Organic Tick and Mosquito Control
Ticks carry many diseases that quickly transfer to humans and pets. While Lyme disease is the most common tick-associated infection, bacterial co-infections can complicate one’s Lyme disease. Managing ticks requires an integrated approach including reducing tick habitats and treatments targeted to areas of the landscape specifically where ticks thrive in property borders and wooded areas.
All About Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes may be responsible for more human deaths throughout history than almost any other organism. They’re a carrier for parasites, bacteria and viruses that are devastating to humans and pets.
Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected blacklegged (deer) tick and an estimated 427,000 cases occur each year in the United States. It’s therefore important to protect yourself when enjoying outdoor activities.
Simple Precautions Against Lyme Disease
- Wear protective clothing including long-sleeve shirt tucked in at the waist, long pants tucked into high socks, closed-toe shoes and a hat. Light-colored clothing will make ticks easier to spot.
- Avoid area where ticks thrive: wood piles, leaf litter, long grass, beach grass, bushy and shaded areas, stone walls and perimeters where the lawn meets the woods.
- Remove clothing upon entering the home. Toss into the dryer at high temperature for 10-15 minutes to kill live ticks. Putting them in the washer, however, will not.
- Examine yourself and your pets for ticks daily. Feel for bumps paying close attention to the back of knees, groin, armpits, in and behind the ears, belly button, and scalp. Check everywhere – ticks love to hide! Shower or bathe as soon as possible to wash away unattached ticks. If you find a tick, remove it quick! The longer it is attached, the more likely it will transmit a disease.
- Practice smart landscaping. Ticks live in moist shady area as opposed to dry, sunny area, consider separating tick-friendly habitats from your outdoor living area with gravel or wood chips.
