Ticks & Mosquitoes…All Types of Diseases


With the warm weather comes pool parties, cookouts, back-yard games, camping, and unfortunately ticks and mosquitoes. We all see the news about Lyme disease, Zika Virus, Powassan and all the other countless diseases that ticks and mosquitoes can transmit, so what do we do about it?

There of course are the many preventive measures you can take when going outside, but seriously, who is wearing pants in the summer never mind tucking them into your socks. What do we do, douse ourselves with repellant 5 times a day while we do our gardening? And are we really going to make sure we always have on light colored clothes to our backyard BBQ’s?

There are so many new species popping up in our area, so many new viruses and diseases being found in current and new species it is ridiculous. Birds carry theses ticks all over the country so much that there has been a reported case of Lyme in every US State.

Now I’m not saying these are not great helpful tips, but sometimes we just don’t think about it, or we go out back with our kids in the spontaneously. These are the times when we are at our most vulnerable. The best thing you can do is to eradicate the mosquito and ticks that transmit these pathogens.

Guardian Pest Control has a program called Yard Guard: We use a safe and effective product that is designed to eliminate both ticks and mosquitoes on contact. We will eliminate about 95% of the mosquitoes in your yard. We treat all shaded areas, like wood lines, fence lines, under decks, eaves, and overhangs of homes, as well as trees and shrubs. Mosquitoes and ticks do not hang out in sunny areas. We also will make recommendations to improve areas around the home to help prevent breeding such as clogged gutters, standing water areas and other clutter.

THIS is the way to enjoy your backyard all summer long without having to worry about putting on a gallon of repellent, wearing long pants tucked into your socks, long sleeved shirts, all of which must be lightly colored, and all the other preventive measures you read about.
