A yard full of ticks can make spending time outside uncomfortable at best. In addition to being annoying and unsettling, ticks can come with some serious health risks. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease are just a few of the many diseases these pests are capable of carrying, which is why having a system in place to fight ticks and prevent future infestations is essential. That’s where our professional tick control in Alpharetta comes in. But how are you supposed to know if there are ticks lingering around in your yard?
Common Tick Hotspots
Because of how small and invasive ticks can be, there’s a long list of areas where they can hide. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the many areas where you can often find ticks hanging around:
Tall grass provides plenty of cover and shade, making it an ideal hiding place for a long list of different pests. And because tall grass can also shelter small animals like rodents, it’s the perfect place for ticks. These animals typically bring ticks into their hiding places, where they’ll hang out, breed, and wait for other prey to pass by.
Collections of leaves are one of the most common hiding places for ticks. Especially during windy or stormy weather, leaves can easily blow around and collect into dense underbrush. The animals that carry ticks and serve as their food source frequent these areas, making them a hotspot for these pests.
Collections of Fallen Branches
Stormy or windy weather can also result in collections of fallen branches in your yard. If your yard is home to several trees, these groups of branches are more likely to be around. Due to the shelter and cover provided by collections of branches, they make your yard much more likely to be invaded by ticks.
