May is the biggest months for ticks in Boise, Idaho. The hotter it gets, they start to become less active. It is important, however, to ensure you are protected most of the year as they can spread disease and don’t completely die in the winter months. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Tularemia and Tick Borne Relapsing Fever are the three main diseases found in Idaho. With the Wood Tick being the most common tick in the area, they rarely carry Lyme Disease, so that is the good news.
Ticks can feed on their host for hours or days without you knowing they are there. That’s why it’s important to do a tick check on you, your family, and your pets when enjoying the outdoors. You should also understand how to properly remove a tick so that if you find one that has attached to you or someone you love, you can remove it entirely and then seek medical treatment.
Reducing and eliminating ticks in your yard is an important step to keeping your family and pets safe. However, conventional yard treatments to eliminate ticks can include harmful chemicals that not only kill ticks but can be a danger to your family.
The warming temperatures are creating more of a mosquito problem for Boise residents. Even as each year varies in the amount of rainfall, mosquitoes are becoming more an issue each year. There are over 50 different types of mosquitoes in Ada county, but the main concern is the Culex. The Culex mosquito can carry West Nile Virus and we get confirmed cases of the disease every year. You can get more information on WNV in Ada county, here.
Reducing and eliminating mosquitoes from your home is an important step in helping to keep the mosquito population under control and to keep your family safe from these insects. Many conventional chemicals used in mosquito control can be hazardous. They can be unsafe to the person applying them and to your family. Clean Air Mosquito Control uses natural products that are both safe and effective in eliminating mosquitoes from your property.
Traditional pest control chemicals are certainly effective in killing the bugs they target (for a while), but they can also kill earth’s necessary pollinators such as birds and honey bees. In addition, many of these chemicals are highly toxic and can be very harmful to humans, especially children, and your pets.
Secondly, if you treat your lawn in the using traditional pest control chemicals, you may be fighting a losing battle by continuing to use the same treatments. Pests are incredibly resilient and eventually adapt to these chemicals. They build up a resistance, making them less effective over time. After a treatment, the survivors pass their newly morphed genetics on to their eggs, who will also resist the chemicals.
