For as long as I can remember Summer has been my favorite season of the year. I have so many memories of trips to the lake, hiking trails, not to mention the backyard barbecue. In Oklahoma the trees have been green for a while now, schools are ending their semester, and the sun is shining in full force. Take a walk over the weekend and smells of the neighbors backyard barbecues will inspire you to have your own. Before you do however, you may want to give us a call.
According to the Center for Disease control between the years 2004 and 2016 the number of diseases spread by mosquitos, ticks and fleas have more than tripled, and they are warning that 2018 may be a record breaking year.
Of course you can take precautions like dressing in light colored clothing so you can spot ticks easier, and doing a thorough check when you come inside over yourself, your children and your pets. Use insect repellant. Keep your lawn trimmed and when out hiking stick to the trails and avoid tall grass. If you have any areas of standing water these are potential breeding grounds for mosquitos. Take care of them as soon as possible.
