Maine is easily one of the most beautiful states in the country, and its abundance of untouched and gorgeous woodlands is one of the biggest reasons why tourists flock here. The downside of having heavily-wooded areas filled with wildlife surrounding us is that they are densely populated with ticks, and each year it is becoming harder to avoid coming into contact with them.
With so much available land across the state, many homes in Maine are built in previously uninhabited areas of the wilderness that have long been dominated by ticks. The privacy of a home nestled in the woods is a wonderful luxury, but getting rid of ticks in these locations is very difficult. The statewide population of deer ticks has skyrocketed over the past decade and because it is expected to further continue its growth and expansion in years to come, professional pest control companies have been bombarded by homeowners looking for the most effective means of eradicating ticks.
If you live in an area surrounded by wilderness, chances are that at some point you will have a tick infestation on your hands. Rather than staying indoors or trying to tackle the problem yourself, hire experts who are able to rapidly reduce the tick population on your land and give you advice on steps you can take for future tick prevention. Lucas Residential offers complete tick control programs tailored to your specific needs, and their state-licensed pesticide applicators are experts at addressing the issue without causing further problems to the ecosystem of your landscape. If you have a tick infestation, getting professional help is the wisest investment that you can make.
