130 New Boston Street in Woburn, MA is a three-story building offering retail/office spaces. Plantscape Designs, Inc. provides office plant service and maintenance for the office building common areas. One of many important aspects of office plant maintenance is keeping the plants free from pests. Brian Guilfoyle, general manager at Plantscape Designs, Inc., is shown cleaning a Felix Robellini Palm to remove an infestation of spider mides, a pest almost to small to be seen, but whose activity can be visible in the tight webs that are formed under leaves and along stems. Keeping green plants clean is an important step in managing these and other pests.
“With the addition of these interior tropical live green plants instead of the dust-collecting artificial plastic plants, our office building’s main lobby and elevator lobbies have come alive and our tenants are happier.”
— Chris Worob, property manager at 130 New Boston Street, Woburn, MA
