Use environmentally friendly chemicals
When it comes to spraying and using poison you don’t want to solve one problem by causing another. You want to make sure that you are using environmentally friendly chemicals that are water based. These water-based chemicals won’t cause damage to the environment and if they do make their way to the water source they will become inert and not be a problem if ingested.
Maintain your lawn
You want to make sure that you maintain you yard and lawn. When you do this the ticks won’t have a place to live, breed or cause problems. When you maintain your yard you are also helping to prevent rodents such as rats and mice from having a place to stay as well.

When you keep up with these situations you are reducing the likelihood of outside contamination
