Natural Mosquito Control on Martha’s Vineyard
Mosquitoes are active spring through fall on the island and prefer a warm, moist environment. They are more than a nuisance, as they also pose health risks to humans and our pets. Even when summer winds down, the island remains at risk for viruses carried by mosquitoes. Mosquito-borne diseases are spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Control the mosquito population near your home to reduce the risk. Beginning routine sprays earlier in the season controls breeding and thus reduces the population.
All Natural Tick Control on Martha’s Vineyard
There are more ticks in more places than ever before, and over the past two decades, tick-borne illnesses have increased, especially on Martha’s Vineyard. Our routine program eliminates ticks in all life-stages without the use of toxic chemicals. Ticks are active early spring through fall. While some ticks go dormant during the winter, deer ticks remain active as long as the temperature is above freezing. Routine and consistent property treatments are key to maintaining tick populations. Protect against tick bites around the home and therefore prevent tick-borne disease such as Lyme disease.
Martha’s Vineyard Organic Deer Repellent
Deer identify a plentiful landscape and tend to stay close until the food sources are depleted. Pure Solutions deer repellent service lets you enjoy the beauty and safety of your backyard by providing integrated, natural solutions that deter deer from feeding on your property.
Frequently Asked Questions
What months are mosquitoes most active in Massachusetts?
Ticks can be active as long as temperatures are above freezing. Our regular season runs from March to December, and is fully customizable for more frequent treatments during the height of the tick and mosquito season. Ticks breed in the winter and lay eggs in the spring, so late and early season treatments are important to prevent eggs from being laid on your property.
Are the mosquitoes bad in Massachusetts?
Mosquitoes can be present in Boston, especially during the summer months. The level of mosquito activity and nuisance can vary depending on factors such as weather conditions, time of day, and proximity to bodies of water. In recent years, there have been occasional reports of mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis in Massachusetts, including in some areas around Boston. It's important to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites, such as wearing long-sleeved clothing and using insect repellent, especially during peak mosquito hours at dawn and dusk.
How often should you fertilize your lawn in Massachusetts?
Our program is structured around 5 rounds of fertilization, starting in April with treatments every 45-60 days. At Pure Solutions, we use organic slow release fertilizers complete with proper nutrients, that include microbial and beneficial organisms which are necessary to maintain a healthy soil life.
What is the average cost for lawn service in Massachusetts?
Our organic lawn care programs are priced based on serviceable area on each property and is customized based on soil test results and feedback from technicians and clients.
When should I aerate my lawn in Massachusetts?
The best time to aerate your lawn in Massachusetts is during the growing season in the fall, between mid-August and mid-October. This timing allows the grass to recover and grow before the winter sets in. Aeration can also be done in the spring, between mid-April and mid-May, before the lawn enters its peak growing season. It's important to consider the current condition of your lawn before deciding to aerate. If your lawn is suffering from drought stress, disease, or pest infestations, it may be best to wait until these issues are resolved before aerating.
