Ticks Insecticide

Ixodida Insecticide

Description of Ticks (Ixodida):
Ticks are a bloodsucking insect that can be found in the yard. A good way to prevent them in the turf is to keep minimal thatch and leaf litter at the soil level--a place where the ticks like to live. Additionally, mowing frequently is a good method of prevention for ticks.

Instructions:
Including ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Make application to the entire area where contact with ticks may occur. Do not make spot treatments. When applying to areas with heavy leaf litter or dense ground cover use higher spray volumes. To attain and/or sustain control in times of high pest pressure, retreatments may be necessary; retreat only if signs of continued or renewed tick activity are present. Repeat treatments must not be made more often than once per 7 days. Deer ticks (ixodes sp.) have a four-stage life cycle spanning 2 years. Treat in late fall and/or early spring to both larval and nymphal stages present in leaf litter and the soil, and adults living in the grass and low-lying vegetation above ground. American dog ticks invade suburban settings in areas where residences and dwellings are constructed on former fields or wooded areas. These pests normally gather by paths or roadways where they are likely to find a host. To control tick larvae, nymphs and adults, treatments should take place, as needed, from mid spring to early fall.
