Tick Sprays & Tick Protection
We are proud to offer two types of tick protection, an Organic Tick Spray and a Traditional Tick Spray. Tick & Turf recommends a 3 spray program for a tick free property.
Organic Tick Spray: This is a custom blend of woody oils and a sticker that is sprayed on all lawn areas, flower beds, and property borders.
Traditional Tick Spray: You will experience immediate results, but treatments only take minutes to dry. Children and Pets can play as soon as it dries. This also is sprayed on all lawn areas, flower beds and property borders.
SEASONAL TICK SPRAY PROGRAMS
Spring Spray: (Highest Bite Risk) In the spring the applicator is targeting the nymph ticks that require two blood meals to grow into adult ticks. They can get there blood from adults, kids, pets, chipmunks,deer, and other animals.
Summer Spray: In the summer the applicator is targeting the adult tick. These ticks have re-entered or re-introduced to your property most commonly by deer, mice, chipmunks and other animals.
Fall Spray: In the fall the applicator is targeting pregnant ticks and other adult tick. Reducing the tick population in fall prevents a high spring outbreak when bite risk is at its highest.
Organic or Traditional Tick Control is very affordable. Your property is sprayed on a single, triple (recommended) or for the out of control tick population we offer an extra spray or two.
