Ticks often go undetected until you have a large problem on your hands. These pests often remain hidden and their bites don't itch or hurt, which lets them spread quickly. Once you notice a tick problem in your home, professional tick control is usually required. Over the counter sprays and home remedies can kill some of the ticks in your yard, but they'll keep coming back unless you take care of the core problem. Our treatment process combines two powerful tick elimination methods to kill mature ticks and stop them from returning. Give us a call today to schedule a no-commitment yard evaluation and estimate for free. Our knowledgeable team is always willing to answer any questions so that you can have the information you need to make the right decision about tick control.
Our treatment begins with a barrier spray. For a regular-sized yard, a spray shouldn't take more than twenty minutes. A team of highly-qualified applicators uses professional-quality backpack mist blowers to apply an EPA-approved solution around the yard's perimeter and in high-risk areas where ticks gather. Because the solution is time released, it continues to kill ticks for up to three weeks, providing long-lasting protection.
We also put tick tubes in your yard to lure mice in and use them to kill ticks. Treated cotton is placed inside the tick tubes, and mice take the cotton to build a shelter. As the mice get the insecticide from the cotton on their fur, ticks that come in contact with the mice are killed fast. For the last part of the treatment, we find and remove or treat all tick-breeding places to provide a final layer of protection.
Feel free to spend time away from the house while we're working. Our team can visit your home while you're away and complete a full treatment. For your records, we'll leave a notice of completion on your door detailing the work that we did.
We want you to be completely happy with the results of every treatment. That's why we offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. If there's any reason that you're not happy with a treatment, we'll give you a refund without any questions or hassle.
In addition to our traditional barrier spray, we also offer an organic option. Because our all-natural repellent is a gentler option, it lasts for one less week than a regular spray, but it still reduces the number of ticks by 65-80 percent. In addition, our in-house, organic repellent also helps repel mosquitoes, gnats, spiders, certain ants, and other pests. After we apply this all-natural spray, you will have a botanical aroma that lingers for no more than twenty-four hours.
