Tick Control Program Details

The conventional tick-only control program consists of 3 treatments yearly, based on the tick life cycle : Spring, Summer, and Fall. Prices start at $80 per treatment and go up based on the linear feet being treated. For regular programs we use Talstar. For organic programs we use Tick Free organic (Cedar Oil – based), and recommend monthly treatments from May-September.

Along with ongoing tick control programs, Fowler & Sons also offers one-time treatments for events such as weddings, parties, etc. These are scheduled no more than 48 hours in advance of the event, the closer the better.

Tip: You can begin tick control treatments during any season, even in the Fall, since ticks overwinter as adults and are active above freezing.
