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.
Our suburbs are a hot spot for Lyme Disease cases according to the Center for Disease Control. Unfortunately, the problem is getting worse as more cases are reported each year. 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.
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:
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 a powerful 100% organic treatment!
