Organic Tick Spray

We now offer organic tick control to keep your family and pets safer than ever from ticks and Lyme disease. This is one of the safest way to protect your family and pets from the health hazards associated with ticks and the disease they carry.

We will spray 25′ into the perimeter of your yard and in all the landscaped beds. These are the places where ticks hide. Ticks are not generally found in the lawn, it is too hot the ticks will dehydrate and die in the lawn setting. Ticks are generally more active in the spring and fall when it’s cooler than in the heat of mid-summer. As a coincidence, you and your children likely spend more time in the yard in the summer when the kids are off from school and the weather is at its best. There is a bigger chance of exposure to ticks in the summer due to the warm weather. Being able to reduce your families exposure to lime disease in your own yard will give you piece of mind that you are doing all you can to prevent Lyme disease. The organic tick spray is a derivative of cedar oil and last and will control ticks for 30 to 60 days, so four sprays will give you season long protection.
