Beware of ticks this season

Although we are in the midst of a snowstorm today, spring really is right around the corner. Before you know it you’ll be firing up the BBQ and enjoying your yard. As that time comes closer, there are some things you need to know.

Here is a great article to read about what to expect this season – an increase in ticks perhaps. Many in the Northeast think that only deer carry these insects, in actuality the main carrier is mice.

This year we’re taking a more aggressive approach to combat this problem with our proposed property care programs. If you enjoy the outdoors, this is something you should think about. We don’t want you to be removing ticks from your pets and body everyday.

Make sure you educate yourself on early detection and see if your landscape or tree professional offers tick programs. If not, give us a call at (908) 204-9918 and our Arborist can develop a program specific for your property.
