Step one of our tick control treatment involves a traditional barrier spray, which is also a popular mosquito control method. Using backpack mist blowers, we apply an EPA-approved solution around the yard’s perimeter on the bottom of walls and fences. We also focus on areas where ticks gather, such as tall grass, along your tree line, and around woodpiles. The time-released solution immediately kills up to 90 percent of ticks and keeps ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests out of the yard for up to three weeks. For the best results, it’s recommended that we apply a spray treatment every 21 days for the full length of tick season.
We can also use an all-natural tick repellent with our barrier spray—ideal for customers seeking an eco-friendly pest solution. The organic repellent features essential oils that give off an aroma that ticks, mosquitoes, and other pests avoid. However, you won’t be able to detect the smell within 24 hours. Our organic spray treatment repels about 80 percent of ticks and keeps them away from your home for up to two weeks.
Nymph ticks are tiny pests that are extremely hard to see. These are often the ticks that latch on to the family dog and cause an outbreak. To combat this, we put biodegradable tick tubes around your yard in inconspicuous places. The tick tubes contain cotton with insecticide, and they use mice to eliminate nymph ticks. Mice are lured to the tubes, as they take the cotton for housing. The insecticide enters their bloodstream so that when nymph ticks bite the mice, the ticks die quickly.
