Deer and tick control may not be front-of-mind when thinking about the overall health of your landscape. For many, seeing deer in the neighborhood adds to the community’s beauty. Unfortunately, deer can cause irreparable damage to shrubs and plants, and with deer often come ticks. Wonderland Tree + Landscapes has developed a suite of treatments to deter deer and ticks from making a home on your property.
As deer get pushed out of their natural habitats due to urban sprawl, they may find their way into your yard. They can and will eat just about anything, and when they find tasty plants in your landscape, these creatures of habit will keep coming back.
Ticks have seen an increase in population growth on Long Island as a result of climate change and habitat destruction. Their favorite hiding spots include tall grass, shade and moisture. These pests can transmit diseases to humans and pets.
