Westfield, MA Tick Prevention Services
Did you know that there are some 850 tick species of which some transmit diseases such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia, and Lyme Disease? Tick prevention is highly important for every home and family.
Unfortunately, you may not even know there are ticks and other parasites harboring in the woods, shrubbery, leaves, or high-grass areas of your yard. The tick population has increased rapidly across the U.S. in recent years and our country is now a hot spot for tick-borne diseases.
Ticks can be transported to your yard through feral cats, birds, deer, reptiles, rodents, and even domestic animals. Tick control is becoming a necessity for every homeowner.
A comprehensive tick prevention program from our lawn care specialists at New England Lawn Care Inc. will help you avoid the diseases and health problems associated with ticks. We specialize in pest control and tick prevention in Westfield, MA, and the surrounding communities.
Protecting Your Family From Ticks and Disease
The best method to avoid a tick infestation is with prevention. However, many homeowners don't give outdoor pest control a second thought. Ticks go through four life stages, which makes them difficult to eradicate once they are infesting your landscape.
While some treatment measures may kill adult ticks, the eggs, larva, and nymph stages are more difficult to treat. This is why it's important that you have the help of a professional tick control service. You cannot simply count on tick spray that you apply yourself.
With the help of the experts at New England Lawn Care Inc., your backyard will be a safe place for you and your family to enjoy.
Here are some things you can do to prevent bites:
- When you are in areas of your landscape with long grass or trees, wear long-sleeved shirts tucked into pants and tuck your pants into socks.
- Wearing light colored clothes helps you to spot ticks before they get to your skin.
- Treat your pets for ticks and fleas. Use veterinarian supplied products as they are stronger and are legitimate. There are fake products being sold online.
- Use insect repellent on your clothes and any exposed skin areas.
