Ticks in The City

I had a woman who became a client contact me the other day.  She told me that a neighbor had spoken highly of our service.  In addition to the Asian Tiger mosquitoes in her yard, she had recently found two ticks in her swimming pool.   She lives in Downtown Frederick on Upper College Terrace.  This is a city neighborhood, not in the country.  I have previously spoken with somebody near her, who had reported a tick being on her.  They do not live in the country.  This is an illustration of how large the tick population is in Frederick, MD and surrounding areas.  They are in the city.  They can travel on any kind of animal or human and end up in back yards.  Many experts estimate that 70% of the people who get Lyme Disease contracted the disease in their own backyard or within 100 feet of their house.
