Why Organic Treatments?

Organic treatments use natural, plant-based ingredients that are less harmful to the environment compared to synthetic chemical pesticides.

Safer for pets, children, and other non-target organisms that may come into contact with the treatments.

Reduced chemical exposure for you and your family.

These highly effective treatments can achieve up to 90% reduction in tick and mosquito populations when applied through a comprehensive barrier spray program.


The Problem With Ticks & Mosquitoes

The main concerns in northern New Jersey about ticks and mosquitoes are the diseases they can transmit.

  • 1

    Tick-Borne Diseases

    The most common tick-borne diseases in northern New Jersey are:

    Lyme Disease: This is the most prevalent tick-borne illness in the region, transmitted by the blacklegged (deer) tick. Symptoms can include a bulls-eye rash, fever, headaches, and joint/muscle pain.

    Anaplasmosis: Also transmitted by the blacklegged tick, anaplasmosis can cause fever, headache, chills, and muscle ache.

    Babesiosis: This disease, also spread by the blacklegged tick, can cause flu-like symptoms like fever, chills, and fatigue.

    Ehrlichiosis: The lone star tick is the primary vector for ehrlichiosis, which can lead to fever, headache, fatigue, and gastrointestinal symptoms.

    Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever: While less common, this disease transmitted by the American dog tick can cause fever, headache, rash, and in severe cases, neurological problems.

    Diseases Caused by Mosquitoes

    Mosquitoes cause several diseases in northern New Jersey are:

    West Nile Virus (WNV): This is the most commonly reported mosquito-borne disease in New Jersey. WNV can cause fever, headache, body aches, and in rare cases, severe neurological illness.

    Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE): EEE is also a concern in the region. It can lead to severe neurological symptoms like encephalitis, meningitis, and paralysis.

    Other mosquito-borne diseases that have been reported in northern New Jersey include Chikungunya, Dengue, Malaria, St. Louis encephalitis, Yellow Fever, and Zika Virus. However, these tend to be less common compared to WNV and EEE.

Tick & Mosquito Control FAQs

To reduce mosquito populations on your property, start by emptying or changing outdoor standing water at least weekly to stop mosquito breeding. Look for anywhere water may collect, such as flowerpots, pet food and water dishes, birdbaths, swimming pool covers, clogged rain gutters, plastic wading pools, and wheelbarrows. Some water collecting items may be difficult to spot, such as bottle caps and trash under bushes, homes, or around building exteriors. Refer to tips for Mosquito-Proofing your Yard for more information.

Treatments are timed to target different life stages of ticks and mosquitoes, with applications in spring, summer, and fall to provide season-long control.

Homeowners can choose from organic, natural-based treatments or conventional chemical options. Professionals like Aspen Tree offer customized programs with multiple applications per season.

Comprehensive treatment programs can achieve up to 90% reduction in tick and mosquito populations, though complete elimination is difficult as they can migrate from surrounding areas.

The key is taking a proactive, integrated approach to tick and mosquito management in northern New Jersey to protect against the diseases they can transmit.
