All good and well that the emphasis has been placed on residential properties. The residential tick control hartville unit regularly responds to distress calls out of all neighborhoods attached. But what needs to be remembered is that the city has numerous commercial, retail, administrative and industrial businesses attached to it. Residential properties keep pets, a favorite victim of the greedy or bloodthirsty tick.
But little did people know is that ticks are attracted to dirt. For one thing, it is a perfect place to build a nest. But in lean times, it is not uncommon for ticks to be eating fragments of dirt, just like cockroaches, rats and mice would. So, having said that, commercial business owners need to be mindful that their properties could be prone to ticks as well. Needless to say that basic good housekeeping is a helpful stepping stone to prevent new or future infestations.
For the time being, let the local tick control unit mine sweep your back yard. And once the yard is clear of vermin, you can start your housekeeping program from scratch. Back to the residential neighbourhood, this time addressing the disgruntled property owner, particularly one who does not like pets. Certainly, those property owners who allow their pets to roam free, should be more careful.
Cats and dogs should not be out in the open streets anyhow. Neglected domestic pets could soon become pests to other neighbors as well. But before you blame the animals for the tick infestation, just bear this in mind. It could be that your housekeeping is not up to scratch. And if you’ve allowed your pets free reign of the neighbourhood, it could be that they’ve met some nasty looking creatures along the way.
