Best yard treatment for ticks | Tick Control Fairfield - Ticks are small parasites that feed on the blood of animals and humans. Their bites can transmit diseases to people and pets; these diseases can be quite dangerous. There are many different tick species found in North America, but the two most common types are deer ticks (black-legged ticks) and dog ticks (wood ticks).
Deer ticks carry Lyme disease which affects both dogs and humans; cases of Lyme disease in the United States have tripled in recent years with more than 30 states reporting incidents. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), around 300,000 people contract Lyme disease yearly in the US alone! Dog owners should be aware that their canine friends can also transfer this bacteria back into their home environment by bringing infected deer ticks into the house.
So what can you do to protect your dogs from this life-threatening disease?

The best way to combat ticks in your yard is to implement an integrated pest management strategy. IPM is an approach to controlling pests that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. It uses all available pest control methods, including biological controls such as lady beetles and parasitic wasps which feed on insect pests. IPM minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment by finding the most cost-effective way to solve pest problems while also taking advantage of natural enemies whenever possible.
