Nothing puts a damper on backyard fun faster than ticks. These
pests are not only a nuisance, but they’re a legitimate danger,
too. Diseases that ticks carry are serious including West Nile,
Dengue, Lyme, Zika and Malaria, to name just some. Ticks also
carry Powassan virus which can be life threatening and causes
more harm than Lyme Disease. Don’t let these pesky creatures
ruin your summer events and potentially cause harm to you,
family, friends and pets.
Take back your yard
You deserve to feel as though your property is your safe haven.
Ticks rob you of that feeling, but you don’t have to let them. By
taking action, you can prevent these pests from causing you
and your family anymore distress. Rather than spending any
more time worrying, take back control of your yard and get
back to enjoying time outside. You deserve to have some peace
of mind and comfort.
According to the CDC, it’s important to treat yards to prevent
tick-borne illnesses regularly. In Connecticut, ticks are
everywhere. With environmental conditions, proximity to
woods and open fields and wildlife near your home, most yards
have ticks crawling around and due to the unusually mild
winter, tick activity will be in full swing come Spring. The good
news is that professional treatment programs will help rid your
lawn of ticks just in time for your family to enjoy playing in your

Organic Tick Control
You may want to take the organic route to controlling ticks. The
Shannon Team professionally applies an organic tick spray that
is equally as effective, giving you the best of both worlds.
What is in organic tick spray? If you’ve tried spraying the yard
for ticks with some sort of store-brought, organic material in
the past, then your experience might be that these products
don’t work very well. A lot of natural products use herbs and
essential oils, but lack potency and therefore, any major
effectiveness. They may wear off within hours or were never
strong enough to work in the first place. After many years of
searching for ourselves, we are excited to have found a
professional-grade organic product that works. The primary
ingredient in our professional product is cedar oil.
For ticks, cedar oil is known to block the pest’s scent receptors
and disrupt its body systems. On contact, it will also dry up the
tick, completely disintegrating young ticks and fatally wounding
adults. The natural aroma of cedar oil also is a major deterrent
to other harmful insects. An added benefit is that if mosquitoes
encounter cedar oil, it can kill them, their eggs, and their
larvae. In addition to cedar oil, our organic tick control product
also includes a proprietary blend of other organic ingredients
for a mixture that is deadly to pests, but harmless to humans.
