Our home sits on a lot and a half (about half-acre). Half of our lot is covered in thick forest. Once we tried to enter the forest, we quickly found out that it was filled... with poison ivy! After exhausting all efforts to find a company to help us we stumbled upon Austin. My husband and I were more than pleased with his professionalism and work ethic. He was prompt and completed the project as promised. He is extremely knowledgeable, so we learned our forest was also over-run with buckthorn. We booked him for this massive overhaul project, and he eradicated it as promised. Hard-working people like Austin are what makes booking work through small businesses awesome! Thank you, Austin!read more

We had Austin out for poison ivy control after I called and left an exasperated voicemail on a Sunday afternoon after having a poor experience with a different company. To my... surprise, he called me back on that same Sunday afternoon and scheduled something right then and there. He was attentive to answer ALLLL my questions, and considering we have poison ivy for the record books, I had several. When he came here, he took his time and made sure to get as much of this taken care of as humanly possible. We look forward to having him back next year! I cannot recommend him highly enough, especially after being able to compare his company with the one we had used more

Integrity! That best describes Austin which is so refreshing these days. He is a hard working, good for his word, goes out of his way for you, young man. Our property was... infested with poison ivy and mosquitos. Poison ivy had completely taken over. After my husband and I tried everything to get rid of it, and I came down with a severe case over Memorial Weekend, (which I yet have scars from) we called "Ditch, the Itch" and met our savior. Austin knew that with Covid, we wanted to celebrate Father's Day outdoors and the poison ivy would not be gone. He went out and purchased a1500 sq. ft. tarp and staked it into the backyard, so that our 8 year old twin grandsons would not come in contact with the poison ivy, which had not had time to die yet. He returned on Monday and removed it, good to his word. The only cost was paying half for the tarp which was very fair to us. Father's Day was a huge success! Regarding mosquitos, after his 1st application in early June, mosquitos were nearly gone. He punctually returns to respray which has led to a much more enjoyable pesty insect free summer. Austin has worked in a nursery and is very knowledgeable about plants and what works and what does not work. We highly recommend Austin. He is truly amazing!read more

This is the first time I've had a known poison ivy issue in the woodland area behind my house. Ditch the Itch was prompt, reasonably priced, and fit me in the next day. The... technician who came, Austin, was extremely knowledgable. He went around showing me where all of the poison ivy was, taught me how to identify it (I took pictures and notated them while he was explaining), and he pointed out some poisonous deadly nightshade plants too. He also voluntarily offered us some tips on keeping down our mosquito population which we really appreciated. While our area gets sprayed as part of our taxes, we still get plenty of them. We are excited to try his tips and see if we can get our numbers even lower. Thank you! We will definitely call you again!read more

I made a call to Ditch the Itch when I suspected poison ivy was present at one edge of my property. Austin responded promptly and came out to take a look. I liked the way... Austin communicated. He informed me about the appointment and also made it in time. Once on the property he went around, surveyed the property and explained in detail what he would do. He was also clear about the pricing. His knowledge of the chemicals is very detailed. Austin came back after 2 weeks and took care of all the areas and poison ivy that has sprouted. its now all gone. It was a pleasure to work with Austin. I would definitely recommend Ditch the more

Ditch The Itch - Poison Ivy and Mosquito Control Services came to my property and evaluated the work that needed to be done in a very professional manner. Austin killed all... my poison ivy and also treated two other hard to kill plants that were taking over the wooded area of my lot. He followed up several weeks later to see if an additional treatment was needed. It was. He arrived on time and retreated some poison ivy and other vegetation that wasn't present during the first application. If you have a poison ivy problem, Ditch The Itch - Poison Ivy and Mosquito Control Service is the company to call. I would recommend them to my friends and family. Austin is awesome and very knowledgeable about a wide variety of vegetation through 12 yrs. working in the nursery more

We live on 8+ acres, 5 of which are park-like and well maintained. We hired Austin this season to spray mosquitoes as well as inspect and remove Poison Ivy. We could not be... happier with the results from Austin’s work! Our yard is typically infested with mosquitoes throughout the summer but I am delighted to report after the second treatment we are mosquito FREE in our yard. Austin also found and eliminated several vines of Poison Ivy, most of which we didn’t know were there! The entire process was a pleasure, Austin really knows his stuff. I will be a customer for life! Thanks Ditch The Itch!read more

This is the first time I sought out a service for treating poison ivy but after two rough reactions in the last year, I thought it was time. Austin was incredibly responsive... and fit me in quickly. During the inspection, we walked the property and he helped me identify what plants were in fact poison ivy and which were deceivingly non-toxic look-a-likes (which was so helpful). Austin was incredibly knowledgeable, patient with questions and great to work with. He treated the problem areas and within a day I could see the poison ivy dying which was incredibly comforting and reassuring. Overall great experience!read more
