The Modern Solution
A complete mosquito and tick control service in New England not only eliminates breeding sites and targets hot spots around your home, but it also includes long-term prevention.
OUR HOMECARE VECTOR PROGRAM is a targeted application using effective, but low toxicity materials to protect your family and yard from mosquito, flea, and tick-borne illness throughout the entire season.
Modern Pest Services’ HomeCare Vector Program: the modern solution to tick, flea, and mosquito prevention this summer.
Our program consists of 5 monthly treatments between May and September and has proven to effectively reduce flea, tick, and mosquito populations.
Modern first concentrates on eliminating the source of the mosquito resting areas. Our service begins with a careful inspection, locating pest “hot spots” in order to help minimize conditions that promote pest activity.
An application is applied to areas of infestation to reduce any adult populations and prevent further reproduction.
Follow-up inspections and treatments are conducted over the summer months when ticks are most active.
At Modern Pest Services, our number one priority is to keep you and your loved ones safe.
Our team is highly trained — they always make sure to avoid applying materials in places that your family and pets may have frequent contact. The material is non-transferrable once dried, and your family and pets can enjoy your yard after a few short hours.
What is “Vector”?
Vector-borne diseases are illnesses that can be transferred to humans via parasites. The viruses and bacteria that are transferred can be transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other insects.
Many of the diseases that these insects transfer to humans can cause serious health issues, and even death. Our HomeCare Vector program is designed to focus on the areas of your property where you and your family frequent the most when enjoying the outdoors and limiting the number of insects that could cause harm to your family.
Your home and surrounding areas are a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, they are also carriers of several diseases such as EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis), Zika, and West Nile virus.
Mosquitoes generally start appearing early in the summer months, depending on the weather patters, and can be severe nuisance to any outdoor activity. Most common mosquito resting areas are under foliage, wooded sections, shaded damp areas around the home, and any area where the bulk of mosquito populations rest during the day.
Fleas are small, wingless, 1⁄12–1⁄16th inches long in size. They are covered in spines with piercing mouthparts. Most diseases that are spread by fleas will infect your pets while the infected adult flea is feeding.
Additionally, parasites can be transmitted through accidental ingestion of flea eggs. Flea bites are usually found on the ankles and legs. Pain may last a few minutes, hours, or days depending on one’s sensitivity.
American Dog Ticks, Brown Dog Ticks and Black Legged Deer Ticks are the most common species. Infestations have been on the rise here over the past few years, which is a large concern.
Ticks not only cause discomfort and irritation, they are carries of diseases such as Lyme Disease and Powassan. Ticks cannot hop or fly and must latch on to their targets from elevated surfaces such as tall grass and overgrown wooded areas. The perimeter of your home is susceptible to infestation.
