Tick Extermination Company
Few pests in this country evoke as much fear and anxiety from people than the tick. Though tiny and sometimes undetectable, they pose a threat to both humans and animals. A single tick can carry and transmit over 15 dangerous viruses and infections; some like Lyme disease are life-threatening. When ticks reach their final adult stage, they climb to the top of a blade of grass. There they can detect the body heat or odors of warm blooded creatures and when one comes close enough they’ll latch on and crawl until they find skin to feed on. If ticks are a concern inside your home or in your yard, call Richmond Pest Control today for professional tick extermination in Staten Island, NY and the surrounding boroughs.
Tick Pest Control Services
Richmond Pest Control has decades of experience in providing residents and businesses throughout the area with effective tick control solutions, treatments and preventative measures. If you suspect an infestation in your area, call us immediately! First, we’ll inspect inside and outside to determine the root cause and live infestation areas. We offer different solutions depending on where we find the problem area(s). Most commonly, our exterminators will apply chemical tick control products to the affected area to kill live infestations and offer a protective barrier against future ones. Our tick pest control chemicals are environmentally-friendly and safe for your outdoor pets. In many cases we’ll also offer modification advice so your outdoor area is less attractive to ticks in the future.
While many believe ticks are strictly outdoor pests, if they make it inside your home or business they can breed quickly and thrive. During the warmer seasons make sure to check yourself, family and pets every day. We would recommend doing checks multiple times per day if you live in a heavily wooded area and are outside frequently. While Richmond Pest Control will effectively eliminate a tick infestation, some guidelines to follow for prevention include keeping grass trimmed, applying monthly tick prevention medicine to animals, keeping pets away from heavily wooded areas and sealing cracks or gaps on the outside of your home. These simple methods can discourage tick infestations inside and outside your home.
