As always, after any time outdoors, check yourself, your children and your pets for ticks! These pests are active in the landscape whenever temperatures are above 32 degrees, especially at edges of woods and cultivated areas where leaves, sticks and debris tends to collect. We recommend a personal essential oil spray of cedar for a repellent.
Remember that now is the time to sign up for our Tick and Mosquito monthly spray program that will begin in early April and run through November. See this PBOG website link for details or contact Reese Crotteau (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
