Tick Facts

The deer tick, a tiny creature the size of a sesame seed, has been linked to the spreading of Lyme and other diseases among humans. This small organism is dangerous for us and chooses larger animals as its primary targets, such as deer, cats or even dogs! But that’s not all — American dog ticks have spread Rocky Mountain spotted fever occasionally and are equally harmful to warm-blooded creatures, including ourselves.

Nearly 90% of all Lyme Disease cases have been reported in the northeastern part of the United States. Roughly 70% of people who develop Lyme Disease in North America catch it from ticks in their yards.

Powassan disease was discovered over 50 years ago. While still rare, there has been an increase in the number of ticks found to carry the virus, as well as in reported cases in our area. Powassan is spread by the same deer tick that transmits Lyme Disease. While comparisons are often drawn between Powassan and Lyme, the two conditions differ. Lyme is a bacterial illness, usually treated with antibiotics, while Powassan is a flavivirus with no current cure.

How To Protect Your Outdoor Space From Ticks

Preventive action against ticks is the best way to avoid infection. Keep an eye out in shady areas and near woods, as they commonly linger among low bushes, tips of grass blades, leaf litter piles or decorative ground covers.

At Tuff Lawn, we want to ensure you have all the information you need to protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of ticks.

Here are some helpful tips from our team:

  • Keep grass cut short.
  • Clear tall grass around your house and edges of the lawn.
  • Remove leaf litter, brush and weeds at the edges of your lawn.
  • Deter deer activity.
  • Trim branches around the lawn edge to allow for more sunlight.
  • If you find a tick on your skin, remove it immediately before it can bite and attach.
  • Conduct full-body checks on yourself and your family, especially in hairy areas. Don’t forget your pets!
