Protect Your Property; Call Greenix Pest Control Today
Ticks are small bugs that are often extremely difficult to locate with the naked eye. They have a knack for hiding in plants, long grasses, bushes, shrubs, and overgrown areas, where they are protected from predators and sheltered from sunlight. However, these tiny pests possess an extremely dangerous tendency: they carry some of the worst diseases humanity has ever had to suffer through. Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anaplasmosis, and plenty of other illnesses can be found in ticks throughout the New Jersey area, and while infections from tick bites are rare, they can potentially be deadly.

Things to Know About Ticks
Most people have heard of ticks, and most know that they are a real nuisance. Most people also associate ticks with where they are perhaps the biggest threat to our lives: with our pets. Ticks feed on blood, and they do so by essentially burying their entire head into the skin of their host to drain it out. This leaves their bodies vulnerable, so they typically look for a food source that also provides protection. The fur on a dog or cat proves to be perfect: they can easily burrow down in fur where they are difficult to spot, and they can feast almost infinitely so long as they aren’t seen. For our poor, furry family members, however, ticks are far from unnoticed, as they are typically extremely itchy and can cause some serious health issues.
Here are a few helpful tips for keeping ticks off of your property:
- Keep playsets, tables, and other outdoor furniture in sunny areas, as ticks will typically shy away from them due to heat and radiation
- Clear away debris like dead leaves, grass clippings, and mulch or compost, as they provide cover or shelter that ticks typically live in
- Mow your lawn. Long lawns also provide shelter. (As mentioned previously, throw away your grass clippings as well).
- Keep woodpiles away from your home. Ticks love to live in woodpiles, as they are sturdy and provide shelter. Ticks often use these woodpiles to find ways inside your home.
This isn’t to say ticks can’t and don’t bite humans. When given the opportunity, ticks will bite, and a single tick bite could be extremely dangerous, considering the diseases they can carry. These are just a few of the great reasons to start protecting your property with a comprehensive tick control plan from Greenix Pest Control. The best time to start a tick control plan is right away, however the peak of tick season is typically during summer, so we recommend beginning treatments during the springtime to try and eliminate ticks before they can lay eggs and increase their population.
