- Why Mosquito Hunters
- Zika & More
At Mosquito Hunters™, we’re best known for our mosquito control treatments. But we also know that mosquitoes aren’t the only lawn pests in Livingston. That’s why we encourage local families to consider tick prevention strategies in addition to mosquito control.
Like mosquitoes, ticks arrive in Livingston in mid-spring, with tick season lasting until partway through autumn. Also like mosquitoes, ticks feed on the blood of people and mammals, which they reach by biting their victims’ skin. Finally like mosquitoes, ticks can transmit illnesses with a single bite.
In the case of mosquitoes, families need to worry about conditions like West Nile and Zika virus. With ticks, the conditions include Lyme disease and a host of other illnesses, like Powassan disease and babesiosis.
To help keep your family safe from tick-borne disease, Mosquito Hunters offers tick treatments to families in Livingston. These treatments will neutralize ticks on contact and form a barrier to prevent future tick activity. Each barrier treatment remains active for at least three weeks, and we offer Season Pass plans to provide coverage throughout tick season.
The best part? Our tick treatments use the same product and application techniques as our mosquito control services. That means each of our treatments performs double-duty, protecting your lawn against ticks and mosquitoes.
Many families in Livingston are surprised to learn we can prevent ticks and mosquitoes in a single treatment. To do this, we use a treatment product containing pyrethroids, a synthetic form of pyrethrins. Found in chrysanthemum flowers, pyrethrins are one of nature’s most potent pest-fighting compounds. In fact, you’ll find pyrethrins in a number of household products, including anti-lice shampoos.
Thanks to this active ingredient, our treatments have the power to knock out mosquitoes and ticks on contact. This allows us to dramatically reduce mosquito and tick populations within hours of treatment.
Meanwhile, our treatment product bonds with your lawn’s vegetation, forming a thin, defensive barrier. When ticks and mosquitoes come into contact with your lawn’s vegetation, the barrier will neutralize them too. This barrier will prevent new tick and mosquito activity for the next three weeks, a period covered by our Hunters Happiness Promise.
Mosquito and tick prevention treatments from Mosquito Hunters are popular with homeowners in Livingston, as well as nearby areas like Short Hills, Parsippany, Millburn, Caldwells, Springfield, The Oranges, and Maplewood. They’re also a great choice for local businesses and civic properties with outdoor customer areas.
