Tick-related illnesses affect tens of thousands of Americans each year, which means that ticks can be quite dangerous. By hiding in hard-to-see areas, ticks go undetected until your home has an infestation. If you notice ticks living in your yard, a professional treatment is the best way to get rid of them. Many over-the-counter products help for a few hours, but the ticks keep coming back unless you treat the root cause. Find out how a personalized tick treatment would benefit you by contacting us to schedule a free, no-commitment home evaluation and estimate. Our specialists want you to be fully informed before making a decision, so we're always happy to answer any questions.
Our tick treatments combine a barrier spray with carefully positioned tick tubes for long-lasting tick protection. For the barrier spray, we use powerful backpack mist blowers to apply a time-released solution around the exterior of your yard and on tick gathering locations, providing protection against pests for three weeks. If you have a normal-sized yard, the spray shouldn't take longer than 20 minutes to complete, and then it takes 30 minutes for the solution to dry and your yard to be ready for use again.
Next, tick tubes are placed in non-intrusive areas to kill ticks without bothering you while you're outside. These tubes contain insecticide-treated cotton, which mice gather to build houses. As soon as the mice get the insecticide on their fur, the insecticide kills ticks that try to feed on the mice. We use biodegradable tubes, so you don't have to worry about disposing of them. Lastly, we search for all tick and mosquito breeding areas and then treat or remove them.
Feel free to leave the house on your appointment date, as we're able to work while you're away. If you're not home when we finish, we leave a paper on your door that details when we arrived and what we did.
Every treatment you get is covered by our 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. This means that if you're unhappy with a treatment, we'll give you a full refund without asking any questions.
We make an in-house, all-natural tick repellent that reduces the number of ticks in your yard by 65-80 percent. If you're searching for a green treatment, ask us to use this solution for a barrier spray. While a traditional spray provides continued protection for three weeks, an organic spray repels pests for two weeks, as it's a gentler treatment.
