Tick Prevention in Kirkwood: Protecting Pets & Families
July 23, 2020
There’s no pest more hated than mosquitoes in Kirkwood, MO. But that doesn’t mean that mosquitoes are the only outdoor pest you need to worry about. While less in-your-face than mosquitoes, ticks pose similar health risks to people and pets. That’s why Mosquito Hunters™ offers a tick prevention program in addition to our mosquito control services.
Our tick treatments can help reduce your risk of tick-borne illness by reducing activity on your property. A single treatment will prevent ticks from entering your yard for the next three weeks. With routine treatments, we can maintain this protection for the entire tick season.
Best of all, our tick prevention services use the same active ingredient as our mosquito control treatments. We can easily—and affordably—provide both services at the same time. This gives families in Kirkwood a convenient way to protect themselves against two of Missouri’s most dangerous pests.
Why Invest in Tick Prevention in Kirkwood?
One of the main reasons to hire a mosquito control service is the health hazard they pose. In 2019, there were 90,000 cases of mosquito-borne illness—an all-time high in the U.S. By keeping mosquitoes out of your yard, you can reduce your risk of contracting these illnesses.
This is the same reason why we strongly recommend our tick prevention service for the Kirkwood area. Annually, the U.S. typically sees 50,000 cases of tick-borne disease. The most common types of tick-borne illnesses have the potential for severe or life-threatening complications. Worse yet, it only takes a single tick bite to get sick.
Tick treatments will prevent ticks from entering your yard in the first place. By preventing these pests from accessing your yard, we can significantly reduce your risk of contracting a tick-borne illness. This protection extends to anyone else who spends time in your yard, including your children and any four-legged family members.
Tick Control Made Easy in Kirkwood With Mosquito Hunters
With Mosquito Hunters, it’s easy to protect your yard against ticks. And it’s especially easy to prevent ticks and mosquitoes at the same time.
Our tick and mosquito treatments use the same active ingredient and similar preventative strategies. You can choose to treat your yard for only ticks or just mosquitoes. But if you combine these two treatments, you can enjoy both types of protection at a much more affordable rate than if you paid for each service separately.
