Mosquito and Tick Control
Ticks are a safety issue to your family and pets. Ticks are considered to be superior carriers of disease. They are small and stealthy and often go unnoticed until it is too late. While they do not jump or fly, their natural environment allows them the perfect access to their prey. They drop from trees or hide in the grass waiting for deer, dogs and humans to come close enough to latch onto. Ticks can go as long as 200 days without food or water and can live as long as 2 years. On lawns, 82% of deer ticks have been found within 9 feet of the lawns edge, especially areas adjacent to woods, stonewalls, or ornamental plantings.
One female flea can lay up to 18 eggs a day.
At that rate it would only take 20 fleas on a dog to produce 360 eggs per day and over 2000 in one week! The flea population is typically made up of 50% eggs, 30% larvae, 15% pupae and only 5% biting adults. Most fleas survive the winter in the larval or pupal stage and grow best during warm, moist winters and spring.
Best of all we use a natural CEDAR OIL product that we have found works as well as if not better than any chemical control on the market..........and it smells great too.
