What You Need to Know About Tick Repellent
One of the best investments you can make for your property’s outdoor spaces is adding a tick control program. Mosquito Authority offers licensed tick repellent services to protect your family and pets from these parasitic arachnids.
What Repels Ticks?
Ticks are a part of the outdoors. They can transmit numerous diseases and illnesses, ranging from mild to life-threatening. To repel ticks, you’ll need to take some precautions before spending time outdoors.
For your clothing and gear, you’ll want to treat these items with permethrin, an insecticide. Skin can be treated with a variety of insect repellents, as there are now many products available to suit your needs.
Ticks can be stubborn to remove on your own. Their habitats include grassy, brushy, and wooded areas when they’re not feeding on hosts. It can be tempting to take matters into your own hands, but our team of professionals are experts at locating tick habitats and administering high-grade products.
Mosquito Authority offers several tick repelling services to achieve more peace of mind. We employ our nearly two decades of experience in combination with scientifically backed research to develop a custom plan based on your unique property, to wipe out ticks on the spot and keep them away for longer.
Natural Tick Control Options
If you’re looking for natural or organic tick repellent, Mosquito Authority can help! We feature effective, all-natural methods that use fewer chemicals, have less of an environmental impact, and can even help improve the look of your yard.
For yards, our tick tubes are a biodegradable option that feature a minimal environmental impact. They’re easy to install and provide relief from tick infestations quickly. This strategic control service relies on the relationship between ticks and mice. Tick tubes are filled with treated cotton that mice use as bedding material. When mice use this cotton in their homes, it wipes out ticks on the spot.
For your skin and clothing, other non-toxic, natural ways to repel ticks include cedar oil, eucalyptus oil, neem oil, apple cider vinegar, and garlic. When used in conjunction, you’ll decrease your risk of receiving a tick bite.
How to Get Rid of Ticks on Large Properties
If you have a large property and are looking for lawn pest control service, Mosquito Authority offers best- in-class tick barrier control services. Our tick barrier control services disrupt the tick life cycle, which helps reduce habitats on a long-term basis.
