Safe for You, Your Family and Pets (Control from March - November)
April showers bring May flowers which are welcome after the winter months, but this is the time of the year when people should be on the lookout for another, less pleasurable harbinger of the season — the black-legged, or deer tick.
The bite from these hardy little parasites can transmit the bacterial infection that causes Lyme disease, as well as some other bacterial and viral infections. The deer tick is present year-round and when temperatures rise in the spring and summer, the ticks become more active and go in search of new hosts to feed on. These include deer, small rodents, such as the white-footed mouse and chipmunk, birds, dogs and, of course, humans.
