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:
- Joint/Muscle Aches
- Headache/Neck Stiffness
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.
