01 Jul Protect your family and pets from fleas and ticks this summer!

FLEA-AND-TICKSummer’s here and has brought a few unwelcome guests along. It looks like nature is getting an early start on flea and tick season this year, but that’s no reason to stay indoors. With the past winter being so mild, we may be expecting an over load of these pests throughout the summertime. Eliminating flea and tick infestations requires treating your home and your lawn with the proper products that only a licensed agronomic specialist can apply safely. With Truesdale’s guidance, you can enjoy the beautiful landscape and weather without the worry of these pests.

Although fleas are not harmful to your lawn these miniscule creatures from the spider family can cause trouble everywhere else. Fleas cause health problems for humans and pets since they feed on the blood of mammals to survive. It is necessary that you take the precaution and rid your lawn and garden of fleas for the protection of your family and pets. Ticks are even more dangerous because they carry and transmit aggressive and life-threatening diseases such as Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever. They are not harmful to turf but are extremely harmful to any human or mammal they latch to as a food source.

It is very hard to identify fleas, as well as ticks, so it is necessary that you take the precautionary steps when dealing with these types of bugs. Spraying for tick and flea prevention or treatment will allow you and your family to be safe and healthy while enjoying the nature of your back yard. A systematic approach of several applications is required to keep your property clear of an infestation.

Only two or three applications will be needed to control these pests. Our agronomic specialist, Glenn Koleda, has expert advice and advanced knowledge of bug infestation.
