When ticks take over your yard, spending time outside with friends and family can be a health risk. Due to their ability to carry harmful diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease, ticks are dangerous to have around. To help you spot ticks and determine if you need to take action to get them under control, we’ll go through some tips below. And to effectively address infestations, we offer comprehensive tick yard treatments to our neighbors spanning the Sunset Hills, MO area.
Quick Tips for Spotting Tick Infestations
Let’s take a quick look at some simple steps you can take to identify tick infestations before their populations get out of hand:
Check Your Pets
Pets are common targets for ticks, so it’s essential to keep an eye on them and check their ears and fur for ticks regularly. This will help you keep them happier and healthier while also alerting you to the presence of ticks if they do show up in your yard.
Drag Your Yard
It’s also an option to drag your yard for ticks. Completing this step requires nothing but a light-colored towel, which you’ll drag around your yard. When dragging for ticks, be sure to target areas with tall grass and dense greenery, as these areas are where ticks can commonly be found if they’re present. Once you’re done, just take the towel over to a place that isn’t covered in grass and check it to see if you picked up any ticks.
Inspect Common Hiding Places
Simply looking around for ticks is another option for identifying potential infestations. However, because ticks prefer to hide in dark, covered areas, it’s helpful to bring a flashlight for the search.
