Ascent Yard Care has exceeded my expectations. The team completed more work in two days then I could have in a month. The most positive thing about Ascent is their strong communication skills and following through with what they say they are going to do. Very trustworthy and professional. Thanks Ascent — our property looks great.

Pest Diagnosis and Treatment

Discolouration or holes in leaves are the first signs of a pest issue. Early detection is vital to the right treatment being deployed, wether that be getting rid of leaf mining beetles, tent caterpillars or wood boring beetles.

Certain invasive pests previously only seen in the United States are now becoming a problem on Vancouver Island and the lower mainland due to the warmer temperatures allowing the pests to move north.

We provide free pest diagnosis and implement the right treatment with eco-friendly solutions.
