The warm weather has many of us enjoying time outside. But, we’re not the only ones loving this beautiful weather.

Warmer temperatures bring out insects and ticks are no exception. With the mild winter we just had, ticks remained active all year. As a result, experts are anticipating a higher-than-normal tick population this spring and summer.

Our 5-application program means that you will have reduced exposure to ticks in your yard from early spring into the fall. Using a combination of granular and liquid applications, our licensed techs will apply controls to your yard up to five times a season. Longer protection means a safer outdoor experience for you and your family. Contact us today for more information and pricing.
