Dogs Get A Lot Of Ticks On Them When They Go Outside? Tips For Tick Control


If your dogs keep getting ticks on them each time they go outside, this can become difficult to deal with. If you or your family members often go outside, you could also come in with ticks on you. Fortunately, there are many ways you can control the ticks, two of which are listed below. 

Hire a Tree Trimming Service

The first place you should start is hiring a tree trimming service. They can remove habitats in your yard that ticks like to live and hide in. They can trim overgrown trees that ticks may hide in. This is also beneficial for your trees and will help keep them healthy. If you have a lot of overgrown bushes that are near your home, ticks can also hide there. A tree trimming service can trim the bushes for you, which will make them look much nicer as well. 

There are also tree-trimming services that provide tick control methods. They do this by spraying your yard with a pesticide yard spray. There are also some tree service companies that use organic products to kill ticks. No matter what they use, the tree trimming service will need to come back to your home more than one time in order to kill all the ticks. You still may get a tick now and then but the number you get will be greatly reduced. 

Hire a Pest Control Company

You can also hire a pest control company for tick control. They also have a pesticide yard spray they use in your yard, around the exterior of your home, etc. They will also spray around the perimeter of your yard. The pest control contractor will look for the tick nesting areas in your yard and spray there to kill the ticks in the nest. This will also kill ticks that enter the nest. 

Because you are seeing ticks on your dog, they may be getting inside your home as well. Because of this, the pest control company may suggest they spray inside your home. They use a nontoxic pesticide that is safe for you and your family. They spray along the baseboards, in moldings, in corners, on windowsills, and under cabinets.

A tree service company and a pest control company can ensure the ticks in your yard are controlled. You also need to make sure you give your dog a spot treatment or medication to kill ticks that may get on their body.

A Tree For Every Yard

Elm, ash, walnut, maple, apple — these are all gorgeous trees, but they all have their own preferences in terms of care. Maple trees, for example, need to be pruned later in the season once their sap has begun flowing. Elm trees should be pruned in winter when insects aren't around in order to protect them from the emerald ash borer. A good tree care company will treat each of your trees as individuals, customizing care to their own specific needs. Still, it's important that you, as the tree owner, understand those needs, too. Read the articles on your website, and you'll soon have a pretty good grasps on the basics of tree care.
