Did you know that a bite from a black-legged tick can transmit Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that affects joints, the nervous system, and the heart? A recent 10-year study by the Centers for Disease Control shows that Massachusetts had more cases of Lyme disease than any state except Pennsylvania. Hundreds of thousands of people in the United States receive a Lyme disease diagnosis every year. South Shore now has a solution to the tick problem – residential tick control from Mosquito Shield.
Exercising Care Outdoors
Contrary to popular opinion, ticks do not die after the first frost. In fact, they can survive near freezing temperatures and then become highly active in the spring and summer months. As temperatures warm and make outdoor activities attractive, your exposure to areas where ticks hide increases. Ticks climb on shrubbery and ornamental vegetation to have access to hosts that pass by, including yourself and your pets. Your backyard can present the same opportunity to find ticks as going for a walk in the woods. Ticks prefer damp shady areas, tall grasses, and leafy bushes that commonly appear in residential landscapes.
