New Jersey Tick Control-Philadelphia Tick Control
Whether or not ticks become a problem depends a lot on the surrounding conditions. Homes and businesses that reside in more remote and wooded areas are more likely to experience tick problems.
Any areas that have common visits from wild animals such as deer and birds will have ticks.
By keeping the outside area around a building free of brush, leaves, and tall grass, ticks have a tougher time making their way inside.
Sometimes prevention methods are simply not enough.
TermiGuard Pest Solutions experts can assist with more stubborn NJ and Philadelphia tick infestations by applying chemical treatments to kill and ward off these pests.
Tick Control Basics
Ticks are found in high grass and wooded areas all over the world. More than eight hundred species of ticks exist on the planet. These pests use animal blood to grow and reproduce.
A tick has four life stages. They begin as an egg and eventually transpire into an adult. Life cycles take approximately one to two years to complete.
Once the tick has hatched, they use blood to progress through their various life stages. They will spend days making a meal from their hosts blood if not detected.
Ticks wait on grass blades, brush, and other items for a host to come along. They attach with their front legs and then slowly make their way to a feeding location on the host.
A tick will remain attached for feeding unless detected on their host and removed.
Ticks spread diseases to humans and other animals. As they feed germs make their way into their host.
Bacteria, viruses, and other dangers are contained in tick germs and can lead to serious diseases such as Lyme disease. While not all ticks are infected, it is impossible to know which ones are and aren’t carriers.
Immediate removal is recommended for the utmost safety.
TermiGuard Tick Control Solutions can help with these pests by applying treatments that discourage ticks around your property and prevent them from entering your home.
Ticks like to hide in heavily grassed and wooded areas. Begin your prevention routine by trimming all tall grass. Remove weeds, undergrowth, and litter from the outside area.
Prevent entry with pets by applying flea and tick medicine. Mow and trim your lawn regularly. Do not pile wood next to your home. Birds are known tick carriers.
Move feeders and baths to a more distant location. Eliminate or reduce plants that attract deer and other animals. These wild animals carry ticks as well. You may want to install fencing if located next to a wooded area.
This will help in keeping out other tick carrying animals.
Clotheslines can allow ticks to attach hung clothes. They need to be higher to prevent vegetation from touching drying laundry.
Keep children’s play areas, picnic tables, and lawn furniture away from wooded areas.
Professional Tick Control Treatments
For more severe tick problems, chemical sprays may be used for both killing and prevention.
TermiGuard Pest Services are here to help in these situations. Pesticide application should be the last choice in tick control.
These chemicals can be very potent and are best handled by pest experts. To understand the problem at hand, an inspection must be done.
Tick samples are taken to determine if chemical treatment is necessary. Samples are collected by dragging white flannel fabric across your yard.
An evaluation is performed based on how many ticks attach to the fabric. High tick levels are justification for pesticide treatment.
Chemicals used to treat tick infestations may be in liquid or granular form. Yard vegetation and current tick stages help our professionals determine which treatment methods will be most affective.
Liquid treatments take care of any ticks that continually come out into open territory. Granular treatments are used for ticks that are in a hatching or hiding in leaf litter and other brush.
An inspection will provide insight on which chemicals will be the most successful.
