Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses have been on the rise in the United States, especially in Connecticut. The key to protecting you and your family from ticks in the Trumbull area is professional tick control. Mosquitos and ticks have quite an awful reputation. They have been called the biggest killers on the planet and the most deadly animals in the world. With just one bite they can cause great havoc by spreading devastating illnesses like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya and even Heartworm in pets. Ticks can easily travel across outdoor landscapes and latch onto pets that enter our homes and then land on a human host, spreading Lyme disease, Erlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other tick-borne illnesses.
At TurfMasters, we utilize a special application of pyrethroid insect control that is sprayed at an extremely low rate in tick habitats (mostly on the perimeter of your property where ticks are most likely to enter your landscaped areas). This spray is environmentally friendly and usually dries within an hour. However, re-entry is not recommended for 24 hours to ensure maximum effectiveness and limit exposure.
The TurfMasters Tick Control Program targets both the nymph and adult stages of the deer tick for maximum control. This spray is applied 3 times during the growing season to control nymphs (late spring) which is the growth stage most associated with the transmission of Lyme Disease; summer to control emerging adults and any remaining nymphs; and then again in the fall to control adult ticks.
