If you enjoy spending time outdoors, you know that certain pests not only pose a nuisance, but a health concern as well. Pests such as ticks and mosquitoes carry diseases such as West Nile Virus, Lyme Disease, and Zika Virus, to name a few. Even when taking the best precautionary steps to protect yourself from ticks and mosquitoes, it is still common to come in dangerous contact with these pests.
Our Tick & Mosquito Control Program will substantially reduce the population of these pests on your property. Ticks and Mosquitoes spend a lot of time resting on areas we can treat to not only control them upon contact, but also reduce future problems. The materials we apply will continue to control these pests for 4-6 weeks after treatment.
This program automatically continues unless we are notified in advance.
Our area is notorious for a high level of tick activity and Lyme Disease cases. Out of 3194 counties in the United States that had confirmed reports of Lyme Disease, in the top 100 counties, you will find Chester County, York County, Berks County, Dauphin County, Lebanon County, and Lancaster County. Lyme Disease cases have taken an unfortunate upturn in the past decade, in spite of public awareness. These cases most often occur in the months from May through September.
Mosquitoes carry many diseases, including West Nile virus. Central PA is a notorious area for mosquito activity and many cases of West Nile virus are reported. One in five people infected with West Nile virus will develop symptoms such as: headache, body aches, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue that can last for several weeks. It’s rare that severe cases can develop into serious neurological illnesses, but mosquitoes are still a major nuisance for people who love to spend time outdoors during the warmer months.
The mosquito and tick treatment is an essential oil-based spray that is 100% chemical-free.
This treatment is chemical-free, making it a great option for use around children, pets, and other wildlife.
No. Our pest control techs will not spray your consumable garden (vegetables, herbs, etc.). Areas of focus tend to be harborage areas (places mosquitoes hide). This includes shrubs, the perimeter of your home, and under trees.
The plant oils in the spray cause immediate insect paralysis and fast-kill many insects. The oils also repel insects that come within its vicinity, providing longer-term protection.
