Tick infestation, Westwood MA

April 28, 2015

 

wpid-kimg0115.jpgHere we are walking some dogs in Westwood. I found deer ticks on both pooches. Be sure to check yourself and your pets thoroughly after walks in the woods. Massachusetts is full of ticks this time of the year. They like to hide in bushes, waiting to catch a ride on you or your passing dog. Bug Busters can spray your yard with pet-safe (and children safe) solutions that will help mitigate this possible health risk issue. Ticks in the Westwood area can be active from April through November – so don’t wait all Bug Busters today for a free quote on what it will cost to protect your pets and family.

This Oak in Westwood is infested with winter moth larvae and canker worm. We sprayed it with an organic pesticide to minimize the damage and hopefully reduce next year’s numbers.  Also: If we have you in our system for next spring then we get to the application earlier in the damaging life stage of any pest or disease. Many Massachusetts towns have been dealing with this problem and homeowners see the holes after the damage has begun.
