It's Tick season-how to deal with ticks.

People can tolerate a lot when it comes to pests. Bees and wasps, we can deal with. Ants are a pain, but they’re pretty easy to avoid. Spiders are scary but rarely dangerous. Ticks, though? Tick control is hard to manage and that’s why they’re one of the best arguments there is to move somewhere.

DEET works well for skin, while permethrin is good for going over clothes (it shouldn’t be on the skin), but neither of these guarantees deterring ticks. Obviously, wearing long pants can help somewhat, but ticks aren’t stationary. Once on a host, they’ll move around until they find a place they like. If you hire Jansen Pest Control, you would see a decrease in tick infestation immediately. Some treatment procedure involves the use of sprays and granules.

Once you’ve hiked through the forest, you should check yourself for ticks by running your hands across your skin.

Since ticks like to move and can crawl quite well for such small insects, check everywhere, not just areas that were exposed.
