When Does Tick Season Start in Connecticut?


When Does Tick Season Start in Connecticut?

Tick and Turf offers tick spray treatment programs in the Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield County areas of Connecticut that involve the application of insecticides or tick repellents to control and reduce the tick population your property. In Connecticut, tick season typically begins in the spring, around late March or early April, and continues through the summer months into the fall, typically until November. However, the exact timing and intensity of tick activity can vary depending on various factors such as temperature, humidity, and vegetation growth.


During the warmer months, ticks become more active and are more likely to be encountered in outdoor areas such as wooded areas, grassy fields, and gardens. Black-legged ticks (also known as deer ticks), which are known carriers of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses like babesiosis and anaplasmosis, are prevalent in Connecticut.


It's essential to be vigilant and take preventive measures throughout the tick season to reduce the risk of tick bites and tick-borne diseases. This includes wearing protective clothing, using insect repellents containing DEET or picaridin, performing regular tick checks after outdoor activities, and creating tick-safe zones around homes and recreational areas by removing leaf litter, clearing brush, and maintaining well-manicured lawns.


Additionally, staying informed about tick activity in your area and following guidance from local health authorities and tick-borne disease prevention organizations can help you stay safe and reduce the risk of tick-borne illnesses during tick season in Connecticut.
