Our Family Looks After Your Family

Welcome to Our Backyard

How It All Started.

Ticks and mosquitoes sure can be an annoyance as they buzz and crawl around our backyard. But they are more than a nuisance - they can also transmit illness. Personally, the one that has wreaked havoc in my home is Lyme disease. As we all know, Lyme disease is carried by the dreaded deer tick and my home was no exception. My daughter was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Both of my dogs were diagnosed with Lyme disease. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

These diagnoses came after implementing many of the recommended precautions, like long sleeves and bug spray, to prevent the bites in the first place! I was angry and I wanted my backyard back. So, I did what most moms do, I started to do some research about mosquito and tick control to reduce my family's and pets' risk of becoming infected.


I joined forces with industry experts. We trialed, tested, and reformulated. We learned so many people were struggling with protecting their families as well. At first, we just protected our own yard. And then our neighbors asked, so we helped them. And then friends asked, so we helped them. And then friends of friends... you get the picture. Out of these grassroots, Backyard Bug Busters was born.

So, for us, it's personal. Our lives were affected by Lyme Disease, so our solutions and business model come from the heart. Today, we continue to specialize in ONLY tick & mosquito control for our customers, although recently our son opened a "sister company" called Naturally Greener Lawns for eco-friendly lawn care solutions. Having a separate division enables us to continue our efforts at providing you the most comprehensive, efficient, and cost-effective tick & mosquito service in NJ. We are locally located in Northern New Jersey, so your backyard is our backyard as well!


Make the most of your yard this season without the annoyance and possible harmful effects of mosquitoes and ticks. Trust Backyard Bug Busters to take back your backyard!

Here's What Our Clients Say

This was our first season with Backyard Bug Busters, and we are beyond happy with their service. We have three young kids and three dogs - this was the first year we have had ZERO ticks! Mosquitos were so minimal I did not get eaten alive like usual, and they helped with the lantern flies, stink bugs, and box beetles. The service is exceptional, and they always leave a handwritten note thanking you. I recommend to everyone!

Kayleigh Kovonuk

I highly recommend Anne and her team of Backyard Bug Busters! They are extremely accommodating of my family and often offer to schedule our spraying around holidays or other events we may be hosting. We are able to enjoy our backyard with ZERO irritation from mosquitos, and we have not pulled one tick off our dog since using the service. Even my hard-to-please husband has commented on how happy he is that we decided to use Backyard Bug Busters for our property.

Liz Fusco

Living in a heavily wooded area we have had many tick and mosquitoes in our yard, on our dogs as well as ourselves. Since using Backyard Bug Busters for the past 3 years we have not seen any ticks and mosquitoes are at a minimum. Anne is extremely responsive and any employees spraying have been very professional.

Dawn Sadowski

Not only is the company great, their services WORK. I use their organic tick spray on my yard and have found only 1 tick on my dogs in 3 years. Highly recommended!!


We love back yard bug busters. We and several of our neighbors have used them for about 4 or 5 years now. My husband is a mosquito magnet and he can now enjoy the outdoors again. The family is very responsive and easy to work with. In spite of the treatments we still seeing plenty of bees and butterflies.

Jane Gibney

Called this morning to sign up after finding 4 ticks on my pup. They were super informative and responsive - they explained everything in detail and were able to get someone out today. They arrived promptly, were very nice in person and helpful. Can't recommend more!!

Jess Kleen

I told Anne (the owner) that my daughter and I got Lyme disease from ticks in our backyard, she had someone spray my yard that very same day! The world needs more businesses like this. Friendly, efficient, affordable. Will absolutely be using them again and recommending them to all my friends.

I am very impressed and happy with this company and service. They were very professional and customer focused. Anne was so friendly and helpful providing information on the process and products. She communicated with me before each treatment.

Robert, who completed the service on my property, explained what he was going to do and did a thorough job. He was helpful, professional and friendly.

We had excellent results and enjoyed our yard more than ever. It was wonderful to sit outside without mosquitos bothering us. Thanks for the outstanding service and results.
