TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR CHELSEA HEIGHTS, 08401:

Chelsea Heights is located right in the heart of Atlantic City, on an island intersected by North Albany Avenue. It’s a neighborhood of beautiful houses with large gardens, and homeowners are often surprised to discover that they live in an area with a higher-than-average incidence of tick bites and Lyme disease.

The reason for this is west of Chelsea Heights – a stretch of undeveloped wetland which serves as the perfect breeding ground for ticks. A massive amount of wildlife lives in that stretch, and they’ll often journey into the yards and gardens of Chelsea Heights residents, and deposit Lyme-infected ticks as they do so.

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

Recommendations:

  1. Small mammals and birds are some of the primary vectors for Lyme-infected ticks in Chelsea Heights. Using Damminix tick tubes can help mitigate the danger posed by the mice and small animals.
  2. Owning a dog, or installing bird scarers, can help reduce the number of birds than land on your property and deposit infected ticks there.
  3. 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.
