Winchester MA tick control

Nothing sucks more than ticks. These little vampires are gross creepy crawlies who transmit a bunch of terrible diseases, most commonly Lyme disease around here in New England. 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. In Massachusetts specifically, tick-related diseases have exploded to levels never seen before.

What is perhaps worse is that the CDC report flat-out states that about 80% of vector control organizations lack critical prevention and control capabilities. While the Town of Winchester does have an “important message from the Board of Health” that basically says, “Hey, ticks are bad. Here are a few links and a brochure,” that’s hardly comforting to know that’s all they’re doing to protect their citizens.

Fortunately, Mosquito Squad picks up the slack where the government falls behind, and with our signature barrier treatment, you’re protected from both mosquitoes and ticks in your yard by nearly 90% for up to 21 days at a time — guaranteed. But if it’s specifically tick protection that you’re looking for, our Winchester MA tick control goes above and beyond the standard barrier treatment to make sure ticks in every stage of life are eliminated. And we do it by enlisting the help of some furry friends.

Phase One of our Winchester MA tick control

The first phase of our Winchester 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. You name it, we cover it — wood piles, decks and underneath them, bushes. . . anywhere ticks could possibly be hiding. For ticks, we give extra attention to 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 or your loved ones.

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 Winchester tick control.

Winchester MA tick control, step two

While most other outdoor pest control companies stop at a spray, Mosquito Squad goes the extra mile to ensure younger ticks don’t mature into full-blown adult ticks on your property. Here’s where we strategically place tick tubes around your property. Tick tubes are small, biodegradable tubes stuffed with a treated cotton that lure field mice, which are usually the source of the blood meal for ticks in their earlier stages of life (and where they pick up Lyme disease). 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 soon be eliminated. By using tick tubes and mice as helpers, we’re able to halt the life cycle of these little bloodsuckers in your yard, thus drastically reducing their population in your yard by nearly 90% (possibly even more). You’ll be able to spend time outside at home worry-free!

Guaranteed 100% Satisfaction

We’re extremely confident in the effectiveness of our products and services, and even use them ourselves. But if there’s any reason you’re not satisfied, just let us know. We’ll either give your property another treatment or offer your money back. We’re in the business of eliminating bugs, not customers! But we know people like to do their research before deciding on a company, so so we encourage you to click the button on the right to read over 200 reviews from local homeowners who have used our services.

With Mosquito Squad, protection is guaranteed!

If you are not completely satisfied with your mosquito or tick control treatment, contact us within 21 days of that treatment for a re-spray at no additional charge, or a 100% refund of that treatment.

Looking for something a little more natural?

We do offer an all-natural solution. While all of Mosquito Squads products are EPA-registered, we also get that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green." That’s why we also offer an all-natural barrier treatment solution for your unwanted pests.

Based on natural oils, this more “crunchy” approach focuses more on repelling these little nuisances than eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control solution, but it’s pretty darn close — most customers notice a reduction in yard pests between 65-80%. Also time-released, this application is recommended to be repeated every two weeks, instead of the traditional three.
