Protect your family with our South Hamilton MA tick control

You likely know that in all of the Northeast, Lyme disease is a huge problem here. But there’s another, much worse tick-vectored illness on the rise, Powassan virus. In fact, the CDC recently reported that diseases from both ticks and mosquitoes have more than tripled since 2004. The CDC is really driving home the importance of being tick-aware lately, even ruining poppyseed muffins for us. In this report, the CDC also quite plainly states that about 80% of vector control organizations lack critical prevention and control capabilities.

So if the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its citizens from mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses, what can a private citizen do? Call Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts, that’s what! Our South Hamilton tick control is guaranteed to be nearly 90% effective for three weeks at a time, just like our mosquito control. And with our tick control, we take it a step further to make sure ticks don’t go anywhere near you and your family. With these two steps, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that while the government can’t protect you and your family from ticks and mosquitoes, you can.

Step One in our S Hamilton MA tick control process

We start with the same process as our mosquito control traditional mosquito barrier treatment, treating the perimeter of your yard with our EPA-registered formula on all surfaces except flowers, and work our way inward. We treat bushes, trees, the undersides of leaves, woodpiles, on and under decks . . . basically everywhere. If you have any tall, grassy areas in your yard, we’ll give those special attention, because that’s primary tick territory. It’s where they’re most likely to be found, resting, breeding, and waiting to hitch a ride on their next blood meal. It’s our job to make sure that’s not you or your loved ones, two legs or four.

Since our formula is micro encapsulated and therefore time-released, you’ll be protected from ticks (and mosquitoes, and other biting bugs) for up to 21 days. And since it adheres to everything it’s applied to, it prevents existing tick eggs from hatching, thus stopping the life cycle. Just like our mosquito barrier treatment, we recommend reapplication every three weeks for maximum efficiency.

But then we move onto Step Two.

South Hamilton tick control — Step Two

While Lyme disease is most prevalent here, and while not all ticks carry diseases, the ones that carry Lyme are the deer tick. But contrary to their name, the main blood meal for a nymph deer tick is actually mice. To eliminate ticks in their nymph stage, Mosquito Squad employs a special tactic called tick tubes. These are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with cotton that is treated with permethrin, which is harmless to them but fatal to ticks. These tubes entice mice, who love to take the cotton back to their burrows to get cozy. The permethrin rubs off on their fur, and when a tick tries to attack these mice, it is eliminated shortly afterward. It’s with this proactive measure that we stop ticks at their source so that they don’t come anywhere near you or your loved ones, and is nearly 90% (possibly more) effective at reducing the tick population on your property.

Prefer to stay away from synthetics?

No problem. All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know there are some people who prefer to avoid synthetics all together. Which is why we also offer an all-natural, barrier treatment formula that we developed with essential oils. This formula is more of a repellant than an eliminator, which confuses bugs with its scent and drives them out of your yard.

It has a pleasant botanical scent to people for a few hours after application, but wears off quickly to the human nose. While it’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control treatment, it’s pretty close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Our all-natural formula is also time released, but we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three that our traditional treatment would need.
