ohDEER, launched in 2007, is the leader in all natural deer, mosquito, and tick control.
Our proprietary solutions are highly effective, and are safe for people, pets, and plants.
We are based in Wayland, MA.
Our corporate owned operation services a region that extends to Wenham on the north, Dedham on the south, Boston on the east, and Shrewsbury on the west. We also have a recently launched franchise business that is growing rapidly.
There are three ohDEER franchises – one that services Martha’s Vineyard, another Cape Cod, and the other southeastern Massachusetts.
With days getting warmer and longer, we are readying our anti mosquito and tick forces.
Deer keep us busy throughout the year.
Now, while we aren’t all that enthusiastic about anyone, or anything, practicing what ohDEER does in the places ohDEER works, we do have to admit we can stay plenty busy, and still not – at least presently – get to all the need for deer, mosquito, and tick control in these parts.
And, we definitely don’t begrudge the efforts of animals, who, as a course of their living, consume mosquitoes and ticks. Apart from humans and hunting, we remain non-commenting on creatures that might eat deer.
Today we take to Facebook and take a look at animals that eat ticks.
As we noted in a Thanksgiving post on our blog that went up her on November 25th,”… a turkey is a tick consuming machine – able to chow down 200 or so in a day….”
Almost any animal, such as a turkey, that eats small insects will eat ticks, even though a tick is not an insect – it is an arachnid.
Joining turkeys as among the most voracious tick eating animals are chickens, frogs, lizards, and opossums.
Guinea fowl (aka guinea hens) are native to Africa, but farmers in the U.S. have brought them here because the birds are all star tick eaters.
To all those animals out there looking for a tick on which to chow – ohDEER says get after, and be our guest.
