Tick Removal in Lake Bluff, IL

BACKYARD TICK CONTROL

Tick activity has been steadily increasing over the last few years, especially in the Chicago suburban area. You’ve probably already seen a tick this season, while at a park or forest preserve. You may have even started to notice them in your own backyard in Lake Bluff. Many people aren’t aware that ticks reproduce and hibernate underground during the winter. Ticks aren’t especially picky though, they begin waking up when temperatures exceed 45 degrees. Generally speaking though, the longer the winter, the greater the tick population will be the following season. And we have had some long winters the past few years, which have given ticks extra time to increase in population. Winter isn’t the only factor in tick activity though. Your Lake Bluff yard could unknowingly be the perfect place for ticks to thrive. Ticks prefer shady areas, especially tall grass, and around fences or brick walls. Make sure to keep your lawn cut short and to throw out any clippings. Locate compost piles away from high traffic areas and separate them with gravel or woodchips. These will assist in eliminating tick’s favorite hiding places. But the most effective method for controlling tick populations is to have Mosquito Squad apply our tick exterminating barrier spray. Our barrier spray not only exterminates but also repels ticks from your Lake Bluff home.

PEST CONTROL PROFESSIONALS

At Mosquito Squad of Chicago, our primary solution for exterminating ticks is through regular application of our signature barrier sprays at your home in Lake Bluff, IL. Each spray remains effective for 14-21 days and not only exterminates, but also repels ticks. Additionally, our barrier sprays effectively protect against a number of other dangerous pests, like mosquitoes and fleas. We offer an all natural barrier spray option for minimal invasiveness to the environment. Every one of our barrier spray formulas are registered with, and approved by the EPA. We are recognized nationwide as experts in backyard pest control, and customer service professionals. Our top priority, at Mosquito Squad of Chicago, is your protection against Lyme and other tick borne diseases.

In conjunction with our barrier sprays, and when treating areas in which ticks are especially active, our specialists utilize “tick tubes”. Tick tubes are designed to employ mice, creatures which are most often the original sources of disease and one of the tick’s primary sources of food. The tick tubes are placed in strategic locations around your Lake Bluff property and contain an EPA approved insecticide treated cotton that is specifically targeted to eliminate ticks. After collecting the cotton, the mice return to their nest, spreading the insecticide. The insecticide coats the mice’s fur, killing any ticks that the mice later come in contact with.

TICKS ON DOGS: PROTECT YOUR PETS

Humans are not the sole target for ticks however, they also tend to prey upon family pets, specifically dogs. When your dog or other pet goes outdoors, a tick could easily latch onto them, catching a ride right through your front door and into your home. It is important to check your pets for ticks after being outside. You should always check for ticks on dogs when you get home from a walk in the park, or even around the neighborhood. If you have pets that enjoy the outdoors, it is especially important to have a tick control plan in place for your home in Lake Bluff, IL. If left to feed, ticks can infect your pets with many of the same diseases that humans are susceptible to. Lyme disease in dogs is not uncommon, but Heartworm is most dangerous when it comes to dogs. Don’t wait for a tick to infect your dog or endanger your home, contact Mosquito Squad of Chicago to setup your plan for season long protection.
