When summer arrives in West Chester, there are two outdoor pests that families need to worry about: mosquitoes and ticks. The good news? With a little help from Mosquito Hunters™, it’s easy to protect your yard against mosquitoes and ticks at the same time. Our tick prevention services use the same active ingredient as our mosquito control treatments. That makes it easy for us to combine these services and perform both at the same time. By packaging mosquito control and tick control together, you can save on both of these services while protecting yourself and your family against a pair of dangerous pests.
Why Invest in Tick Prevention in West Chester?
Mosquitoes get a lot of attention from West Chester area families, and with good reason. These bloodthirsty insects not only spread disease. They also make outdoor spaces near-unusable during the warmer months.
Ticks aren’t as in-your-face as mosquitoes, so they tend to crawl under the radar. Yet from a health standpoint, ticks are nearly as dangerous as mosquitoes. In fact, tick-borne illnesses send roughly 50,000 Americans to the hospital each year.
All it takes is a single tick bite to contract one of these illnesses, and it’s easy for tick bites to happen at home. Ticks will live anywhere that’s grassy, bushy, or wooded, making most backyards a risk spot for tick exposure.
Unless you plan to cover yourself in tick repellent each time you go outside, it’s worth investing in tick prevention for your yard in West Chester. A preventative treatment will significantly reduce the number of ticks on your property, reducing the risk of a tick encounter.
Tick Control Made Easy With Mosquito Hunters
Our tick prevention treatments work by stopping ticks before they get the chance to penetrate your yard in West Chester. To accomplish this, we use something called a barrier treatment. A barrier treatment is applied around the edge of your yard, creating a barrier that’s lethal to ticks. Over the following weeks, any tick that comes into contact with the treatment product will be stopped dead in its tracks.
While powerful against ticks, our treatments are non-irritating to people and pets. In fact, the active ingredient used in these treatments can also be found in specialty shampoos used to treat lice in children and adults, or for preventing fleas and tick bites on dogs.
To achieve consistent protection, we recommend a new treatment every three weeks during tick season in West Chester. This is the same treatment schedule we recommend for mosquito control in West Chester. On a Season Pass plan, we can perform both treatments each time we visit your yard, keeping you protected throughout the warmer months.
Mosquito Hunters offers tick prevention throughout West Chester, as well as nearby communities like Fairfield, Mason, Hamilton, and Liberty Township.
