Who we are and what we do:

We provide service to residential and commercial properties throughout the state of RI. Our mission is to help clients defend themselves from the growing concern of diseases that are being spread by tick and mosquito populations. These vector-borne diseases, particularly in RI, include Lyme disease, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis). It is known that the best way to avoid these diseases is, DON’T GET BIT!

EPA approved time-tested products

At RI Tick Defense, we are passionate about making it safer for families to play outside again. Our treatments are safe and affordable and kid and dog friendly. We use EPA approved time- tested and widely accepted synthetic products based on naturally occurring pyrethrins that are found in chrysanthemums as well as other all natural products and strategies to insure your yard is not a welcome environment for ticks and mosquitos. https://www.cdc.gov/ticks/tickbornediseases/overview.html

Tick & Mosquito Facts:
It may be less well known that the most deadly creature to humans is the mosquito with up to 750,000 deaths a year.

 It is also not well known that ticks can live past two years old and survive through the winter by hunkering down under leaf litter and other yard debris and can become active again when the temperatures are above freezing.

The CDC places RI among the top five states in the U.S. with the highest reported Lyme disease cases.

It has become the unfortunate reality that to avoid getting bit, we are avoiding time outdoors. We are avoiding grassy areas where ticks may be hiding and are running inside at dusk to prevent getting bit by a mosquito.

it all starts in your backyard...

protect your family and pets!
