Take advantage of our preventative tick control treatments for properties in Westfield, Watchung, and Warren, NJ.

Our preventative treatments control the population of ticks, which are known to carry blood-borne illnesses that affect humans, pets, and wildlife.

Westfield has seen an explosion in their tick population in recent years.

Ticks are a major public health concern throughout the state of NJ. They are small insects that carry blood-borne illnesses. These illnesses affect humans, pets, and wildlife. The tick population has been spreading rapidly in Westfield, NJ and the surrounding communities of Watchung and Warren.

At Stream Line Lawn & Landscape, we offer preventative treatments to control the population of ticks and help you keep your yard tick-free all year long. 

When is Tick Season

Ticks can easily survive through the cold winter months, but you probably will not see them lurking about your yard during this time. In NJ, tick season starts at the end of spring or beginning of summer and lasts all the way until the end of summer when the weather starts to get cooler.

The worst months for ticks in our region tend to be May, June, and July. 

The Most Prevalent NJ Tick Species & Diseases It Can Carry

In the region of Westfield, Watchung, Warren, and other nearby communities in NJ, there are three common species of ticks with a fourth on the rise. The most prevalent species in the area is the Blacklegged tick or the Deer tick.

The Deer tick is the carrier of Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, and the Powassan virus. American Dog ticks are carriers of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, while the Lone Star tick is known to transmit Ehrlichiosis.

NJ has one of the highest incidences of Lyme disease, second only to Pennsylvania.

The newest species of tick emerging in this region is the Long-horned Tick. This is an exotic tick species from Asia that can spread serious diseases, such as the SFTS virus and the pathogen that leads to Japanese Spotted fever. This tick can transmit diseases to animals and can be transported by domestic animals, livestock, and wildlife, which makes it easy for the ticks to spread. 

The Recommended Number of Preventative Tick Control Treatments & Preventative Measures You Can Take

Homeowners in Watchung take the advice of keeping their lawns mowed, in order to avoid tick infestations.

At Stream Line Lawn & Landscape, we recommend 3-4 preventative tick control treatments per season. Treating your property for ticks, even if you have not seen them, is the best way to be proactive in preventing them from infesting your yard and creating health hazards for your family and pets.

Preventative Measures

In addition to our tick control treatments, there are preventative measures you can do to keep your property even safer from ticks and other pests.

Ticks like wooded areas and places they can hide. Try these small maintenance tasks around your home to make it even more difficult for ticks to make your lawn and landscaping their residence:

  • Have your grass mowed regularly
  • Remove piles of leaves, trash, or trimmings on your property
  • Keep wood piles away from your home
  • Have a 3-foot barrier of Cedar chips around your home or play areas to deter a number of pests, including ticks
  • Keep gathering areas and play areas away from trees, fences, or the edges of your property
