ohDEER Pest Control


We’re on a mission

… to keep people, pets and plants protected from pests.

Okay, we’re out of “P” words. Oh, wait, here’s one more. The planet! We believe that enjoying a pest-free backyard doesn’t have to come at the expense of a healthy ecosystem. This starts with creating eco-friendly formulas that not only work but are made from effective, plant-based ingredients. It also extends to our own ecosystem: our team. The people you’ll meet (or wave to!) are friendly and knowledgeable. We’re here to answer any questions, give you advice or even help you carry that trampoline to the other side of the yard. Just ask!

It all started with a deer who wouldn’t stay away from an apple tree …

Since he was a little boy growing up in Weston, Massachusetts, ohDEER founder Kurt Upham has been fascinated by animals, especially deer. In 2006, he began experimenting with an all-natural deer control formula that would keep deer away from his neighbor’s apple trees without harming them. (He also loves animals.) Word-of-mouth quickly spread, and people began seeking out “that deer guy.” And ohDEER was born. Today you’ll find ohDEER fans up and down the Eastern Seaboard. The only non-fans? Deer, mosquitos, and ticks. But Kurt can live with that.


We believe you should be able to protect your family and the planet.

This means choosing products that reduce your risk of harmful diseases without endangering our planet’s delicate ecological balance. Synthetic pesticides may work in the short term but ultimately lead to resistance in pests, which requires even more toxic chemicals. And that’s no way to live. Literally.

Community Initiatives

T.I.C.K for children

FREE sprays for preschools

We created Take Initiative Check Kids (T.I.C.K.) to make it easier to help protect the children in your community from Lyme disease and tick-borne illness. This includes FREE spraying for preschools with our All-Natural Tick & Mosquito Control. We also give out kid-friendly materials and activities they can share with their parents.


T.I.C.K9 for dogs

Like kids, dogs are outside a lot, exploring the world. We want to help keep our furry friends safe and happy with all-natural sprays for homes, vets and doggy day cares. Our T.I.C.K9 program includes free educational materials for their sitters and “parents.”


Our Re-Spray

Some seasons are worse than others! Damper weather means ticks and mosquitoes like to stick around. And we don’t want that! So if you’re still seeing these stubborn little pests within two weeks of a spray, we’ll just come back out and spray again, no charge!
