Located just east of Dallas and Fort Worth, the city of Tyler, Texas, is known as the Rose Capital of America. Tourism is booming here, but that’s not the only thing that’s thriving. The area’s temperate climate and geography make it a hot spot for all sorts of pest activity, especially ticks, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Ticks are known to cause major health issues, as they are carriers of disease, such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, relapsing fever and Ehrlichiosis. Tick color varies by species, but the size of adult ticks if they are not engorged with blood from a host is generally about the same as a sunflower seed. While signs of a tick infestation typically include the tick itself, Tyler residents can take action to safeguard their homes from these pests by keeping the grass cut short, clearing out weedy and brushy areas and using approved insect repellents when in areas likely to harbor ticks. Treatment for ticks is not the same as treatment for fleas and often requires the assistance of a pest management specialist.
Other pests that plague Tyler include stinging pests, like wasps. They are frequently spotted in the Tyler area, especially during the late spring and summer months when residents are spending time outdoors. Wasps are attracted to food waste, including meat scraps, which makes summertime cookouts a target for pest activity. Texas A&M researchers cite that wasps are most likely to sting when their nests are disturbed. Tyler residents who think they may have a nest on their property should immediately contact a pest control expert to inspect and monitor the situation as these trained experts have tools like foams, aerosols and insecticides to treat infestations. Additionally, bees and wasps may be difficult for the average person to decipher, which is why residents should contact a professional, as each species is treated differently, and it is critical to properly manage important pollinators such as honey bees.
