Aspenn Alerts: Tick Control in Garfield Park East, NJ 08046
TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR GARFIELD PARK East, NJ:
Willingboro township is home to Garfield Park East, a suburban community that serves as home to many who work in Philadelphia. The community is known for beautiful trees and streets; and is a surprising subject for an Aspenn Alert.
However, the suburban development in Garfield Park East is why the region has a higher-than-average incidence of tick bites and Lyme disease. Instead of deer, the primary vector for ticks has become small mammals such as mice or squirrels. These can inadvertantly carry infected ticks into people’s yards and gardens; where they pose a risk to family and pets.
