Finding buried treasure is exciting. Who doesn’t like the idea of following a map to find untold riches? If you had the chance to hunt down and dig up a chest full of gold, wouldn’t you do it? Now we know what you are thinking: what does buried treasure have to do with ticks? Well, finding ticks on our bodies can be a lot like treasure hunting. Only, instead of finding gold coins, you find a parasitic pest head deep in your skin! A rather unpleasant treasure hunt indeed. The good news is, there is a way to keep these blood-sucking pests out of your yard. It comes in the form of professional tick treatments.
Why Ticks Are Entering Their Most Active Period of the Year
Here's an interesting fact about ticks. Certain species, such as the deer tick, can survive through winter and be active if the ground temperature is above 45 degrees Fahrenheit. That being said, ticks tend to be more active when the weather is warmer. This is mainly due to breeding patterns, life cycles, and seasonal timing. We won’t bore you with the fine details. All you need to know is that ticks, right now, are a big problem.
Why Ticks Are So Hard To Treat Alone
Because of the way ticks invade homes and how elusive they can be once inside, DIY treatments can often be very difficult. In addition to this, many store-bought tick control products contain chemicals that, when used improperly, can be a danger to you, your family, and your pets. Treating ticks on your own just isn't worth the risk.
