Tick problems are no joke. But don’t worry, your lawn can be tick-free in no time with Mahoney’s tick control for lawns.
We’ll be the first to say that this planet is absolutely beautiful – nature, animals, waters, plants, humans… It’s an honor to witness it all, and to be part of it.

Especially during a Long Island summer, drinking a glass of wine or playing a game in your backyard might be interrupted by an unwanted visitor. This particular visitor is not only unwanted, but downright dangerous: the tick. In this blog post, you’re going to find out why it’s very important to have tick control for lawns, and what you need to make it happen.

Why you should keep ticks under control
Unfortunately, ticks are as dangerous as they are tiny.
According to the CDC, ticks can cause at least 16 types of diseases. The most commonly known is Lyme disease, which can cause symptoms of fatigue, headaches, skin rash and, if left untreated, it can even spread to the heart and nervous system.
While there are multiple types of ticks throughout the U.S. with different effects on the human body, having a strong plan for tick control for lawns and yards will save you a lot of stress. We’re sure you don’t want to go through the trouble of removing a tick from your body and making sure to do it correctly (you shouldn’t rip its body apart). Plus you don’t want to worry about getting sick after you’ve been bitten.
What you need to know about ticks
Where they live
Long Island is particularly exposed to ticks because of its vast landscapes.
Be aware that you can find ticks in the woods, where fields meet lawns, in tall grass, under plants (leaves, bushes), and around stone walls or wood piles.
How you can get rid of ticks… or try to, at least
While a complete, customised pest management service is the way to go, there are still some things you can do yourself for tick control for lawns. Here are the 2 most popular of them:
- Lawn care: cut your grass short as often as possible, and keep your lawn free of leaves and other types of yard debris.
- Keep the animals away: deer, mice, and chipmunks are some of the perfect hosts for ticks. If you build a fence or get rid of the plants that these animals like, you have more chances to keep ticks under control.
It might also tempt you to use different sprays that claim to remove ticks from your lawn. Here’s a word of advice: please, be careful. There are so many chemicals in these products, and jeopardizing your landscape’s health, as well as your own, is not worth it.
