The Delaware Department of Health observes that while summer is an especially active time for ticks and tick-borne diseases in Delaware, ticks can be around any time of year are becoming more prevalent. According to the CDC, for the past ten years the top five reported tick-borne diseases are Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. These arachnids 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.
You can view maps of cases of Lyme disease and get other great pieces of information from the Delaware Public Health site. 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.
Mosquitoes 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 Delaware as there are 57 species with plentiful water ways, marshes, ponds and woodlands. The mosquito-borne diseases present in Delaware are West Nile Virus, as well as Chikungunya Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus and most recently the Zika Virus. In order to ensure these insects are endangering and pestering your space is to prevent them or eliminate them if they become prevalent around your home. There is a great YouTube video from the state of Delaware giving tips to keep mosquitoes of your backyard, here. Implementing so of these may help to reduce mosquitoes in your yard.
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 mosquitoes 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 mosquitoes in your yard and enjoy a beautiful, safe lawn and garden.
