Our tick treatment begins with our popular barrier spray, which also kills mosquitoes. A team of knowledgeable specialists visits your home and sprays the perimeter of your yard and tick-gathering areas, such as woodpiles. We use professional-grade backpack mist blowers, so we can access hard-to-reach areas, ensuring that no ticks can hide. Our traditional barrier spray kills 85-90 percent of ticks instantly, and you’ll notice a major reduction in other pests, including mosquitoes, flies, and fleas.
If you’re looking for an organic option, request that we use our all-natural solution for the barrier spray. We make the organic tick solution ourselves using a surfactant and essential oils, and it works by releasing a scent that repels ticks. This solution doesn’t aim to kill ticks, but it results in a 65-80 percent reduction in ticks and lasts for two weeks. After the spray, you’ll notice a botanical smell, which goes away completely in 24 hours after the spray.
We know you have a busy schedule, which is why our team is able to treat your yard while you’re away from home. If you’re not home while we’re working, we’ll leave a notice of completion on your door so that you know exactly when we arrived and finished the job.
After the barrier spray, we find and treat or remove all tick-breeding areas to get rid of young ticks. However, adult female ticks lay thousands of eggs at once, so we use another layer of protection for your yard.
We place biodegradable tick tubes in hard-to-see areas, designed to eliminate young ticks. The tubes contain cotton with an insecticide that mice take to build housing. Mice are the most common feeding target for young ticks, and once ticks bite the mice, they’re eliminated quickly. Our high-quality tick tubes provide six months of protection before requiring replacement.
