Living in Missouri, you know that ticks are a huge concern. These little insects—at times as tiny as a pinhead—can bite you or your pets, potentially causing a number of illnesses including Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, Heartland virus, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF). At the very least, they can cause skin irritation and become nuisances during the summer months. At the Mosquito Squad of West St. Louis County, we provide the protection that you, your family, and your pets need with our proven tick control methods. That way, you can get back to what’s important: enjoying the natural beauty of your backyard without any fear of tick bites.
Ticks are most active during the months of April through September. You can find them in wooded areas, tall grasses, and bushy areas, along hiking trails, as well as in your backyard. Their hunting habits involve sensing the carbon dioxide emitted from an animal or a human, climbing on the end of a blade of grass, and sticking out one of their legs, hoping to latch onto its next host.
Because ticks can sometimes be hard to find until it’s too late, you need strong, effective tick protection for your household. Mosquito Squad of West St. Louis County provides tick treatment and prevention services that you can rely on. We use a combination of tick tubes and our effective yard treatment to eliminate ticks before you ever encounter them.
Our yard treatment eliminates adult ticks instantly. Our biodegradable tick tubes, containing treated cotton, attract mice that take the cotton back to their nests for bedding. Tick larvae usually get their first meals from mice, so when they are exposed to the treated cotton, they are also eliminated.
