Is Your Family Protected From Ticks?
Ticks are small, blood-sucking insects that have eight legs and are approximately .125 inches in size. They most commonly attach themselves to areas such as the groin, armpits, neck, and scalp. Although their bites are often painless and can go unnoticed for days or weeks, they transmit several serious diseases that can cause serious symptoms such as:
Memory loss and cognitive decline
Contrary to what you may have heard, ticks are active throughout the year. While your risk of getting bit by a tick decreases when you’re spending more time indoors, the potential consequences of contracting a disease from ticks are so severe that it’s always worth contacting a local pest control company to invest in tick control.
Where Do Ticks Live?
If your property is located around grassy, wooded areas, you likely have a high concentration of ticks in the area. However, ticks can take up residence anywhere. Some of the most common areas in which you’ll find ticks include:
Tall Grass: Ticks are often found in areas with dense vegetation. Tall grass, for instance, makes it easy for them to attach themselves to a passing organism. If your property is surrounded by tall grass, or if your yard is adorned with trees, bushes, and shrubs, you should be wary of ticks.
Leaf and Stick Piles: Your home is an ongoing project, and it may not be possible for you to complete all of your yard work in a single day. However, you should be aware that piles of leaves, sticks, and other organic materials are an open invitation to ticks. Always wear gloves, a long-sleeved shirt, and long pants to protect yourself from bites.
Play Structures and Treehouses: Jungle gyms and treehouses are often in cool, shaded areas, which is exactly what ticks look for in a habitat. If your children regularly play outdoors, you should have these structures sprayed by a tick control expert to decrease the risk of a bite.
Dog Runs: If your dog cools off in the shade, you need to be using a tick repellent throughout the year — not just during the summer months.
While these are some of the most common areas in which you’ll find ticks around your property, this list is not exhaustive. The best way to discover your property’s unique risk factors is to contact a tick control expert at Anchor Pest Services.
