Lyme disease is one of the fastest spreading infectious diseases in the United States and coastal Massachusetts is at the epicenter for Lyme disease outbreak. One of the key ways to reduce your chances of contracting a tick-borne illness is too minimize tick populations near your home.

Nature Guard Organic Lawn and Plant Care can provide effective organic tick control through a number of ways including perimeter treatments and tick tubes. All methods of application are safe, effective and meet strict organic standards.

Tick populations at your property can be monitored using the swipe/drag method. This data can then be used to come up with a treatment plan.

Sprays are typically applied in mid-May, mid-June and again in October. Tick tubes are monitored throughout the season because deer ticks will be active anytime the temperature is above 35 degrees. These management strategies are effective against dog tick populations as well.
