Back in 2010, I decided that I wanted to take back my own yard from insects and pests. Our Canadian summers are so short and I was tired of being driven inside. I began experimenting with the available products on the market - ranging from dangerous DEET available in big box stores to the sprays from pesticide companies. All of these sprays and services caused more harm than good.
In the midst of my frustration, I remembered my mother spraying our backyard with a misting bottle that always left out backyard smelling like barbecue. This began an entirely new search, as I started asking my own family what it was that mom used to spray our yard when we were kids. As is often the case I received a few different answers but they all amounted to the same thing - garlic. Realizing that I was looking for new solutions when what I needed was old school technology, I started treating my property - and it worked.
Over time I began talking to my neighbours and heard their concerns echoed in my search. They wanted to be enjoying time outside but it needed to be safe for their children, pets, and plants. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to mist everyone’s yard with my mom's spray so I started down a new research path and found that garlic (super garlic in particular) was my answer. From there Eco-Tick Solutions Inc. was born.
I am proud to own Eco-Tick Solutions and am pleased with the results I have had for myself, my friends, and my customers. Our treatment is effective against ticks, mosquitoes, chiggers, and fleas; they are repelled and not able to breed in the treated area. Needless to say, we now enjoy our backyard again. Don't stay out 'just until the mosquitoes start biting. Stay out until it's time to go to bed.
