Deer Ticks are dangerous. Burrowing under the skin, Deer Ticks can cause serious harm to humans and pets. Far worse than the bad rash and the pain of removing the tick, these blood-sucking pests spread Lyme Disease, the deadly Powassan Virus and other serious illnesses.
Our suburbs are a hot spot for Lyme Disease cases according to the Center for Disease Control. Unfortunately, the problem is getting worst as more cases are reported each year. Now, there's a new threat, the Powassan Virus which is spread by infected ticks in as little as 15 minutes of the tick burrowing in the skin.
Giroud’s Tick Control programs targets ticks where they live. Deer Ticks like the shade and seek protection from the sun in ground level vegetation. Favorite hiding spots include high grasses, underbrush, shrubs and wooded areas. Here’s what we do to control this dangerous pest:
In addition to controlling ticks, Giroud’s treatment formula also provides excellent mosquito control. Ticks and Mosquitoes are attracted to many of the same dark, moist environments. Like ticks, mosquitoes are a dangerous pest and known for spreading many diseases including the Zitka and West Nile Viruses. It’s good to know that you can strike out two dangerous pests with one powerful 100% organic treatment!
