Prepping for Summer Tick and Mosquito Season
Summer is almost here, and we know you’re excited to spend some time outside in the warm weather! However, with pleasant weather comes an increase in annoying pests – specifically ticks and mosquitos. Therefore, now is the time to start prepping to protect your property before these bothersome insects take control. Read on to find out more about these pests, and why you need tick control and mosquito control now.
How to Get Rid of Ticks
Ticks may be small, but they can carry a variety of harmful diseases including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Bartonella, Ehrlichiosis, and Lyme Disease (one of the most severe tick-borne illnesses). That’s why it’s important to get a handle on a possible tick problem before it becomes severe.
Why Do You Have Mosquitoes in Your Yard
Mosquitos collect blood from humans to make their eggs – and often leave behind itchy, painful bumps on the skin. In addition to these bites, mosquitos can transmit various dangerous viruses, such as Zika, encephalitis, and West Nile. Because mosquito populations typically increase during the summer, it’s best to start taking precautions before warm weather comes along.
