Protecting Your Family, Pets & Yard from Tick Infestations

While ticks may be small, they can cause big problems. Ticks are not only a nuisance, but they are also a serious health threat. These tiny pests are carriers of many harmful diseases, including Lyme disease, which is the most common tick-borne illness in the United States. At Greenville Pest Control, we provide professional tick control in Greenville, SC, and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to protect your family, pets, and yard from infestations and the dangerous ticks that cause them.

About Ticks & Tick-Borne Diseases

Ticks are small, blood-sucking arachnids that are most active in the warm summer months. They can be found in tall grasses, thick brush, and wooded areas. Ticks are commonly found on deer, which is why they are so prevalent in rural areas and communities near forests. Unfortunately, ticks can also be found in suburban and urban areas.

When you or your pet comes into contact with a tick, it will attach itself to your skin and begin feeding on your blood. This can go unnoticed because ticks secrete a numbing agent that prevents you from feeling their bite. However, the longer a tick feeds on you, the more likely it is that it will transmit a disease. For this reason, it is important to remove ticks as soon as possible.

Some of the most common tick-borne diseases in the United States include:

  • Lyme disease
  • Rocky Mountain spotted fever
  • Anaplasmosis
  • Tularemia
  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Babesiosis
  • And more

Tick Prevention Tips

At Greenville Pest Control, we believe that the best way to deal with a tick problem is to prevent it from happening in the first place. We recommend taking the following steps to protect your yard and family from tick infestations:

  • Keep your yard clean: Ticks like to hide in tall grasses, thick brush, and leaf piles. Keeping your yard clean and well-maintained can help deter them. Be sure to mow your lawn regularly, trim back trees and shrubs, and remove any debris.
  • Get rid of wildlife attractants: Ticks are carried into your yard by wildlife, such as deer, rodents, and birds. By getting rid of wildlife attractants, you can help keep ticks away. This includes removing bird feeders, keeping trash cans sealed, and storing pet food indoors.
  • Install a fence: If you live in a wooded area, you may want to consider installing a fence to keep deer out of your yard. This can help reduce your risk of a tick infestation.
  • Wear protective clothing: When you are spending time outdoors, be sure to wear long sleeves, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. You should also tuck your pants into your socks and wear a hat to protect your head.
  • Use tick repellent: Apply an EPA-approved tick repellent to your skin and clothing before heading outside. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label carefully.
  • Check yourself for ticks: After spending time outdoors, be sure to check yourself, your children, and your pets for ticks. Be sure to check your hair, behind your ears, around your neck, under your arms, between your legs, and around your waist.

How to Remove a Tick Safely

If you find a tick on your skin, it is important to remove it as soon as possible. The longer a tick feeds on you, the more likely it is that it will transmit a disease. To remove a tick safely, follow these steps:

  1. Use tweezers: Use a pair of fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible. Be sure to grab the tick’s head and mouthparts, not its body.
  2. Pull it out: Pull the tick out with steady, even pressure. Do not twist or jerk the tick, as this can cause its head to break off and remain in your skin. If this happens, use the tweezers to remove the remaining parts.
  3. Wash the area: After removing the tick, wash the area with soap and water. You should also wash your hands thoroughly.
  4. Save the tick: If you are concerned that the tick may have transmitted a disease, you can save it in a sealed plastic bag or container. This can be helpful if you need to show the tick to a doctor.
  5. Monitor your health: If you have been bitten by a tick, it is important to monitor your health for the next several weeks. If you develop a rash, fever, headache, muscle aches, joint pain, or fatigue, be sure to see a doctor right away.
