Read ahead for some frequently asked questions with respect to our new and improved mosquito and tick control. You asked, we listened! We are now able to control BOTH of these pesky bugs ensuring a safe and enjoyable summer outdoors.

Q: How do you apply the products?

A: Our specially trained technicians use a fogging backpack to hit target zones throughout your property such as wood piles, bushes, shrubs, and shaded areas. They will avoid areas such as flowering plants, fruit trees and vegetables gardens to keep our pollinators safe.

Q: What products do you use in this application?

A: We use a product called Dragnet, which is approved for use by Health Canada to control Mosquitos and ticks. It is a synthetic form of the natural flower called the chrysanthemums

Q: Is it safe?

A: Absolutely. We practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and our technicians are specially trained by a licensed exterminator to ensure the product is applied safely and effectively.

Q: How does the tick control work?

A: The nests of mice and rodents are breeding areas for ticks. While the mice themselves are a member of our ecosystem we are trying to eliminate them from being carriers of the pesky bug. Our Tick tubes are placed strategically throughout your property and effectively cause a barrier against an infestation.

Q: How many times do you come?

A: Our program is designed for us to come every 21 – 25 days to allow for protection all summer long

Q: Is there anything I can do to help reduce these bugs?

A: Yes! As in our lawn care programs things always work better with combined efforts. If you keep your lawn cut at 2.5” and reduce any standing water throughout your property you will reduce the natural breeding spots for these bugs to breed.

For more questions give our office a call and we’d be happy to help in any way we can so you can enjoy your backyard this summer!
