Pest Files

Ticks vary in color by species. Adult ticks can be smaller than a sunflower seed (over 1 cm long if engorged with blood), while tick larvae can be less than 1 mm. Common problem ticks include the American dog tick, deer or blacklegged tick and lone star tick. 

Often found near wooded and highly vegetated areas. Some species require moisture to survive. Females and males of most species feed on blood of mammals, birds and reptiles. Each tick species does have a preferred host, although most ticks will feed on whatever blood is available to them. Thus, ticks are known to bite livestock, deer, humans, dogs and cats.

There are four stages in a tick’s lifecycle – egg, larval, nymphal and adult. Ticks have only six legs during their larval stage and eight legs during their nymphal and adult stages. They consume blood meals during all stages. Pathogens, or organisms that cause diseases in the animals they infect, can be passed through the stages of a tick’s life cycle.

Control Methods

In order to detect potential pest issue early, we recommend you have regular inspection at your premises. All of our services are tailored to suit the need of your individual business.

Residual Spray

The 4 or 6 liters sprayer is an important tool for spraying control. A sprayer with a multiple spray nozzles can apply insecticides safely and accurately to the insect harborages. Insecticide is sprayed at cracks and crevices, wall edges, furniture, etc. Chemical with flushing agent will drive the bug out from their hiding place and this would also increase their frequency of contact with the toxic.
 

Sanitation

Vacuum regularly or wash pet bedding weekly will maintain a hygienic living environment as it is important to reduce or prevent ticks infestation.
