Aspenn Alerts: Tick Control in Arneys Mount, NJ 08022
TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR ARNEYS MOUNT, NJ:
Named after the highest point in Burlington County, Arneys Mount is a small, unincorporated community within Springfield Township. It was named after Arney Lippincott, one of the first settlers of the township, and the home of Lippincott still survives today as the town’s most famous landmark.
In terms of ticks, Arneys Mount is the subject of an Aspenn Alert due to its rural location. Farms and agriculture surround the community, and this means there is a lot of wildlife that’s constantly on the move due to the disruption of farming. This roaming wildlife is the primary vector for Lyme infected ticks; as the animals inadvertantly serve as transport for ticks into and out of people’s yards and gardens.
