Controlling ticks around your yard and keeping them off your pets and out of your home is a full-time job. We get it. That’s why the entomologists at American Pest developed tried and true tick treatments that are guaranteed to get results.

Our Approach to Tick Control in Maryland & NOVA

We approach tick control with a team of pest professionals who are trained in the unique biology of ticks and their habits. The key to solving your tick problems begins with a discussion about your needs, including the unique landscape of your yard and the area surrounding your home. Our services include monthly spray treatments for tick zones, including under decks, along fences, wooded areas, and lawns.

Why Get Tick Treatments?

There are several reasons why our customers opt for seasonal tick treatments, but few are as concerning as the real threat of Lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected tick, after bacteria is passed from a blacklegged (deer) tick to its host. The disease will touch an estimated 3000 people in Maryland and Virginia this year and has been shown to have lifetime effects on its victims. School-aged children are among the group most at risk for Lyme disease, chiefly because they play outdoors and on lawns where deer ticks are present.

Top Rated Tick Treatments for Special Events

Many adults in Maryland and Virginia concern themselves over tick prevention, because Lyme disease is legitimate danger in our area. Planning a special event? Protect your party guests from ticks that carry disease by deploying American Pest to spray for ticks 24-48 hours before your crowd arrives. Our services radically decrease the population of ticks in your yard and surrounding areas, protecting your guests, children and pets. Adding tick treatment to your to-do list is an important part of planning your event or ceremony this summer!
