How to Protect Your Family and Pets from Ticks and Mosquitoes This Spring

In a 2015 study more than 50% of Ticks were found to carry some form of disease. Considering the fact that an adult tick can lay upwards of 100 eggs PER DAY, you may feel outnumbered. Zika and other mosquito Borne illnesses continue to spread rapidly throughout the U.S. When you've burned that last citronella candle and feel helpless against Ticks and Mosquitoes, we have a better solution. 

Ticks and Mosquitoes require moisture and cover. Leaf litter, brush piles and stone walls are favorite hangouts for Ticks eagerly awaiting their next blood meal- you! Mosquitoes prefer a moist environment but are weak flyers, especially with a belly full of your blood. During the day they reside on the undersides of leaves, happy to breed in clogged gutters, bird baths or other sources of moisture. By eliminating these potential breeding sites (minimize leaves and brush piles, as well as containers with stagnant water) you can play your part in keeping your family safer.

The most effective means of Ticks and Mosquito Control is using a Blower Mister as it is highly targeted (to avoid flowers and drift) and provides better coverage and penetration of foliage than a granular product. We utilize an adulticide combined with a growth regulator to provide fast knockdown of biting adults and lasting control of larvae/nymphs that will not develop or breed. (Our Growth Regulator has "Reduced Risk" status with the Environmental Protection Agency.) For most effective Mosquito Control, treatments are applied approximately every 30-45 days from April-October. Maximum Results are achieved within 3 weeks following treatment. Your yard can be used within one hour following the low odor, low dose application.
