Our Tick & Mosquito Management Program will substantially reduce the population of these pests on your property. Ticks and Mosquitoes spend a lot of time resting on areas we can treat to not only control them upon contact, but also reduce future problems. The materials we apply will continue to control these pests for 4-6 weeks after treatment.

Mosquito Management

Mosquitoes carry many diseases, including West Nile virus. Central PA is a notorious area for mosquito activity and many cases of West Nile virus are reported. One in five people infected with West Nile virus will develop symptoms such as: headache, body aches, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue that can last for several weeks. It’s rare that severe cases can develop into serious neurological illnesses, but mosquitoes are still a major nuisance for people who love to spend time outdoors during the warmer months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is used to spray for mosquitoes & ticks?

Our Mosquito and Tick product’s active ingredient is an essential oil-based spray that is chemical-free.

Is this safe for my kids and pets?

Yes. This treatment is chemical-free, making it a great option for use around children, pets, and other wildlife.

Will the treatment damage my garden?

No. Our pest control techs will not spray your consumable garden (vegetables, herbs, etc.). Areas of focus tend to be harborage areas (places mosquitoes hide). This includes shrubs, the perimeter of your home, and under trees.

How does the treatment work?

The plant oils in the spray cause immediate insect paralysis and fast-kill many insects. The oils also repel insects that come within its vicinity, providing longer-term protection.

"The new mosquito treatment last year allowed our family to finally enjoy our backyard after 5 years of living in our home. Mosquitoes were so bad in our backyard, I rarely spent time outdoors because of the terrible bites. I am so relieved that we have a safe environment for children and pets to play, and an enjoyable entertaining space too, without the uninvited pest guests!"
