We love protecting families from mosquitoes and ticks in their own backyards, but it's very important to take precautions when you're out trailblazing the wilderness, too. Here are a few tips 👇

1. BUG SPRAY 🦟
Don’t leave home without it. Whether you’re camping, hiking or even just taking a walk in the park, a few sprays of this on your skin and clothing will help you enjoy your outdoor adventure without having to be on swat alert.

2. TEA TREE OIL 🌿
While tea tree oil can be healthy and healing for humans, it’s actually quite toxic to many insects. Put some on your skin before heading outside to reduce the risk of getting bit. If a mosquito manages to slip through, applying tea tree oil to the affected area will provide immediate relief.

3. SOCKS 🧦
Hiking is one of summer’s most popular activities and while it provides us with gorgeous sceneries and breathtaking views, it also increases our exposure to mosquitoes and ticks. So before you embark on your next rugged adventure, throw long socks on and tuck in the bottom of your pants to seal the entryway for any pests.

4. HAT 🧢
There’s nothing worse than getting a bug stuck in your hair, especially when it’s a mosquito with its own agenda. We’ve all been that person at least once in our lives who feels or hears a bug fly in, then proceeds to flail our bodies around until it’s out. Do yourself a favor and sport a hat to avoid a potential public catastrophe.

Protect your family from the dangers of Lyme disease

The number of reported cases of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses has been on the rise in the United States. You may be using home remedies currently, but the only effective way to protecting yourself and your family from ticks is through utilizing professional tick control.

At Mosquito Squad, we utilize an effective blend of our barrier spray treatment and our biodegradable tick tubes to eliminate ticks before they can get to you.

In Phase One, we apply our traditional mosquito control spray which kills adult ticks on contact.
In Phase Two, we place tick tubes in strategic and unobtrusive locations around your property to attract mice. That's right, we said mice.

Mosquito Squad tick tubes control tick populations by relying on the natural nesting instincts of mice. Most ticks get their first blood meals from mice. Tick tubes contain cotton that has been treated with an EPA-registered insecticide designed specifically to eliminate tick populations. After introducing the tick tubes into the mice natural environment, the mice begin to collect the treated cotton for bedding materials. The mice then deliver it directly to their nest. And the insecticide gets on the mice fur turning them into mobile tick exterminators.

It’s critical to consult a professional, like Mosquito Squad, to determine the timing, quantity, and placement of tick tubes.
