Contrary to their name, deer ticks (or black-legged ticks), the ones responsible for Lyme disease and a couple others, most often become infected when they feed off one of these small critters (not deer) during their larva or nymph stages. When the animal brings the cotton back to their nest, the permethrin rubs all over their fur, and when a tick attempts to feed off one of them, it is eliminated. Not to worry — our furry friends are not affected by the chemical, they end up being stealthy little helpers. The result is halting the life cycle of ticks in your yard to reduce their population drastically.

Prefer to stay away from synthetics?

We understand. We do offer an all-natural solution. While all of Mosquito Squads products are EPA-registered, we also get that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green." That’s why we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution for your unwanted pests. Based on natural oils, all-natural approach focuses more on repelling bugs than eliminating them. While not 90% effective as our traditional barrier treatment, it’s close — most customers who elect this option notice a reduction in bugs between 75-80%. Also a time-released formula, this barrier treatment is recommended to be repeated every two weeks, instead of the traditional three.

Guaranteed 100% Satisfaction

Mosquito Squad firmly stands behind its products and services, and we even use them ourselves. But if there’s any reason you’re not satisfied, just let us know. We’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back — no questions asked. We’re in the business of eliminating bugs, not customers! But we know people like to do their research, so so we encourage you to click the button on the right to read over 200 reviews from local homeowners who have used our services in the past.
