Spring Applications: Springtime in Maine when nymph ticks are at their peak activity level. Their requirement for two blood meals to grow into adults puts people and pets at the highest risk of bite potential of the season.

Summer Applications: We are targeting adult ticks this time of year. Reducing the number of adult ticks is critical in reducing the overall breeding population going into the fall.

Fall Applications: The Fall spray is targeting adult ticks that are pregnant. Our spray dissolves tick eggs and kills on contact to help reduce the tick outbreak for the following spring.

Our tick and mosquito applications are done with a high pressured spray system that disturbs leaf litter, infiltrates crack and crevices in rock walls and wood piles, as well as hard to reach places under shrubs and tall grasses.

All contracts will have to be signed prior to spray applications per Maine State Law.

Ticks

Midcoast Maine has one of the highest rates of Lyme Disease in the country!

The vector of Lyme Disease is most commonly the white footed mouse. They, along with other rodents, carry the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. which is then transferred from the tick to humans and their pets.

 

According to the CDC there are 300,000 reported cases of Lyme Disease each year!

 

Mosquitos

Mosquitos are becoming more than just a nuisance pest for Maine residents. Although not all mosquito borne illnesses have been recorded in Maine, it is important to educate yourself on them to protect your family.

 

There are several mosquito borne illnesses such as: Dengue, Chikungunya, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Malaria, West Nile Virus, Yellow Fever, and Zika. Both West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis have been reported in Maine.

 

Mosquitoes are active at dusk and dawn, are most active at 80°F and do not function below 50°F.

 

June is generally considered the month for woodland mosquitoes except in wet years when the season may be prolonged.

As soon as the product dries(about 45 minutes) it doesn’t matter if it rains 10 minutes later, 1 hour later or a week later, the product has adhered to the plant surfaces. What does matter is each rainfall contributes to the product becoming less effective over time given the nature of the product is to not have long term negative effects.
I have a well, is that a problem? There are no concerns in regards to ground water contamination. The microbes and bacteria in the soil break down the product. Unlike synthetic chemicals it is not designed to last longer and provide systemic benefits.

Is the consultation free? Yes! We will come to your property and spend some time going over what we will do to reduce the tick and mosquito population as well as what you can do to help yourself.
