When Is It Time to Start Tick Control in Worcester, Massachusetts?

Posted by Mosquito Squad

If you’re like most people, you assume that ticks are a problem at all times. However, you may not know that the most dangerous ticks are currently out and about. The nymph deer tick (blacklegged tick) is most active right now. In fact, according to the Tick Encounter Resource, the deer tick season starts in early June, peaks in early July and ends in August. While this may sound like a small thing, it’s not. In fact, nymph deer ticks are most likely to transmit Lyme disease and they’re nearly impossible to detect. To put it into perspective, nymph deer ticks are about the size of a poppy seed and can even crawl through the fibers on your sock. If you want to ensure that your yard is tick-free all year long, call Mosquito Squad of Worcester today at (508) 388-5640!

So, if you’re unsure as to whether or not you’re allowing ticks to crawl all over your yard, you’re not alone. The nymph deer tick is almost impossible to notice once it’s on your skin or clothing. Most people infected with Lyme disease by a nymph deer tick never saw the actual tick that bit them. While you may be familiar with the common tick with its head embedded in the skin, that’s not the case with nymphs. Unless you’d prefer to hang a sign in your yard alerting people that it’s a tick-breeding ground, make the smart decision and call Mosquito Squad of Worcester. In the case of ticks, it’s always best to be proactive rather than reactive.
