How To Prevent Tick Bites

Posted on August 8th, 2019 by Knockout Pest

People tend to take advantage of the warm weather in the summertime. Ticks are also more prevalent in the great outdoors during this time of the year. Keep reading to learn what you can do to prevent tick bites.

What To Wear

Clothing can help shield your skin from tick bites. When you will be spending time outside, it is important to wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and closed-toed shoes. It is also a good idea to wear a repellent that contains 20% DEET.

Stay Away From Grassy Areas

It is no secret that ticks often hide in grassy areas. That is why it is so imperative to cut your grass and get rid of weeds on a regular basis. If you will be going on a hike outside of your property, walk in the middle of the trail to avoid areas of vegetation. 

Keep An Eye Out For Ticks

At the end of the day, it is your job to keep an eye out for ticks. Be sure to thoroughly inspect yourself for ticks once you are back inside your home. If you spot a tick on yourself or on another person, seek medical attention immediately. 

Ticks are small but dangerous; as they have the ability to spread diseases. When you are ready to invest in tick control services, trust Knockout Pest Control to get the job done right. We can knock out ticks and keep them down for the count.
