The month of May is dedicated to spreading awareness of the prevalent, yet preventable illness, Lyme disease. Once the weather begins to warm, the threat of tick-borne illness escalates. Local tick expert and owner of East End Tick & Mosquito Control, Brian Kelly, has offered up ten tips for East End residents to consider to help decrease the risk of contracting a tick-related illnesses. Kelly says: • Remember, ticks can be found anywhere. It’s important to use repellent when going outdoors and to check for ticks often. • Keep pets confined to your landscaped lawn and never allow them to enter the woods or woods edge. * If you stopped your pet’s tick preventive over the winter, get it started again NOW. • Implement a professional rodent control program around your home to reduce the number of ticks on your property. • Remind kids of the dangers of going into the woods and uncharted territory. Teach them how to check themselves, too. • Keep a tick removal kit ready so you are well-prepared if you do come across an embedded tick. • Keep your grass cut short and don’t over-water your plants and shrubs. Ticks are attracted to long grass and cool damp areas. • Ivy and other sorts of ground cover are tick hot spots and should be avoided. * As part of your spring yard clean-up, eliminate tick habitat by raking and removing leaves that may have blown into yard edges and under shady vegetation • Spray monthly from April through October to control ticks on your property.
