Flea and tick problems are not limited to homes that have pets. Squirrels, raccoons, rodents and other wildlife traveling through trees and yards can drop fleas and ticks off anywhere. The key to flea and tick control is knowledge of their biology. Certain stages of their life cycle can resist the effects of insecticides.
The right product in the right place is necessary to have any chance of gaining control. It is important to assess your home and yard to identify sources and harborage areas as well as areas conducive to flea and tick infestations, and then design a comprehensive treatment program.
Then a trained specialist with a variety of products performs an initial treatment for fleas and ticks. Applications are tailored to each structure and yard based on infestation level, host availability and environmental conditions.
A customized maintenance program performed by a trained specialist allows preventative products to be applied in applications in specific areas outside the home to reduce flea and tick populations.
