We use perimeter spray treatments that are eco-friendly by limiting the amount of pesticide being applied and targeting the areas where people most frequently come into contact with ticks. By treating your property in the early spring, late spring and again in the fall, we can dramatically reduce the tick population in your yard.
The products used today for tick control are much less toxic than in the past, and are used in very low concentrations. Additionally, Bifenthrin and permethrin do not leach through soil; these chemicals are degraded by soil micro-organisms within the top 4 cm of the soil surface.
The following diseases are spread by ticks in our area:
By treating your property in the early spring, late spring and again in the fall, we can dramatically reduce your risk of tick borne disease.
*Note: Pyrethroid products should not be applied around fish-containing ponds or streams.
