Tick Control & Exterminator In NJ & FL

Ticks are notoriously well-known to be problematic for dogs and humans alike. These tiny arachnids are known as ectroparasites, in which they live on the outside of their chosen host. These pests feed on the blood of mammals and birds. Out of the vast majority of Tick species, they all feed on the blood of mammals, however some will occasionally feast on amphibieans and reptiles.

What Are Ticks?

These tiny, wingless arachnids originate from the order Parasitiformes, specifically Acari. These insects are considered to be dangerous to humans and pets as they can carry and transmit a large number of pathogens and disease such as Lyme disease, babesiosis and human anaplasmosis.

Excel has been very accommodating with respect to scheduling appointments at our convenience. Russ has been the service representative who has visited us most often.

A big plus is that he keeps the appointments, thereby avoiding our need to change other appointments or to reschedule our appointments with Excel

How Can A Tick Enter My Home?

Like all insects, Ticks enter the home in search of shelter and easy access to a host for food (pets and human).

Ticks are commonly found in bushy and woodland areas. Whether they are hanging onto to leaves, trees or walking around in the grass, when a host passes by, they cling to their fur, hair or clothing.

This is one of the more typical ways that Ticks enter into the house.

These insects can also enter the home though:

  • gaps, holes and small openings surrounding doors and windows
  • cracks in drainage system
  • cracks in ventilation system
  • poorly screened or open doors and windows
  • cracks or gaps in the foundation

Why Is It Important To Treat A Tick Infestation?

It is extremely important to rid your home or pets of a Tick infestation. These insects are potentially harmful as they carry and transmit a large number of diseases and pathogens, including Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and relapsing fever.

Also, knowing these pests are running wild in the house or are possibly on your pets or your family members can be stressful and cause discomfort and worry.

How Can I Prevent Ticks From Entering My Home?

To prevent Ticks from entering your home in the future, it is important to:

  • check yourself and your pets before reentering the house
  • always apply insect repellent before stepping outdoors
  • keep your outdoor living environment as dry as possible
