Tick Control Massachusetts: Keep Ticks out of Your Yard

tick control massachusetts

Ticks are a serious problem in Massachusetts. Lyme disease cases are rising and show no signs of slowing down. The best way to protect yourself, your family, and your pets from ticks is to keep them out of your yard in the first place. AllGreen Lawn Care has you covered. We are the experts in tick control in Massachusetts. We offer tick and pest control services that will keep ticks away from your lawn. In addition to a pest control service, there are some things you can do to keep ticks off your lawn.

 

Keep it clear.

Ticks like to hide in piles of brush and leaves. Take away their hiding spots by clearing away leaf piles or other debris on your lawn. Tall grass is another place for people and animals to pick up ticks. Mow your lawn regularly to keep ticks away from your family and pets.

It can be tricky to keep the edge of your property neat, especially if you live next to a wooded area. A perimeter of woodchips or gravel can keep ticks from traveling from wooded areas that you don’t maintain to your lawn.

 

Deter the critters.

Tick control in Massachusetts relies a lot on keeping the critters at bay. Ticks travel from one pace to another by hitching a ride on a host, usually animals. Keeping animals off your lawn will do a lot to keep the ticks away. If you have a woodpile in your yard, stack it neatly in a dry place. Small rodents like mice and shrews like to hang out anywhere that can protect them from the elements, and ticks like to hang out on them. There are plenty of reasons not to want rodents near your house, and ticks are high up on that list.

Deer are the animals we most often associate with carrying ticks—and they like to eat your plants. It takes more than a neatly stacked woodpile to keep deer away from your property. If you live in an area with a high deer population, putting up a fence is the most effective way to keep them away from your lawn.
