Mainely Ticks Franchise Development offers franchisees the opportunity to protect people, pets and properties from ticks and tick-borne diseases with a personal, professional and effective tick management program centered around education and awareness. “Our job is not to simply treat to protect one’s property” states Bob Maurais, President of Mainely Ticks Franchise Development, “our job is to teach to better protect one’s community.”


Answer the Call of a Great Need

Mainely Ticks’ affiliate is currently servicing York and Cumberland counties in Maine, just two of 1,531 counties in the United States with an established deer tick population. The number of U.S. counties now considered to be of high-incidence for Lyme disease has increased by more than 300% in the northeastern states and by approximately 250% in the north-central states.

Why Get into the Tick Control Business?

  • The number of Lyme cases reported annually in the U.S. has increased nearly 25x since national surveillance began in 1982.
  • 95% of vector-borne diseases reported (within U.S. boundaries, excludes territories) in 2016 were tick-related
  • The CDC confirmed that the total number of cases likely yields over 300,000 probable cases each year – you probably know someone with a tick-borne illness.
  • 75% of all confirmed Lyme disease cases are contracted within 100 feet of the home
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF), Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis and other disease agents are either established or emerging in many parts of the United States.
  • While mosquitoes continue to be a concern, they account for merely 5% of vector-borne diseases.

Look at Mainely Ticks' Affiliate Numbers.

  • 1,135 customers contracted for 3,683 applications
  • The average customer (over 90% recurring year-to-year) contracted for 3.2 applications per year, with an average cost/treatment of $189
  • Average 18% increase in revenue in the last three years (2015-2017)
  • 2017 advertising budget was $7,400.00. World class educational materials and current customers are our best advocates!
