If you employ professional tick and mosquito control in the springtime and summer, you should know that pests are still in-season in autumn too.
If you are a Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South client, great on you! You know the value in protecting your home and family from the threat of vector-borne illnesses, such as Lyme disease and EEE. At the very least, you wish to lower your chances of annoying encounters with mosquitoes and ticks around your home. Unfortunately, ticks and mosquitoes do not hunker down or migrate when the weather begins to cool.
Why is Hingham mosquito control important in the fall?
When temperate weather falls at the end of summer, we all breathe a sigh of relief. Sweltering summertime temperatures are behind us, and cool autumnal breezes welcome us outdoors. Nights by the fire pit and midday barbecues in the fall are vastly improved with continued mosquito control. Mosquitoes are still apt to invade your outdoor activities until much cooler weather arrives. When temperatures dip and remain below 45°F mosquitoes will finally give us a break. If you have outdoor activities planned around your home in the late summer and fall, continue your mosquito control too.
Same goes for tick control, and then some.
Ticks are most active in the summer, but they do not halt their assault with the change of the season. Continuing your Mosquito Squad tick control through the fall is your best bet at lowering your chances of a family member or pet falling victim to an infected tick bite. What’s more, ticks do not die in the winter. The great news is, that Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South offers a phenomenal tick protection solution that is deployed after their busy season. Our tick tube program will extend your tick control efforts through the fall and winter. This program is a simple yet genius option that works ‘out of season’ to decrease the number of emerging ticks when springtime rolls back around. These small biodegradable tubes are filled with insecticide-treated cotton, and when strategically placed around your property, will entice mice to dig inside to bring that cotton back where they nest. The treated cotton is not dangerous for mice but is deadly for ticks that are either in their nest or that come in contact with a mouse that has the treatment on their skin and fur.
The end of summer does not mean the end of your Hingham tick and mosquito control. Trust Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South to fortify your yard against the threat of both pests with the same traditional barrier treatment or natural treatment and extend your tick control with tick tubes.
