GREENER SOLUTIONS OFFERS AN ORGANIC PRODUCT TO CONTROL TICK POPULATION
Lyme disease is an infection caused by a type of bacterium that is carried by deer ticks. An infected tick can transmit the bacterium to the humans and animals it bites. Untreated, the bacterium travels through the bloodstream, establishes itself in various body tissues, and can cause a number of symptoms…some of which are severe.
The prevalence of Lyme disease in New England is due to the presence of large numbers of the deer ticks’ preferred hosts (white-footed mice and deer) and their proximity to humans. An infected tick can then transmit infection the next time it feeds on another host (e.g., an unsuspecting human).
Deer tick larvae and nymphs often hide in shady, moist ground litter, but adults can often be found above the ground clinging to tall grass, brush and shrubs. They also inhabit lawns and gardens, especially at the edges of woodlands and around old stone walls where deer and white-footed mice, the ticks’ preferred hosts, thrive.
In tick-infested areas, the best precaution against Lyme disease is to avoid contact with soil, leaf litter and vegetation as much as possible. However, you should consider having a licensed lawn services professional from Greener Solutions apply a tick control product to the residential environment.
GREENER SOLUTIONS OFFERS AN ORGANIC PRODUCT TO CONTROL MOSQUITO POPULATION During the spring and summer months we want to enjoy our yards, patio’s, decks and pools. Mosquitoes can be annoying and carry disease which will put a damper on our outside activities. They prefer to hunker down in dense foliage, brush and thick vegetation during the day. They feed most actively at dawn and dusk, though they can bite any time.
As a homeowner you can help control the mosquito population in your yard by limiting any standing water in the yard such as bird baths, pet bowls, uncovered rain barrels, etc. Even outdoor furniture can have nooks that can collect water. This is where mosquitoes breed. Pet bowls, kiddie pools and bird baths simply refresh frequently and as necessary turn over furniture to release collected water.
When unbearable populations occur in your yard hire a professional to spray wood lines, heavily vegetated areas, wood piles, beds and lawns to suppress populations. Commonly used insecticidal and organic formulations can be used to treat common mosquito habitats. Time between treatments will be dependent on the property and weather conditions.

Tree damage is caused by the leaf eating caterpillars, which emerge from their eggs beginning in early spring and continuing through May. The gypsy moth preference for the leaves of deciduous hardwood trees such as maple, elm, and oak. They can also feed on apple, alder, birch, poplar and willow trees. When Gypsy Moths begin to mature and hard wood leaves become less available, they may move on to evergreens like pines and spruces. Most trees can survive some defoliation. Many can even survive one complete defoliation by the gypsy moth caterpillar. However, repeated defoliation can lead to significant decline of your trees or leave them vulnerable to other insects and disease. Greener Solution's has the ability to apply various common insecticides and organic products to suppress leaf chewing caterpillars. Save your trees! Insect control North of Boston & NH Seacoast in Rowley, MA.
Insects that feed on grass may go unnoticed until significant damage has occurred. This is the case with white grub worms, the larval stage of several types of beetles. Grubs live in the soil, where they feed on the roots. Once the roots are severed, the turf begins to show signs of stress and is loosened. This condition is compounded by the fact that animals such as raccoons and skunks feed on the white grub worms, resulting in widespread digging.
For these insects, a thorough knowledge of the life cycle is necessary to anticipate damage and achieve control. Greener Solutions can apply a systemic, preventative treatment to your lawn at the proper time to attack the white grub in their earliest feeding stages, before they cause damage. If white grub worms are discovered or the signs of stress are apparent, we can apply a faster-acting curative treatment, before further damage from either the grubs or their predators occurs.
Chinch bugs can be frequent pests of home lawns. Chinch bug populations frequently go unnoticed because of their small size and coloration, which blends in with turf grass and thatch. They are often associated with open, sunny areas during periods of hot, dry weather.
Chinch bugs have piercing, sucking mouth parts that remove fluids from grass blades, at the same time injecting a toxin that causes grass to yellow and eventually die. Damaged areas often merge into large areas of dead, brown grass that can often be mistaken for drought damage.
Chinch bug populations can be controlled by ensuring that your turf receives adequate amounts of water during the summer months, and by minimizing thatch buildup through aeration. Greener Solutions can treat your lawn with insecticide should symptoms appear.
