Ticks are small, parasitic arachnids that feed on the blood of animals and humans. They are commonly found in grassy or wooded areas and can are a nuisance for pet owners and outdoor enthusiasts. However, ticks also carry a range of diseases that can be harmful to humans and pets, such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tick-borne encephalitis. Therefore, it’s essential to take steps to control ticks in and around your home. Make Green Oasis Outdoor Tick Control Tulsa part of your plan for $29 for the first treatment.
Risk of Tick-Borne Diseases
One of the most significant risks associated with ticks is their ability to transmit Lyme disease. This bacterial infection can cause a range of symptoms, including fever, fatigue, and a characteristic bull’s eye rash. If left untreated, Lyme disease can cause severe neurological and joint issues, and can even be fatal in rare cases. While Lyme disease is the most well-known tick-borne illness, it is far from the only one. Other tick-borne diseases include Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, and Powassan virus, among others. All of these illnesses have the potential to cause serious health issues.
Effective Tick Control Methods
Here are some effective tick control methods:
- Keep your yard clean: Ticks thrive in tall grass, leaf piles, and bushes, so keep your yard mowed and remove any debris. Regularly clean up after pets to reduce the risk of ticks entering your yard.
- Create a barrier: Create a barrier between your yard and any surrounding wooded areas or tall grass by placing a layer of wood chips or gravel around the perimeter.
- Use tick-repellent plants: Certain plants can repel ticks, such as lavender, eucalyptus, and marigolds. Plant these in your yard to help keep ticks away.
- Treat your pets: Use veterinarian recommended tick preventative treatments on your pets, such as tick collars or spot-on treatments. Regularly check your pets for ticks and remove any immediately.
- Use tick repellent on yourself: When spending time outdoors, use tick repellent on yourself and wear long sleeves and pants. Tuck pants into socks to create a barrier.
- Check yourself for ticks: After spending time outdoors, check yourself and your family for ticks. Showering within two hours of being outside can also help wash off any unattached ticks.
- Hire a professional: Be sure to have Green Oasis Outdoor evaluate your outdoor space and eliminate the ticks.
