What is the difference between chemical pesticides and the organic pesticides SafeYard Organics uses?

The difference is that SafeYard Organics use an EPA-registered, low-impact sprays, that is safe to use around pets and children’s play areas. Synthetic chemical pesticides have a higher impact on non-targeted species. Another difference is the application of the pesticide. At SafeYard organics we take special care near sensitive areas and avoid injuring populations of beneficial insects.

How does mosquito abatement work?

We use an organic mosquito larvicide with minimal impact on non-target pests. This can be applied to yards or larger areas as ponds, swamps and fields. We use different methods of application depending on area. To control mosquitoes, application must be started early and continued.

Are deer the hosts of Lyme disease?

Although deer can be the end host for the tick, much like humans and pets, the White-footed mouse is the primary host for tick-borne diseases. The small size of the mouse makes it an ideal target for tiny, nymph stage, ticks. Ticks that feed on infected mice become infected, and capable of transmitting these diseases to people and pets with their next bite.

Yes, Safe Yard can safely spray near a pond.

How often should I spray for ticks?

With one female tick capable of laying between two to six thousand eggs, it is wise to have an application at least three times a year to control and reduce the many different types of disease carrying ticks. Depending on your area, repeated applications may be needed. Ticks have a complex life cycle involving several blood feasts which they need for their next stage of growth. Once they have fed, they will become dormant before hatching into their next form. Thus, repeated applications will catch newly hatched insects that could have been dormant during previous pesticide applications.

What does Tick and Mosquito abatement cost?

Most ticks and fleas live on the edge of your well-maintained lawn. A single spray application, based on the average lawn size, covers a 15 to 20foot-wide band effectively treating an acre plus perimeter. The service includes an appraisal of yard and tree health and consultation on any insect or disease problems found. I recommend spraying one to three times a year depending on the severity of the tick population. Ticks become active and start appearing as soon as the warm days of early spring. The best times are early in the spring or summer, and again in the fall. The cost is $175 per acre plus of perimeter and that would include around your house, under a deck, stone walls, sheds and paths.

For mosquito control I recommend treating your yard every four weeks with an organic mist. I target areas where female mosquitoes live during the daytime, which are often shady or damp locations. The cost of mosquito treatment it is based on square footage and ranges from $100 to $175 per application.

Our mission is to increase the safety of your outdoor environment by trying to eliminate disease carrying insects without harming insects that are beneficial to you and your environment.

Can I control the mouse population around my house?

Yes, there are several methods that can be used to reduce and control mice populations. Measures such as moving your bird feeder away from your house, and removing food sources and nesting areas, will reduce the rodent population of your property. Cleanup of brushy areas and leaf litter reduces hiding places for dormant ticks. SafeYard Organics can help in that process.
