FAQs About Tick Exterminators in Pittsburgh, PA

How do I get rid of ticks?

Why do I need Fox’s treatments for ticks during the winter?

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. Looking for Pittsburgh, PA tick control near you? Call (724) 384-7071 or email us to get started.
