Keep your grass cut

The first thing that you will want to do is keep your grass cut.  Ticks like to live on tall grass and weeds.  If you don’t cut your grass or if you keep your yard unkempt then they will have the perfect breeding grounds, which is what none of us want.

Remove standing water

Another area that you want to avoid is the collection of standing water.  With standing water ticks will have a place to drink and lay their eggs.  If you have standing water or if you have places in your yard that water will accumulate then you want to have them addressed as quickly as you can and before tick season.

Spray your area

If you find that you do have tick issues have your area sprayed as quickly as possible.  When we have a professional come in and spray then they will start to kill off the ticks at the source.  The longer you wait the more likely your area will be too overgrown for the spray to work or their population will be too massive that it will be a lot of work to get them under control.

Watch your time outside

You want to watch your time outside.  There will be specific times of day when your tick population will be extremely active.  This is early in the morning or late at night.  Ticks like warm water but if the temperature is too hot, they will hide.  This is why you want to know when the time in your area is best to venture out in.
