Flea, Tick and Mosquito Suppression: Fleas and ticks are now present, and mosquitos are here with the warmer weather.
Enjoy your time outdoors with monthly visits to treat your property.
Applications are done by fogging the perimeter of the property as well as spraying nesting areas. Plant material around the house (patio, deck, pool, swing set wood lines if applicable) will also be treated.
Tick suppression has begun.
Adults are present now and are active any day when temperatures are above freezing.
Eggs hatch in the Spring. Larvae are present during late summer and nymphs during late spring and through the summer.
The ticks “hang out” on the ends of branches and tall grass leaves.
Any animal or human brushing up against the plant runs the risk of picking up a tick hitchhiker.
Try sitting on your patio, only to be swarmed by hungry mosquitoes. Adult female mosquitoes lay eggs in anything holding water. They’ll survive drying out up to eight (8) months.
Mosquitoes only need a small amount of water to lay eggs.
Gutters, fountains, tires, barrels, and any other container storing water make a great “nursery.”
After hatching, larvae live in the water. This happens when water (from rain or a sprinkler) covers the eggs. Larvae can be seen in the water.
They are very active and are often called “wigglers.” They become pupae, which live in the water.
An adult mosquito emerges from the pupae and flies away. The entire egg to adult cycle takes 7-10 days!
Let us treat your property so you won’t be chased back indoors.
