Alternative EarthCare Shares 3 Services East End Residents Should Look For in Their Organic Tick Control Provider


LONG ISLAND, N.Y., September 26, 2017 Alternative EarthCare has been providing quality residential and commercial services across Long Island, New York since 1996. Specializing in mosquito, flea, and east end tick control service, traditional lawn services (including aeration and seeding), irrigation system services, tree removal and pruning, and Christmas and holiday light installation, the team of professionals successfully caters to your needs in the least toxic, most organic way possible.

Organic tick control is a highly effective means of managing dangerous tick populations on your property. Ticks spread a number of dangerous and even potentially fatal diseases such as Lyme Disease, Babesiosis, and the Powassan virus. Fortunately, consistent tick control treatments when administered by professionals can help to greatly diminish current tick populations while also helping to manage tick populations in the year to come. However, to ensure the best possible professional services, it’s important to ask a few questions to be sure that they provide appropriate solutions for your property. Alternative EarthCare shares three services east end residents should look for in their organic tick control provider.

  1. Multiple treatment options Utilize a professional service that offers both organic spray treatments as well as tick-tubes. Organic sprays ensure full-coverage of shrubs, lawns, trees, ground cover, property borders, and all areas where ticks tend to congregate and breed. Permethrin treated tick tubes manage populations on one of the tick’s most common hosts, rodents. Rodents bring permethrin treated cotton balls from inside the tubes, back to their nests where tick populations are killed off both on the rodents as well as in their nests without harming the rodents themselves.
  2. Personalized service Ask potential organic tick control providers about personalized service. Using a professional who provides a tick survey and analysis will help to ensure the best results by addressing the specific needs of each individual From the types of control being used based on children and pets on the property to the areas and amounts of treatments based on the degrees of infestation as well as consideration of unique property elements and potential habitats, services should be customized to meet the needs of the customer.
  3. Emergency services Ensure that the organic tick control provider you select offers emergency tick services in case of an outdoor event or sudden onset of an infestation. While regular treatments should occur every three to four weeks, it’s good to know that an emergency application can be provided when needed.
