Why you should use a mosquito misting company for your tick control on Long Island

Posted by Mosquito Squad

We know there could be some confusion as to why anyone would call a company with a name like “Mosquito Squad” when they need tick control on Long Island. Don’t let our name mislead you — while our standard barrier treatment will eliminate nearly 90% of mosquitoes on your property for up to three weeks, it’s equally as effective on ticks.

So why didn’t we name ourselves “Mosquito & Tick Squad” since our product eliminates both? In hindsight, perhaps we should have, but Mosquito Squad has locations all over the country. In areas where ticks and Lyme disease aren’t as prevalent as it is here, it would be an unnecessarily long name. Plus, “Mosquito & Tick Squad” just doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as easily, does it?

Regardless, here in New York and elsewhere in the Northeast, ticks are a HUGE concern because the rates of Lyme disease are higher than anywhere else in the country. The map below is courtesy of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and depicts the concentration of Lyme disease in 2016. Each dot represents one case, and is placed in the patient’s county of residence. As you can see, this area of the country gets the brunt of it!

Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment is the most effective product for tick control Long Island has available, eliminating nearly 90% of the adult ticks in your yard for up to 21 days at a time. We can also accommodate for more intensive treatments, which include treating your yard more frequently and incorporating tick tubes to eliminate ticks at all stages of their life cycle. Call us today at (516) 874-3003 for a free consultation. Mosquito Squad is the most trusted name in mosquito and tick control on Long Island!
