What is our flea and tick control treatment application schedule?

At Sam's Turf Care, we apply our flea and tick control treatments once a year between mid-July and late August. We apply the application at this time because fleas and ticks thrive and multiply the most during the late summer. This is because they become more widespread when humidity levels are between 50 and 90 percent. In warmer temperatures and higher humidity levels, fleas and ticks lay a lot more eggs and a lot more eggs are hatching quicker. Our team ensures that this does not impact your property by spraying our treatments during their peak season for the best results.


What makes our flea and tick control treatments unique and effective?

The biggest reason that our flea and tick control treatments are unique and effective is that our treatments are granular as opposed to liquid. Granular flea and tick treatments are significantly better than their liquid counterparts in a few ways. One reason is that it is much easier to control where the granules end up than if you were spraying a liquid treatment. Granular treatments can also be more effective than liquid treatments because they are formulated to withstand rain or watering; liquid treatments are prone to washing away before pests have a chance to ingest them.


We offer our flea and tick control treatments in conjunction with our lawn care program.
