Tick Control Application
Nothing puts a damper on backyard fun faster than ticks. These pests are not only a nuisance, but they’re a legitimate danger, too. Diseases that ticks carry are serious including West Nile, Dengue, Lyme, Zika and Malaria, to name just some. Ticks also carry Powassan virus which can be life threatening and causes more harm than Lyme Disease. Don’t let these pesky creatures ruin your summer events and potentially cause harm to you, family, friends and pets.

Organic Tick Control
You may want to take the organic route to controlling ticks. The Shannon Team professionally applies an organic tick spray that is equally as effective, giving you the best of both worlds.
What is in organic tick spray? If you’ve tried spraying the yard for ticks with some sort of store-brought, organic material in the past, then your experience might be that these products don’t work very well. A lot of natural products use herbs and essential oils, but lack potency and therefore, any major effectiveness. They may wear off within hours or were never strong enough to work in the first place. After many years of searching for ourselves, we are excited to have found a professional-grade organic product that works. The primary ingredient in our professional product is cedar oil.
For ticks, cedar oil is known to block the pest’s scent receptors and disrupt its body systems. On contact, it will also dry up the tick, completely disintegrating young ticks and fatally wounding adults. The natural aroma of cedar oil also is a major deterrent to other harmful insects. An added benefit is that if mosquitoes encounter cedar oil, it can kill them, their eggs, and their larvae. In addition to cedar oil, our organic tick control product also includes a proprietary blend of other organic ingredients for a mixture that is deadly to pests, but harmless to humans.
We treat lawns in Stratford, CT, Shelton, CT, Trumbull, CT, Monroe, CT, Fairfield, CT, Easton, CT, Milford, CT, Orange, CT, Woodbridge, CT, Westport, CT, Seymour, CT and Oxford, CT.
