Weston MA tick control

For all the benefits of living in New England — the history, the culture, the sports, the overall beauty — it does have some drawbacks. Mainly, the tiny little bloodsucking hitchhikers known as ticks, which are responsible for some terrible diseases, the most common being Lyme disease. Yes, Lyme is everywhere here in the Northeast, as you’re likely already aware. If you haven’t been infected by it, you probably know someone who has. But there are other tick-borne diseases to be wary of, the most common in Massachusetts being anaplasmosis and Babesiosis, the latter being quite common in Middlesex County.

In May 2018, CDC released an alarming report stating that between 2006 and 2016, diseases from ticks and mosquitoes have more than tripled. That’s enough to make anyone want to never go outside again. Though the Town of Weston is a member of the Middlesex Tick Task Force and has some helpful information on their website, such as Lyme disease information and how to landscape your yard to reduce tick exposure, your best defense against ticks and the diseases they carry is to avoid them all together.

With Mosquito Squad’s Weston MA tick control services, the tick population in your yard will be reduced by nearly 90% for up to 21 days straight. We take a two-pronged approach when it comes to ticks, which not only eliminates adult ticks, but also when they’re in their younger, nymphal stages. That way, they won’t come anywhere near you or your family.

How our Weston MA tick control works, Phase One:

The first thing we do is apply our same EPA-registered barrier spray that we use for mosquitoes, which knocks down nearly 90% of adult mosquitoes and ticks. It’s a micro-encapsulated formula, which means that after initial distribution, it will keep on working for up to three weeks, eliminating any new mosquitoes or ticks that encounter its odorless, colorless residue. When we’re specifically treating for ticks, we give extra attention to areas where we know ticks like to hang out waiting to hitch a ride on their next meal — places like tall grassy areas and woodpiles. Our barrier treatment generally takes about 30 minutes to dry, then you can get back to enjoying your yard.

But we don’t stop there.

Weston MA tick control, Phase Two

Whereas other outdoor pest control companies would normally pack up and go home at this point, Mosquito Squad goes the extra mile to ensure ticks are stopped in their tracks. Here’s where we strategically place tick tubes around your property. These are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a treated cotton that lure mice, which are usually the source of the blood meal for ticks in their earlier stages of life. Mice like to take this cotton back to their nests, and when they do, the chemical on the cotton (permethrin) rubs off on their fur. While it’s harmless to the mice, any tick that tries to take a bite out of one of these mice will be eliminated shortly thereafter. By using tick tubes and mice as helpers, we’re able to halt the life cycle of these little vampires in your yard, thus drastically reducing their population in your yard by nearly 90%. As we mentioned, each barrier treatment generally lasts for about 21 days before needing reapplication.

To make things easier for you, we offer seasonal plans for uninterrupted summers at home. We’ll always call a day or two in advance to remind you that we’re coming to give your yard another treatment, but you need not be home. We’ll leave a confirmation of service on your door when we leave. With our strategic, two-stepWeston MA tick control method, you can rest easy knowing that your yard will be practically mosquito and tick free, thus reducing the worry of contracting any dangerous tick-borne disease!

Prefer to stay on the natural side? Not a problem.

All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we understand that some people want to be as “green” as possible. That’s why we developed an all-natural barrier treatment with essential oils at its base, that we still mix in-house. It focuses more on repelling pests than eliminating them, which confuses and basically “chases them” out of your yard.

While not quite as effective as our traditional barrier spray, it still does a pretty good job — most customers notice a reduction in yard pets between 65-85%. Our all-natural formula is also time-released, but because of its botanical makeup it breaks down slightly faster than the traditional barrier treatment, so we recommend reapplication every two weeks instead of three.
