Lyme Disease in Maryland
This tick-borne disease is spread by the deer tick, also known as the blacklegged tick. Because these insects are so tiny, they typically evade detection until it’s too late. They are predominantly active in their largest numbers between the months of May and October, but somewhat smaller populations are present year-round.
Brush, tall grass, leaf build up, and wooded areas are common spots for tick habitation. Even when you don’t traverse these areas, pets and mice can carry ticks and bring them into your home, exposing your loved ones to their dangers.
Tick Control for Your Home
Mosquito Squad of Annapolis offers dependable protection from ticks with our treatment and prevention tick control system. Our barrier treatment, coupled with tick tubes, targets both adults and young ticks, effectively wiping them out. Our barrier treatment deals with adult ticks on your property, eliminating them on contact.
For tick larvae and eggs, we target the nesting instincts of mice and other rodents through the use of tick tubes filled with treated cotton. The vermin take the cotton for their nest bedding. Tick nymphs feed on rodents at the beginning of their life cycle. This behavior exposes them to the treated bedding, effectively eradicating the young ticks, and eliminating this hazard from your property with 90 percent efficacy.
