Tick Control for Your Yard: Why It’s Important
June 20, 2019
There is already a long list of things you need to do to keep your lawn healthy and a safe place to enjoy. If you don’t already have practices in place, it’s important to add tick control for your yard to your to-do list, especially when you live Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and other northeastern states where ticks are severe.
Why Tick Control for Your Yard Is Important
Prevents Tick Bites
This tiny pest is a parasite, satiating its hunger with your blood. While you likely won’t feel the initial bite, you’ll eventually find a blood-swollen tick on your body. It’s important to pull it out carefully, ensuring the head doesn’t get pulled off in the process.
Prevents the Spread of Disease
Ticks are known for spreading Lyme Disease. This scary disease is sometimes transferred through a tick bite and is known for the tell-tale bull’s eye rash that accompanies it, though not everyone will experience this symptom. In the first few weeks you might experience lethargy, headaches, and flu-like symptoms. If left untreated, you can end up with life-long symptoms of joint pain and neurologic concerns.
Protects Pets from Bites
Pets are also at risk of being bitten by ticks. Just like you, they can get Lyme disease, but unlike you, you likely won’t be able to see the obvious bull’s eye rash. You’ll need to keep an eye out for symptoms of your dog not feeling well, like lethargy and fever.
Prevents Ticks from Coming Inside
Ticks aren’t going to wander inside your home without an invite from you or your pet (it’s easy to hitch a ride on you, fur, and clothing). When inside, a tick can lay eggs that can cause an infestation in your home. You’re less likely to experience this threat if your yard is a safe zone.
