Tick Control in Augusta, GA
Protect Your Family With Our Tick Control
While your skin may crawl when you think about ticks in your yard, they’re actually potentially much more than just nasty little arachnids. In fact, ticks carry a multitude of nasty diseases, too. You’re more than likely familiar with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease. These are very serious diseases spread specifically by ticks. That’s why we, too, want to ensure you don’t have ticks roaming around in your yard in Augusta, Evans, or the nearby areas.
Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes with our specially formulated barrier treatment, it so happens that the same micro-encapsulated formula eliminates up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact, too. Make sure you’re relying on a professional, nationally-backed company to deal with your yard’s tick population.
The Game Plan: How Tick Control Works
Following the same barrier treatment process we use for mosquito control, we distribute our special bug-eliminating formula to treat surfaces in your yard that include shrubbery, foliage (avoiding flowers), around and underneath decks and patios, and especially tall grass. Special attention is given to the tall grass areas on your property for Augusta tick control since this is typically where you can find them breeding, resting and waiting for their next blood meal.
Since our formula is designed to be time released, your property will be protected for three weeks once the treatment is disbursed. This barrier treatment has the added benefit of preventing the eggs of ticks from hatching and thus puts a stop to the next generation of these pests. For our season-long customers, we treat your property every three weeks.
The Next Step: Going Straight to the Source
Lyme Disease is primarily carried and spread by the Blacklegged (Deer) tick. While it stands to reason they pick up the Lyme from deer, they actually don’t. It’s usually the nymph ticks that become infected when they feed on small animals, such as mice, that are infected. By going straight to the source through the implementation of tick tubes, we are able to stop the cycle of disease where it would normally start. That way, we’re eliminating ticks before they come anywhere near people and pets.
What’s a tick tube? Well, it’s a small tube with a biodegradable casing that’s filled with cotton treated with a solution fatal to ticks. We strategically place these tubes around your property, and small animals like mice and rabbits will find the cotton and use it to build their nests. When a hungry tick bites and feeds off one of these small animals, it’s gone from this world and one fewer tick to worry about potentially causing anyone damage. These Augusta tick control tubes are a proactive measure that Mosquito Squad takes, and reduce up to 90% of tick populations before they’re able to multiply.
