Turn to the experts at Mosquito Squad for your Reading MA tick control

If you live in Middlesex County, you’re likely aware that Lyme disease is a big problem here. What you might not be aware of, however, is that Lyme has actually been around for about 60,000 years. Only in the past 40 years or so has it manifested itself in modern humans. While trivia like that is nice to know, it doesn’t diminish the fact that Lyme disease is a serious issue here in New England. In 2015, it was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. According to, there were 8,395 cases of Lyme disease in Middlesex County between 2000-2016, the most of anywhere else in our state. But please don’t think that Lyme disease is the only tick-borne illness we need to worry about. It just happens to be the “most popular.” There are many more tick-borne diseases on the rise, including one called Powassan, that New England Public Radio has been reporting on, as well as other sources such as CNN and Wired magazine.

So what’s a person to do? There is the Middlesex Tick Task Force, but not only is their website outdated, it only gives information about what to do after you get bitten by a tick. Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about what to do after a tick bite? How about . . . not getting bitten by a tick at all?

That’s why Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts is here. We’d rather you not have to worry about what happens after you get bitten by a tick. It’s our preference (and we’re sure yours, too) that you don’t get bitten by one in the first place. Your safety and the safety of your loved ones is our top priority, and the best way to avoid dangerous tick-borne diseases is to avoid ticks all together.

Mosquito Squad’s traditional barrier treatment that we developed to eliminate mosquitoes also eliminates ticks on contact by up to 90%. But for our Reading MA tick control, we go beyond our barrier treatment and straight to the source with our two-step tick elimination strategy.

Reading MA tick control: Step One

Much like our traditional mosquito barrier spray, we treat your entire yard starting at the perimeter, working our way inward. While we’re careful to avoid flowers and other bee-friendly plants, we definitely cover all foliage, undersides of leaves, patios, decks (above and beneath), garden gnomes, wood piles, etc. We’re especially vigilant on treating any tall grassy areas, because that’s where ticks like to hang out, waiting for their next dinner. It’s our job to make sure it’s not you or anyone you love!

Since our formula is designed to be time-released, any tick, mosquito, or other annoying yard pest that encounters it will also be eliminated for as long as three weeks after application. Our barrier treatment formula has been proven to be up to 90% effective at eliminating yard pests on contact.

Be we don’t stop there.

Step Two in your Reading MA tick control

Here’s where we go “straight to the source.” We implement tick tubes, which are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with treated cotton that we strategically place around your property. Mice and other small animals love these, because they take the cotton back to their burrows/nests and get cozy. But when a tick decides to attack one of these small animals, guess what happens? No more tick, as it’s eliminated shortly thereafter. By employing this extra step, we’re getting rid of these dangerous little buggers before they come anywhere near you or your loved ones, and ensuring tick population reduction by up to 95%.

If you prefer an all-natural alternative . . .

We can definitely accommodate. While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, we also know that some people prefer to be as “green” as possible. That’s why we developed a special all-natural barrier treatment, based on essential oils. While it’s more of a repellant than an eliminator, it’s still highly effective, as most customers who use the all-natural method notice a reduction in yard pests by up to 80%. It’s also a time-released solution, but we recommend retreating every two weeks with this one instead of the three that the traditional barrier treatment would need.
