Our tick control services in Winter Haven, FL will focus on controlling, eliminating, and preventing ticks from taking up residence in your lawn and breeding.
Ticks are one of the most worrisome pests to many homeowners. Because of the ability of ticks to feed on many different animals, as well as their ability to carry and transmit Lyme disease, tick control services are essential to home and business owners, especially those who have any type of family members, customers, or clients who may be children, very old, or have a compromised immune system.
While a variety of ticks live in nature, the species ixodes scapularis, also known as the black-legged tick, is very common and widespread. Tick control services will focus on controlling, eliminating, and preventing this and other species of tick from taking up residence in your lawn and breeding. Of special importance is controlling the population of nymph I. scapularis, which is the stage most likely to transmit Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis to humans, according to the Center for Disease Control.
Tick control services can also look at your yard to see if your landscaping can provide safe harbor to ticks. Removing leaf litter and trash, erecting fences to keep wild animals out, mowing frequently, proper siting and storing of wood, and a 3-ft. barriers of wood chips or gravel between recreational areas and wooded areas can all help keep ticks out of your yard, landscaping, or green space.
