Simple Tick Treatment Strategies for Your Backyard
Actually applying tick control treatments is a job that’s best left to the pros. However, there are several ways you can manage and treat your yard on your own to effectively keep tick numbers down throughout the year. Here’s a quick look at just a few of these quick and easy steps:
- Clearing Away Debris – Debris like leaf litter, rock piles, and collections of fallen branches can attract ticks and give them several places to hide. Keeping your yard tidy and clearing away any debris as it builds up from season to season is a simple way to keep tick populations under control and prevent infestations.
- Mowing Your Grass – The grass in your yard isn’t typically what ticks are on the lookout for when they’re searching for hiding places and breeding grounds. However, if you leave your grass unattended, and it grows too long, ticks won’t hesitate to take over and move in. Regularly mowing not only keeps your grass healthier over time, but also keeps ticks from hiding in it.
- Trimming Trees and Bushes – Like the grass in your yard, trees and bushes can attract ticks and provide them with shelter if they’re not maintained on a regular basis. By taking the time to prune trees and trim the other foliage on your property, you can reduce the number of hiding places ticks have to choose from and keep tick numbers lower.
