Tick Control

Reliable Outdoor Tick Control

Ticks are much more than a nuisance – they are also a health threat. Like mosquitoes, ticks transmit disease to tens of thousands of Americans every year. Unlike mosquitoes, ticks do not feast and flee. After finding a host, a tick can remain there feeding for days until they’re discovered. The best way to keep ticks away is to hire professional tick control technicians to defend your property. Mosquito Squad is prepared to be your local tick control solution!

Types Of tick control services we offer

At Mosquito Squad, we are proud to offer two distinct tick control services:

  1. Our traditional mosquito and tick barrier treatment effectively kills ticks on contact and controls them for up to 21 days.
  2. Our tick tube treatment strategy eliminates ticks with a biodegradable product.

We provide both one-time and recurring tick control services. Whether you need us to treat for a special event or routinely, our technicians are ready to be of service. During our cost-free consultation, we’ll inspect your property for tick breeding areas (wooded areas, high grasses, mulch beds, etc.) and develop a treatment plan. Then we’ll give you an honest, up-front quote with no hidden fees involved. 

About Traditional Tick Barrier Treatment

If left untreated, tick populations can multiply quickly. The types of ticks that transmit Lyme Disease typically lay 3,000 or more eggs in one clutch. When that’s happening in your yard, it’s a problem! Our mosquito barrier treatment eliminates helps control ticks at the source: their breeding grounds. We also spray a perimeter of protection around your home. This perimeter is particularly successful at controlling ticks, as they tend to live at the edges of lawns where the grass is taller.

About tick tube treatment

Our special tick tube treatment involves strategically placing biodegradable tick tubes around your property and letting nature do the rest. Each tube is filled with insecticide-treated cotton that mice then collect and use for bedding. The reason we attract the mice is simple: When ticks attach to mice, they are taken to mouse nests and eliminated by the cotton.

What to Do After Your Tick Treatment

After each treatment from Mosquito Squad, keep children and pets away from treated areas for at least 30 minutes. We also recommend maintaining your yard between treatments by mowing your lawn and cleaning up areas with natural debris like leaves or grass clippings. Then get the lawn chairs out – now you can enjoy your yard without worrying about ticks!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do ticks live in your yard?

Ticks tend to hang out in shady spots closer to the ground. They’re attracted to weeds, tall grasses, low-lying shrubs, and the outer edge of grasslands near lawns. 

Other common areas where ticks can be found include:

  • Wood piles
  • Wooded areas
  • Stone walls
  • Leaf piles
  • Fallen and low-hanging tree branches
  • Overgrown shrubs
  • Bird feeders

Ticks cannot jump or fly – they attach to humans by direct contact. Once a tick finds skin, it usually climbs to a protected and warm area to latch onto, such as a head or armpits.

Are ticks dangerous?

They can be. Ticks are the primary carrier of human-contracted Lyme Disease. Over the past decade, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported approximately 30,000 new cases of Lyme Disease each year. The symptoms include severe fatigue, rashes, fever, joint pain, and chronic illness. If the disease is caught early enough, antibiotics can alleviate symptoms. 

Dogs and cats are equally if not more susceptible to tick-borne Lyme Disease, due to their active lifestyles and low-to-the-ground physiques. 

Other tick-borne diseases include:

What is the cost of tick control services?

The prices of tick control services vary depending on the square footage of the treated area, the frequency of treatment, and the specific tick control option you choose. You can count on Mosquito Squad’s customized free quote to be competitive and fair.
