Many people assume that ticks die off in the winter season after the arrival of the first hard frost. While it would be great to get rid of these pests so easily, the fact is that winter does not bring an end to ticks. If you’re concerned about the presence of ticks in your yard, you can find peace of mind through tick treatments delivered by our expert Technicians during the warmer months of the year, so you won’t have to worry about them during the winter.
Understanding Why Tick Treatments Are Necessary
The effective prevention of tick-borne disease requires an understanding of tick behavior and spikes in activity. Here are a few things you should know about what happens to ticks in winter:
- Ticks can survive cold weather. While cold weather can kill ticks, it rarely does. Freezing temperatures of below 10 degrees F must be sustained for several days in a row to kill ticks that are not being kept warm by an animal host.
- Tick populations can explode just after winter. Female ticks that are able to latch onto an animal host and remain there until the end of winter will be ready to lay up to 3,000 eggs when the weather warms up.
