Have you met FCC's latest sponsor, Tick Stoppers? Based in Fairfield and serving all of Fairfield County, Tick Stoppers is a division of Charron Tree and Shrub Care and they offer both natural organic and synthetic options to keep your yard tick-free.
Owner Tom Charron (shown with one of his 3 daughters) is a licensed arborist and he's passionate about keeping our yards safe from ticks. Ticks are the #1 cause of Lyme Disease, a life-threatening condition that originated in Connecticut.
Tom recommends a 4 step tick program to keep your kids safe from ticks this summer. In his own words, here's why:
The first application is done in April to target the adult ticks that have survived the winter. The 2nd application is in late May-early June and targets the hatching nymphs. 3rd application is in August to target the larvae at peak activity and the 4th application is in October to target adults at peak activity. The treatments kill the current population on the property when we treat it.
Call Tick Stoppers at (203) 993-5745 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for a free estimate. Just mention FairfieldCountyChild.com and when you sign up for a tick program you'll receive your 4th spray free!
