Available Packages-Keep your loved ones bite free-Call today for a free quote!

Our Barrier Spray Programs are what keeps the pesky bugs away! We offer several packages for season long protection.Dread Kids Sprayer

Gold Package: This package provides Mosquito and Tick Control for 6 months, with 21 day applications applied from spring to fall. This is our most popular plan and provides excellent coverage for most homes.

Platinum Package: Our Platinum Plan provides Mosquito and Tick control treatments for the same 6 months as our Gold Plan, but treatments are performed every 14 days instead of 21 days.  This treatment plan is ideal for properties characterized by mature foundation plants, heavy ground cover, and extensive wooded areas, often having much higher mosquito populations. Also, if you have children who frequently play outdoors, a higher level of protection may make sense.

Summer Packages:  Our Summer Packages runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  They’re a great option for those who only are up in the area during the summer.  You can choose the Summer Gold Package or the Summer Platinum Package depending on the frequency you’d like to be treated during that time.

PLUS! ProgramsThis year we’re offering extra protection for fleas & gnats.  If you have fleas & gnats, sign up for our Gold PLUS! or our Platinum PLUS! to ensure protection for your pets and family from these pesky bugs.  We have added an extra process with additional materials and treated areas around your home.  This program requires a minimum of three (3) weeks to become fully effective, and should be applied for three treatments to keep these pests away. For best results, it is also highly encouraged that pets are treated for fleas by your local caregiver during the same treatment time.

All Natural:  This option is made up of Peppermint and Rosemary.  With the this option your property is treated every 2 weeks and has a 70% mosquito repel rate.

Intensive Tick Control Package:  Tick tubes are placed on your property in paths of small critters that carry the nymphs (baby ticks).  The cotton that is placed in the tubes is taken back to the critter’s nest. The critters are not harmed but this smaller stage of ticks is eliminated.  This is a long term process to eliminate the next generation of ticks.

Other Services available:  Feel free to ask about other available services.  We have control for spiders, stink bugs and other crawling pests, ants, dock treatments, and fly bait.

Tick-Borne Disease

TICK-BORNE DISEASE

A Hidden Danger

Lyme Disease

Named after the town in Connecticut in which it was first found, Lyme disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in the United States, being diagnosed in all states except Hawaii. There are nearly 30,000 cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control each year. If caught early, Lyme disease responds well to a variety of antibiotics. Unfortunately, Lyme is not the easiest disease to diagnose. The telltale bull’s eye rash is only one of the many symptoms of Lyme, which also includes fever, fatigue and joint pain.

Ehrlichiosis

Although it does affect humans, ehrlichiosis is most commonly found in deer and dogs. The bacteria kills white blood cells causing headaches, fatigue and aches. Luckily, ehrlichiosis is treated with a series of antibiotics.

Quick Facts About Ticks

Quick Facts About Ticks

  • Although commonly referred to as insects, ticks are technically arachnids.
  • Ticks are classified as parasites since they all feed on the blood of host animals.
  • Tick species number in the hundreds, but only a handful typically transmits disease to humans.
  • The ticks of greatest concern in the US are the blackegged tick (also known as the deer tick in the eastern US), the Lone Star tick, and the dog tick.
  • Ticks do not jump or fly. Typically, they transfer to hosts by waiting on tall grass and crawling aboard when a mammal happens by.
  • Ticks can be active when the ground temperature is above 45 degrees Farenheit.
  • Ticks that endanger humans also choose deer hosts and are usually prevalent wherever deer are found.
  • Tick bites often go undetected because they do not hurt or itch.
  • Ticks that enter your home can live there for extended periods.
  • There are two families of ticks: hard ticks (Ixodidae) and soft ticks (Argasidae).
  • Hard ticks have three distinct life stages: larva, nymph and adult.
  • Soft ticks may go through a number of nymph stages before reaching adult status.
  • Tick larvae are not believed to carry pathogens. The pathogens are received from the host when the larvae take their first blood meal. They will not feed again until nymph stage.
  • The nymph stage is believed to be most responsible for infecting humans as nymphs are small and can more easily go undetected on the skin.
