Additional Tick Protection Tips for Tick Spraying Mansfield Homeowners
Professional tick control through tick spraying in Mansfield is recommended, but besides tick spraying, Mansfield homeowners can take these preventative measures:
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants while outdoors, especially if you’re in a wooded area that hasn’t received tick spraying. Mansfield residents should cover their arms and legs and tuck in their shirts, and even tuck their socks into their pants to keep ticks off their skin.
- Wear light-colored clothes, even if your property is receiving tick spraying. Mansfield homeowners in lighter clothes will have an easier time seeing ticks on their clothes before the ticks move to the skin.
- Even if your yard is receiving tick spraying, Mansfield residents should wear bug spray outdoors.
- Talk to your vet about protecting your dogs and cats from ticks, fleas and heartworms.
- Shower and/or bathe immediately after you’ve been in a wooded, grassy area that could have ticks—don’t delay. Frequent grooming will help stop ticks along with tick spraying Mansfield
Tick Spraying Mansfield Homes Helps Against Tick-Borne Diseases
Ticks are parasites that feed on warm-blooded hosts, including people, dogs, cats and deer. Besides Lyme disease, ticks carry Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and they can carry other co-bacterial infections. Deer ticks are a prevalent tick in the northeast that can carry Lyme disease, making it crucial to get tick spraying. Mansfield and all southern Massachusetts homeowners should consider contacting us for tick spraying. Mansfield homeowners shouldn’t have to worry about disease while enjoying the great outdoors!
Common Questions About Ticks Before Tick Spraying Mansfield Homes
Our licensed technicians are experts when it comes to tick behavior as well as tick spraying. Mansfield homeowners, consider these common questions and fact about ticks if considering us for tick spraying your Mansfield home:
- Ticks can only crawl; they don’t jump or fly. Ticks usually stalk potential hosts and then latch on when the host gets close enough.
- Ticks detect heat emissions as well as carbon dioxide emissions from a potential host. Thankfully, masking CO2 is a part of our tick spraying. Mansfield homeowners can literally breathe easier!
- You can remove a tick from your body, but in a very specific way. Don’t try to squash or squeeze the ticket, or try heating them with matches, pouring alcohol or covering them with petroleum jelly. Use tweezers or a tick puller to gently pull the tick out by the head. Don’t twist the tick while pulling.
- Once removed, drop the tick in rubbing alcohol to kill it. Don’t flush it down the toilet, and don’t squish the tick either—squishing the tick can transmit diseases.

Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted mosquitoes and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitoes and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
