From ticks to fleas to mosquitoes, the average Michigander faces a wide variety of insect threats every year. Controlling these pests is often an uphill battle, especially if they are able to spread through your yard before you try to combat them. Once these pests have laid their eggs across your property, it’s incredibly difficult to stop them from reemerging even if you kill the current adult population. As a result, you’ll be treating your yard repeatedly all year long.

The Defender Program counters this problem by taking a proactive approach to exterior insect control. Instead of waiting for pests to make their presence known, we treat your yard with preventative control products at the beginning of the season, and then supplement these treatments throughout the year. This prevents mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects from infesting your yard in the first place, and kills the few that do make it in before they have a chance to become a nuisance. As a Defender Program customer, you can count on a clean, pest-free yard for all seasons.

The Defender Program is a cocktail of treatments for different types of insects, which together keep you free from all the major pests of Southeast Michigan. We apply these treatments systematically during the year so as to eliminate the different types of pests that arise at different intervals. The specific treatments are:

Mosquito Control- Beginning in the late spring, we apply a round of mosquito control products, killing the pests before they have a chance to spread and hatch. We then apply four additional treatments later in the year, the last of which comes in late fall. As a result, mosquitoes will not have enough time to establish themselves in large numbers, keeping you, your family, and your pets free from their bites and diseases.

Tick & Flea Elimination- In addition to five rounds of mosquito treatments, we apply tick and flea control products to your yard four times a year. This helps to keep your pets free from parasitic insects and the diseases that they spread.

Protection with Deluxe Perimeter Pest Control – As serious a problem as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes present, they are by no means the only bugs that Michiganders have to deal with. We thus go beyond treating your yard for these specific insects by applying a deluxe perimeter protection against other flying and crawling pests. This prevents such organisms from ever getting into your yard in the first place, so that you don’t have to worry about identifying and eliminating an unknown infestation. We apply five of these treatments throughout the year.

In preparing your yard for such a wide range of insect threats, our team is careful not to present any new risk to your health or to the environment. We rely on safe insect control products that kill pests effectively without damaging other living things. You can thus be confident that our services will be broadly beneficial for your wellbeing and that of the planet.

Besides safety, we guarantee results. The Defender Program is highly effective, but if you find yourself dealing with an insect infestation even after we administer it, we will travel to your house and eliminate those insects free of charge. You can thus be confident that one way or another, we’ll keep insects out of your yard.


Insect control is valuable for all Michiganders, regardless of their location, income, or yard size. In order to make it as accessible for them as possible, our team has long provided a myriad of affordable protection options for local homes. The Defender Program takes this commitment to affordability a step further by bundling multiple pest control steps into one package. By buying all these programs at once, you will be able to get each of them at a fraction of the price you’d pay if you ordered them individually.

Don’t think of pest control as a service you buy; consider it an investment in your home, health, and happiness. The cost of failing to take action on insects is far higher than the cost of treating your yard, even before you take into account our bundling discounts. If you allow mosquitoes to run wild around your home, their itchy bites will cause you to lose sleep and suffer more stress.

Worse yet, when those mosquitoes spread diseases, they may cause you to miss work or spend more on medical care. Likewise, if you let ticks and fleas roam your yard unopposed, you’ll have to spend more time and money taking care of your pets after they get bitten.

Whether you choose the Defender Program or any of our other tree care services or pest control options, our team is available to protect your family, pets, and yard affordably and effectively. For more information or to sign up for the Defender Program, contact us today.
