We offer both Traditional and All-Natural methods for easy tick control.
Traditional – In our traditional formulation we use a permethrin-based insecticide. Permethrin is a commonly used insecticide with low toxicity for people and animals that provides excellent tick control. Permethrin is an EPA registered pesticide that is labeled for indoor use as well as on livestock. People and pets can touch treated surfaces once the surfaces have dried. The residual effect of this spray treatment is 4-6 weeks.
All-Natural – The all-natural formula we use for tick control is a blend of 100% organic ingredients including Cedar Oil, Peppermint Oil, and two other chemical compounds that are registered for use in the food industry. It will not harm beneficial insects such as bees, butterflies, and earthworms. The residual effect of this treatment is 3-4 weeks.
We would be happy to show you the labels from either one of our tick control products for you to verify the contents.
We apply both of these products using a commercial high-pressure spray rig. This enables us to reach further back on your property into the wooded areas and create a larger buffer zone that ticks will not cross.
Timing is crucial for effective tick control. We time our spray applications specifically to when ticks are most active on your property, according to typical Connecticut weather.
April/May – This is when the nymph stage of a tick’s life cycle takes place. Nymphs are very small, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Therefore, they can attach and go easily unnoticed. We target two sprays for nymphs: one in April and one at the end of May.
July – This spray will target adult ticks that have reentered your property attached to wildlife that is moving through. Deer, mice, squirrels, and birds are all convenient transportation for ticks.
Mid-September/October - This is the time when we will target female ticks that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. This spray application will greatly reduce tick the tick population on your property the following spring. Reducing the total tick population on your property is the key to controlling ticks and tick-borne illness.
Considering the value of being able to enjoy your landscape without worry, tick control is very economical. Pricing is dependent on the number of applications and the size of your landscape to be treated. We would be happy to discuss your different options for controlling ticks on your Western Connecticut property and give you a no obligation, free estimate.
