Ticks attack discretely and are capable of transmitting several diseases. The diseases

are often transmitted from animals that host ticks to humans and vice versa.

Because of these dangers, it is vitally important that such blood-sucking

arachnids are controlled and eliminated. Connecticut is home to various tick

species, but most specifically, the deer tick and the American dog tick. If you

live in the state, you can be certain that these ticks are preying on your family.


Knowledge is your best defense. Knowing a little about how ticks live can help

you take steps to protect yourself. All ticks undergo four stages in their

lifecycle. These stages are; egg, larvae, nymph, and adults. The eggs are laid by

adult females on grass after feeding and detaching from their hosts. The eggs

are then hatched into larvae that feed on rodents and other ground-dwelling

animals. As the larvae transform to nymphs, they move to feed on larger animals including pets. This carrying effect helps the ticks move long distances in closer to your home and yard. Eventually, the adults will inhabit residential and commercial property and thrive on humans and pets.


Many people are not aware that ticks are active all year round. Regardless of the season. Ticks are always nearby and will attack in any season potentially infecting you with the Lyme disease or worse. However, tick infestation skyrockets during the late spring and summer months. During these months, walking in wild areas or having your pets play in bushy grass will easily lead to tick bites. By fall, the population will then reduce and notably in winter. Even considering the reduction in population, control strategies should not be abandoned in Connecticut. 


There are several tick control methods. These include using tick repellants and cutting tall bushy grass and grassy meadows. The most effective method, however, is hiring tick control specialists. Such specialists will spray commercial-grade insecticides on your yard, your living spaces, and even commercial properties. Tick control will also eliminate disease-laden ticks on rodents and other ground-dwelling hosts. Ensuring that your home, pets, and family remain tick-free. Tick spraying and control should be done periodically in Connecticut. This means scheduled spraying throughout the year. Connecticut is considered the ground zero for Lyme disease, and therefore an every-30-day schedule is recommended to ensure your safety and that of your pets. A small preventative cost now can save you from the costly implications of the disease. When such services are required, TICKCONTROL, LLC is the best in Connecticut.
