Your tick control treatment begins with a barrier spray. We offer two different types: a traditional spray or an organic spray. The traditional spray eliminates at least 85% of adult ticks immediately, while the all-natural spray repels 65 to 85 percent of ticks. A traditional spray lasts for up to 3 weeks, while the organic spray lasts for up to two weeks. Both options are safe for use around children and pets, however, if you’re seeking an eco-friendly option then our all-natural barrier spray is the way to go.
The treatment process is quick. We’ll spray the outside of your yard, which creates a barrier that pests don’t cross. We also spray common tick gathering areas, including around the tree line, the base of fences and walls, and tall grass. It’s OK if you’re not home for your appointment. Our team completes the treatment while you’re away and leaves a completion notice, notifying you of when it’s acceptable to return to the yard.
Our barrier spray gets rid of adult ticks, but there are still young ticks to eliminate. A female tick can lay thousands of eggs at once, making nymph ticks a major concern. Our team places tick tubes around your home, positioned in areas that are inconspicuous while stilling getting great results. The tubes are biodegradable for an eco-friendly treatment, and they work for up to six months.
Tick tubes contain cotton with insecticide, and they take advantage of the fact that mice use the cotton to build housing. The insecticide enters the mice’s bloodstream upon contact. Then, when young ticks attempt to feed on the blood of the mice, the ticks are killed. Our tick tubes have an aggregate effect, meaning that the results only get better as time goes by. When combined with consistent barrier sprays, you’ll likely see over 90 percent of ticks eliminated from your yard.
