Ticks are some of the most troublesome creatures in the world. They not only carry serious infectious diseases but are also incredibly hard to spot. It’s common for someone to have a tick on them without realizing it for some time, sometimes more than a few hours. Ticks can carry Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other illnesses that can cause chronic medical problems and demand long-term treatment. One of the best ways to address these problems is to prevent them from occurring in the first place with tick spraying in Ashburn.
Tick Shield offers an effective and reliable treatment that will kill ticks and deter them from entering your property. Ticks can invade your home and bite people and pets, causing health problems that can be painful and very expensive to treat. Instead of risking this, consider investing in tick spraying in Ashburn with Tick Shield.
Why Tick Spraying in Ashburn Is Important
Tick spraying in Ashburn is one of the most effective methods of controlling ticks and preventing them from biting you and your loved ones. Ticks can enter your property many ways. They may cling to clothes and hair after you spend time outdoors, especially in wooded and forested areas. Wildlife may also carry ticks onto your property. Ticks may hide in the fur of deer, racoons, dogs, and other animals that come into your yard, allowing the ticks to scurry off and find other people and pets to bite.
Ticks are parasitic arachnids that feed on blood to survive. When they bite a host, they typically burrow under the skin to a degree to suck up as much blood as they can. Ticks can be very difficult to remove once they do this, and sometimes a medical professional may need to surgically remove a burrowed tick. Tick spraying can help you prevent this issue.
Instead of taking a reactive approach to ticks around your home, tick spraying in Ashburn helps to keep the tick population on your property as low as possible, reducing the appearance of ticks and the chances they will bite. Ticks are hard to spot with the naked eye, and there are plenty of places they can hide around your home. Comprehensive protection for your whole property with tick spraying in Ashburn is the best defense.
Preventing Tick Bites and Understanding the Value of Tick Spraying in Ashburn
Tick Shield offers the most reliable tick spraying in Ashburn, and we can help remove the ticks from your property so you can enjoy the outdoors with peace of mind. However, there are a few additional steps you can take to reduce the chances of ticks appearing on your property and minimize your risk of suffering tick bites:
- If you spend time outside away from your home, try to wear light colored clothing. This will make it much easier to spot any ticks that land on you before they can make their way to your skin and bite.
- Try to wear long pants and long sleeves if weather permits if you plan to spend time in wooded areas. Ticks drop onto people from tree limbs and latch onto them as they pass by tall grass and plants. Minimizing your exposed areas of skin is another good way to prevent tick bites.
- Check animals and children thoroughly after playing outside. If you have a dog that likes to roll in the grass or children who enjoy climbing trees, make sure you check them, especially under the hair, after spending time outdoors.
These tips can help you reduce the chances of suffering tick bites on your property, and Tick Shield can offer a robust defense with tick spraying in Ashburn. Ticks are resistant to most conventional bug repellants, and it can be difficult to determine the best way to keep them away from you and your loved ones when you spend time outside. Tick Shield’s system offers the additional protection for your home you need to enjoy the outdoors with peace of mind.

Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted mosquitos and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitos and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
