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.
