Tick Suppression Programs
Our State Licensed and trained technicians will focus on the areas of your property that see the most animal travel (because the animals are bringing the ticks onto your property), such as planting beds, stone walls, bushes, and low hanging trees.
We will spray the entire of the property’s borders (if applicable) to further protect your from these dangerous pests during each application! Our techs will spray 4 feet high and 10 feet in on all previously mentioned areas on each application. Multiple applications are required to kill and continuously repel these pests!
Option 1: Knock-Em out Spray Program (Chemical Applications)
- Provides an immediate kill and leaves residual protection.
- Once the spray has dried, you are free to enjoy your property again!
- Drying takes 20-30 minutes.
- Minimum of four applications is recommended annually.
*We recommend this program for best results.
Option 2: Green Alternative Program (Organic)
- In compliance with the USDA National Organic program.
- Provides a quick knockdown/kill, but a shorter residual protection.
- Safe for kids and pets and requires no dry time after application.
- Use of all natural botanical rosemary and peppermint oils
NOTE: Unique circumstances may require us to use backpack sprayers for hard to reach areas. We offer and optional protection as a lawn blanket spray for ticks (additional charge).
