Tick Control Services in Gambrills, MD on the green inc

Tick bites aren’t reserved for forest walks and camping adventures. These pests usually strike closer to home.

Fall is around the corner, but the high temperatures are still here. One of the worst parts of the warm weather is that insects are more active. Even though we don’t have to worry about cicadas, there are other unwanted guests you’ll have to repel, such as ticks. Tick bites aren’t reserved for forest walks and camping adventures. These pests usually strike closer to home. Luckily, On The Green, Inc offers excellent tick control services. Let’s go over why Gambrills residents appreciate our tick control services.

Why are Ticks Attracted to Your Yard?

Ticks thrive in warm, moist environments and prefer shade and hiding places. Tallgrass, ground cover, and shrubs are some of their favorite places to make their homes. Since ticks often find their way into people’s hair, some may assume they like to hide in trees. However, ticks prefer to keep close to the ground and find their way to your head after latching onto your body.

How to Protect Your Yard

Tick control is an essential component of your landscape maintenance plan. You may not be able to keep all ticks out of your yard, but you can decrease the risk of an infestation by taking the proper precautions:

  • Clear your yard: Ticks love to hide in fallen leaves, bushes, and outdoor furniture. Also, rodents and other pests carrying ticks often burrow in debris or forgotten lawn decor. Be sure to clean your yard of dead leaves, broken branches, and other trash to prevent ticks from building their nests on your property.
  • Mow frequently: Ticks like to hide in tall grass where they can grab onto a host as they walk by. Keeping your grass trimmed will keep them out of your grass (and hair!).
  • Build a natural barrier: It’s best to clear all shrubs, tall grasses, and trees around your property’s edge to prevent ticks from entering your lawn. Instead, line your yard with gravel or mulch. These hot and dry areas make it difficult for ticks to cross.

Call On The Green Inc for Tick Control Services

Given the current concern over diseases spread by these parasitic insects, Flea, Ant, and Tick Control is necessary. Our tick control services target ticks during their active periods. Ticks pose a significant risk to people and animals. They carry Lyme disease, and the most concerning problem with ticks is that you usually see them only after they bite someone.

Our tick control service offers a low-toxicity insecticide similar to flea and tick collars. However, it gets the pest at the source. The targeted applications will remove disease-carrying pests like ticks directly from their breeding grounds. The benefit of this service is that it stops the insects before they bite, not after!

"On The Green has changed the appearance of my house! My lawn is GREEN, full and no weeds, and they are always available whenever I have a question. My neighbors are always asking how my lawn looks so good! I highly recommend them!"

— Adam J. Itzel ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

On the Green was the only lawn service to properly diagnosis a fungus in our lawn. I had replaced the sod twice before on the suggestion of other companies. It always ended up dying and our yard always looked terrible in the front. Our lawn now looks thick, healthy and without weeds! It definitely is a standout in the neighborhood! Have been using On the Green with great success for about 3 years. Still happy with them! Highly recommend!!
