Deer browsing generally occurs during spring when plants have fresh growth. Deer browsing can be seen as leaves or twigs having a rough, torn or shredded appearance. Hostas and arborvitaes are among their favorite vegetation to eat, although they will also pick at other trees and plants. Aside from destroying your plants and trees, deer can also carry Lyme carrying ticks. Deer repellent applications should be considered for this reason as well as tick spraying; we offer both services.
