Work With Quality Pest Control To Tame Your Tick Worries
Ticks are arachnids and external parasites. They have flat, oval-shaped bodies and eight legs. Depending on the type of tick you encounter, they can vary from grayish-white, reddish-brown, brown, black, or yellow. Lonestar ticks, dog ticks, Rocky Mountain spotted wood ticks, and deer ticks are native species in our area, so you'll most likely see reddish-brown, brown, or black ticks.
Ticks don't have wings and can't jump, so they find potential hosts by hanging out in tall grasses, shrubs, or underbrush and waiting for a host to pass by. The process of ticks finding a new host is called "questing."
Although tick infestations don't usually occur indoors, these pests can be a big concern in your yard and sometimes make their way indoors. If you are worried about ticks, contact the Omaha, NE pest control professionals at Quality Pest Control for assistance.
Quality Pest Control's Tick Control Treatments
At Quality Pest Control, our highly trained service specialists provide top-notch tick control. We work with our clients to provide treatments that meet their specific needs instead of relying on a one-size-fits-all approach. Using an Integrated Pest Management methodology, we first identify the problem, address the resources that are attracting the pests and allowing them to survive, apply targeted materials, achieve control of the problem, and finally implement long-term protection.
To help you get started protecting yourself, your family, and your pets against these pests, we want to share several tick prevention tips:
- Check yourself, pets, and family members for ticks after spending time outside.
- If you plan on spending time in wooded areas or somewhere with tall grass, like along a lake or pond, it's a good idea to wear long clothing.
- Wearing dark-colored clothes also makes it more challenging for these pests to spot you.
- Talk to your veterinarian to have your pets on a year-round tick preventative.
