How To Identify A Tick Infestation

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

Reviews

One of the most thorough pest control professionals we have hired. Spent time to not only address the complaint but also to explain what and why our termite issue was happening.

The technician was such an expert. Discussed the process and showed us where the most activity was. Thanks for the hard work!

We usually don't go for door-to-door sales nor annual contracts, but we've been having carpenter ant issues that needed looking into. The technician came and did a meticulous treatment both inside and out, and we haven't seen any bugs since! That was a week ago. The products they're using are definitely better than what you can get at the local store. The way things are going we will probably stay with them another year.

Awesome technicians! They are great asset to your organization. I was running late but the technician was very decisive and started the treatment outside. When I got home, he was all set to do the inside treatment so no time was wasted.

We had serious pest problem in the house, and we can to a point when we felt hopeless and getting rid of the bugs seemed impossible. We then decided to call Presto-X for professional help, and we were excited to see wonderful results. The tech who came was very evidently experienced. As a business owner myself, I can say that this gentleman is an asset to this company. He was very knowledgeable and clearly answered our inquires and concerns. Keep up the good work Presto-X! My loyalty is yours and I will recommend you to my friends and family!

We have been using Presto-X since 2013. I highly recommend them for efficient, professional and people-oriented service!

Technicians were very polite and very efficient at their job!

Even though the rep explained that there would likely still be ant activity for a few days after the first treatment, I did not expect that there would be a SIGNIFICANT decrease of activity on the same day of treatment. He also explained the ants would likely come back in two weeks. After seeing some ants after two week, I called them to schedule a re-treat, and I love that they came out within 24 hours! On top of all that, the rep was friendly, professional, and obviously happy with his work. This only reinforces my belief that if a company treats its employees well, the employees will also treat its customers well. There is simply none other like Presto-X.

If first impressions do last, then I will be using Presto-X forever. I thought their strategy to go door-to-door was genious. That's how we found them (or how they found us). My parents were haveing mice and wasp issues at that time. When we set up an appointment, the reps were punctual, explained everything in detail, quite knowledgeable and competent, were easy to talk to, and so pleasant and accommodating that even my two dogs had no problem with them. All throughout, we all felt very safe. The reps treated our house with such care as if they were treating their own home, and not once did they rush with the job. If ever I have future pest problems, Presto-X is my obvious first choice, and I highly recommend them to anyone anytime.
