Wenham tick control

You know what ticks us off? TICKS! Here in New England, the word “tick” is practically synonymous with Lyme disease. 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.

Perhaps most disconcerting is that the CDC outwardly admits that nearly 80% of vector control organizations need improvement in at least one or more of five core competencies, such as testing for pesticide resistance or even having an action plan to kill mosquitoes and ticks at every life stage. What this means is this: don’t rely on the government to help you if you get bitten by an infected tick or mosquito.

If the government isn’t fully prepared to protect its citizens from mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses, is there anything a private citizen can do? Absolutely. That’s where Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts comes in. Our Wenham tick control is guaranteed to be nearly 90% effective for up to three weeks at a time, just like our mosquito control. When it comes to Wenham tick control, we have a dual-phase process 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 isn’t equipped to protect you and your family from ticks and mosquitoes, you can.

Phase One in our Wenham tick control

We start off but employing the same barrier treatment as we do for mosquitoes in your yard, treating your entire property from the perimeter inward with our EPA-registered, micro encapsulated formula. This knocks down both mosquitoes and ticks on contact and adheres to everything it was sprayed upon, gradually releasing its active ingredients for nearly three weeks. So, whenever a new mosquito or tick encounters it, it’s also eliminated. When concentrating on ticks, we give extra attention to areas that are known tick territory, such as tall grassy areas and leaf piles. It also prevents eggs from hatching, which helps in stopping the tick population life cycle in your yard.

But we don’t stop there.

Phase Two in our Wenham tick control

While other outdoor pest control companies leave it at that — a simple tick spray treatment, Mosquito Squad is committed to making sure we stop ticks at every life stage, no matter what. Which is why, in addition to our barrier treatment, we implement tick tubes, which are a clever way to battle ticks at younger life stages. Tick tubes are biodegradable tubes that are very small and stuffed with permethrin-treated cotton, which are strategically placed around your yard to entice mice and other small critters such as squirrels. These critters bring the cotton back to their nests and burrow to make them nice and cozy. Permethrin is a mild insecticide that is harmless to animals but lethal to bugs. As it happens, ticks in their younger life stages, larva or nymph, usually find their blood meal with these animals. So, when the mice, squirrels, or other small animal brings this cotton back to their nest, the permethrin rubs off on their fur. Whenever a young tick would try to get their blood meal, they would be eliminated shortly thereafter. It’s a very smart “straight to the source” strategy that we employ in addition to our barrier treatment. By taking a two-phase approach, we can guarantee elimination of nearly (or more than) 90% of ticks on your property for up to three weeks at a time.

Prefer to stay on the “greener” side? No problem.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are registered with the EPA, but we know there are some people who are much more comfortable with going “green.” That is why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment based on essential oils, and still mix in-house.

It’s not an eliminator of bugs but a repellant, which means that the scent confuses them and “chases” them out of your yard. Most customers who go with our all-natural treatment report a reduction in yard pests by around 80%. Though it’s also a time-released solution, its botanical makeup breaks down slightly faster than our traditional barrier treatment, therefore we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
