When to Call a Pro
When we think about ticks, we primarily associate them with environments like public parks or far off hiking trails. However, our own backyards and homes can easily become tick habitats if proper precautions aren’t taken. These pests can make their way onto our yards by being carried over upon wandering wildlife like deer or mice, as well as migrating from nearby brush or foliage. Ticks can also be brought inside of our homes by latching onto our own bodies and our pets.
If they’re able to get inside a home, ticks can be found in a number of different places, such as dog beds or furniture. These pests may lay their eggs in places like curtains, baseboards and rugs. Discovering ticks or their eggs around the home could be a sign that you’re dealing with an infestation.
Personal precautions such as wearing insect repellent when spending time outdoors and safeguarding property by eliminating potential tick habitats are essential to keeping family, friends and pets tick-free and safe. However, if you discover an infestation inside your home, it is recommended to contact a licensed pest control professional who can provide the expertise and tools to effectively deal with the problem and prevent future issues.
