If You’re Going to Be Outdoors This Summer, Stay Safe From Ticks Carrying Lyme Disease


Ticks are one of the most worrisome pests to watch for when you’re outside during summer. These pests can spread Lyme disease and other diseases to people and pets, so it’s important to avoid them. Learn more about ticks, including when to have a Brick NJ exterminator inspect your yard for these pests.

Tick-Borne Diseases

Ticks are known for spreading Lyme disease and other diseases, which can cause a bull’s-eye rash, soreness, fatigue, fever and other symptoms. These diseases can end up causing serious problems when they’re not treated. In severe cases, people can develop heart problems, vision problems and cognitive problems. Ticks spread these diseases when they bite people and feed on them. Reducing your risk of being bitten is the most effective way to prevent these diseases.

Tick Prevention

Covering your skin as much as possible when you’re outside in summer helps protect you from tick bites, although it can be uncomfortable in the heat. You should check yourself and your pets for ticks when you’re outdoors and remove these pests immediately. You should also have pest control experts inspect your yard for ticks, so you can have them eliminated. Keep in mind that mowing your lawn and removing weeds helps prevent ticks from coming into your yard.

If you need your yard inspected for ticks, please contact Allison Pest Control. We can send a Brick NJ exterminator to your home to check for ticks and treat your yard for them if needed.
