Organic Mosquito and Tick Control
Giroud’s offers a 100% Organic Mosquito and Tick Control as well. Our special formula utilizes essential oils including peppermint and cedar oils which are natural repellents. These treatments are safe for children, pets, and pollinators like bees and butterflies. It’s an eco-friendly option to deter these biting, disease-carrying insects from your property so you can enjoy time outdoors.

Eco-Friendly Tick Tubes
If you prefer no-spray options for mosquito and tick control, or if you want to supplement your spray program, tick tubes are a wonderful option. We use Damminix Tick Tubes, which are small cardboard tubes filled with cotton balls that are treated with a product called Permethrin. Mice that are living on your property pull the cotton balls out of the tubes and use them to build their nests. The Permethrin rubs off on the mice, and the ticks are killed when they latch on and feed off of the mice.
Permethrin is safe for mice and any other animals, such as dogs and cats. In fact, this process is much like the flea medication you might put behind the ears of your dog or cat. Plus, Damminix Tick Tubes are EPA approved and biodegradable, so they are environmentally friendly!
