The first task is to discover how ticks are getting on the property. Generally what we find are deer accessing the yard, so we try to figure out what we can do to prevent them from getting on the property. Ticks are generally found in the shady areas on the property, underneath trees and bushes where those animals may be resting from time to time. Those are the areas that need to be treated.
Ticks will not be inside a home unless they have fallen off their host, and it is rare that they would ever leave a host, so it’s usually outside that people come into contact with them. Lyme Disease is a huge issue as it relates to ticks, so I think it’s important for people to take steps to keep deer and other wildlife off their property.
