FAQs

Following are a series of Frequently Asked Questins (FAQ's) that we routinely receive from prospective customers. We pride ourselves on attention to detail...understand that to significantly reduce the number of ticks and/or mosquitoes on or about your property requires a partnership between you, the homeowner, and Mainely Ticks. That effort begins with education and awareness.

While the following represents a good mix of initial questions, it is by no means a complete or comprehensive list. Jot down any additional questions or concerns that you have and they will be addressed during our site visit to your property, or forward an email to my attention at bob@mainelyticks.com.
