Ticks are some of the most dangerous pests that can creep into your yard. They latch onto your skin and can transmit dangerous diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease, so keeping them at bay is important. But before taking action against ticks, you need to determine if they’re around. Below, we’ll go through some quick tips to help spot ticks on your property. And to fight them off, choose the comprehensive tick yard treatments we offer to our neighbors all over the Richmond, VA area.
Quick Tips for Spotting Tick Infestations
Here’s a closer look at how to spot ticks in your home’s outdoor spaces:
Check Your Pets
If ticks are in your yard, they’ll likely target your pets at some point. Because of this, it’s important to regularly check your pets’ ears and fur for ticks. This can help you spot these pests before their numbers get out of hand and enables you to address any ticks that end up on your furry friends to keep them healthier and happier.
Drag Your Yard
Dragging your yard for ticks is another easy way to spot them. Just drag a light-colored towel or sheet around your yard, paying extra attention to areas covered in tall grass and dense greenery. Once you’re done, take the towel over to a place not covered in grass, like a driveway or a sidewalk, and check it for any ticks you may have picked up.
Inspect Common Hiding Places
It’s also possible to simply look around for ticks. Bring a flashlight, however, as these pests generally hang out in dark areas like bushes, shrubs, retaining walls, and areas with dense tree cover.
