Your family and pets need protection not only from the nuisance and dangers of mosquitos, but ticks and fleas as well.
Ticks harbor in all the places pets children like to explore. Brush and wood piles, tall grass, and under decks are perfect environments to harbor ticks. Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other tick-borne illnesses are the fastest rising vector born illnesses in the United States. The key to protecting you and your family from ticks is Mosquito Squad’s professional tick & flea control program.
We eliminate the adult ticks with our barrier treatment that we use for mosquitoes and also use tick tubes to eliminate young ticks. The tick tubes are filled with a cotton material that is treated with permethrin (used in many bug sprays). This cotton material is taken by small mammals (field mice, chipmunks, rabbits, etc.) as nesting material. Ticks in pre-adult phases of the life cycle will attach themselves to the small mammals. These mammals will carry them back to their nest. At the nest they come in contact with the permethrin treated cotton material and die from that contact. This system eliminates 90% or more of the ticks on the treated property.
Like adult ticks, adult fleas are eliminated when we treat a property with our mosquito barrier treatment. In order to control the life cycle of the flea, we add a growth regulator to the barrier treatment spray. The growth regulator stops the life cycle of the flea so that they do not become adults. This process, done with every barrier treatment, across the season will keep the fleas off your pets and also keep them from being brought into your home.
Treat your pets to the same protection as the rest of your family with Mosquito Squad’s Tick & Flea Treatment.
