Did you know that blacklegged (deer) ticks, carriers of Lyme disease, like to spend the winter nestled in the fur of a deer?  If you have deer in your yard this winter, your pet may come into contact with ticks.

As long as temperatures stay below 35° F, ticks remain inactive. On warmer days, however, those ticks may be out looking for a blood meal. Anytime temperatures rise above 35° F, you should take precautions to avoid tick bites, just as you do in summer months.

If you’re concerned about ticks around your home or place of business, give Dave’s Pest Control a call at 1-800-400-6009.
