Syracuse, NY, is surrounded by farmland and woods, which makes it the perfect place for ticks.
Ticks are small, parasitic insects that can sustain on the blood of their hosts, which can include animals and humans. They are often found in tall grasses and bushes, waiting to attach themselves to a passing host.
Ticks can also transmit several diseases to their hosts, including Lyme disease, tularemia, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Lyme disease is the most common disease carried by ticks in the United States, and Syracuse is no exception.
Between 40 and 50 percent of ticks collected and tested in Central New York carry the Lyme disease bacterium, and this rate is ever-increasing.
Lyme disease symptoms include fever, chills, fatigue, joint pain, and a bulls-eye rash. If left untreated, Lyme disease can cause serious health issues, including neurological problems and cardiac issues.
If you think a tick may have bitten you, you must see a doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor can check for Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
If you have ticks on your property, here are some things you should know:
Understanding ticks and how to remove them from your home can help you prevent Lyme disease and other tick-related illnesses.

Finding one tick in your home is enough to make your skin crawl, but finding multiple ticks can signify an infestation. But how much does it cost to get rid of ticks?
The cost of tick extermination in Syracuse, NY, depends on a few factors, including:
The size of your property: The size of your property will determine how much treatment is needed. Our Yard Enjoyment Plan provides a monthly application in your yard that will prevent ticks as long as the treatment is being used.
The severity of the infestation: If you have a tick problem inside your home you will want to get a Home Protection Plan. This plan will treat for ticks inside as needed and is a seasonal plan, so your technician will come every season to place a preventative barrier to keep ticks out of your home in the future.
The type of treatment: The type of treatment you choose will also affect the cost. Hiring a Fox Pest Control professional to treat your home may seem more expensive than doing it yourself, but it will likely be more effective and lead to long-term results, saving you money and offering lasting protection.
The best way to find out the cost of tick extermination in Syracuse, NY, is to call a Fox Pest Control expert for a free estimate. One of our experts will visit your home to assess the situation and give you a price quote for the treatment tailored to your specific needs.
