Are you making plans for this summer? If you’re like us, that’s a resounding yes. However, not all summer plans have to be planned, especially if you have a yard to enjoy this summer. One of life’s best and simplest pleasures is the ability to hang out in your outdoor living space, free of worries and enjoying the summer breeze. No matter the size, a yard is the pinnacle of convenience for those who like to spend lots of time outdoors. However, there are things in your own yard that have the potential to ruin not just your evening, but your summer as well. What are we talking about? The ticks that call our region home are a massive problem, both in their population numbers as well as in their ability to damage our health. Ticks are quite small, typically not surpassing the size of the head of a match, and their minuscule appearance is a huge problem. Whether you like it or not, ticks are found throughout our neck of the woods, as well as in our backyards, meaning every time we go outside there is a chance we encounter one of these arachnids.
Tick control is essential to defend against disease
Parasites of opportunity, ticks will wait until you are nearby to hitch a ride or climb up your leg, and once they bite you, they can stay attached for up to ten days. As if this feeding behavior wasn’t disturbing enough, ticks are also prolific spreaders of dangerous diseases. Lyme disease, for example, is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States, responsible for 300,000 to 400,000 infections every year. Such numbers are quite concerning considering the huge tick populations that call our region home. Just imagine, you’re relaxing on your deck or hosting guests, only to realize days later that a tick has been feeding on your blood for days, potentially infecting you with a potentially life-altering disease. Don’t take that risk. Professional tick control is the most effective method for defending against ticks out there.
