Tick Control

Tick Control Riverside, Corona, Norco, Eastvale

Ticks are extremely small, insect-like pests that are most often found in naturally vegetated areas.  They feed by attaching themselves to humans and animals where they sink their mouthparts into the skin and begin sucking their blood for several days.

There are over 45 species of ticks that have been found in the state of California, however, only 6 different species are known to bite and prey on humans. A tick problem must be dealt with in a fast and efficient manner. They often carry around viruses and bacteria that can be transmitted to another person while the tick is attached to the skin and feeding.

Ticks can carry around serious diseases such as Lyme disease.  Early signs of this inflammatory disease include headache, fever, chills, and a rash.  More advanced signs include arthritis, cardiac disorders, and neurological disorders.

Many people do not know how to get rid of ticks since they are so small in size and cannot always be easily seen. A tick control specialist is needed for successful tick removal and premium pest control.

Pest Control Tips for Tick Reduction

Reducing the number of ticks on your property will reduce the risk of getting bit by one.  There are several different ways you can reduce the amount of ticks on your property.  Some of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Clear brush and tall grass from around your home.
  • Keep your grass short by mowing it frequently and edging your lawn with each cut.
  • Consider putting up a fence to discourage unwelcome animals from entering your yard.
  • Keep your deck, patio, or play equipment away from trees and the edge of yards.
  • Remove all leaf litter and keep wood stacked neatly in a dry area.
  • Remove all trash or old furniture from the yard to reduce the places that ticks can hide.

Ticks have four stages of life.  These stages include the egg stage, 3 parasitic stages, 2 immature stages, and the adult stage.  In California, Lyme disease is transmitted in the immature stage of nymph and the adult stage of ticks.  People are at the highest risk during the months of April through July.  They seek hosts while the temperatures remain a little cooler as extremely hot weather makes them susceptible for drying out.

Pesticides for ticks, also known as acaricides, can greatly reduce the number of ticks on your property.  Small amounts of pesticides must be applied at certain times of the year, so a tick control specialist is required for proper tick removal.  Typically, a pest control expert will spray once in May or the beginning of June and once more in the month of October.
