TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR GARFIELD PARK, NJ:

Located right in the cul-de-sacs of suburban Willingboro, Garfield Park North is a community that takes its name from our 20th president (and not the ginger cat.) Much of the ‘park’ is now gone; replaced with houses, streets and schools.

This hasn’t got rid of Lyme-infected ticks, though. In fact, it’s potentially made them much more dangerous for residents, as the primary vector for ticks is now small mammals such as mice or squirrels. These inadvertantly carry infected ticks into people’s yards and gardens; where they can pose a risk to family and pets.

 

Tick Control in Garfield Park, zip code 08046

  • Risk Factor: Ixodes Scapularis ticks carrying b. burgdorferi (Lyme disease), babesia microti (bebesiosis) bacterium and Rickettsia rickettsii (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever)

Recommendations:

  1. Damminix tick tubes are recommended for residents of Garfield Park North. These are designed to deal with the mice and small mammals that serve as vectors for infected ticks.
  2. A yard spray for ticks can help eliminate ticks at all stages of their life-cycle. Call Aspenn Environmental Services to discuss your tick control options – call our New Jersey office on 1-888-881-BUGS (2847) to discuss which one works best for you.
