Mosquito Squad of the Twin Cities is your best choice for tick control in the Metropolitan area. From St. Paul to Lake Minnetonka, Bloomington to Andover, we have a great method for eliminating ticks from your property so you can enjoy the outdoors with fewer worries. With Lyme disease spreading rapidly across the country, it is more important now than ever to safeguard your family from ticks and tick bites. With our combination barrier spray + tick tube treatment, you can enjoy your yard worry-free.
Our most popular mosquito control treatment also eliminates ticks on contact. Traditional barrier spray is sprayed by our trained technicians every 2-3 weeks throughout the season for a continuous reduction of the tick population in your yard. When spraying for ticks, they’ll pay special attention to shady cool areas where ticks are known to hide, along the bottom of retaining walls, fences, wood piles, in tall grass and tree lines. The time-released formula continues to protect your yard in between sprays and reduces your yard’s tick population by 85-90%.
Tick tubes are a great way to interrupt the tick life cycle. Twice a year we strategically place cardboard tubes full of treated cotton in just the right places around your property. Small mammals, mostly mice, take the cotton to use as a nesting material. The nymph and larval ticks attach themselves to the mice. When the mice enter the nest, the ticks die from the contact with the treated nesting material. With the addition of tick tubes, we can eliminate over 90% of the ticks on your property.
Ticks are not just a nuisance. They carry many dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis and Babesiosis. In addition to our services, for the best Minneapolis & St. Paul tick control it is important to follow the 6 C’s of tick proofing your yard to make sure you’re not creating an attractive environment for ticks and the deer that bring them to your yard.
