Ticks Can Be Deadly: How & Why We Treat Them for Customers

Grasshopper Gardens - Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Your yard is a sanctuary to all kinds of insects, animals, and plants. It’s also your own personal sanctuary. And it isn’t news that insects are important to the overall environment, but sometimes they can be pests, no matter how much they offer to the circle of life. And while ticks are common and often harmless, they can be deadly. Learn how we can treat your yard for ticks and keep you and your family (and pets!) safe from a potentially deadly tick bite.

What Are Ticks?

Ticks are small, blood-sucking insects. They’re small and range in size, from hard to spot to obvious.

Where Do They Live?

Ticks often live in moist and humid environments, particularly in or near wooded or grassy areas. Your yard is most likely no stranger to them, even if you haven’t been bitten before.

What Do Tick Bites Do?

Tick bites can cause pain, swelling, rashes, blisters or worse — if you’re allergic, you may experience breathing problems. Some ticks carry diseases and if not treated, tick bites can cause catastrophic health problems.

How We Treat Your yard and Perimeter for Ticks

  • We create a protective barrier around your lawn and living area that kills and prevents ticks for up to 30 days.
  • In fact, our pest control deals with a wide range of insects including ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, spiders, ants, and much more.

Two types of treatments to suit your needs:

  1. Wood line spray: An application that is sprayed along the wood line surrounding the perimeter of your lawn and landscape.
  2. Lawn treatment: A granular application applied to the entire lawn area.

Both treatments kill ticks in any life stage and prevent them from coming back for 30 days.

Our process:

A technician will survey your lawn and wood line area to determine the best application to meet your needs. Tick control is typically applied in spring, early summer and fall, but can be administered at any time of the year.

Call or email today and we’ll help you come up with a tick and pest control plan to keep your lawn and family healthy.
