Fleas and ticks are annoying little pests that like to hide in your lawn and could be harmful to you and your loved ones. Flea and tick season is around the corner here in Columbus, OH, beginning in April, when the weather gets warmer, and finishing in September when it starts getting colder. If you plan to treat your property for these pests, it's important to know how many times you need to spray during this time. Most flea and tick control products only last about 4-6 weeks, so you'll need to reapply about four times to get you through the season. However, you can make your life easier by signing up for a professional flea and tick control program.

When is flea and tick season in Columbus, OH?

Fleas and ticks become more active as the weather warms up, usually starting in the spring. Because of this, the active flea and tick season in Columbus, OH, typically starts in April or May and runs through September. They’ll start to become inactive as the weather gets colder.

How often do you need to spray for fleas and ticks?

Spraying for fleas and ticks throughout their most active season is the best way to make sure they don’t infest your property. However, most flea and tick control treatments last for only about 4-6 weeks before they wear off, so one treatment isn’t going to carry you through the entirety of the season. If you want to keep these pests away, you’ll have to spray about four times during the season. Not only that, but you’ll have to apply each new application before the old one wears off. That way, you’ll never have a lapse in coverage against fleas and ticks!

Fleas and ticks like to live under debris, like leaves, so it's best to keep your lawn free of anything they can make a home under.
