How To Identify A Tick Infestation

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

Fine, so far.

TOOK THE TIME TO GO OVER EACH TRAP LOCATION AND EXPLAINED WHAT WAS GOING ON AT EACH LOCATION.


May 4th, 2017

It was very good... Tom explained everything very nicely and made both myself and tenant feel very comfortable that issue will be resolved. I loved his confidence in explaining how he would solve our issue. Others have never given me that 100% guarantee that they are with us until issue is resolved. Thanks! Nice work.
