If you’re concerned about ticks in your yard, or your trees and plants aren’t looking so healthy, we can help.
Arborscape is one of the few Westchester landscapers with a dedicated outdoor insect control division.
Yes, we deal with the usual nuisance insects like ticks, gnats, no-see-ums and mosquitoes but we also have a full service “tree and plant health” division that focuses on disease prevention as well as tree disease treatment.
Need Tick Control For Your Yard?
Recently, there’s been a lot of awareness around tick borne illnesses such as Lyme Disease.
Westchester NY is no stranger to the Lyme Disease carrying “deer tick” – it may be tiny but it packs a wallop. If you don’t already know, Lyme Disease can be permanently debilitating.
We’ve all heard the horror stories about Lyme Disease. The deer tick is the carrier and we can help minimize you and your family’s exposure.
Spraying For Ticks — How we do It
Contrary to what most people think, when we spray for ticks, we don’t spray your lawn. That’s because your lawn isn’t where they breed.
We’ll spray along the fringe areas of your property, in the wooded areas, the planting and the garden beds.
Another misconception is the idea that deer ticks are only prevalent in areas that have deer. That’s not exactly correct. Actually, small rodents like mice also act as a vehicle for the deer tick to get around.
Our Natural Tick Control Option
Another option we’ve had great results with is a natural insecticide called Pyrethrum. It’s extracted from dried Chrysanthemum flower heads and it’s a very good tick repellent for your yard.
How it works:
Cardboard tubes stuffed with Pyrethrum coated cotton are strategically placed on your property. Small tick carrying animals, such as mice and birds, will use this cotton for their nests. The Pyrethrum will get on their fur and the ticks drop off without doing harm to the animal.
Outdoor Insect Control for Your Trees, Plants & Lawn
When left unchecked outdoor insects can contribute to the rapid decline of your favorite trees, landscape plantings and even your lawn.
Unhealthy trees and plants are an easy target for insects. That’s why we emphasize an ongoing tree and plant health program. It’s the only way to truly stay on top of the ever changing needs of your landscape.
We’re licensed and equipped to deal with a host of nasty outdoor pests. Here’s our short list of the usual suspects…
Tree and Plant Insects we Treat
This is just a small sample of common insects we treat all the time. The true list is quite extensive.
- Insect scale on trees and plants is one of the most popular pests we come across. We commonly see it on Azaleas, Hemlocks, White Pine and many other types of plants and trees.
- The hemlock wooly adelgid is notoriously lethal to trees. We deal with them a lot throughout the Westchester county region.
- Spider mites are another pest we see a lot of, attacking alberta spruce, azaleas and litany of landscaping plants in our area.
- Birch leaf miner
- Birch bronze borer
- Tent caterpillars
- Cooly spruce gall insect
