How To Identify A Tick Infestation

Appearance - The most common ticks in Alden, IA include the deer tick, American dog tick, and lone star tick. They vary in size depending on species, ranging from 1 mm (about the width of the narrow side of a dime) to over a centimeter long after a good meal. They have eight legs and are members of the arachnid family. Ticks have bodies comprised of a small head and larger body.

Behavior - Ticks survive on the blood of animals including mammals, birds, and reptiles. Although they have a preferred host, ticks will feed on anything available - including humans, deer, livestock and dogs and cats. Ticks consume blood during all four of their lifecycles, and as a result, pathogens (organisms that cause diseases in animals they infect) can be carried throughout all stages.

Living near tall grass, large properties or near any type of area with a decent amount of wildlife may make ticks more abundant in your area. Furthermore, having your pets or yourself and your family walk in these areas may cause a tick or two to hitch a ride back to your home, being the precursor to a potential tick problem.

Why You Might Have Ticks

If you live in a wooded area and have cats or dogs, you are more likely to develop a tick infestation. Since many Alden, IA tick species are minuscule, it's hard to spot these parasites, which makes Alden, IA tick control especially difficult. They often hitch a ride indoors on your pet, on humans, or on clothing and shoes. After they finish sucking the blood from their host, they will drop off and begin laying eggs. They seek out crevices and cracks indoors. When laying eggs outside, they like long grass.

By cutting your grass short and repairing holes in the home, you can take steps toward preventing a tick infestation. If you have ever seen a tick on your pet, or if Alden, IA tick infestations are particularly common in your neighborhood, then you may want to consider giving your dog or cat on a preventative medication.

Reasons To Treat Your Tick Problem Immediately

Serious diseases such as Lyme disease are spread by Alden, IA ticks. Having them on your property and in your home can cause health problems for yourself and your family. Pinpointing and treating a Alden, IA tick infestation as soon as possible is extremely important. Our professional Alden, IA tick control professionals are trained in the most effective tick removal methods.

Reviews

Couldn't be more satisfied with the tech's work. So thorough and efficient. Thank you.

Everyone on the team is wonderful! The technician performed a thorough inspection and showed me two holes outside that mice seem to be using as entry points. We hadn't even heard any scratching or seen any signs of mice. He sealed those holes up. He also put down some ant bait for the colony near the roof. You won't be sorry when you sign up for service with them!

Our rep is the most good-looking rep from Presto-X, even though he is an Eagles fan. Kidding aside, he gave enough notice before coming out and was very detail-oriented when it came to the treatment. Looking forward to have him do our treatment again.

This is my first year with Presto-X. I have an ant issue. They were rather difficult to get rid of, so they came back out a number of times. I also have spiders, so they applied pellets and knocked off cobwebs. So far so good. All reps were very professional, explaining the entire process in great detail.
