Tick Prevention in Eau Claire: The How and Why
March 19, 2019
Every summer, it’s a time-honored ritual for Wisconsinites to layer up on bug spray and other methods to ward off mosquitoes. But are you just as watchful for ticks? You may be surprised to learn that ticks cause more human disease than any insects in America, including mosquitoes. It’s one of the reasons that Mosquito Hunters™ provides comprehensive tick prevention services to homes, communities, and municipalities in Eau Claire, Hudson, New Richmond, Menomonie, and Chippewa Falls. Here’s what’s important for every homeowner to know about ticks.
Why Tick Prevention Matters For Eau Claire Area Homeowners
There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about ticks. To begin with, it’s important to know that ticks can be found in exterior spaces like gardens, parks, campgrounds, forests, and your own lawn. In Wisconsin, there are many common tick species, including the blacklegged tick (also known as deer ticks), the American dog tick, and the lone star tick. These ticks live and feed on humans, pets, and other mammals, spreading serious illnesses like Lyme disease. For tick prevention in Eau Claire, it’s important to know that ticks are extremely tiny (less than 1/8th of an inch), so it can be very hard to spot them. Even if they’re feeding on you, you might not even realize it!
If you or someone you know gets bitten by a tick, you should know that it can take as long as 30 days to notice the effects! It’s one of the reasons that diagnosing tick-related illnesses can be difficult. If you’re a homeowner in Eau Claire, getting professional tick prevention is one very effective way to protect your yard (as well as your family, pets, and yourself) against ticks and other small, pesky invaders.
