Tick Prevention

Prevent tick bites, remove ticks from your skin, and reduce tick populations around your home.

Ticks like to live in shady, moist areas, such as underbrush, leaf litter, woods, and tall grass. They have a two year life cycle and feed off hosts such as mice and deer. Nymphal ticks are extremely small, but can transmit diseases to humans.
