Are Ticks Harmful?
The bite of a black-legged tick (better known as a deer tick) causes the greatest concern. The black-legged tick is a carrier of Lyme disease as well as numerous diseases that can result in severe long-term neurological problems if left untreated.
Can I Get Rid Of Ticks Myself?
There are steps that you can take to protect you and your family from ticks, such as using repellants approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, wearing long clothing, and checking for ticks on you, your family and on pets. However, a tick-free yard requires a combination of the steps listed above and the assistance from a professional.
With our Biting Insect Service, our experts implement an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. This management approach uses a combination of techniques to prevent and reduce the population of ticks. This approach greatly reduces the amount of insecticides you and your family are directly exposed to while allowing you to enjoy your yard knowing that you and your family are protected.
