Lawn Care Guide

Treating your Lawn for Fleas and Ticks

Flea & Tick Control

There are an estimated 1,600 species of fleas. Fleas are blood-sucking insects which cause great pain, discomfort, and they are carriers of disease. Ticks are parasites of warm-blooded animals including humans. Ticks can drain away the vitality and vigor of the animal they attack and they are known to spread and carry serious diseases. Fleas and ticks can be controlled with proper treatment.

If you have a heavy infestation of fleas and/or ticks, ridding your pets and property of these irritating insects is a little more complex than a treatment of your lawn. With heavy infestation, it is recommended that on the same day your lawn is treated initially, you should have your pets sprayed, dusted, or dipped, as well as, have your house treated indoors.

We offer an outdoor flea and tick control treatment. For best results, two treatments spaced two or four weeks apart are recommended.
