Public Health Control Company In The United States Exclusively Serving Large Commercial Areas



Ivy Oaks is a public health control company specializing in large-scale control of area-wide pests. Unfortunately, many camps, parks, neighborhoods, and other large outdoor recreation areas lack a comprehensive strategy to address threats like ticks, mosquitoes, and poison ivy due to a lack of control options. Ivy Oaks has developed an efficient, rapid and reliable process to enhance the safety of large recreation areas. For us and our clients, solving this problem is personal, and we're dedicated to ensuring that everyone can enjoy outdoor recreation safely and without fear. We're proud to partner with Global Lyme Alliance in their mission to conquer Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.


The concept for Ivy Oaks originated from our founder's personal experience at summer camp. While at camp, he woke up one morning with a swollen face and blisters due to a severe reaction to poison ivy. This experience led him to become aware of the presence of poison ivy, ticks and similar threats in common areas. During college Isaiah worked at a summer camp and witnessed a camper contract Lyme disease. With the camp unable to find a large scale tick control service provider he felt compelled to take action.  

Ivy Oaks was formed in 2015.
