Protect the pets and people you love with natural, mosquito and tick spray.

Mosquitos and ticks have always been annoying: The tick-ick factor, mosquitos keeping itchy kiddos up at night, and making good-natured dogs irritated and restless. But that’s not the real problem.

Mosquitos and ticks have become a public health concern.

Mosquitos and ticks are now disease vectors, transmitting illnesses to human and animal hosts, from Lyme disease to Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) and even West Nile virus. And our canine and feline friends can add heartworm disease to that list. Worse, these dangerous little buggers can get you without you even noticing. All-natural mosquito and tick repellent is critical to enjoying your backyard safely.

Small yard in the suburbs? Our Control treatment might be all you need. Sprawling yard surrounded by woodlands?
Annual Control is the safest bet

CONTROL

ohDEER’s Tick & Mosquito spray kills pests on contact, eliminating most within four hours and most of the rest within 24 hours.

Every four weeks, spring-fall

CONTROL+

In addition to spraying, we add an additional tick deterrent: a granular solution along the perimeter of your property that ticks hate to cross.

Every four weeks, spring-fall

ANNUAL CONTROL

Ticks don’t die in the winter. They just go dormant, often reawakening (very hungry!) on a warm January day. This offers everything in the Control+ treatment, but year-round.

Every four weeks, year-round

SAY “HELLO” EVERY FOUR WEEKS.
Actually, you don’t have to be home during our treatments, but our technicians will always say “hello” and provide helpful tips. Our spraying season is March through October, but mosquitoes follow the weather, so we’re here when you need us.

Where we spray

We spray the perimeter of your property, extending 6-10 feet back into the woods or tree line and turning over leaf litter where ticks love to live. We also spray 6-10 feet vertically into tree branches and leaves, where mosquitoes live. If you have a fence, we’ll spray around it. We spray around your house; around all high-traffic areas such as pools, swing sets and patios; under decks and porches; and anywhere else moisture can collect, as well as around all vegetation in the interior of the property. Treatments are most effective when lawns are cut weekly and all standing water and leaf litter are removed.

What’s in our Tick and Mosquito Control products?

(We don’t hide behind unpronounceable ingredients.)

Want to know what makes our formula so effective — and great smelling? Here’s how each ingredient contributes and works together to help keep pests in their place (off your property!).

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:
LEMONGRASS OIL:
Lemongrass oil contains citronella, a natural insect repellent that works by masking odors that attract insects so it’s harder to locate their human or animal target!
GERANIOL:
This plant-based compound is made of geranium and citronella and, like lemongrass oil, interferes with a tick’s ability to locate its host.
CASTOR OIL:
Bugs hate both the scent and texture of castor oil.
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE:
A common ingredient in dish soap and shampoo, SLS helps the repellent spread evenly across surfaces to ensure proper distribution.
CORN OIL:
Corn oil serves as a “carrier” for the other active ingredients, ensuring even application and adhesion.
INERT INGREDIENTS:
WATER:
We use fresh water to dilute the repellent so it’s easier to apply.
SOAP:
Soap is needed to emulsify the oil-based active ingredients in water for consistent mixture.
OLEIC ACID:
This fatty acid found in olive oil acts as a stabilizing agent.
1-MONOLAURIN:
This sounds scary, but it’s a naturally occurring compound found in coconut oil, and mosquitoes and ticks hate it!

Still seeing pests?
We’ll respray at no additional charge.

There’s no such thing as a yard with zero pests, but if you’re seeing more than a few between sprays, let us know, and we’ll come back out.
