HOW TO CONTROL TICKS
Ticks are not just annoying. Some of these blood-sucking pests can be carriers of ailments like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tularemia. Since they can’t fly, they lie in wait to latch (and feed) on deer, pets, and people who wander by.
Here are some things you can do to help control ticks.
Form a barrier around your home.
Treat the perimeter of your house with Ortho® Home Defense® Insect Killer for Indoor & Perimeter2. It not only kills ticks, but also creates a bug barrier. No worries about mess, either: It’s stainless and odorless, and dries fast.
Kill the ticks in your yard.
Keep these insects from living in your lawn with Ortho® Home Defense® Insect Killer for Lawns Granules, which kills and protects against ticks that may carry Lyme disease. For the landscaping portions of your yard, use Ortho® Home Defense® Insect Killer for Lawn & Landscape Ready-to-Spray. Cutting back tall grasses and weeds will help, too.
Keep the deer away.
Do this and you’ll naturally keep their tick friends away, too. Use deer repellent, or consider putting up a fence if they won’t leave your yard alone.
Inspect yourself head to toe each night or after spending time in nature. If you find a tick, use tweezers to pull it carefully out of your skin without squishing it. Check your clothing for ticks, too.
Protect your pets.
