It's flea and tick season here in South Dakota! This means that their population is increasing and there are higher chances of coming in contact with them. So, what should you do? Many property owners try to "DIY" their pest treatments. However, we highly suggest that you reach out to a professional instead. Professional pest control companies use products that are proven to work, they know exactly where these pests hide, and they can help you cross flea and tick treatments off of your to-do list for good with an ongoing, hands-off program.

South Dakota's Flea & Tick Season

Flea and tick season in South Dakota begins in April and lasts until about October. Unfortunately, this matches up with the months that we like to spend a lot of time outdoors! It's important to know when flea and tick season begins and ends so that you can always stay vigilant and look out for these biting pests. Not only do their bites hurt, but they can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease. The best ways to avoid getting bitten by a flea or a tick includes keeping your grass nice and manicured as well as scheduling professional treatments to keep them away.

Pest control treatments should always be applied by a professional.

Applying flea and tick treatments to your lawn by yourself is not a task that you want to take on, especially during their peak season. It's easy to miss areas where they congregate if you don't know exactly where they are. You don't want to risk any chances of getting bitten by these pests, so we highly suggest turning to a professional pest control company for help.

Professionals use products that are proven to work and know exactly where to focus when treating your lawn. They understand the ins and outs of the life cycle of fleas and ticks and know where they hide out the most! Why waste time going through a trial-and-error process with different products when you can get it right the first time? In the care of a professional pest control company, you can rest easy knowing that you, your family, and your pets are all safe from their bites.
