3 Ways to Protect Yourself During Tick Season in Wisconsin | Turf Badger

No One Does Pest Control Like Turf Badger!
As the warmer weather approaches in Wisconsin, so does tick season. Ticks are annoying pests that can potentially pose health concerns for you and your loved ones. Fortunately, you can be proactive in your protection from ticks with the following three tips! When you’re outside, you should wear light-colored clothing and tuck your shirt into your pants and your pants into your socks. Once you’re inside, check yourself, your kids, and your pets for any unwanted hitchhikers. Remember, don’t just check your feet and ankles; it’s important to conduct a full-body check because ticks can travel and embed in hidden areas on your body. Lastly, you should schedule tick control treatments for your property to give you peace of mind while enjoying your yard. With these preventative measures, you can enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about ticks.

1. Protect Yourself From Ticks When You're Outside

Warmer weather encourages more time spent outdoors to enjoy summertime activities, like swimming, playing in the yard, and hiking. However, this time of the year is also when ticks are most active; tick season starts in April and lasts until October. During this time, you should take precautions to protect yourself from ticks when you’re outside, and you can do this by:
  • Wearing light-colored clothing - You'll be able to spot any ticks on you more easily if you are wearing light-colored clothing because the dark color of the ticks will make them stand out.
  • Wearing long clothing - Tucking your shirt into your pants and your pants into your socks limits skin exposure, leaving fewer opportunities for ticks to latch onto your skin.
Be sure to remove your clothing and put them in the dryer on high heat once you’re back inside. This will kill any ticks that are on them.

2. Check for Ticks Once You're Indoors

Ticks are relentless, and no matter how many preventative measures you take when outside, they can still manage to latch on and go for a ride with you. Because of this, you must conduct a full-body check on yourself, your kids, and your pets once you’re indoors. Don’t just check your feet and ankles – ticks travel, so they could be somewhere else on your body.
Ticks tend to embed in hidden areas of the body, such as the scalp, ears, armpits, belly button, and between the legs. Be sure to check in these areas!

3. Keep Ticks off Your Property With Tick Control Treatments

Ticks are inevitable outdoor pests, but they don’t have to be for your property! Scheduling tick control treatments can keep your property tick-free and give you peace of mind that you won’t have to worry about these pests while you are in your yard. Many professional companies offer a tick treatment program where they will visit your property several times throughout the season to administer effective treatments. These treatments will provide overlapping, consistent coverage that prevents ticks from taking up residence on your lawn and ruining your outdoor fun.
