Ticks and Mosquitos are blood-feeding pests, which can possibly carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Ticks are found generally in areas that are brushy, shady, tall grasses, and wooded areas. Mosquitos breed on still water and don’t leave far from their breeding sites. Tick season starts in March to April and will extend to August.
