Don’t Invite Ticks to the BBQ
Warm weather means everyone wants to spend more time outdoor – especially your household pets. Ticks can carry an array of diseases (Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and more) and spread them to humans and animals.
If you find even a single tick with possible origins in your home, it’s best to seek tick control immediately, as to stem the possibility of more ticks becoming prevalent. Ticks can lay up to 3000 eggs at a time, making their ability to reproduce one of the most alarming features about them! Along with this, their tendency to latch on to people and pets to feed makes them extremely mobile, meaning tick nests can span great lengths throughout your home. Remember, ticks can go from person to person and pet to person, so inspection among family members is paramount when a tick is located.

Tick Prevention and Treatment Services
Our Pestechnologists being by treating your home in the spring, the season when hungry deer ticks are increasing their activity after winter of hibernation and begin to appear in the nymph- stage.
A second treatment is done in the summer; this is essential, since outdoor activities and tick populations are both at their seasonal peak, making you most susceptible to bites.
We then repeat once more for a final treatment in the fall. This is known as a “control period,” and is crucial, as nymph and adult ticks are most abundant in early autumn. It is important to remember, though, that the season does not end there; adult ticks are active even with snow on the ground.
