We all know that ticks can be dangerous. They often pass on diseases like Lyme disease and anaplasmosis. They can also be painful and difficult to remove. So what can you do to help prevent ticks?

Our first suggestion is to keep your outdoor space well-maintained and free of heavy, thick, overgrown vegetation where ticks like to hang out. Mow regularly. Rake up leaves and dispose of them far away from your lawn. Get rid of any old furniture or junk where ticks can hide. You may even consider installing a stone or wood chip barrier between your yard and the woods.

Our second suggestion is to implement a professional tick control program. Ask your local pest control expert for their recommendations based on the characteristics of your property. Top tools we like to utilize for tick control include the Tick Box Tick Control System and spray treatments. It’s important to continue the tick control program from early spring through late fall since ticks remain active as long as temperatures are above freezing.
