ohDEER, celebrating its 10th year in business, is the leader in all-natural deer, mosquito, and tick control.

Our all-natural applications and solutions are safe and highly effective, and do not contain toxins and harsh chemicals, as do many synthetic products.

We are based in Wayland, MA – and out of this location service the Metropolitan Boston area.

The ohDEER franchise network is rapidly growing;  there is one franchise each covering the geographic areas of Central Massachusetts; Southeastern Massachusetts; Cape Cod and the Islands; Eastern Long Island, NY; and Central New Jersey.

While a mild winter, such as we had in these parts this year, is favored by most people living here, it does support the conditions for ticks not only showing up sooner than they would following a particularly harsh and cold winter, but also showing up in larger numbers.

Ticks carry Lyme disease, which can make humans, pets, livestock, and wild animals sick.

Consider this excerpt from a story, that WTHN-News 8 TV (New Haven, CT. ) published on its website on March 7, about the tick problem that is upon its primary broadcast area (which means it is also a problem for every place where ohDEER does business):

“Anytime you have a tick that needs to be tested, it gets sent to the tick testing facility at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. Run by Dr. Molaei, the team tests ticks for Lyme and other diseases and the results this winter has been staggering!

“’Just yesterday we received greater than sixty ticks and we tested these ticks and nearly 50 percent of these ticks were infected by Lyme Disease agents. And that spells trouble for the upcoming season,’ said Dr. Goudarz Molaei.

“To put that into perspective, in past winters the tick testing lab typically saw only one or two ticks each day, resulting in only 30 percent testing positive for Lyme Disease. And that spells trouble for the upcoming season.”

Yes, for sure, we have ourselves a tick problem .

But the tick problem can be easily taken care of – in a safe and efficient manner.
