2. Protect Your Pets And Yourself

You are probably already aware that ticks can be a threat to your pets, and it is likely that we don't have to tell you that your pets can bring ticks in from the outside. But what you might not know is that collars aren't an end-all solution for tick prevention, nor are collars right for every pet or every family. You should seek the assistance of a veterinarian to find the right solutions. Also consider these prevention tips for your pets.

Check for ticks. Why? Early detection of ticks can prevent the spread of disease to your pet, and also allow you to dispose of ticks before they go from your pet to you or someone else. Check the ears and between the toes of your pets. This is where ticks are most likely to attach. Run your fingers through your pet's hair or fur and feel for bumps on the skin.

Create a fenced-in play area. Why? If you have dogs that play outside, they can bring ticks in from your landscaping, tree line, and other potential tick habitats. By creating a play area, you contain your dog to a tick-restricted area, and you prevent wildlife from bringing ticks into this area.

3. Do More Of What You're Already Doing

There are many things you do as part of your home maintenance. Some of what you do can reduce ticks around your home. While not necessarily easy, we add these tips because you're probably already doing some of them to some extent.

Get your gutters cleaned. Why? A clogged gutter or broken gutter system can create oversaturation near your home and give ticks (and many other pests) an environment that is humid enough for them to survive and develop.

Trim landscape vegetation and remove unnecessary vegetation. Why? Wildlife prefers to explore landscaping that provides hiding places. Mice, rats, and other animals drop ticks as they go from hiding place to hiding place. Trimming and removing vegetation also allows for better airflow and dry topsoil, which is tick resistant.
