How To Creat a Tick-Safe Zone

 

  1. Remove leaf litter.

  2. Clear tall grasses and brush around homes and at the edge of lawns.

  3. Place a 3-ft wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas to restrict tick migration into recreational areas.

  4. Mow the lawn frequently.

  5. Stack wood neatly and in a dry area (discourages rodents).

  6. Keep playground equipment, decks, and patios away from yard edges and trees.

  7. Discourage unwelcome animals (such as deer, raccoons, and stray dogs) from entering your yard by constructing fences.

  8. Remove old furniture, mattresses, or trash from the yard that may give ticks a place to hide.

Over the course of many years, Omega Pest Management has developed a comprehensive tick program that really works! Here are a few tips on things you can do to protect your property.
