May 31, 2019
Ticks are no big deal, right? Aren't they just tiny little bugs that sometimes get on our pets? We wish that were the case. Boy do we wish it. But ticks are a serious concern for New Jersey Residents. They are a prime vector for the spread of some pretty serious diseases such as Lyme, RMSF, STARI, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, tularemia, and many more. If you find ticks invading your New Jersey property, it is definitely time to call Arrow Pest Control. While there are some things you can do to protect yourself from tick bites and steps that can be taken to reduce ticks in your yard, tick infestations are best left to the professionals. Let's take a look at the problem.
Things You Can Do About Ticks
It is important to know how to protect your family from ticks, and there are many ways to do it. You can keep your grass trimmed, pluck up weeds and extra vegetation, and keep overgrowth to a minimum. This will reduce the prime locations of tick habitation. You can address issues around your home that allow water to collect and give ticks a moist environment in your landscaping. Ticks require high humidity to survive. But the best way to prevent ticks in your yard is to keep birds and furry animals from coming onto your property. Put bird feeders away from your exterior walls and implement strategies that let wildlife know that your property is off limits. These steps, along with general tick prevention such as spraying repellent on your legs and feet before you go out in your yard and checking for ticks when you come back in, can reduce your exposure. But all of this is a lot of work. Who wants to be thinking about tick protection every time they go outside? Well, when you have routine treatments from Arrow Pest Control, you don't have to think about those ticks. This is one of the biggest benefits of tick control.
