Our program is designed to drastically reduce the numbers of potentially disease carrying pests such as ticks entering your lawn area or pests such as ants from entering your home.
The tick life cycle is very complex with multiple hosts and our program of monthly applications from April through October helps control all stages of the black legged tick, often referred to as the deer tick which carries Lyme disease as well as other blood borne diseases that can cause serious illness or even death. A perimeter of approximately 12 feet is established; typically this is six feet into the wood line and six feet into the turf or mulch. This creates an effective barrier against ticks crawling in from wooded areas. Our Deer and Small Animal Repellant and Winter Deer Sprays can also complement our Tick Control program keeping deer out of your property.
Mosquito control is important because mosquitos can spread potentially deadly diseases such as West Nile virus and EEE to humans. Our treatment plan involves a wood line perimeter application and treatment of shrubs in planting beds. In addition, we treat the mosquitos’ daytime resting areas around your home and property where mosquitos like to shelter from the heat of the day including the house foundation, under decks and under stairs. While these applications will not prevent new mosquitoes from migrating to your property, populations will be reduced over time due to the treatment of their daytime resting areas.
Includes the application of an appropriate insecticide around the foundation of the house to eliminate colonies and prevent new ones from becoming established.
