Foremost, keep the home or facility as clean as possible. Another facet of tick control includes the screening of vents to keep rats, opossum, squirrels and other flea ridden rodents out from under the foundation. Many times when dogs and other pets are allowed to seek shade underneath the house on a hot summer day, a rapid buildup of a heavy concentration of ticks may become more prominent. Be sure to wash pets’ bedding and vacuum areas frequented by your pet. Safe application of EPA-registered pesticide for ticks is extremely fundamental to controlling these pests.
Ticks are tiny blood-sucking arachnids that vary in color depending on each species. Generally 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch in size, ticks are typically found feeding on hosts (either a person or family pet). Ticks are vectors to a plethora of diseases including: Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and Tularemia.
We take the spread of such diseases at Cleargate Pest Defense seriously. Tick-borne illness is on the rise in the United States. Utilizing a professional company is a crucial method to protecting your family against Lyme disease. Our technicians implement a traditional barrier spray. This treatment is the most comprehensive form of defense against ticks. The barrier spray will not only kill ticks on contact, but also reduce the population if sustained throughout the season.
There are many other pests and wildlife that we treat. This includes beetles, bees and wasps, silverfish, centipedes, crickets, mites, snails and slugs, stink bugs, weevils, snakes, and many more.
