How To Identify A Tick Infestation

Appearance - The most common ticks in Ames, 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 Ames, IA tick species are minuscule, it's hard to spot these parasites, which makes Ames, 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 Ames, 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 Ames, IA ticks. Having them on your property and in your home can cause health problems for yourself and your family. Pinpointing and treating a Ames, IA tick infestation as soon as possible is extremely important. Our professional Ames, IA tick control professionals are trained in the most effective tick removal methods.

Reviews

I had treatment done today and as usual, the work was the best! The technicians are efficient, friendly, and know what they're doing!

It's been a great three-year experience with Presto-X. They got our carpenter bee problem under control so that no more damage could be done to the house. I've always found them to be polite and accommodating.


March 1st, 2017

Representatives from Presto-X were within the vicinity, and gentlemen knocked on a couple doors asking if anyone needed services. I pointed them to a giant wasp nest on my neighbor's eve, asked how much it would cost to get this down for this elderly couple. The guy explained the treatment plan. I told him that the residents in the home are 90+ years old, and it would be unlikely that they would sign up. Surprisingly, a team came to the elders' house and removed the wasp nest for free! They were amazing! Highly commendable guys!

The team at Presto-X is composed of nothing but very friendly and professional reps. And what I really like is their promptness to come out and treat your home, even in middle of "bug season." P.S.
