Bird Removal & Bird Control in Fairfax, Alexandria & Arlington
What are Ticks?
Ticks are arachnids that are also known as parasites, because they feed off of the blood of their hosts. The hosts are usually mammals, birds and from time to time reptiles and other amphibians. Ticks prefer a warm humid climate, but they can be found in most parts of the United States, including Northern Virginia.
Summit Pest Control can rid your home of fleas by first identifying the source of the tick infestation through a free and comprehensive inspection and estimate process. Summit’s skilled pest control technician will evaluate your situation and create a program with our professional-grade chemicals.
What are the Most Common Diseases Spread by Ticks?
Pest control for ticks is important, because ticks are known carriers of viruses and diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever that could potentially affect you, your family members or pets for the rest of their lives. It is crucial to have ticks removed from your home and to limit their population in your yard around your home. Ticks might enter your home on a pet or person or might be able to enter through cracks and crevices in the home that allow them entry. Like most other pests, tick populations can be reduced with pesticides. In addition to pesticides, if you have a pet, it is advised they use either a topical flea and tick preventative or wear a collar to keep them at bay. Tick treatments will usually be conducted outside, in order to control the localized population, although treatment can also happen inside if desired.

Why is Tick Control and Prevention important?
As mentioned before, ticks are parasites and will feed off the blood of their victim or host. Ticks carry a lot of bacteria and the potential to spread diseases and viruses. The amount of blood that ticks take is not substantial for people or pets, but the risk they pose with the spread of diseases is enough to make it necessary to seek out pest control services when tick populations are out of control.
