Control What You Can Control :: My Yard Is Tiny But I’m Still Spraying For Ticks

There are few things I love more than spending the day out in the yard with my family. Honestly, our tiny yard has been a saving grace on the hardest of days, and I’m so thankful to have some space to run around and expend some of the pent-up energy my three little firecrackers always seem to have. In our yard we are carefree… until I see a tick.

I’m no stranger to bugs. I grew up in the woods of southeastern Massachusetts. I’ve seen my fair share of ticks and swatted away more mosquitoes than I care to admit. With that, though, I’ve also known many people who have struggled with Lyme disease, and I’ve spent many hours worrying about disease-carrying mosquitoes. 

My yard is the size of a postage stamp! HOW can we have ticks? Well… it’s possible. And since everything else in my world feels upside down and out of control (hello, COVID-19), I’m choosing to control this. This year, I’m outsourcing my tick and mosquito control to Pure Solutions.

Did you know May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month? According to, most people get Lyme from the bite of a nymph, or immature tick. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed. Because they are so tiny and their bites are painless, many people do not even realize they have been bitten. And Lyme is most common in children, older adults, and others such as firefighters and park rangers who spend time in outdoor activities and have higher exposure to ticks. With all the additional time we’ll be spending in our backyard this summer, I can assume it will put us at higher risk for tick exposure too.

I had my second treatment with Pure Solutions a few weeks ago, and it was just as simple as the first time. We had been experiencing some rainy weather, and I received frequent updates from the Pure Solutions team so I would know when to expect my treatment. The gentleman who came to spray was super friendly and made sure to wave to my kids who were watching him from the window. Best of all, when he left there was NO residue on anything, and I felt comfortable sending my kids out to play a little while later because I knew the Pure Solutions products are National Organic Program Compliant and the treatments are safe for children, pets, and the environment.
