The Many Benefits of Fall Tick Services◀ Back To Blog
October 15, 2018
Ticks are as fierce as ever this fall season. The cool weather isn’t slowing them down. In fact, it would seem they are seeking warmth from animals and humans even more. Just walking outdoors can put you at risk for receiving a tick bite. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about ticks or contracting Lyme disease, to be able to send your pets outside without having to check them over each time they come back in? With professional fall tick services, you can have peace of mind.
With the tick population being extremely high, DIY efforts alone have proven to be not very effective, and frustrating. Partnering with a professional pest control company can take the stress off your hands. With expert help, the tick population is sure to decrease and so can your worry. At Thomas Pest Control, we offer safe and effective tick control. Our technicians will identify areas of high tick activity on your property, recommend methods to eliminate conditions that help these ticks survive, treat your property with an organic product, and offer ongoing treatment services. The process ensures a huge decrease in the tick population. Thomas Pest Control also offers our Tick Box Tick Control System that can reduce tick populations by nearly 88% after the first year installed!
Ticks don’t get around too fast on their own. In fact, they aren’t able to jump or fly. These biting insects will crawl up a blade of grass or to the edge of a leaf to hang and wait for an animal or human to pass by. Latching on, they will then crawl their way to the skin for feeding. One of the most common hosts for ticks is mice. Mice then might run to your yard, or maybe even into your home if you have an infestation, and leave the ticks wherever they’ve traveled. The Tick Box (mentioned above) contains an attractive bait for these mice to lure them inside. As a mouse enters a box, a small applicator wick will apply a low-dose insecticide. The solution won’t harm the mouse but will treat and protect it from ticks for up to 40 days. It’s similar to how vets may treat dogs or cats for ticks. Our service technicians will inspect your property, identify hotspots, install the boxes, and provide ongoing maintenance.
In the Adirondack region, deer ticks are plentiful (a.k.a. blacklegged tick). These are the ticks responsible for carrying and spreading Lyme disease. Deer ticks are small and reddish-brown, and they enlarge during feeding. The number of people affected by Lyme disease is still on the rise and the tick population is out of control. DIY control methods for ticks can be frustrating and time-consuming, and the tick population usually needs more than DIY efforts to be controlled. If you are worried about ticks, don’t hesitate to contact Thomas Pest Services. It’s never too late to treat your yard with tick control. Protect you and your family today.
