Fleas and ticks can be a nuisance to yourself, your property, and especially your pets. These pests can cause skin problems and discomfort for pets and can even carry and spread diseases to you and your family. Mosquito Squad of Western Suffolk knows what a nuisance fleas and ticks can be and know how to treat your yard to eliminate and repel them.
Ticks live in areas with tall grass, firewood piles, and around decks and sandboxes, places where your pets and children tend to explore. Unfortunately, these pests are not only irritating, but they can also bite both your animal and you. These bites can be very painful to your pets and cause them to scratch uncontrollably, often damaging their skin. Yet, even worse, ticks can spread a variety of dangerous and sometimes fatal diseases that not only affect your pets but your family as well. Ticks can carry and spread:
To control the ticks in your yard, Mosquito Squad of Western Suffolk uses a two-pronged attack. First, to protect yourself and your family from risk of infections, our team offers tick tubes, one of the most effective means of significantly reducing the occurrence of these disease-infected pests. Tick tubes are a unique product that relies on the natural nesting instinct of mice, squirrels, and other small yard animals — the biggest source of blood meals for ticks. These animals take specially-treated cotton from our tick tubes and use it in their nests where any tick larvae encountering the cotton are subsequently eliminated.
Second, we address adult ticks by providing our barrier protection yard treatment. With our traditional solution, this treatment will eliminate up to 90% of your tick population for a full 21 days. We recommend reapplication throughout the season for the optimal prevention.
Fleas can latch onto your dogs and cause severe discomfort and itching. When left untreated, fleas quickly multiply and your pets can bring them into your home, where they can bite you and begin to infest the area. A flea infestation in your home or yard can be difficult to get under control once established, so flea prevention is key. Beyond irritation, fleas can also cause diseases in your pet such as:
These conditions can make your pet very ill and often requires veterinary treatment to get under control.
