Ticks are no pests to mess with. They carry diseases and are found in abundance throughout Connecticut. If you are in need of pest control services, contact Amtech today!
Connecticut is one of the worst states for ticks and the diseases they carry. The greater Danbury, New Milford, and Ridgefield areas provide great tick habitats with dense woods and a large deer population.
Lyme Disease is the most common tick-borne disease in North America.
Now there is a new disease carried by ticks called Powassan virus. Click here for information on the Powassan virus.
The reservoir for Lyme is small mammals, specifically rodents. Ticks, primarily the black-legged or deer tick, feed on deer and mice, and the ticks transfer the microbe to humans
To reduce the presence of all kinds of ticks in your yard, be sure to keep your grass cut short and your pets on veterinary-monitored tick preventatives
Do not encourage deer and other wildlife to travel through your yard, either.
Call Amtech for us to come out to inspect your yard for ticks and evidence of tick-infested urban wildlife. Our Tick Elimination service is a 4 to 5 treatment program running from April through October.
