Time is ticking – take action with Mosquito Joe!
Spring means snow and ice from winter are melting away, flowers are blooming and temperatures are starting to rise. The increasingly warm weather motivates us all to get outside and become more active. But while we’re enjoying the warm weather, so are ticks. Don’t worry! Our team at Mosquito Joe of Robbinsville-Jackson has prepared some tick tips so you can be informed about these pesky pests.
Tick season? Already?
When temperatures rise and consistently stay at 45 degrees, ticks reemerge for the season. Some scientists believe that due to a wet winter, the tick population in the northeast could be larger in 2019 than last year. Additionally, a warmer than normal winter positions ticks to emerge sooner than usual. Adult ticks are most active from March to mid-May and again from mid-August to November.
What’s the big deal?
Ticks are more than just nuisances who can latch on to you, your kids and pets and cause uncomfortable bites; they are real health concerns that can transmit vector-borne illnesses. Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever are two common illnesses that can be contracted by ticks.
What can you do?
There are several steps homeowners can take to ensure their property isn’t a breeding ground for ticks. Make sure your grass is trimmed and that bushes and hedges are manicured and well-kept. If you live in a particularly wooded region, create a wood chip and rock barrier at the edge of your yard and forested area. Remove any leaf litter or debris from your yard as ticks like to live in shaded areas. Additionally, discourage kids or pets from playing in brushy, wooded areas as they could pick up ticks and carry them home.
