To enhance the results of your Intensive Tick Treatment from Mosquito Squad of Louisville, there are a few things you can do to deter deer ticks from taking residency in your yard. Following the 6 C’s of Tick-Proofing is an easy way to remember what to do, so you can enjoy your backyard care-free.
1. Clear out
Clear out lawn debris to reduce your exposure to ticks. Ticks thrive in moist shady areas, making it vital to keep compost piles far away from high traffic areas. 2. Clean
Clean up leaf litter & grass clippings to avoid giving ticks a place to stay cool and moist. Mow your lawn regularly, keeping it nice and short. 3. Choose plants
Choosing plants for your landscape design that will not attract deer, who bring ticks into your yard, is a great way to limit the tick population in your yard. Check with your local nursery to choose the best deer repelling plants for your yard’s specific terrain. In addition, you can use fences to keep deer at bay. 4. Check hiding places
Check tick hiding places regularly. Ticks love to hide along the bases of fences, retaining walls and within wood piles. When you find them, eliminate them. 5. Care for family pets
Our furry friends are susceptible to tick-borne diseases too. They can also carry infected ticks into your home. Talk to your veterinarian about using tick prevention for your pets. As with all pest control products, follow the directions carefully. 6. Call the Pros
