Tick Control Maine

As a carrier of Lyme Disease ticks pose a very serious health risk.  In recent years we have seen an explosion in tick populations and with that an increase in Lyme Disease cases caused by Deer Ticks. All ticks are carried into your yard on hosts such as deer and mice. Even fenced in yards are not safe with mice carrying ticks. With Green Pest Defense’s perimeter treatment we make sure that any ticks coming into your yard soon become dead ticks. We recommend monthly treatments to keep the population under control.

 

The best protection against ticks is prevention. Stop the population with a Targeted Yard Defense treatment and take precaution when going outdoors. Ticks tend to linger in tall grasses waiting for a passerby so keeping your yard cut will help. If you are going into the woods or deeper grass wear light clothing so you can see any ticks who catch a ride.
