Pets are Part of the Family

At Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South, nothing is more important to us than utilizing environmentally responsible solutions to rid your Canton, Weymouth and Hingham, MA area yard of ticks and mosquitoes. For this very reason, we only utilize EPA registered products and apply them in accordance with their labels. As pet owners ourselves, as well as being America’s most trusted tick and mosquito control company, we want to provide your pets protection against the dangers of mosquitoes and ticks.

During the barrier treatment application, you, your family and your pets should remain indoors. Then, after waiting an hour, you can bring everyone outside into the yard, including your pets. Perhaps just as importantly, our EPA registered barrier treatment solution can help protect your pets from coming into contact with potentially disease-carrying mosquitoes and ticks. While you may only associate tick-borne and mosquito-borne illnesses with humans, your pets can also contract them.

We also offer a completely organic, natural barrier application.

What Diseases Can Dogs and Cats Contract from Ticks and Mosquitoes?

Commonly associating mosquito bites with humans only is a mistake; mosquitoes will feed on your dogs and cats just as quickly as they would feed on you. Furthermore, while mosquitoes carry vector-borne illnesses that affect humans, they too carry diseases capable of causing serious harm to your pets. The most common and formidable illness transferred to dogs and cats via the mosquito is Dog heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis).

Having the name “Dog heartworm” gives this disease a categorically incorrect designation. It is in fact transmissible between dogs, cats, foxes and raccoons. The most important fact about heartworms is that they are not curable, they are only preventable. Prevention is where we at Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South are most effective.

Ticks also can transmit diseases to pets, including Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Granulocytic Anaplasmosis. Each of these illnesses can be extremely detrimental to your pets. In both dogs and humans, a bite from a Lone Star tick can result in fever, headaches, nausea, weakness and fatigue.

When searching for licensed, professional tick and mosquito control services in Cohasset MA, Hingham MA, Canton MA, Milton MA or anywhere in between, Mosquito Squad of Boston Metro South is the company to turn to. Applying our protective barrier treatment can mean all the difference in the world for your pets by protecting them from coming into contact with disease carrying ticks and mosquitoes within your yard.
