A small amount of swelling in the area near the bite for a few days doesn’t necessarily indicate Lyme disease. Many people experience a mild allergic reaction to a tick’s saliva, but the swelling should be gone within a few days. Nevertheless, if you have a tick infestation, let Fox Glen Ellyn Area come to your house to with tick removal.
If the swollen spot grows and swelling persists for a week or more, this could be an early sign of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme could prevent its long-term effects. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you see early signs of Lyme disease. In the meantime, call Fox for the best tick extermination treatment.
Transmission of Lyme disease from ticks can take 24-48 hours in most cases, so by checking for ticks regularly, you can avoid many of the problems ticks cause. If you do find you have an infestation, Fox will send a certified tick exterminator -- in many cases that same day.
If you are bitten by a tick and you’re worried about a potential infection, seek medical attention right away.

We had issues with lots of yellow jackets in our yard and were worried about them stinging us anytime we were outside. We called Fox Pest Control on Wednesday and had a wonderful technician, Gregg, at our home to treat the yellow jackets on Friday morning! From the first call with Calder, we were able to get a clear plan to not only remediate the yellow jackets now, but over the next year, along with other pests like ticks, fleas and spiders. Gregg, our tech, called 30 minutes before to let us know he was en route -- right within the 2-hour window provided too -- and went right to work doing the treatment, cleaning up spider webs and debris. He was fast, efficient, professional and very knowledgeable. Also, as it's a pandemic, it was so nice to see a tech arrive with a mask worn properly and giving six feet of space without me asking, something I greatly appreciated for safety and showed great respect/professionalism. The pricing, quality and care given to our family was remarkable, I will be using Fox for any future needs and I cannot recommend them more highly!
Greg was great! very knowledgeable and willing to check all spaces for mice/rodent activity. Placed the proper traps as well as sprayed for spiders/insects in my crawl space as well as main living area and exterior of my home and garage. He even brushed the whole exterior clear of any webs and applied tick/ant granular to my mulch and grass areas. They will come back in 14days to check the progress. I Would defiantly recommend Fox Pest Control to anyone with an pest issue.
We've been using Fox Pest Control for about a year now. Our technician is Emilio **** and he is absolutely wonderful. Not only is he always on time, he's courteous enough to call when he's 10-15 minutes away to make sure we're ready when he arrives. He's extremely well versed in his area of expertise, and is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure our needs are met. He is highly recommended!
Robby and Kevin are professionals in what they do. I was surprised how understanding they were when speaking with me. My husband was the one who always handled the pest control.Now that I had to manage this account, I was explained in simple understanding terms. Excellent in their field.Thank you Maria
Fox Pest came to our location on the 8th of January. Keith Calow was the Tech. He did a very professional job. He explained what he was going to do before hand. When completed he then explained the results. He did a great job. Looking forward to his return in 3 months.
