Tick Control Protects Your Family From the Dangers of Lyme Disease
Let’s face it: Thanks to year-round warm weather and an active wildlife population, Florida is a breeding ground for ticks. And did you know that just one female tick can lay up to 6,000 eggs at once? That’s why the key to protecting you and your family from ticks is professional tick control.
At Mosquito Squad, we utilize an effective blend of our barrier spray treatment and tick tubes to eliminate ticks before they can get to you. Our traditional mosquito control spray kills adult ticks on contact, while tick tubes are placed around your property to entice mice. Yes, we said mice.
Mosquito Squad controls ticks with tick tubes that rely on the natural nesting instincts of mice and deliver a tick controlling insecticide directly to its home. Tick tubes are made of biodegradable tubes with treated cotton inside. When placed in their environment, mice collect the cotton for bedding. Since most ticks get their first blood meals from mice, they are exposed to the treated cotton, effectively eliminating the ticks.
It’s important to consult a professional, like Mosquito Squad, to determine the timing and quantity of tubes and placement.
