Fox Pest Control. No Bugs. Simply Better.
Much like fleas, ticks in Northern VA can cause lots of problems for pets, but they can also come into your home. If veterinarian-approved tick treatments for your pet can’t keep the ticks out of your home, it’s time to call a great tick exterminator like Fox Pest Control at (703) 454-8200. We have what it takes to root these pests out of their hiding places and get rid of ticks once and for all.
According to the NIH, ticks survive the winter by living underground. But as soon as it gets warmer than 46° F (which can happen suddenly), they become more active again and start looking for hosts to feed on – both animals and humans. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Yes, ticks can be very dangerous. Because they latch onto their host and suck blood over a long period of time, ticks can transmit a number of diseases, including:
- Lyme disease
- Colorado tick fever
- Powassan virus
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Tick removal is critical because they latch onto a host and suck blood over a long period of time.
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 Northern VA 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.
Ticks are external parasites that latch onto the skin of its host and suck their blood. Ticks only consume blood and nothing else during their lives.
Ticks are arachnids, distantly related to spiders, and an external parasite. They have eight legs and suck the blood of a host. In order to grow from a new hatchling to adulthood, the tick must consume blood several times.
