Tick Tubes provide an environmentally friendly and easy to use solution for tick control. They have a proven result of showing a 90% reduction of exposure to a tick that could expose you to several tick-borne diseases, one being Lyme Disease. Tick Tubes can be used alone or in combination with the Mosquito Squad Barrier Spray to guarantee the best tick control treatment on your property.
How Tick Tubes Work
Tick Tubes are made of biodegradable tubes, resembling toilet paper rolls they are stuffed with tick controlling insecticide cotton. The mice then collect the cotton for bedding, and since a tick’s first blood meal comes from mice, they are then exposed to the treated cotton.
Mosquito Squad will place tick tubes around your property and will be applied twice a year; once in the spring and once at the end of summer to effectively eliminate ticks. The number of tick tubes will vary based off the size of your property, and the amount of appropriate placement your property requires. Our technicians will place tick tubes in the areas mice are likely to have their habitat, such as woodpiles, under shrubs, foundation, brush, flower beds and under decks.
