Tick Control

Tick Control Protects from Lyme Disease and Powassan Virus

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.

Why Is Tick Control Needed?

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.

What Are the Best Ways to Control Ticks in Your Yard?

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:

  1. Tick Risk Evaluation: Your Giroud Arborist will complete a risk assessment of your property to identify tick danger zones and develop a customized tick control program.
  2. Perimeter Clean-up: Ticks are shade lovers and can’t survive in the sun. The Giroud Team can eliminate shady tick habitats in two ways. First, cleaning up and/or clearing overgrown areas. Second, pruning tree branches and shrubs around the lawn edge to let in more sunlight.
  3. Deer Repellent: Deer are the primary carrier of ticks to your property. Our Deer Repellant service is safe, water-resistant and will deter deer from feeding on your valuable plants!
  4. 100% Organic Tick Control Treatments: Giroud’s specially licensed applicators will treat around the perimeter of your property and other high-risk areas. Our 100% organic treatment is made from essential oils including Peppermint and Cedar oils which are a natural tick repellent.
  5. Plant Selection: We will identify plants that are attracting deer to your yard and suggest alternative plants.

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!
