The first step in our tick control process involves spraying your yard with an EPA-approved solution. Ticks hide in damp, cold areas, and we use powerful backpack mist blowers to spray in tough-to-reach places. We also spray the yard’s exterior, allowing the time-released solution to create a barrier that repels ticks and mosquitoes for three weeks. After completing the traditional barrier spray, expect an 85-90 percent reduction in ticks, along with a decrease in mosquitoes, gnats, flies, fleas, and other pests.
We produce our own organic tick repellent, made with a surfactant and essential oils. We spray the solution on your yard, and it releases a smell that repels pests, but you won’t notice the solution’s botanical aroma within 24 hours of your treatment. If you request our all-natural barrier spray, expect a 65-80 percent tick reduction that lasts for two weeks.
Once we finish the spray treatment, we find and treat or remove all tick and mosquito breeding areas. This helps reduce the population of young ticks.
Our barrier spray kills adult ticks and creates a barrier that keeps out pests. However, adult female ticks lay thousands of eggs at once, leaving a sizable nymph tick population nearby. We handle this by placing biodegradable tick tubes throughout your yard. Insecticide-treated cotton sits inside each tick tube. Mice take the cotton for housing and the insecticide goes into their bloodstream, transforming the mice into mobile tick exterminators. Young ticks feed on mice often, and as they bite the mice that have interacted with the cotton, the ticks are killed quickly.
