Ticks: A Real Problem for New England

American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks, Black-legged (deer) ticks, and Lone Star ticks are the four most common tick species found in New England. Infestations have been on the rise here over the past few years, which is a concern for pest professionals and homeowners alike. Ticks not only cause discomfort and irritation, they are carriers of diseases such as Lyme disease and HGE (Human Granulocytic Erlichiosus.) Ticks cannot hop or fly and must latch on to their targets from elevated surfaces such as tall grass and overgrown vegetation, making areas on the exterior of your home susceptible to infestation.

 The Modern Solution 

Modern Pest’s Homecare Vector Program is designed to treat tick hot spots on your home’s exterior. Vector also covers mosquitos and fleas. During your initial service, your Modern Pest Professional will determine the species of tick or ticks present and identify areas with tick activity, documenting the severity of the infestation. Modern’s Vector Program is centered on reducing the number of ticks present in and around your yard and removing the conditions that support tick activity. Our program consists of 5 monthly treatments between May and September, and has proven to effectively reduce flea, tick, and mosquito populations. If you are not completely satisfied with your Homecare Vector service, Modern will promptly return to your home and diligently work until the problem is solved to your satisfaction.
