Tick Control Programs

The TurfMasters Tick Control Program


We use 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.

Combined with personal protection, landscape management and the TurfMasters Tick Control Program, you will greatly reduce any threat from tick borne disease being contracted from your property.

Please keep in mind no control program can guarantee 100% control of ticks or that a person or pet will never get Lyme Disease because the tick and it's hosts are mobile and may move into an already treated area.

  • Late Spring

    Our pyrethroid insect control is sprayed once during this season to control nymphs which is the growth stage of ticks most associated with the transmission of Lyme Disease.

  • Summer

    Our pyrethroid insect control is sprayed again during this season to control emerging adult ticks and any remaining nymphs that may have moved into the area.

  • Early Fall

    Our pyrethroid insect control is sprayed one last time during this season to control any remaining adult ticks.
