Andover, MA Pest Control

Keeping Mosquitoes & Ticks Out Of Andover Yards

Twinned with its namesake of Andover in the UK, the growing village of Andover, is a popular bedroom community in the Massachusetts metro area. While it may not look like it, the city was established as early as 1642 by intrepid settlers in the New World. They may not have known it then, but these colonists would become an important part of the northern East Coast history.

Andover settlers brought many things to early America, including unique agricultural techniques, honeybees, and architectural influences. However, they were not prepared to face the unique fauna challenges of North America, including pest infestations. Not only are pests a huge part of life in Andover, but they can keep home and business owners from living the lives they want to lead.

The team at Mosquito Busters believes that no one should have their life negatively impacted by some of the more dangerous pests innovating new ways to stay safe in the 21st century and beyond.

The Benefits Of Professional Mosquito Control In Andover

Of all the pest species found in Andover, perhaps the worst of all are mosquitoes. Not only do these pests consume human blood and leave itchy bumps behind, but they can also spread some of the most serious illnesses in the pest world.

Here are some reasons why investing in professional mosquito control in Andover, MA is always worth the time and effort:

Professional mosquito control is get-and-forget, meaning that you will never have to remember to treat, prep, or care about mosquitoes on your own. 

Professional mosquito control is extremely cost-efficient. Instead of buying your own materials and accompanying labor costs, professional control is one all-inclusive price. 

While many other over-the-counter sprays are dangerous or toxic to homeowners, professional control measures are both safe and environmentally friendly to the Andover area.

The Dangers Of Aedes Vexans Mosquitoes In Your Andover Yard

Of all the mosquito species found in Andover, the Aedes vexans is arguably the most dangerous one of all. These creatures are referred to by locals as the inland floodwater mosquito, tomguito, or cosmopolitan mosquitoes. Make no mistake – these are not pests to keep around longer than necessary.

Aedes vexans mosquitoes pose many dangers such as:

The spread of dog heartworm, deadly rabbit disease (myxomatosis), and swelling of the brain. 

Itchy bites that make being outside extremely uncomfortable. 

Secondary infections from scratching or bleeding. 

To protect those you love from the effects of the Aedes vexans, call the Andover branch of Mosquito Busters today.

Four Ways To Control Ticks In Andover, MA

Ticks have a way of putting us all on edge. While not every tick bite can or will result in the spread of diseases, the threat is always present. Various species of ticks, including the lone star tick, the dog tick, and the deer tick, are rising in number around residential lawns and gardens. In order to keep them out, you'll need proper control measures.

Here's how Mosquito Busters suggests Andover homeowners control their backyard ticks:

  1. Cut grass once a week during peak season. Do not let it grow beyond a manageable length. 
  2. Store all firewood logs at least 25 feet away from your house. 
  3. Create a stone perimeter between rows of trees and your property to discourage ticks from migrating too close to the house. 
  4. Don't grow too much vegetation close to the sides of your house. 

If ticks continue to be a problem for your home, further professional measures will be needed. Andover home and business owners have trusted the team at Mosquito Busters to keep their properties free and clear for many years.
