Insects and other pests can be frustrating to deal with, but did you know that these little nuisances can be much more of a problem than you may think? No one wants to deal with finding ants in the kitchen, rats in the basement, or any number of other pests in the home, but these pests can actually be dangerous as well as annoying. Ticks are no exception, which is why tick control is so important for keeping you and your family safe.
Ticks bite to get nutrients from your blood, which is more than just a painful annoyance. Ticks can carry a number of different serious diseases, including Lyme Disease. This disease can affect several different parts of your body and can be very dangerous if not looked at by a medical professional quickly.
If you’ve been bitten by a tick recently and have started noticing signs such as a fever, joint pain, or headaches, reach out to your doctor right away. Proper tick control methods can help you avoid this potential health hazard and these symptoms, so call a professional tick control specialist to make sure the ticks are dealt with safely and properly.
While there are some tick control methods you can do on your own, such as regularly mowing your lawn and using tick repellent any time you go outside, it’s best to call a professional if you’re worried about a tick infestation. This ensures that you won’t miss any ticks on your own. Call us here at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control for your tick control needs.
