Deer TickOrange County is ranked #1 in New York for tick numbers and cases of Lyme disease.  HVPHC treats all border areas, wood piles, wood edges, planting beds, rock walls, and other brushy areas with a liquid treatment using pyrethrums or synthetic pyrethroids (based on the individual client preference). Treatments are generally done three (3) times a year (spring, summer and mid to late fall). These treatments will reduce the tick population on your property while giving you peace of mind while working or playing in your yard.
