Ticks are tiny arachnid parasites that recognize the body heat of a potential host animal or human and latch on to feed on their blood. Statistics show that New York reports some of the highest numbers of Lyme disease cases in the United States. Caused by bacterium transmitted by the bite of infected deer ticks, Lyme disease is extremely dangerous to humans. In addition to Lyme disease, many other infections and conditions are caused by common types of ticks.
Application of tick control treatments to the land surrounding your Poughkeepsie residential and commercial property, especially those near wooded areas, are extremely beneficial in protecting from these diseases.
Tick Control Services in Poughkeepsie, New York
At J.P. McHale Pest Management, Inc., we use environmentally-sensitive tick extermination methods to reduce tick populations on properties all over Dutchess County.
These pesky parasites do not fly or jump— rather, they crawl onto plants or are transported by birds and other small animals, and many burrow into moist, shady areas. Because of this behavior, we suggest that Poughkeepsie home and business owners also minimize tick populations by clearing yard debris, using cedar mulch and trimming shrubbery to prevent shady spots where ticks thrive.
