Hempstead Tick Control
Ticks suck. Literally. What’s worse is that these little bugs, although small, can have a huge impact on the lives of you and your loved ones if they hitch a ride, looking for a free meal. Tick-born illnesses are nothing to mess around with. If you live in the Northeast United States, you know that Lyme disease is prevalent here. But did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York has the highest number of Lyme disease cases nationwide? Long Island had an “explosion” of ticks in 2017, and it’s not looking like that’s going to die down any time soon. But Lyme disease isn’t the only thing we have to worry about here. There’s also been a rise of Babesiosis and the rare, but fatal Powassan virus on Long Island, two very serious tick-born illnesses. Nobody wants to see themselves or their loved ones deal with a tick-borne disease, and nobody wants to deal with ticks. Well, almost nobody. Consider Mosquito Squad of Southeastern Nassau County your tick control specialists in the greater Hempstead area.
While not all ticks are infected with and carry scary diseases, do you really want to get bitten by one and take the chance? The best protection is to avoid them all together and stop ticks before they ever come near you or your family.
Not only does Mosquito Squad help eliminate up to 90% of mosquitoes on your property with our specially formulated barrier control treatment, the same formula also gets rid of adult fleas and ticks on contact by up to 90%. It’s pretty powerful stuff, but for your tick control needs in Hempstead, Bellmore or beyond, we take it to the next level.
How Our Long Island Tick and Flea Control Works
The first step in our Hempstead tick control services is by using the same barrier treatment around your yard that we do for mosquitoes. We treat your yard from the outside perimeter working our way inward, making sure we treat all the shrubbery and other foliage (but avoiding flowers, don’t worry), patios, and on and under decks. For ticks, we give special attention to any tall grassy areas, because that’s where they’re most likely to be hanging out, breeding, resting, and waiting for their next blood meal. It’s our top priority to make sure that isn’t you!
Since our barrier treatment formula is time released, it eliminates ticks, mosquitoes, and other creepy-crawlies for three weeks before needing reapplication. This way it also prevents future ticks by stopping their eggs from hatching, which puts a halt to the population cycle.
Step Two: Mosquito Squad’s Tick Control “Bonus Round”
Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses are most often transmitted by deer ticks, but other ticks species can be carriers of scary diseases, too. While it’s true that not all ticks are carriers of these dangerous pathogens, the only way to tell if a tick is a carrier of anything scary is after we’re bitten and start to feel ill. Wouldn’t you rather not take that chance?
That’s why we go a step beyond our traditional barrier treatment with our Hempstead tick control and use tick tubes. These are small biodegradable tubes that are stuffed with a treated cotton. We strategically place tick tubes around your yard for mice to find. Mice love to use cotton for their nests, so they take this cotton back to where they live to get nice and cozy. When a tick bites one of these mice, it is eliminated shortly thereafter. We take this proactive step to ensure we go “straight to the source” and get rid of ticks before they come anywhere near you or your loved ones, whether they have two legs or four. Mosquito Squad’s two-step tick control approach reduces the tick population in your yard by up to 90%.
Our All-Natural Tick Control Option
While all of Mosquito Squad’s products are EPA registered, we know that some people prefer to be as eco-conscious and “green” as possible. That’s why we developed our special, all-natural barrier treatment formula, based on essential oils. It acts more like a repellent than an eliminator, basically “chasing” these little buggers out of your yard. Also a time-released formula, we recommend re-treating with this solution ever two weeks. How effective is it? Pretty darn good. Most customers notice a reduction in yard pests anywhere between 65-80%
