Ticks are harmful pests, so it's understandable to want to repel them from your property in Tennessee. Fortunately, a few ways to do this include mowing your lawn regularly and removing debris. Ticks like to hide in tall grass, and piles of leaves, sticks, and other debris create a dark, moist environment where they can stay out of the sun and away from predators. Keeping your lawn well-maintained and debris-free will help reduce places for these pests to hunker down, making it less appealing. However, while these are proactive methods, the best way to ensure ticks stay off your property is by signing up for a professional tick control service. When you do, pros will apply highly effective treatments several times throughout the season to eliminate them and provide consistent, overlapping coverage.

Mowing your grass regularly will make it less appealing to ticks.

One way to repel ticks from your property is to mow your grass regularly. Ticks like to hide in tall grass because it helps them stay hidden, plus they wait atop the blades to latch on to a passing host. When you keep up with mowing your lawn, more sunlight can reach the soil, which these pests don't like, and they have less protection. As a result, it makes your property less appealing, and ticks aren't as likely to stick around.

Common ticks here in Tennessee include the American dog tick, brown dog tick, and the lone star tick.

Keeping Your Lawn Debris-Free Will Reduce Places Where Ticks Can Hide

Another way to dissuade ticks from residing on your property is to keep your lawn debris-free. Ticks are attracted to dark, shady, moist environments where they can seek refuge from the sun and hide from predators. Unfortunately, piles of leaves, sticks, and other debris give them just that! Cleaning up clutter across your lawn will reduce places where they can live, meaning they're more likely to search for that elsewhere.
