At Go Green Lawn Services, we have a “no pest left behind” policy. This includes ticks and fleas, considered to be some of the most prevalent and invasive parasites native to the following serviceable areas: Coatesville, Newtown, Pottstown, Kennett Square, and West Chester. Ticks and fleas can be found all over PA as well as the country, but the Delaware Valley is a particular hotbed due to our forests and wooded areas. Both ticks and fleas have similar functions, but it’s important to know the differences between the two when exploring options for tick and flea treatment for your yard.
Fleas are wingless insects with six legs that launch and propel them upwards of 7 inches vertically and as far as 13 inches horizontally. This makes them one of the best jumpers of the entire animal kingdom relative to their size and explains why they can spread as fast as they do. Because they can live for more than 100 days, with females laying 20 to 40 eggs per day for several weeks (the longer they are on a host, the more eggs they lay), it is essential to treat and remove the parasites immediately. Go Green’s lawn flea treatment is one the best ways to prevent flea infestations and protect your children and pets from bartonellosis and tapeworm, the most commonly transmitted diseases by fleas.
Common Hosts and How To Treat Fleas
Fleas target dogs, cats, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, and opossums, but will also latch onto a human’s hair follicles. You can breathe a sigh of relief though, good hygiene and a hot shower will usually wash these parasites away. Your pet’s full coat of fur, however, is a breeding ground for fleas. For this reason, we recommend our lawn flea treatment to get to the root of the problem and stop the breeding at the source.
To the dismay of all arachnophobes, ticks are, in fact, arachnids. These eight-legged parasites are closely related to spiders, but ticks exclusively feed on blood, making their web-spinning cousins pale in comparison. Ticks are generally found in grassy or wooded areas close to where their prospective hosts feed, which is, unfortunately, just about everywhere in the Delaware Valley. For this reason, it is especially important for your safety and the safety of your family and pets to conduct regular tick treatments for your yard.
Common Hosts and How to Treat Ticks
Ticks are every parent’s worst nightmare as summer rolls around. Nature returns to life bringing vibrant trees, sprawling plants, and beautiful flowers back to the Delaware Valley. Riding the coattails of our favorite seasonal transition is a slew of parasites aiming to spoil our warm-weather fun. Ticks can to feed on just about any land mammals throughout their lifecycle, including humans and our pets. Because of this, we recommend contacting us to explore tick treatments for your yard.

Year-Round Tick and Flea Treatment for Your Yard
In lush areas like West Chester, Kennett Square, and Coatesville, timely applications throughout the year are the best way to keep ticks and fleas away from your loved ones. We keep you secure with four standard applications that involve comprehensive treatment for your property in addition to the direct targeting of high-risk areas. Depending on the location and pest history of your lawn, we understand that you may need more frequent care. That’s why we offer the option to custom-design a Go Green Flea and Tick program for your individual needs. Because of the clingy-nature of the tick, lawn treatments for your home can sound invasive in and of itself. We will consult with you to determine the ideal application schedule for your home.
