When Can You Spray for Ticks in CT?Posted by Mosquito Squad
December 20, 2023
As a resident of Connecticut, you probably know how much of a nuisance ticks can be in the Northeast. To our great misfortune, tick populations are on the rise in our region, and there is no end in sight for when this growing threat subsides. For all we know, ticks could very well be overwhelmingly prevalent in the coming years. Despite their small size, ticks can pack a punch far greater than their minuscule appearance would indicate. Ticks are a major disease vector, consistently transferring dangerous microbes between their many victims. Just like mosquitoes, which spread diseases like Malaria, Yellow Fever, Zika virus, and others, ticks are just as capable of injecting unsuspecting passersby with life-altering bacterial diseases. Ticks are extremely unsanitary, to say the least, so the fact that they are so dangerous is unsurprising. With Lyme disease, Tularemia, Anaplasmosis, and other diseases potentially living in the ticks on your property, make sure you take appropriate defensive action.
Are you searching for “Tick control CT?”
If you are, then you’re already aware of the dangers ticks pose to your health. However, you’re also probably wondering “When can you mist for ticks in CT?”. Over the past few decades, temperatures in the U.S. and the globe have been on a consistent rise, which isn’t great news. As nice as mild winters in the Northeast are, we don’t experience any real benefits from warmer weather, while ticks flourish in these new conditions. Ticks and their frightening diseases are typically associated with warm, southern weather, but this is no longer the case. Just as much a threat in the south as in the north, ticks are expanding their range and reinforcing their populations as warmer winters allow more of them to survive. And, with warmer weather to aid them, ticks will emerge from their dormancy much earlier. All it takes for ticks to reemerge is when the weather rises to 45 degrees Fahrenheit or above and there is no snow on the ground. So, you can mist for ticks anytime the temperature has risen to 45 degrees or above consistently.
