How to Prevent Deer Tick Infestations
Deer ticks, unlike some other ticks, aren’t usually found in homes because they cannot survive well indoors. If deer ticks are inside a home, it is because deer ticks were escorted indoors on your pets or on you and your loved ones. When returning from woodland walks, check yourself and your family for deer ticks. Deer ticks are very small and not easy to spot.
Dogs and cats who venture into tall grass or who spend a good deal of time outdoors, should be thoroughly checked for ticks on a regular basis, and should be protected against fleas and ticks with oral or topical prevention products available at retail stores and at your vet’s office. If you spot a tick on one of your pets, it’s likely that any other pets also have ticks. Addressing ticks is not something you should put off for later.
If you notice any kind of tick in your home, contact a pest control professional, such as Truly Nolen, and schedule a free pest inspection with our expert technicians.
