Ticks are some of the most dangerous pests that can invade your home’s outdoor spaces. These pests can carry a long list of harmful diseases, which they transmit through itchy, irritating bites. When you work with our team at Mosquito Hunters™, you’ll get comprehensive tick control treatments that protect Roswell residents from these harmful pests. As a preventative measure, our team will also help you find and address potential tick “hiding” spots on your property.
Common Tick Hideouts
There’s a long list of places where ticks can hide. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common tick hideouts we see in local outdoor spaces and why ticks are specifically attracted to these areas:
Collections of Fallen Leaves
Leaf litter, especially if it accumulates after stormy weather, gives ticks their ideal environment. Ticks love environments that are dark and damp, which is why neglecting piles of leaves in your yard is a significant risk factor for tick activity. Simply tidying up leaf litter on a regular basis is an easy way to make your yard less welcoming to invading tick populations.
Tall grass is another common hiding place for ticks. Patches of tall grass provide plenty of cover for ticks while also giving them access to food sources, as the small animals that ticks feed on often pass through tall grass or use it as a nest. And because small animals often frequent areas covered with tall grass, they’ll bring even more ticks into your yard.
Wood piles provide ticks with a nearly endless number of hiding places. Wood also has the ability to retain moisture, providing ticks with the dark, damp environment they prefer when they’re seeking shelter. By clearing wood piles and collections of fallen branches out of your yard, you can make your yard less welcoming to these pests.
