tick controlThough snow was still on the ground we started getting calls asking if there is anything we can do about tick control and eradication in eastern Connecticut. New England Tree Experts are licensed arborists, and we are fully qualified to kill ticks in their hiding places on your property without risking the health of your pets or your children. Early in the season the State of Connecticut warned about the high number of ticks we can expect to see this year. Connecticut had a mild winter and ticks sheltered under the snow rather that dying off. Add this to a high population of white-footed mice, carriers of these pests. It’s now May and we welcome the mild weather, step outside to clean up the yard and gardens, get the kids outdoors in the sunshine- and now you are the next potential meal for the hungry ticks lying in wait all over your yard. The bad news is that many more of theseĀ  creatures have been testing positive for the bacterium that causes Lyme Disease. State health officials will tell you to wear light colored clothing, pull socks up over your trousers and inspect your body, use an insect repellent, and remove them safely and quickly when they embed themselves in your skin. These measures may stop some ticks from making contact with your skin, but does nothing to kill them. The nymphal tick bodies are tinier than a freckle and get into your home unnoticed on your pets, your clothes, and on your child’s toys. Until they begin to fill up on your blood, you will neither feel them nor see them. We know you are concerned about the disease ticks carry and understand it is not possible to shut your pets and children indoors.

New England Tree Experts Kill Ticks Where They Hide…

At New England Tree Experts, we believe that the only good tick is a dead tick. The deer tick feeds on white tailed deer, the white footed mouse, chipmunks, squirrels and birds. They happily hitch a ride on their hosts until they drop onto you. They will lie in wait in a moist shady spot until you, your pet, or your child happen by. New England Tree Experts will help eliminate ticks on your property where they live, treating the periphery of your lawn, shrubs and stone walls. New England Tree Experts will set up a treatment schedule to keep ticks at bay so your family may enjoy the warm weather out of doors without worry. Call us for an estimate today at 860-558-3650.
