Why Montgomery Residents Trust Modern For Defense Against Ticks

When it comes to yard pests, ticks are pretty high up on the list of ones you don’t want to run into. Walking through high grass becomes stressful, and thorough checks after every trip outdoors become tiring. No homeowner should have to worry about being bitten when spending time in their own yard, and for this reason, professional tick control has never been more important.

The Dangers Of Ticks

Although ticks are not destructive to objects, they can be extremely destructive to our health in the form of transmitting harmful diseases. They do this by feeding on an infected human or animal where they pick up a harmful disease. This disease can then be transmitted to any future hosts they feed on. Some common diseases ticks have been known to carry and transmit include.

  • Lyme Disease

  • Anaplasmosis

  • Babesiosis

  • Colorado Tick Fever

  • Ehrlichiosis

  • Heartland Virus

  • Bourbon Virus

Ticks become even more of a treat when they invade homes and bring these diseases with them. They most commonly do this by riding in on pets, rodents, or even on an unsuspecting human.

Why Ticks Are Difficult To Treat Alone

Although it is relatively easy to keep your pets tick-free, it is a much more difficult task to keep your yard and home tick-free. Ticks can be elusive and hard to treat, store-bought products can be dangerous if not used properly, and DIY methods have a habit of falling short. The worst feeling is trying to deal with ticks on your own, thinking you have succeeded, and finding ticks back on your property a week later.

How Montgomery Pet Owners Can Protect Their Furry Friends From Ticks

Contrary to popular belief, there’s no such thing as ‘tick season’ in Montgomery. Ticks can remain active throughout the year in our area, which means you and your furry friends may be at risk for bites. How can you reduce your pet’s risk of a tick bite? And are there ways to ensure their safety year-round? The best way to do this is to start with preventative measures. 

We suggest the following:

  • Mow tall grass near the sides of your home.
  • Reduce the amount of vegetation growing near doors and windows.
  • Treat your pets with flea and tick medication depending on their size or breed.
