A Note From Our Family To Yours
“Ticks are primarily inactive during freezing winter temperatures. However, March to mid-May is a highly active time for these pests. As soon as temperatures warm up and the days become longer, adult ticks start searching for a host for feeding. Tick nymphs begin to emerge in May and will also start looking for a host. Therefore, May is the most dangerous month in terms of ticks. Call us for spring tick and mosquito spraying today!“

Did you know?
There are four life stages of ticks: egg, six-legged larva, eight-legged nymph, and adult. Adult ticks will lay eggs in the spring around May. These eggs will lay dormant for 2 months and hatch in August. If temperatures are unfavorable, they will wait until next spring to hatch. Ticks must feed on blood at every stage of life to survive. Most ticks usually require a new host for every life stage, except for the brown tick, which prefers to feed on the same host during all life stages. The lifecycle of ixodes scapularis, the predominant Lyme disease carrier, generally lasts two years. These blacklegged ticks can feed from mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians; they need a new host for every stage of their life. The risk of Lyme disease is lowest from late December to the end of March.
