Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they can pose a serious health risk. These pests are known to transmit diseases like Zika Virus, Malaria, Yellow Fever, and the West Nile Virus. Their bites can cause irritation and swelling, and in some cases, trigger allergic reactions. Depending on temperature a mosquito can complete its life cycle in as little as 10-14 days creating a steady population of these annoying pests. If you’re concerned about mosquitoes on your property, Shades of Green is here to help. Don’t let these pests ruin your summer; call us today!
Tick Control Program
Our effective tick control program is important in protecting your family’s health without compromising your property.

These tick tubes have been proven to reduce the ricks of encountering infected ticks by up to 97%. They are filled with cotton containing a pesticide permethrin, which kills the ticks and leaves the mice unharmed. Our Tick control treatments target your entire property to reduce the number of active ticks you have. Our 100% Organic treatment is safe for humans and pets while keeping these pests out.
