Getting rid of ticks

Pest Solutions 365 can determine the size of the tick infestation and your pest control needs with a professional pest audit. Only $25 for a 20-minute inspection.

Some simple things can be done to slow the infestation in your home:

Wear medicated body powder or food-grade DE mixed in menthol or diluted geranium oil to try to repel ticks when outdoors. You can also wear Safe Solutions Insect Repellent.

Ticks are extremely hard to control, even with food-grade DE and Safe Solutions enzyme cleaners, (1 oz. per quart water.) Nothing kills ticks faster than Safe Solutions enzyme cleaners, but you must cover the tick with the spray. Repeat as needed.
