TICK-BORNE DISEASE: A Hidden Danger

Disease-infected ticks can be a major health concern, as they can carry deadly diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The increase in cases of Lyme disease throughout the U.S. in recent years has increased the awareness of the dangers of tick borne disease. Our traditional barrier treatment eliminates mature ticks on contact. As you set up treatment, let our Mosquito Squad representatives know if any of the following apply to your family or property as it will help us to ensure your maximum protection:

Your yard is near the woods, fields or tall grasses.
Your yard has a wall fence.
You or someone in the family enjoys gardening.
Your children enjoy playing in or near fields, trees or tall grass.
You have a lot of trees or dense shrubbery on your property.
You have a brush, wood, leaf litter, or a compost pile on or near your yard.
You have pets that love being outside.

  • Lyme Disease
    Lyme disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in the United States, having been diagnosed in all states except Hawaii. There are nearly 30,000 cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control annually. If discovered early enough, Lyme disease responds well to a variety of antibiotics. Unfortunately, Lyme is a difficult disease to diagnose. The bull’s-eye rash is only one of the many symptoms of Lyme, which also includes fever, exhaustion and joint discomfort.
  • Ehrlichiosis
    Although it does affect humans, ehrlichiosis is most commonly found in deer and dogs. The bacteria kill white blood cells causing headaches, fatigue and body aches. Fortunately, ehrlichiosis is treated with antibiotics. With the Mosquito Squad, we want to make sure that your pets are protected from ticks all season.
