Getting Rid of Mosquitoes in Your Southern New Hampshire Backyard

Drive mosquitoes out of your yard before they start biting.

Drive mosquitoes out of your yard before they start biting.

Last week, we told you about some characteristics that mosquitoes find very attractive so you can avoid certain behaviors and take precautions that minimize the bites you receive. While these steps help you avoid these pests, it is best to simply not have them around at all. So how do you get rid of mosquitoes in your backyard or keep them from coming to visit in the first place? In order to be effective in your efforts, it’s important to understand a little about mosquito life.

Mosquitoes don’t live very long, only about a month, but during that timeframe, they are extremely active breeders. A single female mosquito can lay over three hundred eggs during each egg-laying period, and she will have four of these periods during her short lifetime. Of these mosquito larvae, about half of them will be female, each one capable of laying just as many eggs as her mother. So in optimal conditions, your backyard can go from mosquito-free to virtually infested in very little time. If you are trying to rid yourself of mosquitoes or prevent them from calling your property home, you simply have to prevent those optimal conditions.

Mosquitoes proliferate anywhere there is stagnant water.

Mosquitoes proliferate anywhere there is stagnant water.

Water, specifically still water, is essential for mosquito breeding. Female mosquitoes lay eggs anywhere they can find stagnant water, and they don’t need much. It only takes about a teaspoon (or one bottle capful). In order to prevent or reduce mosquitoes, you need to eliminate standing water in your yard. Be sure that you turn over any buckets or kid’s toys that could collect rainwater and routinely check your property for any items that may have collected it. Pour it out if you find it. Poorly drained areas of your yard also hold enough water to allow mosquitoes to breed. Check drainage ditches, pipes, and gutters for blockages that create the opportunity for water to pool and remove any blockages.

How to Avoid a Southern New Hampshire Mosquito

By doing these simple things, you can have a mosquito friend in no time.

By doing these simple things, you can have a mosquito friend in no time.

So you know a few people that mosquitoes just won’t leave alone at an outdoor gathering while they completely ignore you. Have you ever wondered why your friend is a magnet and you seem to be a repellant?  Mosquitoes are very selective,  know what they want and know where to find it.  Here’s what they’re looking for:

 

  1.  Type “O” Blood – While it will be hard to change your blood type, mosquitoes find those who are type “O” very, very attractive. Some scientists believe this is related to amino acid and protein levels in this type of blood.
  2. Want You to Have a Drink – Whether your preference is beer, wine, or a margarita, mosquitoes a drawn to those who have been drinking alcohol. Alcohol changes your blood chemistry, and mosquitoes just can’t get enough of it. Cheers!
  3. Persuade You to Get Sweaty – It doesn’t matter if you are working or working out; mosquitoes like sweat. For them, it works like an expensive perfume. So go for a run or mow the grass with a push mower, they won’t be able to resist you.
  4. Choose Dark Clothing – Mosquitoes really don’t care as much for pastels or whites. They’d much prefer you look dark and mysterious. Dig out that little black dress or a nice navy shirt and you’re to be a winner.
  5. Like the Pregnant One – Mosquitoes really love moms-to-be. Again, this is probably related to blood chemistry, but they find these ladies especially enticing.

 

Protect yourself and your family this mosquito season.

Protect yourself and your family this mosquito season.

Okay, we realize you aren’t really trying to attract a mosquito. You’d much prefer to drive them away. They’re pesky, painful, and carry diseases no one wants. Of course, some of the characteristics mosquitoes love cannot be helped, but knowing what mosquitoes find attractive can help you make choices accordingly. If you have type “O” blood, that’s not going to change, but your choice of drink can.

Combat the Growing Tick Population in Southern New Hampshire

Despite a cold winter, the tick population is increasing.

Despite a cold winter, the tick population is increasing.

If you haven’t started thinking about tick prevention, now is a great time to do so. New Hampshire station WMUR Channel 9 reported this past week that tick populations may be on the rise. This conclusion is based on information from state entomologists and the CDC. Anytime the tick population increases, there is an increased risk for contractinga tick-borne disease. Such diseases include Lyme disease, babessiosis, and anaplasmosis. To many, an increase in the tick population may seem a little far-fetched since this past winter was so harsh, but it really isn’t.

 

Ticks are actually quite adept at surviving even brutal winter conditions. They can even remain active throughout winter if the ground is not frozen. Of course, our New Hampshire ground was plenty frozen this past winter, but that doesn’t necessarily kill them. Dr. Thomas Mather from the Department of Plant Sciences and Entomology at the University of Rhode Island illustrated on TickEncounter.org (an education project based at this university) that deer ticks can even survive underneath a blanket of snow. Typically, in very frigid conditions, ticks hibernate like bears. They may take shelter in rotten logs or underneath fallen trees to help them survive until spring.

 

Reduce your risk of tick-borne disease by eliminating ticks in your yard.

Reduce your risk of tick-borne disease by eliminating ticks in your yard.

With an even greater tick population in the forecast this season, it is time to start taking precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your pets from tick bites and the diseases they carry. Vigilance is always the best defense against ticks. Be sure that you check yourself, your kids, and your pets regularly, especially after time spent in wooded or grassy areas. Remove any attached ticks promptly because the longer a tick is attached the more likely it is to transmit a disease if it is infected. Use tick repellents during outdoor activity, especially on your shoes. And be sure to treat your yard for ticks. Most of the time you and your family spend outdoor will be in your own yard, so reduce the number of ticks in that environment by calling Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire. Our two-step tick treatment program is extremely effective at eliminating ticks because it targets them two different ways – barrier spray and tick tubes.

Lyme Disease Impacts Southern New Hampshire Pets Too

Last week, we talked about Lyme Disease because May is Lyme Disease Awareness month. That article focused on Lyme Disease in people, but humans aren’t the only ones who can contract Lyme Disease. Pets can too, and this fact is making news in our area. Parade Magazine recently ran an article indicating that pets in the Northeastern USA, which of course includes southern New Hampshire, are more at risk of becoming ill with Lyme. Why? The population of black-legged ticks (or deer tick as it is commonly called) is larger in the Northeast than in many other regions of the county, and these ticks are the primary carriers of Lyme. In our area, your pets could be exposed to Lyme Disease if they are bitten by a tick, and dogs are more prone to tick bites and subsequent infection than cats.

 

Lyme Disease can affect your pets too.

Lyme Disease can affect your pets too.

Lyme Disease symptoms in dogs are not the same as they are in humans. Dogs do not develop the EM or “bulls eye” rash that is so indicative of the disease. Rather, they often go lame suddenly; experience extreme pain; have swollen, feverish joints; are lethargic; and lose their appetite. The disease is serious though, like humans, pets can recover after antibiotic treatment. A dog’s risk of contracting Lyme Disease increases the longer a tick is attached. So what can you do to help prevent exposure?

 

First, you should check your dog routinely for ticks; daily is best. A black-legged tick in the nymph stage is extremely small (the size of a comma in newsprint), so great care should be taken. If you find any attached ticks, remove them immediately using tweezers and a firm, steady pull. Jerking the tick could cause mouthparts to break off, which can also increase your dog’s risk. There are also many tick prevention products available for pets than can help repel ticks, so talk to your veterinarian about which may be best for your dog or cat.

Finally, be sure to treat your yard for ticks. Most of your pet’s outdoor time will probably be in your own yard. Making that area as tick-free as possible will reduce your pet’s exposure. Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire uses a two-step method for eliminating ticks. First, we apply a barrier spray that will kill the ticks currently in your yard. Second, we utilize “tick-tubes”. Tick tubes contain fibrous, tick-killing material rodents like to use in their nests. Ticks proliferate using rodents as hosts, so rodent nests are typically infested with ticks. By utilizing this material, we are able to target ticks in the areas they frequent. Through these two methods, the tick population on your property can be noticeably reduced, and you can get started with our introductory pricing, only a $99 investment.

 

Don’t take chances with your family’s health – the human part of your family or the four-legged part. Contact Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire today and let us be part of Lyme Disease prevention at your home. We want to keep your dogs happy, healthy, and wagging too.

Be Aware! It’s Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Lyme Disease is carried by the deer tick.

Lyme Disease is carried by the deer tick.

Backed by many of the top Lyme-focused non-profit groups, May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. It is an international initiative, and awareness events are occurring in other countries, as well as the USA. If you don’t know much about Lyme Disease, there is no better time to learn about it, especially for those of us living in Southern New Hampshire. Our state borders some of the most Lyme Disease dense states, and the number of cases reported in our state ranks within the top fifteen in the country. Because the disease is so prevalent in our area, it is important for you to know where it comes from, be able to identify its symptoms, and know how to protect yourself and your family.

 

Lyme Disease is caused by the Borrelia burgdorfer bacteria and is transmitted through the bite of the black-legged tick (commonly called the deer tick). In early stages, the symptoms of Lyme Disease mimic the flu – headache, fever, chills, muscle and joint aches, and disturbed sleep. A distinctive rash, Erythema migrans (EM) or “bull’s-eye” rash, also appears in many cases. In later stages, neurological symptoms including muscle twitches, tremors, and Bel’s palsy may present themselves. If untreated, arthritis can develop, and neurological symptoms may worsen. The disease typically responds well to antibiotic treatment.

As with any disease that is transmitted through an insect bite, the very best protection against Lyme Disease is to prevent being bitten by ticks. While not all ticks carry Lyme, it is impossible to know whether a tick does or not without scientific testing, so it’s best to just avoid them. Since ticks live in wooded and densely grassy areas, it is important to check for them regularly, especially after you have been traversing such an area. Tick repellents are also very effective at minimizing the number of ticks that may get on you. If you are concerned about chemicals, concentrating application on your shoes will help repel ticks living in the grass.

 

To help control ticks on your property, keep your grass cut regularly and treat your property. Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire utilizes barrier sprays and tick tubes to help eliminate ticks and control the population in your yard. Our two-step method effectively eliminates up to 90% of ticks within your treated property. By reducing your exposure to ticks, you can reduce your and your family’s chances of contracting Lyme Disease. Don’t wait. Do something positive during Lyme Disease Awareness Month to prevent the disease. Help reduce the Southern New Hampshire tick population by calling us today and starting with your property.

Lyme Disease in New Hampshire: No Immunity

Adult and Nymph Deer ticks

This side-by-side comparison shows an adult deer tick (left) , with a nymph deer tick (right). Both are very small.

Like many other serious diseases, Lyme disease is no respecter of persons. It strikes the young, old, male, female, overlooked, and famous. This past week, 80’s pop star Debbie Gibson revealed on her blog that she has been battling Lyme Disease. She details her struggles in this announcement, and she is not alone. Other celebrities to have been diagnosed include Jamie Lyn Sigler, star of The Sopranos TV series; Former President George W. Bush; and actor Alec Baldwin. While these cases have received notoriety because of the persons diagnosed are famous, many people contract the illness. According to the CDC, nearly 30,000 cases are reported each year, and many more cases are suspected.

 

The effects of Lyme Disease on the body are serious. The symptoms mimic flu symptoms in many respects (fever, chills, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes) but also include neurological problems. If left untreated, it can cause permanent nerve damage and arthritis. For these people, Lyme Disease truly changes their lives. Early detection and treatment can prevent many of the more severe complications. However, as with most diseases, the very best treatment is prevention. Since the illness can have such a profound impact, it is important to be educated about it and use that information.

 

Tick life cycle chart

Tick life cycle chart

Lyme Disease is a vector borne illness. It is carried by the black-legged tick, commonly known as the “deer tick”. While cold weather simply causes these ticks to hibernate, they proliferate during the summer months, especially in wooded or grassy areas. You are much more likely to contract Lyme during the summer months. People who contract the illness are often bitten by a tick in the nymph stage of development. This is not because more ticks in this stage carry the disease but rather because these ticks are less likely to be detected. The longer an infected tick is attached, the more likely it is to transmit Lyme to its host. Black-legged ticks in the nymph stage are only the size of a comma in newsprint, so often they remain attached until they let go.

 

The best way to prevent being bitten is to prevent exposure to ticks. This is where Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire can help. Our tick treatments are high effective at eliminating ticks on your property and keeping the population under control all season. Help protect your family, guests, and pets from Lyme Disease this season by contacting us today. (Yes, our furry friends can get it too.) Lyme disease can strike anyone, so don’t allow you or those you love to be a statistic.

Ticks are Here in Southern New Hampshire

They’re here. Not the supernatural forces from Poltergeist but tiny ticks that have already been spotted in Southern New Hampshire. Despite our not so pleasant weather later, ticks have already started to emerge around our area, which means new cases of Lyme Disease will soon be coming as well. The state of New Hampshire estimates that 60% of the deer ticks here are infected with Lyme Disease and there are additional tick-borne diseases out there as well.

Ticks have arrived in Southern New Hampshire

What you are most likely seeing are the young, nymph ticks that are more active from early spring to late summer. These nymph ticks are also the ones most likely to spread disease and they can be very small and difficult to see. Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire offers some tips, called the 6 C’s, on how to protect your family from the Southern New Hampshire ticks and the diseases they can spread.

1. Clear – Clear out the areas where ticks thrive: moist, shady areas like dead tree limbs and compost piles.

2. Clean– Keep your yard clean, your lawn cut short and the perimeter free of overgrowth. This will prevent ticks from finding places to hide.

3. Check their hiding places – Ticks likes to hide while waiting for their next blood meal to come along. Check your fences, rocky area and retaining walls. They also like wet areas like creek beds and ponds.

4. Choose plants – There are a variety of plants that deter deer, the favored host of ticks. Using these plants in your yard will keep deer and the ticks hitching a ride from entering your yard.

Protecting your pets from ticks is important.

Protecting your pets from ticks is important.

5. Care for family pets – Your pets are just as likely to get a tick bite in your yard and can suffer from Lyme Diseases as well. Make sure you check your pets carefully and frequently and stay up to date with their flea and tick control from your veterinarian.

6. Call the Pros – To eliminate up to 90% of ticks in your yard, call Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire. Our proven 2-step tick control and prevention service utilizes a 21-day barrier sprays to eliminate ticks on the vegetation in your yard and tick tubes that target the younger nymph ticks residing in rodents dens.

If you do find a tick on yourself, family member or your pets, proper removal is important. While there are many techniques and tools out there, the Center for Disease Control suggests using a regular pair of tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible and steadily pull upward. Avoid any twisting motion that could leave the mouth of the tick in tact. Follow up by cleaning the area with soap and water or rubbing alcohol.

Now is the time to call Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire. The trees in our area are just starting to bud and will quickly become favored areas for the ticks we have already seen. Having our barrier spray and tick tubes protecting

Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire has been licensed for 15 years to ensure our services are at the highest, most effective level.

 

2. How many products will the company be using throughout the season? Some companies use the same product at the same concentration throughout the season.

Our barrier spray program eliminates and prevents mosquitoes and ticks the entire season.

3. How long does the product last? Some companies use the cheapest products available on the market and you will notice that in the level of protection. The cheaper products will not weather well.

How Ticks Are Affecting Wildlife and Why It’s Important to Control them in Your New Hampshire Yard

Living in New Hampshire, you have probably about the declining moose population in our state. Moose are important to our culture but their numbers are rapidly decreasing in New Hampshire with estimates ranging from 7,500 five years ago to about 4,500 today. One of the main reasons for this decline is due to the small ticks so prevalent in our area and the diseases they transmit. According to the Center for Disease Control, New Hampshire had the highest number of

recorded cases of tick-borne Lyme Disease in 2012. Sources say that actual cases are ten times higher than those that are actually reported. That’s why Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire wants to help protect you and your family from ticks and the diseases they carry.

 

Ticks not only have a detrimental affect moose but humans and other animals as well. But recent findings indicate that small mice, the favored host for the ticks that transmit Lyme Disease, are not affected in the least bit. The study lead by Sarah Lawrence University found that mice with hundreds of ticks survived without contracted Lyme Disease as easily as mice with only a few ticks. With the increased urban renewal in New Hampshire, these mice, and the ticks that hitch a ride with them, are coming closer and closer to our yards and homes.

 

That’s why now it is more important than ever to control ticks in your yard. Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire can help you control the tick population with our two-step approach. Step one includes

tick traps strategically placed in your yard, optimally in the early spring, and again in late summer. The traps contain treated cotton that is found by mice and taken back to their dens to be used as nesting material. The cotton eliminates ticks residing on the mice and dwelling in their dens but does not harm the mice or other animals. Step two is followed with our highly effective barrier spray treatment that is applied every 21-days, knocking out the ticks in your yard and on your foliage. Effectively eliminating ticks in the yard and within the rodent’s nests effectively stops future generations from forming as well.

 

With 300,000 reported diagnoses of Lyme Disease every year and New Hampshire having the highest number of cases, protecting your family is the utmost importance this tick season. Contact Mosquito Squad of Southern New Hampshire today to sign up for our season long intensive tick control and prevention program that effectively eliminates up to 90% of ticks on your treated property. We are ready to wage the war on ticks and answer any questions you may have.
