Flea, Tick & Mosquito Control in Maryland & Northern Virginia

Our long warm season in Maryland and Virginia provides the perfect breeding conditions for Mosquitoes, fleas and ticks throughout the spring, summer, and fall. To help protect your family from these pesky and dangerous insects, our Associate Certified Entomologist on staff developed our signature 5 Point Mosquito, Flea, and Tick Protection Plan.

Along with repelling and exterminating existing pest populations to provide immediate relief, our program targets reproductive habitats, providing both short and long-term protection.

Mosquito Control

Aside from constantly plaguing your family members with their bites, mosquitoes can also be dangerous. Their bites can transfer deadly diseases, such as the West Nile, Dengue, Chikungunya, and Zika virus. And considering that a single female mosquito can lay hundreds of eggs in as little as one cup of water, it’s important to protect your yard and family against these menacing pests.

Our team of local mosquito exterminators will provide a free initial inspection, followed by 8 treatments throughout April and November that use eco-friendly and EPA-certified products that are safe for your family and pets.

One-Time Service for Special Events

We all love attending outdoor events, whether it’s a wedding, family barbecue, or pool party—so don’t let mosquitoes spoil the fun! We offer Special Event Mosquito control that guarantees that your outdoor space will be as mosquito-free as possible for that special event.

This service includes an area-specific mosquito treatment within 24-48 hours of your celebration, utilizing an effective, odor-free product.

Flea Control

Similar to mosquitoes, fleas can also transmit serious diseases, such as Plague, flea-borne typhus, Cat Scratch Disease (CSD), and various parasites, such as tapeworms. If you find fleas on your pets or around carpeted areas, it is important to seek treatment immediately.

Unlike traditional insecticides or DIY flea bombs, our flea extermination service is designed to reach open spaces and sheltered areas inside and outside your home. We’ll treat areas in your yard where fleas are likely to hibernate and lay their eggs, stopping fleas before they can hatch and attach to your pets. You can rest assured knowing that your services are family-friendly and come with a satisfaction guarantee!

Tick Control

Ticks are not only a nuisance but can pose a serious threat to the health of your family and pets, especially during the summer months. The black-legged tick, which is prevalent in the Northeast, can transmit dangerous pathogens, such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and Powassan disease.

Our tick exterminators are highly trained to identify areas in and around your home where ticks might be hiding, such as bushes, shrubs, and under decks. We then use highly targeted chemical treatments to create a barrier around trees, ornamentals, and your landscaping. Ensure your family’s and pets’ safety all summer long with our highly effective tick control programs.
