Flea, Tick, & Biting Insect Control
Protect your lawn, family, and pets all summer long from dangerous biting insects!
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 2,000 in one week! The flea population typically consists 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.
Ticks are a safety issue for 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 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 are found within 9 feet of the lawn’s edge, especially areas adjacent to woods, stonewalls, or ornamental plantings.
Our Flea & Tick Program provides 5 Applications during the summer months to help control blood feeding and parasitic fleas, ticks, and deer ticks from taking over your lawn! It is also effective for control of mosquitoes, ants, gnats, aphids, centipedes, chinch bugs, earwigs, millipedes, mites, spiders, whiteflies, and many other nuisance and non-beneficial insects. The great thing is that it WILL NOT harm beneficial insects such as bees, butterflies, and even earthworms. (While this is a taxable item in Nebraska, we have included it in our pricing.)
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. Cedar Oil is OMRI Certified Organic and EPA exempt…and it smells great, too.
