There’s nothing like a refreshing walk during a Massachusetts fall. Pull a sweater over your head, maybe wrap yourself in a scarf, and do the rounds around the yard — the leaves are warm orange and yellow. Would you rather cap off this lovely Fall experience drinking a cup of hot apple cider or pulling a tick off your forearm? With the right tick control, you can make that decision ahead of time. It’s still not advisable to jump in every pile of leaves you see, but tick control can make your Fall outdoor experience a bit easier. Here are a couple of the things it’ll let you do without concern:
Walk in the Woods
Ok, not deep in the woods. If you have a path in your yard, you can likely walk it with impunity after applying tick control, though. Fortunately, it’s just a myth that ticks can jump onto you from trees. They can’t fly, either. If the foliage close to your path has been sprayed, there’s little chance one of the little bloodsuckers will be hanging from the leaves, waiting for you to catch them. You can take your nature walk in peace.
The Fall is the perfect time for outdoor exercise: the temperature is comfortably in the low fifties and the changing leaves give everything a fresh tint. After you get tick control, you can go for a jog around the neighborhood or even do outdoor yoga without fear of getting ticks.
Spend Time with Pets
Dogs love the Fall just as much as people do — they’re usually the first ones romping through leaf piles. As fun as it can be to watch them enjoy themselves, leaf piles can be hot spots for ticks. With tick control, you won’t have to worry about having to remove a tick from their fur every time you take them outside.
A Massachusetts Fall is a beautiful thing. Don’t share it with ticks. Make this season the best yet with effective, long-lasting tick control.
