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 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 are 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
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
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
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
From the right (and wrong!) way to remove a tick, to why you should reconsider groundcover — and what to plant instead — this resource page is all about ticks. Bookmark it and refer to it often! (Especially from March ‘til that ground is frozen solid.)
From the fruit you put on your morning cereal, to the color deck chair you sit in, small changes can make a big difference when it comes to keeping mosquitos away. Read all about it here—including why you should switch to unscented soap for the summer!
Our safe and effective spray kills mosquitoes and ticks in 24 hours or less, without leaving behind a chemical residue on yard toys and swing sets that can make kids and pets sick. And because this product has no adverse effects on aquatic ecosystems or water quality, it’s safe to use around marshy areas, pools and shorelines.
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.
