Mosquito & Tick Defense
Highland’s Mosquito & Tick Defense Program will help you enjoy a mosquito-free yard without exposing yourself, children, and pets to harmful pesticides.
No matter how pleasant the weather or how gorgeous the landscaping, unwelcome mosquitoes can make your yard unusable during the best months of the year. And due to mosquito-borne diseases, their presence is not only a nuisance, but a potential threat. Mosquitoes can transmit West Nile Virus, Zika, Dengue and more.
In response, many companies have begun spraying synthetic pesticides. Pesticide sprays are harmful to children and pets who play in the yard. What’s more, they kill bees and other pollinators, while generating pesticide resistance in mosquitoes and ticks.
Enjoy your yard again with non-toxic Mosquito and Tick control!
The Highland Way to Control Mosquitoes and Ticks
Our Mosquito Defense program is the greenest and most effective way to control mosquitos and ticks on your property.
First, we will conduct a thorough inspection to identify mosquito breeding sites. We then set up traps for pregnant female mosquitos to limit reproduction. Every three weeks we will visit your property to spray a fine mist of our all-natural repellent, diluted with water. Technicians will also dump any standing water and treat stagnant water pools with eco-friendly mosquito dunks.
We are a locally owned, family-run business—not a big franchise. When you call us you will be immediately connected to our friendly staff who can answer questions and arrange a treatment for your yard as soon as possible.
Our All-Natural Spray
Our spray is 100% natural and therefore safe for people, pets, plants and pollinators. It’s made of lemongrass, garlic, cedar and peppermint oils and it works great!
Unlike pesticide treatments, your yard is safe to play on 30 minutes after treatment. Also, if you grow food, such as tomatoes or herbs, they are not negatively impacted by our treatment and are safe to eat.
Speaking of crops, did you know that one-third of our food is pollinated thanks to busy bees? But bees have been disappearing in large numbers partially because of overuse of synthetic pesticides. These pesticides have also given rise to chemical-resistant superbugs that need ever-stronger chemicals to be killed, a vicious cycle we just don’t want to be part of. That’s why we never spray pyrethrin chemicals outside.
