At Mosquito Hunters™, our mosquito services have two main goals. We want to make your summers more enjoyable, and we want to keep your family protected against mosquito-borne disease. This focus on pest-borne illness is why we also offer a tick prevention service in Iowa City.
With our help, you can easily protect your yard against ticks and mosquitoes. That way, you’ll be protected against two of Iowa’s most dangerous summertime pests.
Why Invest in Tick Prevention in Iowa City?
When you take a look at a tick, it’s hard to imagine the problems this eight-legged parasite can cause. But despite their tiny size, ticks represent a significant health risk in Iowa City, as well as many other areas across the U.S.
To put things in perspective, the CDC reports around 50,000 cases of tick-borne disease each year. Around two-thirds of these cases are Lyme disease. Others include ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. All these illnesses can be fatal without treatment, and even with effective treatment, the symptoms can be severe.
Our tick prevention service offers a smart way to reduce your risk of contracting one of these conditions. Many tick bites occur at home, in areas like backyards and gardens. Our treatments work by stopping ticks before they access your property. We create a barrier around the perimeter of your yard that stops ticks dead in their tracks, significantly reducing tick activity. This way, you and your family will be at lower risk of suffering a tick bite when you’re spending time in your yard during summer.
Tick Control Made Easy in Iowa City With Mosquito Hunters
At Mosquito Hunters, we can provide tick and mosquito treatments as separate services. But we recommend combining these services when possible as part of a single treatment plan. Our Technicians can perform both treatments on each visit to your home, making this a more convenient and affordable choice.
Combining these two services will also keep your yard protected against two of the worst outdoor pests in Iowa City. That way, summer not only comes with a lower risk of pest-borne disease—it’s also a lot more fun!
