Grassy Meadows Tick Control Darien, CT (203)856-3823

Deer ticks transmit Lyme disease to humans and pets. Lyme Disease is the most commonly reported tick-borne disease in the United states. It was named in 1977 when a cluster of children in and around Lyme, CT developed severe arthritis symptoms.  Deer ticks are much smaller than dog ticks, often no bigger than the head of a pin, and are much more difficult to detect.  In 2002, CT had the highest reported rate of Lyme Disease in the country.  Children aged five to nine have the highest rates of Lyme Disease, but it can strike anyone of any age. Grassy Meadows has a timed schedule of spray applications for lawns, shrubs, and the perimeter of your property.  These applications will greatly reduce the population of Deer Ticks, which can be carriers of Lyme Disease, and Mosquitoes, which can be carriers of West Nile Virus.

Preventing Ticks 

Apply Pesticides Outdoors To Control Ticks

Pesticides for ticks, known as acaricides, can reduce the number of ticks in your yard. These benefits have been best studied for Ixodes Scapularis (the black leg tick).

1.  Consistent and timely pest control

2.  Easy to apply

3.  Relatively inexpensive

4.  Safe if applied according to label

Only small amounts of acaricide applied at the right time of the year are necessary. Application should focus on control of nymphal Ixodes Scapularis ticks, the stage most likely to transmit Lyme Disease, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis, by spraying in the early spring and summer. Adult blacklegged ticks can be targeted in the summer and fall.

Grassy Meadows Shrub Care Darien, CT (203)856-3823

Shrubs are surprisingly versatile, offering color, structure, privacy, shelter, and food for wildlife.  But how do you choose, and what works best for your yard? A photo gallery of options is a great start; you'll find dependable choices and helpful advice to guide you toward making a good decision. Springtime is a prime time for many shrubs to put on a colorful and welcome show; learn the best plants to add blooms to brighten those early-growing season days. Lilacs are another shrub that offer fragrance in spring and pretty foliage the rest of the growing season. Bloomerang lilac is a prolific re-bloomer, and one you might want to try for your flower beds.  Autumn is also a good season to let shrubs shine; discover varieties that add an explosion of deep color hues to your yard. Shrubs often have short bloom times, but many reward with fantastic foliage. Hydrangeas are prolific and suitable for nearly every region.
