As with many insects, ticks have a lifecycle that starts with the egg. It develops from there into the larvae stage, which has 6 legs. From there it grows into the young adult or nymph stage, which has 8 legs, and then continues on to the full adult stage. The lifecycle can take from one year up to three years in colder climates. A single female can lay as many as 10,000 eggs before dying. The eggs hatch in about two weeks and the lifecycle starts all over again.
Nymphs are most active in the warm months from May through July. Adult ticks are most active during spring and fall, even with freezing conditions. This product attacks the insect’s exoskeleton, which is dehydrated and eroded. It also destroys the egg and larvae stage, eliminating the next generation. Cedar oil is a natural repellant that keeps ticks from entering your property.
Mosquitos and flies, also known as perpetual egg layers, are immediately controlled. The result is a reduced insect population within the treated areas.
Research has shown some insects to be eliminated within minutes while others will be eliminated within 24 hours, depending on insect and saturation. This product is designed to significantly minimize tick & insect populations.Tree Care
