Westford MA Tick Control
your tick control specialist in Westford & Beyond
Ticks are gross. Not just gross — these ugly bugs can be very dangerous, as they can carry multiple serious diseases, some being potentially fatal. Diseases like Babesiosis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and more. Nobody wants to see themselves or their loved ones deal with a tick-borne illness, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, almost nobody. Consider Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts your Westford MA tick control specialists.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Lyme disease in Massachusetts and all over the Eastern U.S. has reached unprecedented levels in recent years. Middlesex County actually had 779 reported Lyme disease cases in 2016 (the most in the state), an unfortunate distinction nobody wants to brag about. The Town of Westford has some basic information on ticks and what to do if one of them bites you, but wouldn’t you rather avoid them all together?
That’s when you call in the pros.
Not only is Mosquito Squad your local mosquito eradication authority, we’re also your Westford MA tick control headquarters. It just so happens that the same barrier spray treatment we use for mosquito control also eliminates ticks. This tick control treatment is wicked effective — it can eliminate up to 90% of ticks on contact. Tick-borne illnesses are no joke and we want to get rid of ticks before they come anywhere near people.
The Process: How Westford MA Tick Control Works
The first step in our Westford MA tick control strategy is using the same process that we do for our mosquito control, spraying our special micro-encapsulated formula around the perimeter of your yard, making sure we get all the shrubbery, foliage (not flowers, though), and surfaces around and underneath patios and decks. But for the ticks, we give more focus than usual around the tall grassy areas, because that’s where they usually hang out — breeding, resting, and well, waiting for their next blood meal.
Our barrier treatment formula is time released, meaning that after mosquitoes and ticks are eliminated on contact, it will keep on doing its job for up to three weeks after it’s disbursed. Because of this, it has the added benefit of preventing tick eggs from hatching and thus stops the next generation of ticks. We suggest re-treating your property every three weeks for proactive protection throughout the season.
Prefer an All-natural Tick Treatment Approach? We’ve got that.
While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA-registered, we also offer an all-natural tick treatment solution for those of us who prefer to stay as eco-conscious as possible. This barrier spray solution, made with essential oils, focuses more on repelling ticks than eliminating them. It’s not quite as effective as our traditional mosquito and tick control treatment, but it’s still pretty powerful — most customers notice a reduction in ticks between 80-85%. This all-natural approach lasts for up to three weeks before needing reapplication.
