New for 2021: More Tick Control Options
Spending time in your garden shouldn’t put you at risk for tick bites and tick-borne diseases. With Thermacell Tick Control Tubes, you can work with nature to reduce the tick population and create a tick-free bubble around your home. Tick Control Tubes are easy to use, environmentally friendly, and safe for people, pets and wildlife.
Our spray program will control the adult ticks on your property, and Tick Tubes will help control them from the early life when they are in search of their first blood meal on small rodents.

Here’s how it works:
Thermacell Tick Control Tubes are placed around the perimeter of your yard and in areas where mice will hide: woodpiles, overgrown zones, flowerbeds, or at the edge of forests. Each tube contains cotton treated with permethrin, which mice collect and use to line their nests. The pesticide kills the ticks on the mice so they never make it into your yard or home, but does not harm the mice.
Whether it's a round of golf with your family, a walk with your dog or spending time in the woods, nothing should prevent you from being outside, and that includes ticks and tick-borne diseases.
Introducing the TICKTOWEL mitt! By showering with a specially designed TICKTOWEL mitt after being outside, you can knock off any ticks that may have hitched a ride. Keep them in the car, the golf bag, the boat, or the trailer for easy access wherever you spend time outside this summer!
