Control mosquitoes and ticks: the Western way

Western Technicians will identify the areas in your yard to be treated for these biting pests, and apply a barrier treatment using EPA-registered products. We'll eliminate adult mosquitoes and ticks, control mosquito and tick larvae, control tick nymphs, and prevent mosquito reproduction.

This treatment will be applied to all places where mosquitoes and ticks rest, including:

  • Perimeter vegetation
  • Weeds, tall grasses, shrubs
  • Lowermost tree limbs (no more than 10 feet high)
  • Ground cover such as ivy, grasses in cool, damp or shady areas, and other ornamental plants
  • Mulch and landscape beds next to your home
  • Transition zones where the lawn borders a wooded area
  • Areas of leaf litter and overgrown vegetation
  • Eaves and overhangs
  • Accessible areas beneath decks and porches
  • Any standing water such as fountains and birdbaths

Your Western Technician will also offer recommendations to help eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites and reduce tick habitat areas in your yard.

Why do I need mosquito and tick control?

Our mosquito and tick control service will help reduce your exposure to these biting pests in your yard, which will decrease your exposure to serious diseases, including West Nile Virus (mosquitoes) and Lyme Disease (ticks). 

Plus, no one enjoys a backyard less than when they are constantly getting bit by mosquitoes or having to worry about ticks. This service reduces the population of mosquitoes and ticks, which will lessen your chances of getting bit and calm your worries. Ultimately, you'll get peace of mind and the ability to enjoy your yard.

Frequently asked questions


  • When is the best time to treat for mosquitoes and ticks?

    Mosquitoes and ticks come out in warm weather, making our monthly treatment against mosquitoes and ticks the recommended option. The number of months that service is conducted will vary based on your location. Contact the experts at Western to learn more.


  • Does the mosquito and tick control service protect my pets?

    Yes! Our mosquito and tick control service is safe for pets and will control these biting pests in your yard, giving you the freedom to worry less about your furry friends contracting serious diseases.

    We still recommend treating your pets as necessary to prevent these diseases, per your vet’s recommendations. Your pets can still contract these diseases in other places.


  • Is mosquito and tick control only used in the yard?

    Your Technician will treat your yard focusing on the areas where mosquitoes and ticks reside, ensuring that objects such as children’s toys, pet food bowls, and lawn furniture are moved out of the treatment area. Your Technician will also avoid applications to herb/vegetable gardens and food preparation equipment areas (grills, bars, etc.).


  • When are mosquitoes and ticks most active?

    Mosquitoes prefer warm weather and come out during the spring months. They are most active at dusk during the summer and will taper off in the fall. They become inactive after the first freeze and when temperatures are consistently below 50 degrees.

    Ticks are also more common in the warmer months, but are still present in the cooler months. They are active as long as the temperature is above freezing and there is no snow on the ground. They particularly like to hide in leaf litter to keep warm, so be careful cleaning up your leaves in the fall.
