Tick Tubes

Tick Tube Treatments in Northwest Indiana

How Our Tick Control Works in Crown Point, Gary, Valparaiso & Beyond

Over the last few years, the number of reported cases of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses has been constantly on the rise in the United States. You may be using home remedies and methods currently, but the only truly effective way to protect your family from ticks is through the utilization of professional tick control. At Mosquito Squad of Northwest Indiana, we utilize an effective combination of our barrier sprays, and our biodegradable tick tubes to exterminate ticks before they even have a chance to get to you.

First, we apply our traditional mosquito barrier treatment to your property which kills adult ticks on contact and repels them from returning to the area. Then, we strategically place tick tubes in unobtrusive locations around your property to attract field mice. That's correct, we said mice.

Mosquito Squad's tick tubes control tick populations by utilizing the natural instincts of mice. Most ticks acquire their first blood meals, and a majority of the diseases they carry, from mice. Tick tubes contain cotton treated with an EPA registered insecticide designed to specifically target and exterminate ticks. After introducing the tick tubes to the environment around your property, the mice will begin to collect the treated cotton for bedding materials. They will then deliver it directly to their nest spreading the insecticide to other mice and coating their fur, turning them into little mobile tick exterminators. It’s especially important to consult a professional tick exterminator, like Mosquito Squad of Northwest Indiana, to determine where to place the tick tubes for optimal tick control.
