Ten Tips for Effective Tick Control this Spring:
1. Avoid the areas of your yard most likely to be hosting ticks. Ticks don’t fare well in sunny well-manicured areas of your landscape, but they survive nicely where there is shade cover and taller vegetation particularly if there is leaf clutter or other plant debris on the ground.
At PesTecs, your specific situation is more than just your address and payment method. That’s why before making any chemical treatment to your home or yard, we insist that PesTecs supervisor meet with you to discuss the context and review the recommended treatment plan and provide you with other available options.
PesTecs is very concerned with declining bee populations, and we have designed our workday around minimizing the negative effects of pesticides on bees.
The PesTecs workday for outdoor broadcast pesticide applications begins in the early evening and goes until the work is done. Our later work day is safer for bees at the time of treatment, and is more effective on mosquitoes which means we can achieve the same results with fewer applications.
Like a lot of things in life, pest management takes planning and effort. There are a lot of companies out there who just want your name, address, and payment method in order to provide you “service”, but you have to be careful and make sure they are not just selling pesticide treatments. PesTecs is not one of those companies. We believe that before using restricted use chemicals around your home and yard, it’s worth taking a bit of time to game-plan the situation.
PesTecs is as committed to solving your pest problem as we are committed to protecting you, your family, and the environment from pesticides.
