How This Works
Our community control program was developed to address ticks, mosquitoes and poison ivy simultaneously, at a cost far less than traditional services.
Our process works by addressing all threats at one time, on monthly visits to your community, for one cost. More so, we offer host-focused tick reduction devices that provide a long-term approach to ticks. Our cost never changes during the season so if an outbreak of any threat occurs your price stays the same.
Our program will address:
Mites & Chiggers
Our Comprehensive Prevention Program provides your community automatic certification with Tick, Mosquito & Poison Ivy Control.
Listing on our database
Online account which includes data from treatments
Tick population measurements
Poison ivy prevalence mapping
Certified community signs
Public safety information materials
How Much Does This Cost?
Cost is determined by the size of you community and the number of residences within the community. We are typically over 75% less expensive per resident versus other control options with cost between $9 and $19 per residence per treatment.

Why Communities Partner With Ivy Oaks
Safety: Ensuring highest possible safety standards for residents and guests is one of the primary reasons communities partner with us. Residents also find the absence of gnats and mosquitoes much more pleasant.
Competition: Home buyers have many factors to consider when purchasing a new home. Community safety is of high importance and neighborhood associations mention safety and security features to potential residents. However, the overwhelming majority of neighborhoods have no public health control program for ticks and mosquitoes. By implementing our program you, and your residents, can now market having the most advanced tick and mosquito control program. With growing public awareness and concern for rising insect-borne diseases our program is a very attractive feature of living in your community.
Peace of Mind: Implementing our program provides community managers with an understanding that everything which can be done to mitigate the risk of Lyme Disease, Ticks, Mosquitoes, Poison Ivy and similar threats is being done. The responsibility related to tick and mosquito safety is shifted to us.
Cost: We can typically provide neighborhood-wide control services for between $9 and $19 per treatment per residence. This is over 75% less than traditional options. These traditional options also lack certification, analysis, and many other benefits.
Control of ticks is a service we are devoted to provide. Ticks can carry many dangerous diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and many others. Our Tick Control program combines many tools to safely reduce population numbers and reduce the likelihood of these tick-borne injuries and diseases. Control also includes actively monitoring the decrease in tick population and consistent communication with clients in the event any tick activity occurs.
Host-Oriented Tick Control
The bacteria of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, often enters ticks after they have hosted on small rodents, especially the white-footed mouse. With an innovate technique we use devices that are able to shift rodents from supportive tick hosts, to tick killers.
These devices apply a liquid to small rodents while feeding. This liquid prevents ticks from hosting and shifts small rodents from supportive tick hosts, to tick killers. This liquid in no way harms the animals and is similar to Flea & Tick Prevention for pets.
In order for us to successfully lower tick populations we use multiple tools. For controlling ticks at a single home one strategy may be all that is required. However, as we safely reduce ticks in large outdoor areas we implement multiple strategies. Other options not mentioned are also available for use. The specific options we employ will depend upon your facility size, budget, desired time frame of effective control (example only while campers are present), and similar factors.
We strive to implement the safest control process available. A crucial component of our tick control efforts is often our natural solution. This solution is conducted in a unique method that allows us to treat large areas in a short period of time. We do not conduct spraying from airplanes, or any similar aerial method.
Mosquito control can be difficult, particularly in large outdoor areas. This requires a long-term approach directed at the source. We address mosquitoes before they emerge while they are still in their larva stage. By treating mosquitoes when they are at this most vulnerable stage we disrupt their reproduction cycle. It is a more feasible manner to treat large areas as larvae cluster in concentrated groups. This further enables us to provide this treatment using less resources. Outside of shorelines near ponds, lakes, or other bodies of water, areas of standing-water are often preferred breeding grounds. We inspect your community to alter or recommend removal of any objects or structures that are probable breeding zones.
Poison Ivy Control
Our Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, and Poison Sumac Prevention requires one treatment every 30 days. The most extensive treatment is the first treatment as we aim to eliminate and prevent regrowth of as much of the plant as possible. By employing this initial strategy the majority of our follow up visits are essentially light maintenance. Follow up visits also include inspections to ensure no growth is occurring in other areas.
We can handle any amount of poison ivy, just check out the before and after images.
