Tick Control Services
Serving Select Locations in York and Cumberland Counties, Maine
We pride ourselves on attention to detail.
When we do on-site visits, we work with you to identify the highly-trafficked, high-priority places where your family needs protected most, as well as property boundaries and areas of concern. When we step onto your property, we put on our educator caps and leave our pest-exterminator caps in the truck. We’re there to inform you. In fact, there have been occasions that we determine no treatments are necessary, and that’s a good thing!
And if there are any ticks on site, we’ll give you a first-hand demonstration of how our tick-repellent coated clothing works. (Promo code MAINELYTICKS1 for 20% off!) Ticks can’t stand to be on us!
During on-site visits, we provide you with:
- A FREE pair of our fine-pointed magnified tick-removal tweezers. (Also handy for splinters!)
- A FREE educational brochure that includes information on landscape modifications, personal protection strategies, and a full review of the two-year life cycle of the deer tick, which details why our Four-Spray Protocol is essential in maintaining ongoing protection and creating change that is permanent.
- A FREE full-color tick ID guide to determine the type of ticks that you’re likely to find on your property.
- Detailed information about the procedures we use. We make sure you don’t have any questions remaining when we leave.
Tick Control Treatments
Mainely Ticks uses a high-pressure, high-volume spray, agitating and penetrating into the leaf litter and dense environments where ticks live. Compare that to many mosquito services advertising tick control, who utilize backpack misters that simply don’t afford the penetration or deposit the appropriate volume of chemistry.
Our product is EPA-registered and proven to kill: deer ticks, dog ticks, and lone star ticks. It doesn’t destroy the environment.
Mainely Ticks’ proven Multi-Spray Perimeter Protection treatment is the most immediate and effective lawn tick control method. It targets adults in mid-April, nymphs in mid-June, larvae in early August, and adults again in September and October, all resulting in the most effective tick extermination available. Depending on your start date, plan on 4 frontyard and backyard tick control treatments.
This year, Thermacell Tick Tubes and/or Tick Control System boxes (TCS) are available as add-ons to our area sprays or as a no spray option. Tick Tubes and/or TCS boxes are a long-term solution to reducing tick density, and are placed two times/year around the perimeter of your property, in areas such as flower beds, stone walls, under storage sheds, vegetable gardens and other areas that mice and chipmunks frequent. Our technicians will detail both systems and provide you with pricing upon their visit.
