The Trick To Protecting Yourself From Dangerous Ticks
December 14, 2022 - Ticks
Ticks are a considerable problem. Five of the seven ticks known to bite humans and spread diseases, and they want to meet (and bite) you. Ticks are a known hazard when out in the woods, but residents are increasingly encountering ticks closer to home. Around and in the home, actually. Ticks are one of the pests that like to feed on humans, so if a tick is around you, it will probably be after you. Tick bites are bad enough as it is, but given the fact that they can spread diseases, a tick poses a much greater risk than a simple bite.

Dangerous Diseases Ticks Are Known To Spread

Of particular note, ticks are associated with alpha-gal allergies (AGS), which can potentially affect your quality of life for several years. Infected tick bites are an increasing phenomenon across the United States. Because of this, quality tick prevention is essential to keep your home safe and sound.

Five Helpful Tips To Protect Yourself From Tick Bites
Here are five easy tips to keep ticks under control around your home:
- Keep your yard mowed. Longer grass is attractive to ticks, which avoid shorter grass.
- Be conservative with ground cover. It’s handy, but also highly attractive to ticks.
- Tend to your houseplants. Keeping them trimmed discourages ticks.
- Minimize bushes/shrubs. They are beautiful, but also highly attractive to ticks.
- Be wary of wood piles. Ticks naturally gravitate to these, and then to you.
