Tick Suppression Programs

Our trained applicators will begin with a Blanket Spray that will kill ticks present on the property! We will focus on lawn areas, planting beds, and walls where ticks are likely to be found. Also, we will spray up to 10 feet in and 3 feet high into the surrounding borders (if applicable) to further your insect protection. Then on each scheduled return visit we will spray all borders again to kill and repel them. Also, both services are proven to repel fleas, ants, spiders, mosquitoes and other biting insects.

Prevention is the best medicine!

One in four deer ticks carry LYME disease. There is an alarming increase of ticks in this area and only getting worse. Rising deer populations are a main cause. With these rising health issues involving ticks and Lyme disease, we are confident you’re in good hands. Unlike most companies, FHS is proud to provide the best coverage and protection using more expensive high pressure spraying equipment. 

UPDATE

This season we will move up the third visit from May/June to June/July based on a recommendation from the tick professor at the University of Connecticut.

Option One: Knock-em Out Spray Program
Our trained and licensed pesticide applicators can apply an insecticide spray. This service provides a rapid knockdown/kill and residual protection. A minimum of four (4) treatments annually is recommended through the season. Spring, late Spring, Fall, and late Fall.

  • Initial Full Blanket plus Border Spray
  • Border Spray Only (May–June)
  • Border Spray Only (September)

Option Two: The Organic Green Alternative Program
The Green alternative! we are proud to be USDA National Organic program compliant. Safe for children and pets! we use all natural botanical rosemary & peppermint oils. This service also provides a rapid knockdown/kill but with a shorter residual protection. Although safer, this program may require more services for equal protection with an additional charge.
