With our Organic Peremeter Pest Control Program!
On April 11, 2016, Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced “Everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought.” She also stated “Most of what we’ve learned is not reassuring,”.
“This is a very unusual virus that we can’t pretend to know everything about it that we need to know,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “I’m not an alarmist and most of you who know me know that I am not, but the more we learn about the neurological aspects, the more we look around and say this is very serious.”
Majestic Lawn Care and Landscape, Inc. offers a 7 application Mosquito & Tick Plan in Rockland County, NY and Bergen County, NJ. This plan is designed to control the population of Ticks and Mosquitos on the property, including the Asian Tiger Mosquito which causes the Zika Virus. Majestic will spray the perimeter of your property i.e., trees, shrubs, rock walls, wood & debris piles (all places Mosquitoes & Ticks love to rest and hide in). We will also spray your foundation landscape + 4’ up the outside of your house to assure we get all of the places they hide. In addition to all that, we spray any trees or planting beds in your yard as well.
Majestic will apply your first (2) applications within the first 2 weeks of signing up, and will come out every 3 to 4 weeks after that. Customers want to have a Mosquito and Tick free property and with our aggressive plan, we can control the population.
Mosquito & Tick Control Introduction:
Mosquito & Tick control is designed to reduce the population of mosquitos from a residential or commercial property in Rockland County, NY and Bergen County, NJ. We will not eliminate the Ticks or Mosquitos all together. The more applications the better the control program will work. Mosquitos will fly in for a blood meal from a few feet in some cases to as far as 50 miles away and ticks can be brought in by birds or animals. Our goal is to treat all the areas around the customer’s property that a mosquito will land on to rest. Below is the instruction on how we will complete this task.
- Treatments will occur from the months of April thru September
- First 2 rounds will be applied in the first 2 weeks after signing up for the program
- 2 to 3 weeks in between treatments are highly recommended
- A minimum of 4 treatments is required to aid in the control of Mosquitoes
- The busiest months for mosquito control will be June, July, and August
- A 1X service will be offered for events on a customer’s property such as a wedding or party

Other ways to protect your Family and Pets:
Repel with your Clothes:
You know the drill for avoiding mosquitos: long pants, long sleeves. Get extra protection with clothing containing permethrin, a synthetic insecticide. The Environmental Protection Agency has determined permethrin products are effective and safe for pregnant women and children and repel both Ticks and Mosquitos.
Since mosquitos have an appetite for your feet, stick to shoes with full coverage (not sandals) and socks. This is also not a good time for yoga pants—mosquitos can easily bite through Spandex. Generally, baggier clothes offer better protection. Protect your head with a hat and sunglasses.
Prep your Home:
Many Americans are relatively protected from the Zika virus at the moment because mosquitos die or go into hibernation in cold winter weather. When temperatures rise to 50 or 60 degrees Fahrenheit, however, mosquitoes can reappear and spread disease.
Just one tablespoon of water can serve as a mosquito breeding ground and produce up to 300 mosquitos. The insects can breed in the bottom of a glass in the bathroom (like one you use to brush your teeth with) or in a film of water next to the sink. Eliminate standing water throughout the home, including in flower pots, bottles, and accumulating garbage.
Have a pool? No need to drain—mosquitoes are deterred by the chlorine that keeps the pool clean and safe for swimming.
The best way to avoid Zika virus is to avoid affected areas. Check the CDC’s regularly updated list of countries and territories with active Zika virus transmission. If you must travel to an affected country, stay in air-conditioned areas, sleep under bed nets if your room may have mosquitos, and use mosquito repellent vigilantly.
If you’re pregnant, talk to your physician, and possibly reconsider your trip. The CDC issued an advisory this month for pregnant women to consider postponing travel to affected countries. If your trip is already scheduled, check options with your airline. Three major domestic carriers—United, Delta, and American Airlines—are allowing qualified passengers to re-book their trips without cancellation fees.
