Saugus tick control

Know what sucks more than ticks? Nothing. Seriously. In May 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released an alarming report that indicated vector-borne diseases more than tripled since 2004. Perhaps more alarming is that ticks were responsible for about 77% of those, with Lyme disease accounting for 82% of all tick-borne disease reports. While those numbers are disturbing enough, the the rate of tick-borne diseases in Massachusetts alone puts us as #3 in number of tick-borne diseases in the nation.

That’s enough to make anyone want to sequester themselves inside and never want to go outside again. But we don’t want you to do that, and it’s safe to say you probably don’t, either.

There is a better way to protect yourself and your family from ticks and tick-borne diseases, and that’s with Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts. As it happens, our traditional barrier spray treatment that we use for mosquitoes also eliminates ticks on your property by up to 90%, but we take an extra step to make sure these little bloodsuckers don’t come anywhere near you or your loved ones on your property, and eliminate them at every stage of their life cycle.

Saugus tick control, phase one

The first phase of our Saugus MA tick control is the same as our traditional mosquito barrier spray treatment — we treat your property from the perimeter inward, applying our EPA-registered formula on everything except flowers and other bee-friendly plants. We cover it all — bushes, decks and beneath them, leaves, trees, woodpiles, garden gnomes, you name it. For ticks, we concentrate even more on tall grassy areas and places like leaf piles, because that’s prime tick territory. You’re mostly to find them in those places breeding, resting, and waiting to hitch a ride on the next tasty meal that walks by. Mosquito Squad is in the business of making sure that’s not you.

Since our formula is micro encapsulated, it’s time-released, meaning you’ll be protected from ticks (and other biting bugs) for up to three weeks at a time. It’s odorless and colorless, and adheres to everything it’s applied to, therefore it prevents existing tick eggs from hatching. This is ideal in stopping the life cycle of the tick population in your yard. Just like with mosquito barrier treatment, we recommend reapplication every three weeks for maximum efficiency. Don’t worry, we offer seasonal plans so you don’t forget to reschedule, and we’ll always call a day in advance to remind you that we’re coming.

But then, we move onto the next step in our Saugus tick control.

Phase Two of our Saugus tick control — a.k.a. “the bonus round”

If you do your research online, you’ll see that other outdoor pest control companies stop at a spray when it comes to ticks. Not Mosquito Squad. We take it a step further and use the help of the common field mouse, who is a cute, innocent, and very stealthy “helper” in our fight against ticks. Contrary to their name, “deer ticks” actually pick up things like Lyme disease not from deer, but most often from mice, bunnies, and other small critters who call your and your neighbors’ yards home. This usually happens when ticks are in their larva or nymph stage of life. So we strategically place these small, biodegradable tubes called “tick tubes” in places they frequent.

Tick tubes are stuffed with cotton that is treated with a mild insecticide called permethrin, which is harmless to the small animals but lethal to ticks. The idea is (and this works impressively well) that the mice or other small mammal finds this cotton and brings it back to their nest to cozy it up. In doing so, the permethrin rubs off on their fur, and when a young tick attempts to get its blood meal from one of these animals, it encounters the chemical and is eliminated shortly thereafter. This “straight to the source” approach allows Mosquito Squad to get rid of ticks in all stages of life and thus, halt their life cycle in your yard, ensuring 90% or more tick elimination overall for your Saugus tick control.

Our all-natural, botanical option

While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we also offer an all-natural tick treatment solution for those of us who prefer to stay as “green” as possible. We developed this formula with essential oils as a base, that we still mix in-house.

This barrier treatment solution eliminates pests on contact, but then repels pests instead of eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional barrier treatment, but it’s still pretty powerful — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests by about 80%. Also a time-released formula, this all-natural approach lasts for up to two weeks before needing reapplication.
