Tick Control Alerts




Walker’s Forge is named for Lewis Walker, who established the community by building a forge there in the early 19th century. Today, the community has been overwhelmed by nearby May’s Landing; and the identity of Walker’s Forge is perhaps known only because of the infamous Walker’s Forge Mansion; said to be haunted by a previous inhabitant, Rebecca Estell, until it burned down a little over a decade ago.

Residents of Walker’s Forge have more tangible things to be concerned about, however. The town is subject to an Aspenn Alert due to a high abundance of Lyme-infected ticks in the vicinity. They are often carried into people’s homes and gardens by passing wildlife; where they pose a risk to children, pets and homeowners.

  1. Damminix tick tubes can help mitigate the danger posed by the mice and small animals that often bring Lyme-infected ticks into resident’s gardens.
  2. Erecting barriers such as fences or hedges can help keep wild deer off your property – and the Lyme-infected ticks they often carry.
  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.
