How important is tick control in Central MA?

Author: Mosquito Squad of Franklin & Framingham

If you live in Central Massachusetts, you know that our region of the United States is a hotbed for high tick populations. With the threat of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, tick control has never been more important.

As a matter of fact, if you are a Massachusetts resident, you likely know someone, who has been diagnosed with a tick-borne illness. Late last year, our area saw an increase in Powassan virus, a potentially deadly disease resulting from a bite from an infected black-legged tick. The great news is that Mosquito Squad offers effective Central Massachusetts tick control for your home and family.

Effective Massachusetts tick control is achieved in a number of ways. When it comes to protecting your yard and home from the threat of ticks, Mosquito Squad’s professional tick spray is your best bet. We offer a barrier tick spray, the exact solution used for mosquito control, which will not only start eliminating ticks on contact, but will continue working for up to three weeks after treatment. The secret is in EPA-registered, time-released tick control formula. This treatment offers protection against up to 90% of ticks around your home, and will have you enjoying your yard again in as little as 30 minutes after application.

All-natural Central MA Tick Control

If you are looking for an all-natural Central Massachusetts tick control solution, Mosquito Squad of Franklin & Framingham has you covered. The difference in our all-natural tick spray versus the EPA-registered tick control solution is that it acts as a repellent rather than an eliminator. While the EPA-registered tick control spray will help eliminate ticks and mosquitoes for up to 21 days, our all-natural tick spray will repel ticks and mosquitoes with a base of essential oils and other all-natural ingredients. Even though all-natural repellents last for a time after application, it is necessary to have them reapplied more frequently than our traditional tick and mosquito treatments. You can expect about two weeks of protection!

Year-round tick control in Central Massachusetts.

Contrary to what many folks believe, winter does not kill ticks. Ticks simply go dormant in temperatures below 40 degrees, awaiting warm weather. In springtime, those dormant ticks will emerge and continue questing, biting, and mating to create new generations of blood suckers. The tick life cycle stops at nothing. Well, almost nothing. Tick tubes have come along in recent years, which are helping combat ticks better than ever. Mosquito Squad’s tick tubes are professionally-made and placed around your property in Central Massachusetts. These tubes are biodegradable and filled with cotton treated with insecticide. Mice, the main carriers of Lyme bacteria, which infect ticks before they bite humans, will take this cotton to their nests. Ticks in the nest will be eliminated once exposed to the tick treatment. For ultimate Central Massachusetts tick control, tick tubes are absolutely essential!
