Control mosquitoes and ticks: the Presto-X way

For our mosquito and tick control service, a Presto-X Technician will identify the areas in your yard to be treated for these biting pests. A barrier treatment using EPA-registered products 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 Presto-X Technician will also offer recommendations to help eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites and reduce tick habitat areas in your yard.

Frequently asked questions

Our experts answer some of the most common questions around our mosquito and tick control service.

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

Mosquitoes and ticks come out when the weather gets warmer. However, for season-long protection against mosquitoes and ticks, we would recommend our monthly treatment. The number of months that service is conducted will vary based on your location. Contact the experts at Presto-X to learn more.

Does the mosquito and tick control service protect my pets?

Yes! The parasite that causes heartworm in dogs is spread through mosquito bites, and pets can also contract Lyme disease from ticks. 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 you 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 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.

Like mosquitoes, ticks are more common in the warmer months, but ticks are still present in the cooler months. Ticks 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.
