Deer ticks are also the primary carrier of Lyme disease and must be controlled on your property. If you want to eliminate these pests, call Scientific Plant Service for Baltimore tick control. Our licensed lawn care specialists will provide informed, personalized solutions that protect you and your loved ones from ticks. 

The Dangers of Ticks 

Ticks are serious concerns for anyone spending a lot of time outdoors. Ticks carry diseases and can make you feel sick in the short term and affect your health for years. A tick may have bitten you if you experience the following symptoms: 

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Joint/Muscle Aches
  • Headache/Neck Stiffness
  • Fatigue 

There are more specific symptoms of Lyme disease, including a bulls-eye rash, acute swelling of the knee or other joints, and Bells’ palsy. If caught early, antibiotics can treat most cases of Lyme disease. However, the infection can spread to the joints, heart, and nervous system if left untreated. Covering your skin outside and checking your skin for ticks after spending time outdoors can help you protect yourself, but professional treatments are essential for thorough protection.

Customized Tick Control Solutions for Your Baltimore Landscape

Because every property is different, Scientific Plant Service delivers custom Baltimore tick control solutions. We provide a variety of tick control treatments. One method of controlling deer tick populations involves the use of tick tubes. These tubes are cylinders, about the size of a paper towel tube, that contain nesting material treated with insecticides that kill the ticks. 

Additional Baltimore tick control methods include the use of insecticides and repellents to reduce ticks in the landscape. The use of deer repellant to reduce the appearance of deer in your landscape can also reduce the tick populations.

Use Our Deer Repellant Program to Prevent the Spread of Ticks 

While keeping deer from eating your plants is crucial, keeping them off your property altogether can help minimize the spread of deer ticks. Deer transfer the deer tick, which spreads Lyme disease, as they migrate. During the tick breeding seasons in spring and fall, the Scientific Plant Service staff may fog your property and wood lines where deer travel to keep them away. These will keep deer away from your property and ticks away from your household and pets. Our deer repellant program includes treatments throughout the year to keep deer from feeding on your landscape and damaging your plants. 

Worried About Other Pests? Control Mosquitos and Fleas with Scientific Plant Service 

If ticks aren’t your only problem, Scientific Plant Service also offers mosquito and flea management. These little bugs may wreak havoc on your family and pets, with devastating results. Mosquitoes and fleas can transmit various diseases and viruses to humans and animals and cause extreme discomfort. We use insecticides and organic repellant applications to manage mosquito populations throughout your landscape. Scientific Plant Service can provide safe and reliable solutions, whatever your pest control challenges are.
