Our traditional barrier spray treatment uses a solution that instantly kills ticks and mosquitoes on contact, and the time-released formula continues working for up to three weeks. Using powerful backpack mist blowers, our team sprays the perimeter of your yard and common tick-gathering areas, such as the base of walls and fences and woodpiles. For an average-size yard, the spray shouldn’t take more than 60 minutes, and the solution dries in a half-hour so that your yard is safe for use quickly.
We also provide an all-natural barrier spray for customers looking for an eco-friendly solution to their tick problem. We make the organic solution ourselves using a surfactant and essential oils, carefully chosen for their effective repellent properties. An all-natural barrier spray repels ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, certain types of ants, and other pests, but the solution doesn’t aim to kill them. The gentle solution repels 65 to 80 percent of ticks and protects your yard for up to 14 days before requiring another treatment.
Whether you choose a traditional or organic barrier spray, the treatment primarily kills adult ticks. We also find and treat or remove all tick breeding locations to reduce the number of young ticks. For further protection, we place tick tubes in your yard.
We set biodegradable tick tubes in your yard to target young ticks, and we position them in inconspicuous areas that don’t bother people or pets. The tubes have insecticide-treated cotton, which attracts mice that use it for housing. As the mice are exposed to the cotton, the insecticide goes into their blood, transforming them into mobile tick exterminators. Mice are the most common target for young ticks to feed on, and ticks are killed quickly once they bite the mice.
Our high-quality tick tubes last for six months before requiring replacement.
