Ticks are typically thought of as a simple outdoor nuisance; however, ask any vet or pediatrician and they’ll tell you they’re capable of being much more than that.

Ticks love our pets, especially our dogs, but they’re ultimately nondiscriminatory in what or who they’re willing to latch onto, as are the pathogens they may transmit through their bites. Both children and adults may contract a number of diseases from ticks, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Colorado tick fever, tularemia, and ehrlichiosis.

Tick Spraying Tips

 

According to the CDC, the best way to prevent the contraction of tick-borne diseases is by preventing tick bites in the first place. This is accomplished by keeping the parasites away from you and your family, away from your pets, and away from your yard and property.

The first two are tackled by EPA-registered insect repellents for people and tick prevention medication for pets. The last one is tackled by professionals like us.
