Get to Know Mosquitoes & Ticks
Mosquitoes feed on blood as part of their reproductive cycle. Because they can lay hundreds of eggs at a time, just a few insects can quickly turn into a massive infestation in no time at all. If you are struggling with mosquitoes in your yard, give us a call so that we can help you reclaim your yard from these pesky insects.
Ticks are actually arachnids, like spiders, but also feed on blood. They tend to prefer shrubs and tall grasses, which is why keeping your yard tidy can dramatically impact the amount of ticks in your yard. These pests can also hitch a ride on rodents or other animals, so it is important to protect your home from other pests to avoid ticks entering your home.
Both mosquitoes and ticks feed on human and animal blood. Because of this, these creatures can spread blood-borne illnesses such as malaria and Lyme disease. These diseases can be dangerous, which is why it is important to keep these insect populations under control to protect you and your loved ones.
How to Prevent Mosquito and Tick Infestations
To limit the number of mosquitoes and ticks around your yard, we recommend you take the following steps
- Get rid of standing water around your home
- Regularly tidy and trim your yard to limit attractive habitats
- Consider adding an outdoor fan to your patio
Though the suggestions listed above are minor, they can make a big difference in the attractiveness of your yard for mosquitoes and termites. However, even the most attentive upkeep can fail to keep these pests out of your yard.
