BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 17, 2018
SavATree, a leading provider of quality tree, shrub, and lawn care services, has seen an increase in tick-related requests among customers. Ticks are well-known for spreading Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Powassan disease, and several other tick-borne illnesses among humans and pets.
“We’ve expanded our geography significantly over the last 5 years, giving us a birds-eye view of the tick situation over wide parts of the East Coast and Midwest,” said Patrick Parker, Director of Plant Health Care at SavATree. “There just doesn’t seem to be an end to the number of property owners experiencing deer tick infestations. Almost across the board, demand for treatment is expanding as tick populations grow and owners become better informed.”
Experts have long documented that the threat seems to be growing. In 2016, the CDC reported almost 10,000 more confirmed cases than in 1996.
For property owners, treating the landscape remains the most effective way to deter ticks in a yard. SavATree notes that organic tick treatments are especially popular, along with cultural practices such as eliminating wood piles. These organic treatments use a human-and pet-safe blend of ingredients like cedar wood oil to kill ticks on contact and control populations for an additional 30 to 60 days. They are applied around the perimeter of the property, in brush, undergrowth, and tall grass.
