Facts About Ticks in Connecticut
Deer ticks, or black-legged ticks, are a fact of life here in Danbury, CT, and surrounding areas. In fact, recent research and publications indicate that tick populations and the diseases they transmit are on the rise in Connecticut.
While we often think of ticks being found in wooded areas and parks, they're also present in even the most perfectly manicured yard - even if you can't see them.
Some common activities that may expose you to tick bites include the following:
- children playing outside
- yard work and gardening
- wood cutting
- property maintenance
- picnicking (including dining in your own back yard)
- trail bike riding
- animal husbandry
- dog walking
Types of Ticks Found in Connecticut
In Connecticut, there are three major tick species that are known to carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans.
- Deer Tick aka Black Legged Tick (Ixodes scapularis) - This is the most commonly-seen tick and is responsible for transmitting Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, and Lyme disease.
- American Dog Tick (Dermacentor variabilis) - This tick can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Tularemia but cases are rare in CT.
- Lone Star Tick (Amblyomma americanum) - This tick is rarely seen in Connecticut (it's more common nearer to Long Island Sound). It transmits Erlichiosis.
TIMING FOR EFFECTIVE TICK CONTROL
Most Lyme infections occur in spring, which is why it's critical to start your tick control program in spring. We typically apply tick control treatments every 6 weeks or so, starting in April.
The first visit in our tick control program takes place in April, with the goal of disrupting the egg-laying process among the adult ticks that have started to emerge and reducing the overall population.
Subsequent tick control visits suppress ticks at the larval, nymph and adult growth stages, cutting down the total number of ticks and controlling adults before they have a chance to safely hide for the winter.

TWO TICK CONTROL PROGRAMS TO CHOOSE FROM
While there are some DIY or consumer-grade tick control options, the best results are achieved through professional tick control applications. We offer two types of tick spray -
100% organic tick spray
Low concentration synthetic spray
To help eliminate ticks from your property, these insecticides are applied where ticks are most likely to be found -
- where the wood line meets the lawn,
- on perennial beds,
- in shaded areas and
- alongside trails and paths.
To minimize the impact on beneficial insect populations, we focus our applications on specific tick habitats. We use high-pressure sprayers so the tick control pesticide penetrates into leaf litter, crevices, ground covers, woodpiles and other areas where ticks hide.

ABOUT OUR TICK SPRAY PROGRAMS
All of our tick control programs involve regular property visits throughout the warmer months.
Each property is different.
Treating them with a one-size-fits-all program does not take into account the individual needs of each property and can lead to less effective control of ticks throughout their lifecycle.
We're proud to provide high-quality tick control services for Fairfield and Litchfield counties, CT.
