Best In Class For Tick Barrier Control Services
Similar to our mosquito control services, our goal with ticks is to disrupt the lifecycle, starting at larvae to help reduce habitats on a long-term basis. While you can buy tick repellents at any hardware store, there are considerable disadvantages to relying on them if you don’t have tick control experience.
Our team has nearly two decades of experience dealing with ticks, and we know how to effectively control them on your property. We develop a custom plan based on the unique factors of your situation, like your region and the time of year. All of this helps to increase the likelihood that ticks will be wiped out on the spot and will stay away for longer.
Our Tick Tubes Do the Trick
If you’re struggling with a tick infestation, some of the best tools in our arsenal are tick tubes. Tick tubes rely on the relationship between ticks and mice to strategically target these pests – mice are attracted to the tick tubes because they are filled with treated cotton that serves as bedding material they can bring back to their homes. When ticks arrive to feast on the mice, they come into contact with the cotton – wiping them out on the spot.
Biodegradable tick tubes are easy to install and leave a minimal environmental footprint. Contact our team today to learn more about how they’ll work on your property. We’ll set up a visit so our expert team can assess your yard and determine the best places to put fresh tick tubes. With our help, you can look forward to a tick-free outdoor space as quickly as possible.

Preventing Ticks in Your Yard
Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in the United States. In addition to professional tick control, there are several steps you can take to create a “tick-safe zone” on your property. According to the Centers for Disease Control, you should:
- Remove leaf litter.
- Clear tall grasses and brush around homes and at the edge of lawns.
- Place a 3-ft wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas to restrict tick migration into recreational areas.
- Mow the lawn frequently.
- Stack wood neatly and in a dry area (this discourages rodents).
- Keep playground equipment, decks, and patios away from yard edges and trees.
- Discourage unwelcome animals (such as deer, raccoons, and stray dogs) from entering your yard by constructing fences.
- Remove old furniture, mattresses, or trash from the yard that may give ticks a place to hide.
