Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected blacklegged (deer) tick and an estimated 427,000 cases occur each year In the United States. It’s therefore important to protect yourself when enjoying outdoor activities.
Practicing good tick bite prevention habits is the best way to prevent Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses from occurring. Simply be aware of where you walk, the clothing you wear and how often you check for ticks.
Tick bite prevention is crucial for all members of your family, including pets. The risk to your dog of contracting Lyme or other tick-borne disease is on the rise. Research shows that cases of Lyme and other TBDs among dogs has increased 112% over the last five years (Companion Animal Parasite Council).
This increased risk to our pets means an increased risk to you and your family, as ticks target both ends of the leash. If your pet, particularly dogs, goes outdoors they are at an increased risk for getting a tick bite. Add to that, your pet can serve as a tick taxi and will unwittingly carry ticks inside your home, exposing you and your family to a tick bite.
Chris came by yesterday and toured the property. I am extremely impressed by his vast knowledge of all things trees! He is definitely a credit to the professionalism of your company.
“Service is Par none! We have used several tree care companies over the years and this one is the first one that does what they say they will do, when they say they will do it. They come on time, they techs and arborists are knowledgeable about the service as well as about my property and the reps are respectful and polite. We had an issue with a tree in our front yard recently and their arborist was very helpful in determining that the tree did not need to be removed. With treatment, it is budding nicely and we couldn’t be happier. They also have an A rating and are accredited by the BBB, which speaks for itself. Beware of other companies offering lower prices, you won’t get the same service or experience.”
I was very impressed with the response time to my inquiry. I got a call back within hours. My estimate was done within 2 business days, and the work was completed the day after I agreed to the service. I did not quote out the job to other contractors as my birch tree needed urgent treatment, but the price seemed reasonable so I am giving 5 stars. I was impressed that the arborist sent to quote the job knew in advance of the concerns I had expressed to the owner about the use of chemicals due to my dogs health, and planned my treatment accordingly. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend them and use them again myself
“The person arrived when promised and gave me a complete evaluation
of the trees on my property. He found one small tree that needed spraying and did so –
no charge. He then told me what I should do to bring back the tree to good health.
I would call them again without hesitation.”
