During summers in Livingston, there are two outdoor pests that families need to worry about: mosquitoes and ticks. While mosquitoes tend to be a lot more disruptive, both of these pests come with serious health risks. With our mosquito control and tick prevention services, Mosquito Hunters™ offers an easy way to keep both of these dangerous pests away from your yard.
Our tick prevention treatments offer a strong first line of defense against conditions like Lyme disease, babesiosis, and anaplasmosis. Each treatment creates a barrier around the edge of your property in Livingston that will stop ticks in their tracks when they attempt to enter your yard. That way, there’s a much lower risk of encountering a tick when you’re spending time in your backyard, your garden, or anywhere else on your property.
Why Invest in Tick Prevention in Livingston?
It’s easy to underestimate the dangers posed by ticks. With their tiny size, it’s hard to imagine that these eight-legged critters could result in a hospital visit—or worse. But thanks to the dangerous bacteria that many ticks carry, it only takes a single bite to contract a serious illness.
Over the past ten years, cases of tick-borne diseases have been rising across the country. Currently, ticks account for roughly 50,000 cases of serious illnesses each year, with two-thirds of those cases represented by Lyme disease. And while many of these illnesses are contracted in campgrounds or on nature trails, a large percentage occur at home.
If your yard contains grassy, bushy, or wooded areas—and most yards in Livingston do—your property’s at risk for tick activity. To avoid a tick bite while spending time outdoors, there are two ways to protect yourself. One option is to use tick repellent to keep ticks at bay. The second option is to keep ticks out of your yard in the first place.
Our tick prevention treatments in Livingston offer an easy way to accomplish this. We use an active ingredient derived from chrysanthemum flowers that is lethal to ticks but virtually undetectable for people and pets. We apply a product containing this ingredient to the vegetation at the edge of your property, creating a no-go zone for ticks. Over the following three weeks, ticks that attempt to breach this barrier will be neutralized by the treatment product.
Tick prevention from Mosquito Hunters is available throughout Livingston and in a number of neighboring areas. Our service area extends to Short Hills, Millburn, Parsippany, The Caldwells, Springfield, The Oranges, and Maplewood.
