Ticks and mosquitoes in Duxbury, MA got an early start this year, but so can you.

Crushing Ticks & Mosquitoes This Season in Duxbury, MAOur South Shore customers saw tick and mosquito activity beginning as early as mid-March this year. Warmer winters mean there is little reprieve from ticks and mosquitoes almost year-round. As soon as our team got word that early season treatments were needed, they hit the ground running - and haven't stopped since! Here's a little bit about why tick and mosquito control is important to Duxbury residents.

Ticks and mosquitoes aren't just nuisance pests that prevent you from enjoying your outdoor space; they are vectors for disease that threaten the well-being of people and pets. Common tick-borne diseases include Lyme disease, Babesiosis, and Anaplasmosis. Less common but still of concern are Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Tularemia, and Powassan virus. Massachusetts mosquitoes carry West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), while mosquitoes elsewhere in the world can spread Dengue Fever, malaria, and Zika virus.

These are small pests that come with big problems - so how can you protect yourself from ticks and mosquitoes?

  • Keep standing water, leaf litter, and yard waste to a minimum
  • Use EPA-approved repellents
  • Wear long sleeves and pants when possible
  • Know how to properly check for and remove ticks

In addition to these precautions, a tick and mosquito control program with Burgess Pest provides a residual barrier that remains effective for weeks. Starting treatment early in the season, followed by regularly-spaced applications, reduces pest pressure and allows you to make the most of your yard, without the itchy bites or health risks.
