Tick Control Massachusetts

Tick Control Services - Keep Ticks out of your Yard

Ticks pose a health threat to your family and pets. I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control's tick control services can provide a protective barrier against these stealthy insects. Our variety of tick control services will not only significantly reduce existing tick problems, but provide ongoing treatments that can keep the ticks from coming back.

Some ticks carry dangerous diseases, like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, but a person who gets bitten by a tick usually won’t feel anything at all. So you want to protect yourself – and your pets – against ticks at all costs. That is where I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control's tick control services can help.

A professional from I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control can come to your home and apply control treatments designed to reduce ticks around your property. Our tick control services work with you through the three stages of effective tick control:

  • Prevention: there isn’t a way to prevent ticks from entering your property except by having the proper treatments in place.
  • Control: If you already have a tick problem, our services will help remove them through a range of products and applications.
  • Ongoing Tick Maintenance: Our technicians apply additional treatments to stop ticks from coming back again.

Effective Tick Control Starts with Prevention

  • Talk to I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control of Massachusetts about what you can do to make your property less inviting to ticks. Our pest prevention experts will help you with effective prevention strategies such as:

    • Applying preventative tick control products to keep them out of the yard in the first place.
    • Cutting back foliage to remove potential habitats for ticks.
    • Pruning your trees and shrubs to reduce shade.
    • Planting greenery that is unattractive to deer and mice, which often carry ticks.
    • Erect a fence to keep deer off the property.
    • Get rid of woodpiles that can be attractive to mice.

    Additional preventative strategies that you can do to help eliminate ticks in your yard:

    • Mow your lawn at the height to keep it healthy and keep ticks away.
    • Rake and dispose of leaves that could potentially be a breeding ground for ticks.
    • Put up a barrier of mulch, gravel, or woodchips between your yard and the woods to keep the ticks in the woods – and out of your yard.
    • Keep a bird feeder off the ground and safe from mice, or better yet, don’t put out bird feeders in your yard; dropped seeds will also attract mice.

    After prevention, the next step is to actually control ticks in your landscape. I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control offers a variety of tick control programs that work on reducing your ongoing tick problem almost immediately.

  • Tick-borne Diseases are Preventable

    The Blacklegged Tick, also called Deer Tick, is abundant throughout Massachusetts. They can carry the organisms that cause Lyme disease, babesiosis, human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA), and Powassan virus. While tick-borne illnesses can be very serious if untreated, they are preventable:

    • Protect yourself from tick bites.

      Wear permethrin-treated clothing when working or walking outdoors. Use insect repellents formulated to repel ticks. Perform a daily tick check after being outdoors.

    • The highest risk of disease is during summer months, May-August.

      Deer ticks can be active all year long. Nymph Stage deer ticks are active from early May through early August. They are about the size of a poppy seed, have a bite that is difficult to feel, carry the highest risk, and are responsible for the majority of tick-borne diseases.

    • Consider using environmental controls in your yard:

      Perimeter Spray, Mouse-Targeted Devices, eliminating tick habitat, and landscaping controls.

Ongoing Prevention Maintenance can Help Keep the Ticks Out

After your first treatment, your I.T.S. Pest & Wildlife Control technician can return for additional treatments, to continue to keep those ticks out. At I.T.S.
