Those who have been using our monthly Tick and Mosquito spray service using essential oil repellents have no doubt encountered fewer of these pests. Frost will end mosquito season, but ticks are very active once leaves fall on the ground and hold in moisture. Please let us know if you would like to extend your service through October and November or sign up anew by contacting Kimberly
Kuliesis, kimberly.kuliesis@pumpkinbrookorganicgardening.com for an estimate.  We urge you all to take precautions, wear repellents, check yourself, pets and children, and to limit outdoor activities after 6 pm.
