Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • An Itchy Situation- Fleas & Ticks

    We know your pets a huge part of your life.  We also know when you own a dog or cat, fleas and ticks are a concern when the months start getting warmer. 

    As a result, Irish Green is recommending a more preventative approach if you have pets.  The labeling on the flea and tick product states that it should last 30 days.  We recommended doing the two flea and tick apps (10-14 days apart) NOW with your Rd 2.  Then doing one flea and tick app with each of your summer and early fall applications (Rd 3, Rd 4, Rd 5).  As long as you don’t see any live fleas and ticks between applications, this should work great.  However, if you do see live fleas and ticks, you will want to complete the series of two flea/tick apps 10-14 apart to kill both adult fleas and eggs.  

      

    At my house we also put the frontline on our dog pretty faithfully all summer.  Our “Bella” is mostly an inside dog; however, our neighbors also have dogs, we have a creek that runs behind our house, and we have a 5+ acre field beside our house that is only “brush-hogged” a couple of times per summer.  So we have a flea/tick, and every kind of bug, haven. GOOD NEWS: this preventative program worked very well on our property last summer.  Whereas, many who got fleas last summer had a very difficult time getting rid of them.

     

    COST = each application is the same price as your lawn application.  

    Basic Flea and Tick Plan :

    The first option is to have 2 Flea & Tick applications scheduled 10-14 days apart. We would schedule the first flea and tick application with your next lawn app. 

     

    Preventative Flea and Tick Program  (4 applications):

    We recommended doing the two flea and tick apps (10-14 days apart) NOW with your Rd 2.  Then doing one flea and tick app with each of your summer and early fall applications (Rd 3, Rd 4, Rd 5). As long as you don’t see any live fleas and ticks between applications, this should work great.  However, if you do see live fleas and ticks, you will want to complete the series of two flea/tick apps 10-14 apart to kill both adult fleas and eggs.  

    Flea and tick free lawn + Happy pets = Happy you!
