I know. I keep harping on ticks – but my rants are justified! All the lectures this year have been indicating an explosion of Lyme disease throughout New England. The disease has been spreading outward from Lyme Connecticut since 1975 and its most current areas of dramatically expanding growth are into New York, Southern NH and Southern Maine. I saw one map that put a bullseye in southern NH, right where a majority of our clients live. This means you!
The Tick Control Program has been very successful at reducing the pest population. You can’t kill every single tick but by reducing the population, you reduce your risk of exposure. We also try to treat the host animal, the mouse, by using Tick Tubes. The tubes contain a control product impregnated cotton ball that the mouse uses to make their nest. When they rub against the cotton the ticks are controlled.
Protect yourself through personal protective measures, as described in the last article, and active measures such as our Tick Control Program. Increase your family’s protection by signing on to our tick control program today. Estimates are free and quick!
