Unfortunately, ticks are a fact of life here in New England. Ticks are the second highest carrier of diseases (mosquitoes are the first) and nearly 90% of all Lyme disease cases are in New England. If you have a child, pet or simply like to spend time outdoors you have most likely had encounters with these disease-carrying arachnids. Ticks can generally be found in taller grass, shrubbery, and brushy areas. Protect your children and pets from Lyme disease carrying ticks with SeaScape’s Tick Control Program. Applications will be made starting in May and continuing through September, when exposure to ticks is highest. Treatment area includes entire lawn, mulch beds and 2-3′ along bordering woods/fields.
