Tick Spray for Yards and Other Properties

Finding a tick on your property is enough to make anyone feel anxious and uncomfortable. Ticks are not just a small nuisance — they’re also well-known vectors of diseases that can be a major threat to your family. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ticks carry and transmit diseases like Lyme disease, Powassan virus, Borrelia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis and babesiosis.

Ticks can be detrimental to your own health and the wellness of your family members and pets. Read on to learn how tick control and prevention methods can reduce the population of these unwanted pests so you can enjoy your outdoor space with peace of mind.

What attracts ticks to your property?

Landscape

Ticks thrive in moist environments. Standing water near wooded areas, as well as leaf piles and firewood stacks, are some of the most common tick attractions; if you live in a wooded neighborhood, you’re more likely to find ticks in your landscaping.

Wildlife

Deer ticks attach to the type of wildlife that they consider their host — which is most commonly deer or mice — to be carried to their next location. If deer roam your property regularly, your likelihood of tick exposure increases.

Where do ticks live?

Ticks are found all over the U.S. but have a larger footprint in heavily wooded regions like the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast. The CDC outlined where ticks are most commonly found:

  • American dog tick: East of the Rocky Mountains and certain areas on the Pacific Coast.
  • Blacklegged tick, or deer tick: Eastern U.S.
  • Brown dog tick: Across the U.S.
  • Gulf Coast tick: Coastal areas of the U.S., mostly along the Atlantic coast and the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Lone star tick: Southeastern and Eastern U.S.
  • Rocky Mountain wood tick: Rocky Mountain states such as Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and Utah.

When should you treat your property for ticks?

Any evidence of a tick habitat should be treated immediately to protect yourself, your children and pets.

Not all ticks are obvious to find. In the springtime — between May and June — ticks are in the nymph stage of their life cycle, which is considered the most dangerous. This is when they are at their smallest but still able to latch on to humans. Their size makes them very threatening because they’re more difficult to see, but they’re still just as harmful as adult ticks.

Between late August and September, ticks are looking to mate and get their blood from a host. And while not as common during the winter months, there’s potential for them to be highly active at this time.

Treating your property during each stage of the tick life cycle is important. That’s why we have all-season treatments available to control the population of these disease-ridden pests in your landscape.

What are the best options for protecting against ticks?

At SavATree, safety is a key component of our core values, and we understand the importance of protecting your landscaping and family from ticks. We bring a blend of research, experience and integrity to deliver that result.

SavATree tick control treatments that target both the lawn perimeter areas and tick-carrying mice and deer provide the greatest protection by quickly reducing the number of active ticks on your property. Our tick habitat treatments and  organic tick repellent and landscape treatments are effective solutions because they target the tick population head-on and provide a solution that’s equally humane as it is efficient.

Organic Tick Repellent and Property Treatment

SavATree is pleased to offer our organic tick spray for yard. Our solutions use cedar oil as the active ingredient to eliminate ticks on contact and provide residual control that lasts between 30 and 60 days.

To decide if you make a good candidate for our organic tick spray, one of our arborists will:

  1. Come evaluate your property.
  2. Check for potential habitats or ground cover evidence of mice, deer and tick presence.
  3. Ask if you want to treat the specific habitat or the entire property, then provide a treatment option from there.

To perform the application on the entire property we start with the ecotone area that divides the yard and tree line. This particular area is known to be the preferred habitat of deer tick. After covering the impacted area, the arborist sprays the light, organic mist over the rest of your property. It’s as simple as that.
