Tick, Mosquito & Deer Control
It is hard to believe that our peaceful yards can harbor serious threats to our health...
Ticks, mosquitoes and deer are much more than an annoyance. Our area has seen a dramatic increase in tick-borne diseases, including Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis and the Powassan virus. Almstead provides safe, effective tick, mosquito and deer control for your property. We offer a range of treatment options including organic programs. Our arborists and technicians are licensed in pest management and also understand how to make your property less hospitable to ticks, mosquitoes and deer.
Over 3,000 people in the tri-state area are diagnosed with Lyme Disease every year. Infection rates in our area are among the highest in the country. The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends applying pesticides in your yard to control tick populations. When applied properly, tick pesticides (known as acaricides) are extremely effective for tick control.
As an alternative to traditional pesticides, Almstead offers organic tick control using Cedar Cure™, which uses cedar wood oil to kill and repel ticks. Almstead technicians understand where ticks hide; we use powerful sprays to penetrate leaf litter for effective coverage. We are experts at tick control; in addition to treating your property, your arborist can make recommendations on how to make your yard a less tick-friendly environment.
The appearance of West Nile Virus in our area has changed our view of mosquitoes from annoying pests to dangerous disease carriers. Treating for mosquitoes can control these pests in your area. Almstead offers organic sprays for mosquitoes as well as traditional products.
Does it seem that mosquitoes have become more bothersome recently? You may be experiencing a recent arrival to our area: the Asian Tiger Mosquito. Unlike our native mosquitoes, the Asian Tiger Mosquito is active during the day. Our Almstead technicians will help keep your yard and your family safe from mosquitoes.
Protect your landscape from deer damage with our Deer Repellent Services.
Keeping deer away from your trees and shrubs requires a strategy. Your Almstead
arborist can inspect your property and recommend solutions that are best suited
for your landscape — such as deer repellent sprays that make trees and shrubs
unappealing to deer, and planting deer resistant trees and shrubs.
For more information or to schedule an appointment for our Deer Repellent Services, please contact your
Almstead Branch Office.
Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that is responsible for thousands of birth defects in Latin America. As mosquito season arrives in the U.S., experts are concerned that Zika will gain a foothold here as well. With no approved vaccine or treatment available, mosquito control is the best way to prevent the spread of the virus.
For more information on the Zika Virus, please visit the CDC website.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides information on the current situation and what we can do to stay safe from ticks, mosquitoes and other diseases.
