Groton MA Tick Control
Reliable tick control in Groton & Surrounding Areas
Ticks. Just the word can make a person shudder. Especially here in New England, where Lyme disease is more prevalent than anywhere else in the country. In fact, between 2000-2016, Middlesex County had 8,395 confirmed cases of Lyme, and it estimated that the real number was ten times as many, because most cases go unreported. Lyme disease got so bad here in 2015 that it was officially declared an epidemic in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, while Lyme is the most common, it’s definitely not the only tick-borne disease we need to watch out for. Some are much scarier, like Babesiosis, of which Middlesex County was declared a hot spot, and the rare, but fatal Powassan virus, which has been rising in our area.
So what’s a person to do? Nobody wants to see themselves or their loved ones get sick from a tick. The Massachusetts Health Department has some general information about ticks and tick-borne illnesses and how to check yourself for ticks which is good information to have, but wouldn’t you rather avoid these little monsters all together?
That’s when you call the pros at Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts.
Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes with our specially formulated barrier spray treatment, our same micro encapsulated solution eliminates up to 90% of adult ticks and fleas on contact, too. That’s pretty powerful as it is, but when it comes to Groton MA tick control, we kick it up a notch to protect you and your loved ones from these little suckers.
The First Step in Groton MA Tick Control
We start by doing the same barrier treatment process that we use for mosquito control, walking the perimeter of your yard distributing our special bug-eliminating formula to treat all surfaces (excluding flowering plants) like shrubbery, foliage, around and underneath decks and patios, and especially tall grass. We give special attention is to the tall grassy areas on your property for Groton MA tick control since that’s where ticks like to hang out, resting, breeding, and . . . feeding. It’s our top priority to make sure you’re not on the menu!
Since our barrier treatment formula is time released, it eliminates ticks, mosquitoes, and other creepy-crawlies for three weeks before needing reapplication. This way it also prevents future ticks by stopping their eggs from hatching, which puts a halt to the population cycle.
Step Two — the “Bonus Round"
This is what we call our “going straight to the source” strategy. Babesiosis, Lyme disease, and other tick-borne illnesses are transmitted by deer ticks and others, and no, not all ticks are carriers. But nobody really knows if they’ve been bitten by an infected tick until it happens and they become ill. Is that a gamble anyone wants to take?
Enter tick tubes. Tick tubes are small, biodegrade tubes stuffed with a treated cotton that we strategically place around your property to entice mice and other small animals. These small animals love to bring the cotton back to their burrows to make them cozy. When a tick bites one of these animals, it’s eliminated shortly afterwards. This extra, proactive step Mosquito Squad takes helps eliminate the tick population in your yard by up to 90%. By going “straight to the source,” this tactic of Groton tick control makes sure they’re gone before they come anywhere near people or pets.
Prefer an all-natural approach?
Not a problem. While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPAregistered, we know that some people won’t settle for anything less than 100% “green.” That’s okay, and that’s why we developed our all-natural barrier treatment formula, with essential oils at its base. Our all-natural solution acts more like a repellant than an eliminator, basically “chasing” these little buggers out of your yard. Also time-released, we recommend re-treating with this solution ever two weeks, as opposed to the three that our traditional barrier treatment would need. How effective is it? Pretty darn good. Most customers notice a reduction in yard pests anywhere between 65-80%.
We guarantee 100% satisfaction
Mosquito Squad firmly believes in and stands behind all its services and products, but if there’s any reason you’re not happy, we’re not happy, either. So let us know, and we’ll either re-treat your property or offer your money back. We’re in the business of repelling and eliminating insects, not customers, so call us today!
