Tick-Safe Zones

 Keep a 3-4 foot border as a buffer between tick habitat and your yard.

Controlling Ticks on Your Property

 

Preventing tick bites is only one step in keeping you, your family and pets safe.

 

You also need to practice landscape management, keep out deer and mice that ticks live on, and, if risk is high, spray pesticides called acaricides on tick habitat.
