Barrier Tick Control and Lyme DIsease prevention Services in Portsmouth, RI
Getting a tick bite or finding a tick on one of your pets is scary. What’s even scarier is that tick can be infected with Lyme Disease thus passing it on to you. The best way to protect you, your family, your pets, and your guests from the dangers of tick bites in the Portsmouth area is to protect your yard against ticks.
At Mosquito Squad of Southern Rhode Island, our barrier spray program protects your entire yard. We spray every 2-3 weeks depending on your choice of program. The barrier spray eliminates ticks on contact and continues protecting your yard for the next couple weeks. Then our licensed and trained professionals re-treat your yard throughout the entire tick season.
Ticks hang out in grass, on plants and trees, and even on wood piles, wood fences, and other piles of stones, leaves or other debris. Basically, they hang out throughout your back yard. Take back your yard this summer by using our barrier spray to keep the ticks and Lyme Disease out.
Will you know when you’ve been bitten by an infected tick?
Not always. While some tick bites leave the characteristic bullseye rash, many tick bites do not. In fact, some ticks are so small that you don’t even know you’ve been bitten.
