Wow, where did the summer go? Just as I was beginning to 'fall' for my summer routine, it seems like autumn is nearly here and August is almost over. That means, unfortunately, that tick season is upon on; and with it the potential to be infected with the various tick-borne illnesses that they can spread...
Well, here it is folks. The last of our 2018 Tick Talk blogs. The clock really does 'tick' by when you're having fun!
Since our first Tick Talk entry on April 19, we have written about tick biology, the tick life cycle, the infamous tick blood meal, our country's most notorious ticks, Lyme disease awareness, and finally, Integrated Tick Management. Now, with all these important topics in our back catalog, it's time to focus on how our Mosquito.Buzz specialized tick control service can work to protect your property from marauding ticks and keep you outside all summer long. A fitting end, wouldn't you say?
As a wise someone once said, 'all good things must come to an end'. Enjoy our final 2018 Tick Talk blog, and read on to learn more about our effective tick control service.

For many Canadians, the end of April means warmer weather and NHL playoffs. For us at Mosquito.buzz, however, April showers bring tick encounters - forget about those flowers!
While ticks can be active all year round, risk of human exposure is greatest in the late spring and during the summer. Once better weather hits, so do the ticks, and they will begin questing for their next blood meal as soon as they are ready.

There are people out there who are scared of bears, sharks, alligators... my partner even has an irrational fear of horses. The bigger the beast, the scarier it is. That's usually how it goes.
But what about something you can't always see from a distance, that literally inflates with blood after puncturing a tiny hole in your skin? And what if, after piercing said hole, they can send a disease swimming through your bloodstream?
