Spring Tick Control

You may have heard us say that effective deer tick control starts early in the Spring, before ticks can multiply and infest your property….  This past Sunday after a nice day playing lawn bocci with extended family, we’re sitting at the dinner table and they point out a small nymph deer tick crawling up my husband’s shirt.  Later 2 more are found on other family members.  My brother-in-law keeps his property meticulously maintained.  So now I’m seeing first hand that even the most perfectly maintained yards are susceptible to deer ticks.

Deer-tick-stages_facebookDeer ticks are known carriers of Lyme disease, the number one tick-borne illness in the US. Each year, more than 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported to the CDC. They survive and flourish with access to food sources, which include you and your pets.

Organic Plant Care LLC offers spring tick control solutions to protect your family, reducing the risk of bites while maintaining the healthiest possible landscape. We use products that are completely organic and safe for children and pets, minimizing the impact on beneficial insect populations. We target natural borders, 15-20 feet into woodland transition areas, rock walls, woodpiles, shrub beds and ground covers in the vicinity of the house.

Our applications are specifically timed to suppress ticks and mosquitoes at each of their peak growth stages. Our licensed, trained technicians know where they are lurking and when they are most vulnerable. This allows us to avoid using synthetic, toxic chemicals with dangerous health and environmental impacts.

Our treatment should be started as early in the spring as possible to get the best possible results.  Contact us today to schedule an appointment and start protecting you and your pets.
