TICK CONTROL

The Green Scene uses an odorless insect control that is safe enough to be labeled for indoor or outdoor use by the Environmental Protection Agency yet effective enough to help safeguard your family and pets.  Your property will be available for use approximately 1 hour after treatment or until dew on the grass is dry.

About Lyme disease (information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control)

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected blacklegged ticks.  Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans.   If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.  Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks; laboratory testing is helpful in the later stages of disease.  Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated successfully with a few weeks of antibiotics.  Steps to prevent Lyme disease include using insect repellent, removing ticks promptly, landscaping and integrated pest management.  The ticks that transmit Lyme disease can occasionally transmit other tick-borne diseases.
