Tyngsborough Tick Control
call Mosquito Squad for tick control in Tyngsborough
They’re creepy, they’re crawly, they’re . . . the vampires of the bug world. Ticks are nobody’s friends and unlike vampires, the bite of a tick will not make one immortal – quite the opposite, actually. They transmit all kinds of terrible diseases, including Lyme disease which, as you probably know, is all over the Northeast. It’s so bad here that Massachusetts officially declared it an epidemic in 2005. Last year, ticks were so bad that Boston 25 News called it a “tick explosion.” There are other bad tick-borne diseases here, though, that aren’t Lyme. Things like Babesiosis, which is dangerous to both humans and dogs, and the very scary Powassan virus, which is on the rise.
Recently, the CDC released a report that between 2006 and 2016, diseases from ticks and mosquitoes have more than tripled. That’s enough to make anyone want to sequester themselves and never want to go outside again. But we don’t want you to do that, and it’s safe to say you probably don’t, either.
There is a better way to protect yourself and your family from ticks and tick-borne diseases, and that’s with Mosquito Squad of Massachusetts. Our traditional barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes also eliminates ticks on your property by up to 90%, but we take an extra step to make sure these little bloodsuckers don’t come anywhere near you or your loved ones on your property.
Tyngsborough tick control — the first step
The first thing Mosquito Squad does for your Tyngsborough tick control is take the same approach that we do with our traditional barrier spray treatment. We walk the circumference of your yard, treating everything but flowers with our odorless, colorless formula, working our way inward. We’re sure to cover everything we can, including bushes, trees, patios, lawn ornaments, woodpiles, you name it. But for ticks, we give extra attention to the tall, grassy areas because that’s where they’re most likely to be found breeding, resting, and waiting for their next meal to walk by. It’s our job to make sure it’s not you or your loved ones.
Since it’s time released, our EPA-registered solution eliminates ticks, mosquitoes, and other biting bugs on contact plus for three weeks afterward, because it adheres to all the surfaces of which it was applied. This also prevents tick and mosquito eggs from hatching in the futures, which in turn halts their life cycle.
Then the next step is what we call “the bonus round.”
The second step in Tyngsborough tick control — going straight to the source
The black legged tick (also known as the deer tick) is the one responsible for Lyme disease in the Northeast, but that doesn’t mean that other ticks don’t carry diseases, too. And it’s true that not all ticks are carriers. But the only way to know for sure if one is a carrier of a dangerous pathogen is after you’ve been bitten and you start developing symptoms. That’s not a gamble anybody should even take. So that’s why we go straight to the source and employ tick tubes.
What are tick tubes? They’re small, biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a treated cotton. We place these strategically around your property to entice mice and other small critters, they love to use this cotton to cozy up their nests. Many (if not most) ticks in their nymph stage get their blood meal from these small animals, so when one takes a bite out of an animal who has taken the cotton, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. It’s with this tactic that we eliminate ticks straight at the source, so there’s no chance of them coming anywhere near you, your family, or anyone else on your property.
With our Tyngsborough tick control methods, we can guarantee up to 90% reduction in tick population in your yard for three weeks at a time before needing treatment again. Our tick control is no additional charge to you, and gives you peace of mind knowing you’re protected. Our seasonal plans will ensure you never have to remember to make additional appointments, and we’ll always call and confirm with you that we’re coming 24 hours in advance so there are no surprises, and you can spend time in your yard this summer worry-free.
Looking to avoid synthetics all together? Ask about our all-natural formula.
All of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, but we know that there are some folks who prefer to avoid synthetics and go the all-natural route. Not a problem. That’s why we also offer an all-natural, essential oil based solution. This botanical solution is more of a repellant than an eliminator, essentially chasing the bugs out of your yard. While not quite as effective our traditional barrier treatment, it’s pretty close — most customers report a reduction in yard pests somewhere around 70-80%. Our all-natural formula is also time-released, but because of its makeup breaks down slightly faster and is recommend to be reapplied every two weeks instead of three.

Mosquito Squad stands behind all its services and products, but if there’s any reason you’re not completely satisfied, let us know. We’ll either re-treat your property or offer your money back — no questions asked. We’re in the business of repelling and eliminating insects, not customers, so call for a free estimate today!
