Although ticks may vary in size, color, shape, and location, there is one thing that they all have in common: ticks can spread diseases. They latch onto house pets and humans from tall grasses, and they can stay on a host for long periods of time. They feed on blood while possibly transmitting diseases such as Lyme and HGE. Ticks can be identified on you or your pets as small arachnids with little legs and a round body. If a tick has been feeding for a while, it will appear swollen and a little smaller than a pea.
We believe that the best way to prevent ticks from entering your home is to treat the root of the problem. By exterminating the presence of ticks in your yard and around your home, the chances of a tick being brought inside and infecting those who reside there are greatly reduced.
