Ticks in Louisville are a threat year-round, but are most prominent in the warmer months. The most common ticks you will find are the deer tick, American dog tick, and the lone star tick. All can carry disease. The number of tick-borne illness cases has increased over the years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Rocky Mountain Fever, Lyme disease and other less common tick-borne sicknesses all have some similar symptoms. If you have been in contact with a tick and begin to have flu-like symptoms, a rash or other stomach or joint pain, contact your medical provider. Typically, a tick would need to be borrowed in the skin for over 24 hours for the illness to pass. You may not know it is there, or if you find a tick, you may not know for how long it was attached. Best practice for when you find a tick on the body or on the body of a family member or pet, is to have it tested to see if it’s a carrier for serious disease. To protect yourself, it is best to prevent them around your property and to give yourself, pets and others with you a tick check every 2 hours while out enjoying wildlife.

While we focus on mosquitoes and ticks, our Louisville mosquito control product’s main base is cedarwood 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. This works on the natural repellant instinct in the bug—it isn’t something they adapt to over time.
