Tick Management

 As carriers of disease, ticks can be a real problem for both people and pets. Removing brush and trimming shrubs, as well as selective tree pruning to promote air circulation and sunlight, will encourage dry, sunny areas that ticks avoid. Removing wood piles that can harbor mice, which vector ticks, can also reduce tick populations on your property.

However, the most effective method of control is a barrier treatment. This treatment suppresses ticks where they are most likely to live – in wooded areas and at property borders.

If deer and mice are an issue on your property, you should also consider a program to repel these animals. Mice and deer remain the most likely carriers for ticks onto residential properties, so eliminating their presence can help keep ticks away.
