Keep your loved ones and pets safer with proper tick control measures in your yard.
Many people get the creeps just thinking about ticks, and for good reason. These tiny arachnids attach themselves to animal hosts and burrow under the skin, feeding on blood and spreading diseases. They feed from all types of animals, including humans, mammals, birds, reptiles, and even amphibians. For humans, they can transmit a host of diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more.
While you may think of ticks as being a problem in wooded areas, there are certain things that can encourage them to inhabit your yard as well. They are often attracted to bushy areas, piles of leaves, and tall grass. This means that one natural tick control measure is to keep your yard mowed regularly and to remove leaf litter and other debris promptly. Once a tick infestation begins, they can quickly lay a lot of eggs, which can easily lead to a large infestation in your yard.
In the area near Carthage, North Carolina, the most common types of ticks include the American dog tick, the lone star tick, the black-legged tick, and the brown dog tick. All these ticks can carry unwanted diseases from host to host, so tick control is one of the most important things you can do to keep your loved ones and pets safe in your yard.
