TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR BECKETT, 08085:

Beckett is a township in Logan, Gloucester County. Intersected by Interstate 295, and flanked on both sides by tributaries of Racoon Creek, it’s nestled right in the heart of a high-density tick zone; and as a result homeowners are especially at risk of tick bites and Lyme disease.

The issue is the intersection of nature and suburbia. The constant traffic from the roads and the natural water barriers create a bottleneck for wildlife; which traipse through homeowner’s yards and gardens and often desposit Lyme-infected ticks as they pass through.

These ticks will later pose a risk to pets and children; or homeowners themselves.

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

Recommendations:

  1. Erecting barriers like fences, hedges and gates is a good first step to keeping wildlife out of your garden; and the ticks they carry out with them.
  2. Damminix tick tubes are recommended for residents of Beckett. These are designed to deal with the mice and small mammals that serve as vectors for infected ticks.
  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.
