GreenSprays Develops Organic Pesticides

GreenSprays, founded by Orange resident Stacy Skoldberg, has developed organic lawn treatment products such as tick sprays, no-film natural deer sprays, organic fertilizer, compost tea and traditional products for weed and grub applications.  

Three years ago there weren't any organic and natural alternatives available to the commercial market. Skoldberg teamed up with Frank Clancy, a licensed arborist and ornamental turf applicator with 15 years experience, to find an alternative to traditional toxins. They spent those years on research and testing before launching the products and the company in June of this year. 

The company gives back 5% of their product purchase to the Wounded Warrior Project.  GreenSprays serves both residents and businesses.  If you're interested in finding more information about Greensprays, please check their website at www.greensprays.comor you may call them at 203-916-3666.  Follow them on Twitter @ greenspraysllc or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/greensprays.
