The Florida Department of Health observes that while spring and summer are especially active times for ticks and tick-borne diseases in Florida, because of the temperate climate, they can thrive year-round. Ticks in Florida can carry diseases such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other spotted fever diseases. They hitch to your shoes and clothing while walking and to your pets when they’re outside. While you can see some ticks, others can be so small, like a speck of dust, they are easy to overlook —but are no less potentially harmful due to their size.
Some parts of Florida are more bothered by ticks than others. Clermont is mid-level during active tick season. This map can help you understand how prevalent ticks are in your area. Regardless of where you are, ticks can be a persistent pest in your lawn that can cause serious illness to you, your family or your pets.
Mosquitos aren’t just a nuisance, they’re potentially dangerous. They are the primary source of many very serious diseases around the world, including yellow fever, malaria, and dengue fever. In the U.S., they are often responsible for West Nile Virus and types of encephalitis.
Feeding on the blood of mammals, these predatory pests are a serious problem in Florida, and are often very difficult to get rid of once they have infested an area. The Florida Department of Health monitors mosquito-borne disease, but the best thing to do is prevent them or eliminate them if they become prevalent around your home.
Many of the chemicals used in traditional pest control are harmful to humans (especially children) pets, and pollinating bugs and insects that help keep our ecosystem healthy. These highly toxic chemicals can cause myriad problems, from skin burns to cancer and other illnesses.
Pests are very resilient. The jokes about cockroaches being here after the end of the world probably aren’t too far fetched. Why? Because bugs and insects are extremely adept at adapting to whatever we throw at them. Over time, traditional chemicals used to control ticks and mosquitos are less effective because the bugs that survive the treatments develop a resistance to them. Eventually, conventional treatments are ineffective along with the dangers they carry to pets and humans.
Natural pest control is better for the environment, the ecosystem, and for endangered pollinators like honey bees. They’re also better for the people who live and work around these areas: you and your family, your pets, and the people who work in the pest control industry.
You can reduce and eliminate dangerous ticks and mosquitos in your yard and enjoy a beautiful, safe lawn and garden.
While we focus on mosquitos and ticks, Clean Air Mosquito Control’s product’s main base is cedar wood and garlic. The oil in cedar is also a natural repellent for cockroaches, termites, beetles, fleas, silverfish, flies moths and ants. Garlic will also help keep bunnies away from your garden while repelling slugs, aphids, whiteflies, ticks, fleas, moles, Japanese beetles and more.
Natural can be both safe and effective. If you’re also looking for organic lawn care, visit Clean Air Lawn Care to learn more.
