Your backyard is supposed to be a place to relax, unwind, and forget about the outside world. So when you’re out in your yard, you shouldn’t need to worry about catching a tick-borne illness, like ehrlichiosis or Lyme disease. That’s why the team at Mosquito Hunters™ recommends tick treatment services for families in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, and the rest of our service area.
Tick treatments are one of the best and easiest ways to reduce your risk of contracting a tick-borne disease. It only takes a single tick bite to catch these types of illnesses, and many tick bites occur at home in backyards, gardens, and similar areas. An effective tick treatment will prevent the vast majority of tick activity on your property, reducing the risk of tick bites in your yard.
Hiring a tick control company for the first time? Here’s a quick guide on how to find the right one.
What to Look for in a Tick Treatment Service
When it comes to ticks, it pays to be cautious. More than 50,000 cases of disease are traced to tick bites each year, and many of these cases have severe symptoms or long-term effects.
Because of this, we suggest finding a tick treatment service that will neutralize ticks, instead of just repelling them. This is the approach that we take at Mosquito Hunters. Our treatments create a defensive barrier around your yard, a strategy known as a barrier treatment. This barrier will then neutralize ticks when they attempt to breach the barrier and enter your yard.
We also suggest finding a company with treatments that last for weeks at a time, rather than hours or days. Tick season in Iowa City lasts from mid-spring through early autumn. If you want to keep your yard protected throughout tick season, it will be easier and more affordable to do so with longer-lasting treatments.
Finally, you’ll want to choose a company with convenient treatment plans. At Mosquito Hunters, we offer Season Pass packages to make tick control as easy and affordable as possible. These packages include a full season of treatments at a discounted rate, with custom treatment plans for every Client. In addition to tick control, your plan can also include mosquito control treatments, allowing you to protect your yard against both of these pests.
