Protecting Your New Jersey Yard From Harmful Ticks

Some pests, like bed bugs, have been known and talked about for thousands of years. Others, like ticks, seem to have suddenly jumped onto the pest scene with little notice. Nearly unknown a few decades ago, ticks have become a greater and greater problem with every passing year.

As their populations grow, so too does the fear of contracting a tick-borne disease. Here in New Jersey, ticks spread a number of dangerous illnesses, including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and more. Because of their large numbers, small size, and ability to climb onto a host without being noticed, there’s good reason to be worried about ticks on your property. If you want to protect your family from the disease ticks spread, AMCO can help with our tick control services in Rutherford, New Jersey.

Our Tick Control Process

Our three-step tick control program not only gets rid of ticks from your yard but also returns your home to the condition it was in before the infestation:

  • Inspection – In order to provide your property with the best tick control possible, we have to gather some information before we perform any kind of treatment. During our inspection, we’ll determine how large the lawn is for planning and pricing purposes. We’ll also try to determine what type of tick is present on your property and will identify the conditions that may be attracting ticks to your property.

    Once we’ve completed our inspection, we’ll give you a quote for our tick control service. If you choose to proceed, we’ll move on with your first treatment.

  • Treatment – By treating your lawn, and especially the areas around your lawn where ticks are known to harbor, we can keep your yard a safer, tick-free place to spend time. The products we use are environmentally friendly and safe for kids and pets.

  • Follow-Up – For maximum tick control and the most effective results, follow-up treatments are necessary. We’ll work with you to determine whether monthly or quarterly treatments are the best option to meet your needs.


Why do I have a flea & tick problem?

Fleas and ticks are outdoor pests that live most of their lives on the backs of their hosts. As wild animals make their way across our yards, fleas and ticks fall off of their bodies and into our yards.

Once in our yards, fleas and ticks can enter our homes in a few different ways, including the following:

  • Jumping or climbing onto you, your kids, or pets and then being carried inside.

  • On the backs of rodents or other wild animals that get into our homes to nest.

  • On already infested items such as used furniture or rugs.

Flea & Tick Prevention Tips

To make your property less attractive to fleas and ticks, use the following easy-to-execute prevention tips:

  • Keep the grass on your property cut short.

  • Cut vegetation back away from your house to allow the sun to hit and dry out the soil.

  • Remove bird feeders from your property that could attract wild animals.

  • Prevent wild animals from foraging for food on your property by keeping locking lids on trash cans and compost bins.

  • Keep wild animals out of your home by sealing entry points in the foundation and exterior walls.

  • Do not purchase used furniture or rugs for your home.

  • Wash pet bedding and vacuum your home regularly.

  • Keep pets off of the beds and furniture inside of your home.

  • Have your veterinarian put your pets on a year-round flea and tick control program.
