Professional Tick Control

Professional Tick Spraying and Ornamental Tree and Shrub Care based in Woodbury, CT

My main focus at White Oak Horticultural Services is to safely rid your yard of ticks. While many other tick control companies have a similar motto, most will try to sell you as many applications as possible to eliminate your tick infestation. I will never offer an unnecessary tick treatment, and I will be the only applicator of product to your property, meaning you don't have to worry about somebody who isn't fully invested in the outcome of the treatment.

I started as a Tick Spraying business in 2009, and developed into a full service landscape care company, including tick control, ornamental tree and shrub maintenance and deer repellent. I am dedicated to protecting you and your loved ones from dangerous lyme disease carrying Blacklegged ticks, also known as deer ticks.  I use the safest and most effective products currently available and I time my applications so that the impact on other beneficial insects is minimal.

Along with tick spraying I specialize in identifying insect damage and diseases on ornamental trees and shrubs.  I offer fully customized, cost effective, spray programs to protect all of your ornamental landscape plantings. A lot of time and money goes into designing a beautiful landscape, I can protect that investment with deep root fertilization, insect and fungus control, and deer repellents.

I have over 10 years experience in the field as well. I was a branch manager for a major landscape supply company in Middlebury, CT.  I supplied and assisted 90% of the lawn care professionals in the greater Middlebury area with diagnosing lawn care issues, including disease, insect damage, and weed identification as well as recommending the best product to solve all their pest and disease issues.

Wilt Proofing and Deer Repellent

Winter seems to arrive earlier and earlier each year, which means less food for deer in their natural habitats. Plants like arborvitae are particularly susceptible to deer feeding in winter. Luckily my combination of deer repellent spray and wilt-proof last up to six months, protecting your landscape investment all winter long. Please contact me if you would like more information.
Winter also means evergreen plants start looking like this. Plants need moisture to survive but when the ground freezes they are unable to access it. The use of an anti-desiccant spray locks the leaves moisture within and protects the foliage from damaging winter winds. Late Fall is the best time to protect your evergreens, once the ground freezes it may be too late. Schedule a free consult today.

Ticks Love Snow Too

Fortunately the snow is finally melting, unfortunately that means thousands of hungry ticks are going to be searching for a meal. Snow provides a great insulator for ticks. It protects them from cold, drying winds and from many predators. Don't let them snack on you or your loved ones. Contact White Oak Horticultural Services at 203.217.6875 for safe and effective tick spraying solutions. 

Did you know ticks actively feed in Winter?

Although ticks become less active in these colder months of Winter, they are not completely dormant. Be sure to protect yourself and your loved ones by performing a tick check.

  • Check your clothing for ticks before re-entering your home. Ticks can be carried inside and find a host later on. If you do not spot any but are concerned because you were in a heavily wooded area, place your clothes in the dryer, 10 minutes on high heat will kill any tick. 
  • Shower soon after returning. Showering may rinse off any ticks that have not yet attached to feed. 
  • Check your entire body for any ticks you may have missed and run a comb through your hair. Use a full length mirror and pay special attention to armpits, behind your knees, around your ears, belly button, and between your legs. 
Staying alert this Winter can help prevent the transmission of Lyme Disease.

Experts Warn of a Dangerous Tick Season!

With the uncommonly warm winter CT just had, experts are expecting an increase in the number of ticks this spring, and more alarming, an increase in the number of ticks carrying Lyme's Disease. Check out this report from WTNH. Treating your property this Spring will significantly reduce the risk of picking a deer tick this year.
