In the warmer months most of us find ourselves looking forward to things like vacation, days in the sun, and over all just some warmer weather. All of this sounds great, unless you are or you have a fur buddy. When the warmer seasons arrive that is when things like fleas and ticks start to come out again. Both fleas and ticks can be really annoying to your 4 legged, fur friends but did you know that ticks can actually pose a threat to humans as well? Ticks are very well known for carrying things like Lime Disease which, if gone untreated, can be fatal to humans.
Luckily there are some things that can be done to help keep those pest out of your hair (and your pets hair too.) One of the main things you can do is spray your yard. There are several different tick yard sprays out there, but you want to make sure the one you are buying has some permethrin in it. Permethrin is a chemical that is stronger than the chemical DEET which makes the tick yard spray work better. You might wonder when the best time is to spray your yard. The answer is after the winter snow has melted and the ground is dried out, so roughly around the month of May is a really good time.
