Unlike other pests, ticks thrive in the humidity so common to summers in Metuchen, NJ. Tick spraying is crucial to control tick populations that are common to the area. Stop your tick problems before they start with a call to Tick Shield of Metuchen. Spring isn’t too early to call us – ticks can live at 45 degrees F. Trust our team to ensure you have a summer that is free of ticks and other pests.
Ticks look for wooded or grassy areas where they can easily attach to a host and start feeding. Unfortunately, they are common in the areas where people, pets, and children are most likely to spend time outdoors – patios, swing sets, and porches. A tick can mean more than an annoyance; they spread a host of diseases like, babesiosis, Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, powassan virus disease, anaplasmosis, borrelia, miyamotoi disease, and rocky mountain fever.
The Benefits of Tick Spraying in Metuchen, NJ
Tick spraying for Metuchen protects your yard from these creatures – creatures that are more than a nuisance. Most people consider ticks to be insects, but they actually are closer to spiders and scorpions. Like their family members, their outer shells can make them extremely difficult to kill. They are efficient disease carriers because of their firm attachment to their hosts. They feed slowly, so people don’t often know that a tick has attached itself. For children and pets, that discovery time can be even longer.
The life cycle of a tick makes it difficult to control their populations. Without effective tick spraying in Metuchen, ticks will continue through four stages of development – egg, larva, nymph, and adult. The sooner you begin tick spraying in Metuchen, the sooner you end the cycle. This cycle is also why Tick Shield believes in season long pest control – one spraying can kill the ticks that are alive, but further applications can take care of the early breeding stages. We recommend early application for the most effective results.
The Importance of Tick Spraying for Metuchen Residents
Ticks wait for pets, children, and adults in common areas – so that where our professional team of technicians start. Ticks sit on tips of grass and shrubs; when a host comes near, the tick will quickly let go of the grass or shrub and climb onto the host. Though they can’t jump or fly, they are extremely effective at moving fast and attaching firmly to the host. To avoid tick bites and the diseases they carry from coming near your property, call Tick Shield today.

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 mosquitos 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 mosquitos and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
