Tick Treatment Tips to Keep Your Yard Protected
Applying treatments to fight active tick populations is better left to the pros. However, there are some ways you can manage and maintain your property on your own to keep tick numbers down through the seasons. Here are a couple of these steps:
Preventing Mouse Infestations
Mice can quickly infiltrate your yard and bringing a long list of other issues with them. Among these issues are ticks. Mice generally take up residence in cluttered areas covered in rocks, leaves, sticks, and other debris, which is why clearing this debris off your property is a crucial part of keeping tick populations in check. Taking the time to keep your yard tidy can go a long way toward keeping out mice and the ticks they can bring into your yard.
Creating a Barrier Around Your Lawn
Areas covered in trees and dense foliage are the preferred breeding grounds for ticks. If your yard is surrounded by these areas, it’s crucial to establish barriers that separate them. Simple barriers made with wood chips or strips or gravel can be effective in deterring ticks from crossing over into your home’s outdoor spaces. Walls and fences can also help keep deer out, which can also bring ticks into your yard.
Keeping Living Areas Away From Dense Foliage
In addition to separating the wooded areas from the lawn with a wood chip or gravel barrier, it is advisable to move the habitable zones like playgrounds, fire pits, and grills further into the yard. It is tough for ticks to travel long distances on grass without drying out, so the more grass they have to travel over to reach you and your family, the better. A nine-foot barrier of open grass between the living areas and the foliage barrier is recommended.
