When we bought our house at #142 three years ago, Management & I had visions of summer evenings spent grilling on the back patio with cocktail in hand. We spent hours cleaning up the backyard. Got rid of some poison ivy. Even dropped $$$ at Season Fours in Lexington on patio furniture. The backyard was looking good…
Then the mosquitoes showed up. I really can’t tell you how much I hate mosquitoes. Like if I had to put together a list of things I hate, it would look like this:
Management found a company in Wayland called Oh Deer that specializes in mosquito & tick control. We had Kurt come out and he recommended cleaning up a brush pile and cutting the grass a bit shorter. Also getting rid of any standing water — where they like to lay eggs. Oh Deer then sprayed the backyard with a natural repellent that contains no pesticides or chemicals (kid safe). The spray is good for up to 1 month and won’t wash off in the rain. Cost is $75 per treatment and we have them spray 4/5 times each summer.
