Remove water

One thing that you can do is make sure that you don’t have any water near or around your house.  Ticks and other insects like to be near water since it will give them water to drink as well as a place to lay their eggs.  If we remove this water, then they will need to move and find other sources.

Cut your grass

Ticks and other insects like to hide and make tall grass their home.  When we have tall grass the rays of the sun can’t really penetrate towards the ground making the grass a cool place to live and hide.  When we cut the grass and keep it maintained, then the bugs won’t have a place to hide and this will in turn keep them away from your home.

Spraying chemicals is another line of defense.  These chemicals however can cause secondary issues if not done correctly.  When spraying you want to use environmentally friendly chemicals that are water based.  If you do then they won’t run off into our water sources and cause environmental problems.
