Ticks are common pests throughout New York’s Capital Region. Tick species prevalent in the Northeast include deer ticks, wood ticks, and American dog ticks. Unfortunately their small size makes them difficult to detect until it is too late. Ticks are not only a nuisance while you are enjoying outdoor activities, they can pose a serious health risk to your family and pets. Serious diseases and illnesses such as Lyme Disease or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be transmitted with just one bite from an infected tick. The good news is you don’t have to live with the fear of ticks in your yard and on your property. With the help of professionals you can get the tick prevention you need to enjoy your yard with peace of mind again. Here is how our tick control program works:
- A Thorough Inspection
A pest control technician will thoroughly inspect your property to identity where ticks may be hiding. This will include examining wooded areas, along property boundaries, areas with tall vegetation, and where lawns transition to other foliage types. The technician will talk you through your biggest problem areas and give advice as needed for making your property less inviting to ticks.
- All Natural Tick Treatment
Our pest control team will use all natural products like cedar oil to treat your property for ticks. In addition to being highly effective against ticks, cedar oil is toxic to fleas, mosquitoes, and other insects, but is nontoxic to humans. This means you don’t have to worry about your family and pets being effected by any harsh chemicals sprayed in your yard. The oil only needs to come into contact with the pests to be effective. Based on your home inspection, the technician will spray the infected areas with our all natural tick repellent solution.
- Reapplication as Needed
Our tick treatments are proven to be effective. However, homeowners experience the best results when the treatment is applied regularly during the peak periods of tick activity (April through September). How often the treatments need to be applied will depend upon your unique situation and how severe the infestations are. If you live in a heavily wooded area or have areas with tall vegetation you may need to treat your yard for ticks on a monthly basis during peak season. Other homeowners may only need treatments every other month. Our tick control team will help you to decide how often you should treat your property.
