Effective Tick & Mosquito Control For Your Property
While many pest infestations create merely a nuisance, some pests are downright dangerous; in our area, mosquitoes and ticks present a number of unique dangers for our community. These common outdoor pests, while very different, do spread deadly diseases through their bites.
Mosquitoes are winged insects that are prominent in warmer weather and near stagnant water. These biting pests are known for causing irritating bites; female mosquitoes require blood in order to produce eggs and use a long mouthpiece called a proboscis to pierce the skin of mammals.
Ticks are small arachnids and are closely related to spiders. These ectoparasites do not have wings and, therefore, can’t fly. Instead, ticks travel by hiding out in tall grass and waiting for a person or pet to happen so they can hitch a ride and feed on our blood. Diseases commonly spread by ticks include anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and Lyme disease.
At first sight of these blood-feeding pests on your property, contact Encon, LLC to inquire about our pest control treatment options in Worcester, MA, and surrounding areas.
Our Mosquito & Tick Control Process
Encon is proud to announce our new mosquito and tick elimination program! Our team uses Talstar P, an EPA-registered product considered to be the safest and most effective method for eliminating these pests. This treatment has proven to be effective at eliminating at least 90% of any active infestation. Since no two infestations or properties are the same, our team will make it a point to discuss further opportunities to improve this rate of elimination based on your unique needs. Our team will give you a call two to three days in advance so that you can plan any outside activities accordingly. This liquid treatment has a thirty-minute drying time after application, so you can quickly get back to enjoying your outdoor living space.
For a more environmentally responsible approach to mosquito and tick control, we also offer Essentria IC3 as a green alternative. Essentria IC3 is a flexible, broad-spectrum product that features active ingredients derived from essential oils and uses natural botanical compounds to provide fast, complete knockdown with residual elimination of mosquitoes and ticks. This method is proven to eliminate at least 90% of any active infestation on your property.
This new program consists of eight treatment visits starting in late April and lasting through October. These service visits are spread three weeks apart and tailored around holiday weekends. Contact our office to learn more.
