Ticks are one of the most feared insects that can inhabit your backyard.
Ticks Cause Lyme Disease
The deer tick is the known culprit for transmitting Lyme disease to humans. This is a tell-tale sign of a tick bite that may have infected the person.
Ticks Love Pets As Hosts
Just because your pets are treated for ticks and fleas doesn't prevent ticks from hopping on for a ride. You should treat your backyard to reduce the tick infestations.
A Tick Bite Is Nearly Painless
I know it doesn't look painless but one of the reasons ticks are so dangerous is that they can burrow under the skin without being detected. During summer months and in tick-infested areas, thoroughly search yourself and your pets for invading ticks.
