Along with being a health hazard, a yard full of ticks can make it difficult to feel comfortable spending time outside. And if your yard is covered in common hiding places for ticks, you’ll likely be dealing with more tick activity than a yard without these characteristics. But what are common tick hotspots? Below, we’ll go through why it’s important to eliminate common tick hotspots and how our proven tick control helps Denver homeowners keep these harmful pests at bay.
Eliminating Tick Hotspots
Due to their small size, ticks can be tough to track down in your outdoor spaces. However, they do have several common hiding places that you can address to keep their numbers lower over time. Here are a few steps you can take to effectively eliminate the tick hotspots in your yard:
Mow Your Grass Regularly
Tall grass is one of the most common hiding places for ticks. Mowing your grass to a healthy height on a regular basis can help you avoid infestations of ticks and a wide range of other pests, helping you quickly feel more comfortable in your outdoor spaces instead of constantly being on the lookout for creepy crawlers.
Tidy Up Leaf Litter and Organic Material
Leaf litter, piles of fallen branches, and other organic clutter can provide shelter for ticks and the animals they typically feed on. To avoid infestations of rodents and other animals, and the ticks that feed on them, make sure you’re tidying up your home’s outdoor spaces on a consistent basis.
Remove Wood Piles
Wood piles can also provide shelter for ticks and the animals that carry them, making managing them a crucial part of keeping ticks at bay. Keeping wood in an alternate location can help you avoid the pests and animals that come with having wood piles around.
