Heaven forbid that you should ever be bitten by a tick. Usually that is not bound to happen. It is usually the domesticated animals, a lot closer to ground level that these pests would target. It is much easier for them to piggyback onto the animals, and usually such animals are quite defenceless in trying to ward off the ticks. And they do bite. Sometimes they bite bad. This is also why it is important to beware of the dog’s bite too.
Not that you were deliberately asking for it, it’s just that accidents do happen. And while the dog may have only nipped at you, it’s bite could have been nasty had it been infected by a tick bite. This is because ticks could be carriers of diseases. Now, if your working yard is not the beneficiary of commercialised tick control in Waterford, you could be bitten in the backside, figuratively speaking. What also happens should you be caught napping.
There is a reason why a working yard could be overrun by ticks and other similar pests. If no animals are within range, they tend to thrive on dirt. Expect problems if you have not cleaned up your yard lately. This is probably going to be one of the first things the pest control unit is going to be recommending if this is you. Get the job done. And it might not be a bad idea to outsource the cleaning of your yard.
That way you know the job gets done properly. Now, these pest control technicians will still be coming around every now and then. They would like to inspect your premises, just to make sure that there has been no reoccurrence of these pests. It could happen still.
