Residential Tick Control Services
Throughout the past decade, the tick population has increased at an alarming rate, making tick control and prevention for your yard even more important. Ticks are commonly found in wooded or high-grass areas, but they can thrive in any backyards where there is grass, shrubbery or leaves on the ground. Ticks can also be transported into populated areas and neighborhoods by deer and rodents. For these reasons, backyard tick control is becoming more important than ever.
Tick Control for Your Yard
Ticks are parasites that feed on warm-blooded hosts including humans, dogs, cats, and deer. Without proper tick control and prevention services, these small pests can cause big problems.
There are few strategies to help you, your family, and pets:
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants- If you are in a wooded area or in long grass, wear clothes that cover your arms and legs, tuck in your shirt, and tuck your pants into your socks to prevent ticks from getting on your skin.
- Wear light-colored clothes- If your clothes are lighter, you will be able to see the ticks crawling on you before they reach the skin.
- Spray clothes and exposed skin with insect repellent- bug spray will help repel ticks before they bite!
- Talk to your vet about tick prevention- Don’t forget about man’s best friend! Your pets can also be impacted by ticks, so talk to your veterinarian about tick, flea, and heartworm prevention.
Even with these preventative measures, it’s highly important to take all precautions to get control of your property from tick colonies and infestations.
