Tick Control & Prevention

Mosquito Joe not only rids your yard of pesky mosquitoes, but we take care of ticks too! Our tick control protects your family, pets, and property from the irritation and health risk these pests cause, year-round. Did you know that ticks will arrive before mosquitoes and hang around after the mosquitoes are gone? Ticks appear once the spring ground temperature is above 45 degrees Fahrenheit, and they stick around until well past freezing in winter, so it’s important to have a tick control plan in place in advance.

Pet owners and parents alike must be concerned with tick prevention because a tick bite can have serious implications for children and pets. Five of the ten diseases ticks transmit to humans can be transmitted to pets as well. That is why tick control is essential to keeping everyone (furry or not) around your household healthy and safe.

To learn more about ticks, how to remove one, and the types of ticks in your area, visit our company blog section “Let’s Talk about Ticks.“

Why is Tick Control Important?

Ticks can carry the pathogens for ten human diseases and spread illnesses such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Anaplasmosis. These common tick diseases are major health concerns for your family, reinforcing the need for tick control to prevent bites.

Tick-borne illness symptoms include fever, headache, chills, and muscle aches. Ticks are among the most efficient carriers of disease because they remain firmly attached when sucking blood, feed slowly, and may go unnoticed for a considerable amount of time while feeding. Protect your family by implementing our tick control service, and supplement that by taking practical tick prevention steps at home.

Types of Tick Control Methods

Mosquito Joe Tick Prevention TechniquesAt Mosquito Joe, we’re all about protecting your home and family from a variety of pests. In addition to our professional mosquito control services, we offer effective tick control to ensure you can enjoy your patio and outdoor spaces without enduring disease-carrying bites. In addition to killing the ticks currently on your property, tick control and prevention involves steps you can take to make your property less hospitable to these pesky biters.

With help from Mosquito Joe, you can get ahead of any ticks, mosquitoes, and other outdoor pest control issues on your property this season by implementing the following habits:

  • Keep grass mowed and trees trimmed to cut down on tick breeding places.
  • Move wood piles away from the home to eliminate tick hiding places.
  • Keep pets out of thickly wooded areas where tick activity is high.
  • Move swing sets, sandboxes, and other play areas away from wooded areas.
  • Wear long sleeves and pants when walking in wooded or grassy areas to avoid tick bites.
  • Wash clothing immediately after coming inside and inspect kids and pets for ticks.
  • Use professional outdoor tick control services to protect your yard from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. Mosquito Joe’s tick control barrier spray is applied every three weeks to protect your family from disease-bearing ticks.

Best Tick Prevention Techniques

The best tick prevention combines professional tick control service with taking active steps to make your property less attractive to nasty biters.

Out of approximately 850 tick species worldwide, 90 make their home in the U.S. Some have a hard exoskeleton; others have a tough, leathery exterior. Each species has its unique susceptibility and defense to chemical pesticides. Mosquito Joe’s outdoor tick control treatments effectively eliminate each tick species in the U.S.

Although some tick species are more resistant to some insecticides, similar ecological needs make them all sensitive to the tick prevention steps you can take to protect your property.

Ticks cannot jump or fly; they can only crawl. They sit on the tips of grass and shrubs while waiting for warm-blooded hosts to pass by. When brushed by a moving animal or person, ticks quickly let go of the vegetation and climb onto the host to bite. To avoid this, use tick prevention methods of your own and let Mosquito Joe spray your yard. We set up a barrier against these intruders. Since our tick control barrier sprays target shrubbery, we already zone in on where ticks live while waiting for a host.
