How will my family and pets be affected?
Tick Be Gone uses NON-TOXIC, kid-safe products. We prefer to use ORGANIC, natural products that are safe for our environment and leave no harmful residues. Our organic product will not harm beneficial insects such as earthworms, butterflies and especially bees.
Can Tick Be Gone completely eliminate all the Ticks and outdoor pests on my property?
We guarantee that our service will reduce ticks, and other outdoor pests by 85% to 98%. If you aren't fully satisfied, we will re-treat free of charge. Since ticks and the other outdoor pests are mobile, we cannot guarantee 100%
How often should Tick Be Gone Spray be applied?
Our trained professionals recommend application treatments every 4-6 weeks depending on weather conditions and customer schedules such as outdoor events etc.
Why do we use only backpack misters?
Ticks live in many places such as - leaf litter, overgrown shrubs, ornamental plantings, wood piles, paths, woodsy areas, perimeters, etc... Because of our years of experience, we know that the best way to target hidden ticks is by using backpack misters. The blowers can overturn leaves and uncover hiding places that a water gun and tick tubes will not help.
How long does it take for the spray to dry?
Your yard is safe to return to after 30 minutes of drying time in normal humidity. Warm, sunny days the spray will dry sooner. We recommend the 30 minutes to be consistent.
What towns do you service?
We cover most of Central and Eastern CT. Please contact us for more specific needs and we will do our best to work with all of our customers and ensure quality service.
Will the product have a smell after application?
The organic compounds we use will have a pleasant, natural cedar smell on the day of application. It will dissipate as it dries and blend right in with the outdoors. There will be no distinct smell to worry about. Some pet owners are concerned about their dogs not liking the smell. We have worked with many clients and have had great success with sensitive dogs and owners.
Why is the pesticide marker left on my property and what information does it explain?
