Tick Treatment

All of the barrier spray chemicals we use are synthetic forms of pyrethrin’s called pyrethroids. Pyrethrin’s are insecticides that are derived from a naturally occurring compound called pyrethrum found in the chrysanthemum flower. Pyrethroids are used in numerous commercial products that consumers use to control insects such as household pest insecticides, pet shampoos and sprays, and even lice shampoos applied directly to the scalp. We strategically spray to avoid any interference with visible pollinators and plants within the landscape of your yard.

Did you know?

Like mosquitoes, ticks also carry and transmit dangerous diseases.  Ticks can feed off their hosts blood for hours, days, or even weeks.  They often go undetected because they do not hurt or itch.  The most commonly known tick-borne disease is Lyme disease which unfortunately isn’t easy to diagnose.  Unfortunately, the list of tick-borne diseases does not limit itself to only Lyme diseases.
