Securing Your Home From Ticks

When we come into our homes, we want them to be clean and bug free.  This includes ticks, ants, fleas and anything else that lives outside.  When we live amongst nature we need to understand that they have a right to live just as much as we do.  However, when they break the unspoken bond it is time to deal with residential tick control loveland.

Be aware

To help with any issues that you might be having the first thing that you need to do is be aware.  Be aware of your surroundings, be aware of what you do and be aware of what other people do.  When we have an issue in our homes and in our lives is when we really don’t pay attention to what it is that is going on.  Take some time and become aware of your surroundings.

General maintenance

The next thing that you want to do is general maintenance.  This means cutting your grass, picking up trash, spraying for nests and more.  When we work on general maintenance, we can spot problems that may be occurring and prevent issues from starting to begin with.

Groom your animals

Our animals are also susceptible to ticks and other pests.  Dogs and cats with their long hair, their positioning to the ground and the areas that they travel to on a daily basis, make them prime targets for these creatures.  If we take our time to groom our cats and dogs, make sure that their hair is short and if we take time to inspect them, the infestation can be reduced or removed.

Watch your time of day

You want to watch the time of day you venture out.  You want to be careful early in the morning and latera at night.  Ticks like cool weather and don’t care for direct sunlight.  With this in mind, you want to plan your day accordingly to lessen your exposure to ticks.
