About Us

Learn. Connect. Protect.

The Tick and Mosquito Project has been helping people learn how to control mosquitoes and ticks since 2000.  We are independent.  Our content is developed through studying the latest findings and news associated with ticks and mosquitoes, and learning about and testing techniques for controlling them.  We work with entomologists and arachnologists to review our work and be sure we are representing the latest knowledge of mosquitoes, ticks, and how to control them.

Our mission is to help reduce damage caused by the world’s most dangerous creature, the mosquito, and an emerging public health threat, the tick.  We believe it is important to help people educate themselves on mosquitoes and ticks, share methods for controlling their populations and impacts, and ultimately protect our fellow humans against the serious effects of vector related diseases, not to mention make life a bit less annoying for those of us in tick and mosquito-prone areas.


20% of any earnings we might generate through affiliate arrangements are devoted to nonprofit and civic activity focused on controlling mosquito and tick populations and associated diseases.
