Brentwood tick control is essential in the springtime but is recommended all year long.
Tick populations are on the rise! Brentwood, TN tick control is needed and very necessary this year more than ever. With Spring just starting to arrive, those disease-bearing arachnids are plentiful now that they are reemerging from their dormant winter season.
We all need to be aware that tick populations are on the rise here due to the warming climate and deforestation that is happening all around us in the Brentwood area.
Heavily treed forests in Tennessee cover 14 million acres of our State – and that’s 52 percent of our state’s land.
Here in Brentwood, TN, dangerous ticks lurk throughout our parks, trails, and greenways. These 14 parks welcome families – and their pets – with open arms. But that welcome may come at a terrible price for citizens and neighbors who are not tick aware. Be on the watch for ticks for areas in and surrounding our Brentwood TN parks.
