A yard full of ticks can quickly put a damper on summer fun. These arachnids aren’t only capable of latching onto your skin and delivering irritating bites. They’re also capable of carrying and transmitting Lyme Disease. We’ll go through some helpful tips below to help you identify these pests before their numbers get out of control. And to fend them off and prevent them from coming back, choose the professional tick yard treatments we offer to homeowners and businesses throughout the Smyrna, GA area.
Quick Tips for Spotting Tick Infestations
Let’s take a look at some of the most effective steps you can take to determine if ticks have made their way onto your property:
Check Your Pets
If there are ticks in your yard, your pets are at risk. Check your pets regularly for ticks when they come back inside. Along with alerting you to the presence of these dangerous pests, it will allow you to keep your furry family members protected.
Drag Your Yard
It’s also possible to drag your yard for ticks; you only need a light-colored towel. Just take your towel and drag it around your yard in areas with dense vegetation, tall grass, and tree cover. Once you’re satisfied with the space you’ve covered, take your towel over to your driveway or sidewalk and check it to see if you’ve picked up any ticks.
Inspect Common Hiding Places
Ticks hang out in shrubs, on retaining walls, near tree-covered areas, and in dense underbrush. Because they generally hide in these spots, it’s also possible to simply grab a flashlight and search for these pests to see if they’re around.
