Ticks come into your home as uninvited guests, most likely on your dog but sometimes on clothing and people, so it’s not like you can build up the castle walls and only drop the drawbridge after a thorough inspection of your “people.”
The longer ticks stay in your home, the larger the number of them you’ll have crawling around ready to engorge on the blood of living hosts like your dog. The types of diseases ticks can carry depends on the type of tick you are looking at. The brown dog tick, which can live off your dog’s blood for a long time, doesn’t transmit Lyme disease, but he can pass on Rocky Mountain spotted fever, canine ehrlichiosis and babeesiosis.
You can find out if you have ticks in the home relatively easily due to their size and favored hosts. Ticks can be seen on your dog’s skin if you pull back the hair, and once the tick population grows, you can see them crawling on your floors and walls as well. The nasty thing about ticks is that once they’re in and exterminated, your whole home must be cleaned of all the eggs they’ve left around to prevent a new generation from living there.
You’ve vacuumed and scrubbed. You’ve bought the tick treatment for the dog. You’ve even taken out the tweezers and pulled them out of his skin, poor baby. But pest control needs to attack all the ticks in the house and prevent them from regrouping. We have plenty of experience with this, and our certified tick extermination specialists would love to stop all further bloodsucking efforts. Our extermination process will get the job done quickly and affordably.
First we will inspect your living environment for ticks, which are often found in attics, electrical sockets, crawl spaces, garages, wall voids, trash areas and unfinished basements. Once that’s done, we’ll take care of both the exterior and interior of your home to protect you from any future infestations — recommending the care of any growth in your yards that encourages the presence of ticks, and applying certain insecticides around the interior and exterior (based on the extermination solutions you are comfortable with). We believe MiteBuster's tick prevention system is the most efficient and cost-effective system you’ll find in NJ.
