Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • Flea And Tick Treatments

     

    Since day one, taking care of the lawn, while also caring for our pets at the same time, has always been a top priority at Irish Green Lawn care. I often tease my husband and his family that they all love pets so much that you have to watch them closely as one can blink and they have their own zoos. So even in the “old days” when we used a traditional synthetic chemical program, we would have never used any products that we would be concerned about harming our pets. 

    Personally, I live in the most horrible breeding ground for fleas and ticks. We have a 10-acre field on one side of our property that is only brush hogged once or twice a year (grass is normally 5-6 foot high). We have a tiny creek that runs behind our house. (standing water puts it mildly). Then also neighborhoods all around, full of pets and more trees than a lot of city lots.

     

     

    Common Questions about Flea and Tick Treatments:

    When do we apply the treatment?

    We will apply the first series of two apps at the same time as Round 2- so just blink a couple of times and it will be flea/tick season.

    Do I need to reschedule the treatment every year?

    This is a recurring treatment. It will be automatically rescheduled every year until you let us know otherwise.

    How long does the treatment last?

    The label on the flea and tick product states that it should last 30 days. We recommend doing the two flea and tick apps 10-14 days apart. (One round to kill the adult bugs and the second round to kill any eggs that might have hatched.)

  • 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!
