Preventing Ticks in your Long Island Yard

Below are some tips on tick prevention in your yard from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). In addition, the CDC and other government health agencies recommend a tick lawn treatment to reduce their populations. Suburban Exterminating is happy to provide a tick lawn treatment for our customers in Nassau and Suffolk counties. 

Preventing Ticks in your Long Island Yard 

Deer sightings are becoming more common across Long Island. When deer wander into your yard, ticks might be hitchhiking on their backs. Mice carry ticks, too. The following landscaping changes can discourage deer and mice from entering your property in the 1st place.

  • Keep your grass short and your leaves raked.
  • Clean up brush and cut down tall grass around your property.
  • Think about your patio and play areas. Are they in a sunny location? Is there a 3-ft wide wood chips or gravel area between lawns and wooded areas?
  • Keep your firewood dry and away from house, patio and play areas.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has identified over 10 Tickborne Diseases including Lyme disease. A pesticide application can greatly reduce the number of ticks in your yard.
