Kill on Contact with Tick Spraying Services in Westford
The first step in successful tick control is to eliminate the tick colonies that live on your property. There are likely ticks living in your property’s trees, shrubs, grass, and yard debris, such as piles of leaves. While ticks can’t jump or fly, they can stalk hosts and crawl up objects to contact humans or animals eventually. Learn more about ticks and their behaviors. When we spray for ticks, our special formula kills them on contact.
Mosquito Shield has studied ticks for more than 15 years and understands how they act, find hosts, and eat. We developed our spray formula, equipment, and techniques to attack tick colonies at their source. Our team visits your location and assesses your property, targeting areas that most commonly harbor ticks such as tall grass, where ticks will wait to attach to passersby. We’ll spray these areas with our water-repellent formula, which sticks to elements in your yard for long-lasting results. Get to know Mosquito Shield.
Mask CO2 to Stop Attracting Blood-Feeding Parasites
Ticks cannot digest solids. Instead, they dribble saliva into wounds to dissolve the tissues and consume the resulting matter. Ticks’ saliva contains a ton of bacteria and protozoa, marking these parasites as some of the most dangerous disease vectors in the world. Read about Lyme disease, the most common virus associated with tick bites. This is why it’s so important to trust Mosquito Shield with tick spraying services in Westford – to get pest control that really protects your family from insect-related harms.
Ticks, mosquitoes, and other blood-sucking parasites find and stalk their hosts using carbon dioxide (CO2) that humans and animals emit during exhalation. Mosquito Shield effectively masks CO2, making it invisible to ticks. With no CO2 trail to follow, ticks will not target your property. This capability is what makes Mosquito Shield so much more successful than alternative control methods such as anti-tick bug sprays.

More About the Mosquito Shield Approach
Mosquito Shield is the leader in professional mosquito and tick control. We take a three-pronged approach mosquito and tick protection: kill current pests; mask the CO2 that attracts new pests; and repel pests from your home. Our proprietary Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB) represents more than 15 years of product research and development, and our FlexBlend spray technology maximizes the effectiveness of MPB.
MPB gives you several options for pest control. It kills harboring mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies and other flying insects along with ticks, and it simultaneously repels airborne insects and prevents new pest infestations. Our treatment schedules are flexible so that you see the best results during peak mosquito and tick season. We add our Rain Shield blend to each spray so that treatments withstand light to moderate rain storms.
Our licensed technicians are trained in product application, mosquito and tick behavior, and species identification. We educate our techs to “think like a mosquito” while evaluating properties to find problem areas. They will also study weather and property conditions to take a holistic approach to your pest control treatment.

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.
