Tick Prevention in Northbrook: Protecting Pets & Families
July 23, 2020
When families in Northbrook choose mosquito services from Mosquito Hunters™, we often recommend our tick prevention treatments as an add-on service. While ticks pose less of a nuisance than mosquitoes, they come with similar health risks. By combining mosquito and tick treatments, we offer an easy way to reduce your risk of mosquito-borne and tick-borne disease at the same time.
Unsure why tick prevention is so important for your yard in Northbrook? Each year, tick bites send thousands of Americans to the hospital with serious illness. What’s more, many of these tick bites are contracted at home, in areas like backyards and gardens.
Without protection against ticks, you and your family will be at increased risk of tick exposure and tick-borne disease.
Why Invest in Tick Prevention in Northbrook?
Ticks are nowhere near as noticeable or annoying as mosquitoes. That makes it easy for these tiny suckers to crawl under the radar.
As a homeowner, it’s important you understand the risk posed by ticks to pets and people. Here’s a quick look at why we consider tick prevention an important service for Northbrook area families:
- It only takes a single tick bite to contract a tick-borne illness. What’s more, many ticks secrete a chemical that numbs their victim’s skin before they bite it. As a result, many tick bites go completely undetected.
- Ticks will bite any warm-blooded animal, and they attach themselves to their hosts for days at a time. This makes it easy for pets like dogs and cats to bring ticks inside after spending time in your yard.
- Around 50,000 cases of tick-borne illness occur each year, and those numbers are on the rise. According to the CDC, the risk of contracting a tick-borne illness has risen steadily for more than a decade.
- The most common types of tick-borne diseases in Illinois include Lyme disease and anaplasmosis. These illnesses can result in severe and long-lasting symptoms, including life-threatening complications.
