Millstone Tick Control Does Double-Duty as Mosquito Control Too!

As we approach the end of summer, our thoughts drift from the insects that plague our backyards to the promise of the new school year and the cool weather that accompanies it. However, despite their reputation as warm-weather creatures, you need to stay vigilant about ticks and mosquitoes despite the reducing temperatures. Although fall is on the horizon, it is important to know that ticks and mosquitoes can remain active during autumn, meaning your outdoor living and health could still be at risk. As much as we’d like for these insects to vanish as soon as summer ends, our reality is different and more threatening than you might think.

Why Millstone tick control is important

Living in the Northeast means you are probably aware of the diseases ticks and mosquitoes can carry. Lyme disease, a tick-borne disease that 300,000 to 400,000 people contract every year, is known to cause long-term damage in chronic cases and can be easily confused with other common ailments. Symptoms of the disease often include fever, headaches, fatigue, and often a target-shaped rash. The rash isn’t always present, which understandably makes diagnosis difficult – all the symptoms resemble something your child might pick up at school! With this threat in mind, make sure to check that your loved ones have the necessary checkups to ensure their health isn’t tarnished by ticks.

Keep biters away with Millstone mosquito control

In addition to the ticks that threaten our time outdoors, mosquitoes take annoyance to the next level. Buzzing around and delivering painful, itchy bites, mosquitoes are the nemesis of the outdoor living season, but they are also capable of transmitting dangerous diseases. For example, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is a rare but devastating disease that has a roughly 30% mortality rate. While the risk of contracting EEE is low, what more motivation could you need to defend against mosquitoes?
