Ticks: In Your Own Backyard

Ticks are small pests that can be found many places, even right in your own backyard. While they can’t jump or fly, they can climb and easily attach to a host that may just be passing by.

Tick populations boom in overgrown areas, particularly in woods, fields, and areas with tall grasses. These mites thrive where host bodies are common like deer, rodents, and other animals.

While they do prefer their ideal conditions, ticks will venture wherever they can find a host. They could inhabit yard refuse, live in trees nearby your home, or even in clumps of grass. The best way to approach tick safety is to be prepared for them!

The Dangers of Tick Infestation

Though small, about ¼ of an inch, ticks pose a serious health problem to their hosts. There are many different species, but the two main types are hard and soft ticks.

Both feed off warm-bodied hosts. The initial bite may not hurt, but these parasites carry dangerous diseases that can have an impact on both humans and their household pets.

The most common tick-contracted diseases are:

  • Lyme disease
  • Rocky Mountain spotted fever
  • Colorado tick fever
  • Tularemia
  • Ehrlichiosis

These diseases could be deadly if left untreated. Why take the risk? Take the steps to prevent ticks from getting near with our help.

Prevention and Protection

The best action to take against these tiny parasites is to prevention. Keep your yard clear of high brush, wood and leaf piles, and high grass. Be sure that your property is well-kept to make it less attractive for these pests.

With bigger tick problems, a more complex treatment can be performed on your lawn. These treatments can help you start enjoying your yard again. You don’t have to be afraid of your own backyard. Take back your property with proper flea and tick protection.
