Safer Products and Programs
Your outdoor concerns are our priority. We can effectively treat your property for ticks and mosquitos in the most organic way. We use botanical essential oils, biologicals, and true natural organic sprays in your management program and only a true pyrethrum product derived from the Chrysanthemum flower. Our trucks are set up to mix and drench products along wooded borders and your knowledgeable technician will saturate the problematic areas in your yard and along wooded borders for optimum management.
We do not fog chemical pyrethroids products in the air and around your home with backpack mist blowers.
The Harrington's Way
- Pyrethrum is the dried, powdered flower heads of certain chrysanthemum species.
Other Synthetic Products… WE DO NOT USE IT ON YOUR PROPERTY.
- Pyrethrins are the active ingredients found in the dried flower heads. Pyrethrins degrade approximately 24 hours after spraying.
- Piperonyl butoxide (PBO) is an additive that increases the effectiveness of pyrethrins. It has recently been discovered that PBO is an active ingredient itself, and as such, it is not yet widely accepted by organic growers.
- Pyrethroids are synthetic, man-made chemicals based on the pyrethrins found in the dried flower heads of certain chrysanthemum species. Pyrethroids have a long residual period after spraying and are thus more lethal to a wider range of insects than pyrethrins. Pyrethroids are not considered organic.
- Permethrin is a common synthetic pyrethroid that also contains chlorine. This has a very long residual life, so avoid using it on food crops.
Management techniques include life cycle targeting, growing degree day calculations, choosing the correct products, and applying them in the most opportune way for maximum control.
Tick & Mosquito Management
Small, 1-2 mm in size, ticks and mosquitoes are some of nature’s most efficient disease vectors. While ticks are responsible for a variety of illnesses and diseases including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tularemia; mosquitoes play a major role in viral hemorrhagic fevers like West Nile virus. The threat is ever-present, but there are measures that can be taken to decrease risk and educate clients on risk factors in their local area. Hire our family-owned business to manage all your tick & mosquito management needs.
The CDC now reports 16 different tick-borne pathogens affecting humans, many of which have been discovered in the last few years. Our natural botanical and biological insecticides manage all stages of deer ticks and mosquitoes. Areas to be treated can include lawns and woodland borders and applications are made year-round. Multiple applications are always recommended (3-8 applications).
