Pros: Very effective
Cons: It's a dangerous chemical
We used this chemical through a pest control company specifically for the control of wood ticks and deer ticks. We were finding at least 5-6 wood ticks PER WEEK on either my son, my husband, myself or our 4 pets. It was not only scary but disgusting. After the spraying, we found a total of 4 ticks for the REST OF THE YEAR, even though they said we should have sprayed again in August. We had to be very careful about my son (2 at the time) and the animals eating grass at all and we had to wait overnight for the spray to dry. All in all, it was very worth it. We are planning on doing it again this year, although, we are still deciding whether to have a company do it or if we are going to do it ourselves. It cost us $150.00 for about 3/4 of an acre...we did only the fenced part of our yard where the pets and my son would play. Our yard has woods on 2 sides so I considered it to be extremely effective in the control of the ticks.
