Tick Control is a must to protect people and pets from these dangerous, blood sucking pests. Burrowing under the skin, Ticks can cause serious harm. Far worse than the bad rash and the pain of removing the tick, these nasty pests spread Lyme Disease, the deadly Powassan Virus and other serious illnesses.
Giroud’s Tick Control program targets ticks where they live. Deer Ticks like the shade and seek protection from the sun in ground level vegetation. Favorite hiding spots include high grasses, underbrush, shrubs and wooded areas. Here’s what we do to control this dangerous pest:
Our suburbs are a hot spot for Lyme Disease cases according to the Center for Disease Control. As tick populations explode, the spread of tick borne diseases has increased exponentially.
Now, there's a new threat, the Powassan Virus which is spread by infected ticks in as little as 15 minutes of the tick burrowing in the skin. By contrast, it takes 24 hours for a tick to infect a person or pet with Lyme Disease.
Check daily for ticks and remove as soon as possible. Don't try folklore remedies here! Follow the CDC Tick Removal Directions which include warnings against using things like vaseline and nail polish.
In addition to controlling ticks, Giroud’s treatment formula also provides excellent mosquito control. Ticks and Mosquitoes are attracted to many of the same dark, moist environments. Like ticks, mosquitoes are a dangerous pest and known for spreading many diseases including the Zika and West Nile Viruses. It’s good to know that you can strike out dangerous pests with powerful 100% Organic or Traditional treatments!

Two realities make Ash Trees killed by Emerald Ash Borers a safety hazard:
A dead Ash tree is not a simple tree removal. The brittle tree is so dry that it can break apart in unexpected ways and cause significant damage. The first step is to have the tree evaluated.
Your Giroud ISA Certified Arborist will evaluate the tree’s condition. He will
determine if a tree climber can safely work in the tree or if a crane and/or bucket truck is required. The longer the dead tree is left in the ground, the drier and more dangerous it becomes; making tree removal even more complicated and expensive.
