May 8th-14th 2022 is Tick Awareness Week! All week long, we'll be bringing you the information you need to protect yourself from these potentially dangerous pests.

With the weather beginning to feel more like spring, we're all itching to get outdoors - without dealing with itchy bites later. Ticks and mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they can spread dozens of diseases to humans. Knowing this, many homeowners turn to tick and mosquito control companies, but it can be difficult to know which company to choose. There are so many options, and they all make a lot of promises - so how do you know you're getting the best service for your money? Here are some questions you should ask when hiring a tick and mosquito control company.

Tick Control Company Massachusetts Rhode Island

What products do you use? Does this company use EPA-registered, environmentally friendly, residual products? Some companies promising great results are using inferior product that breaks down quickly, leaving virtually no residual effect.

What equipment is used? The Burgess Pest team uses 200-gallon hydraulic sprayers with strong enough PSI to reach high brush and tall trees, better equipped to eliminate breeding grounds than cheap backpack misters often used by other companies.

Are your technicians licensed? Licensed tick and mosquito control technicians are trained in proper product use and application methods, whereas unlicensed or undertrained applicators use inferior product and may spray non-target areas, such as your lawn.

What is your retreatment policy? Some companies nickel-and-dime customers for retreatments or extra treatments, even after rain.

What about my vegetable garden/fish pond/chicken coops, etc.? In pest control, nothing is one-size-fits-all. At Burgess Pest, we avoid sensitive areas of your property with detailed site maps and customized applications.

You wouldn't hire a cleaning company or a pet sitter without asking questions, and pest control should be no different. If the company you're vetting dodges these or any other questions you have, it's time to move on. When you choose Burgess Pest, you're teaming up with New England's #1 choice for tick and mosquito control - but don't take our word for it. Find out for yourself and schedule a free estimate. We're happy to answer all your questions.
