Effective Tick Management Solutions Customized for Your Yard, Your Needs, and Your Budget.

Ticks are Biting & It’s Time to Protect Your Whole Family!

Ticks are problematic pests that can transmit diseases from animals to people. For example, the Deer Tick is responsible for the spread of Lyme disease among humans ad pets. Research shows that most tick bites occur in people’s own yards.

Our “Tick” program helps to reduce tick populations and reduce exposure to ticks. We target the perimeter plantings around the house as well as the perimeter of the manicured areas of the yard. Generally four treatments are recommended, although ticks can be re-introduced into the area by animals and you may require supplemental treatments for best results.

Shrub Care Services

Your trees and shrubs represent a growing investment that’s worth protecting. Our program of scheduled inspections and treatment helps to keep all of your ornamentals healthy and in top growing condition.

Deer Control

Deer can be pesky problems in the home garden. They often munch and enjoy a gardener’s prized plants, damaging entire gardens in the process. If you have problems with deer, consider growing plants that are considered deer resistant. These plants tend to be bitter, spicy or have a strong aroma. Deer also avoid plants that are prickly and tough. In the Northeast, there are many plants to grow in your garden that are rarely or are seldom damaged by deer.
Shrub Man has the experience you can trust to carefully inspect and manage the health of your landscape trees and shrubs. Through each season of the year, we monitor and treat insect and disease activity on all plants covered by our program. Our program also provides precisely formulated fertilization for improved plant growth, bloom potential and general vigor.Read More
