There are quite a few different types of ticks. All ticks can spread disease. The Deer tick and American Dog tick are the most common types of insects that infest your home.
Soft ticks can transmit relapsing fever spirochetoses such as Borrelia Turicatae, Borrelia Parkeri and Borrelia Hermsii.
Hard ticks attach themselves to the skin of a host for long periods of time. Tick treatment is a must because they can transmit human diseases such as relapsing fever, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, equine encephalitis, Colorado tick fever, and several forms of ehrlichiosis. As you can see, all of these types of ticks can spread disease.
American Dog Ticks, Brown Dog Ticks and Black Legged Deer Ticks are the most common species found in New England. Infestations have been on the rise here over the past few years, which is a concern for pest professionals and homeowners alike. Ticks not only cause discomfort and irritation, they are carriers of diseases such as Lyme disease and HGE (Human Granulocytic Erlichiosus.) Ticks cannot hop or fly and must latch on to their targets from elevated surfaces such as tall grass and overgrown vegetation, making areas on the exterior of your home susceptible to infestation.
American Dog Tick
Will attach to animals including dogs, cattle, deer, raccoons and humans if given the chance.
Brown Dog Tick
Brown Dog Ticks will usually attach to dogs, occasionally feeding on people and domestic cats.
Black Legged “Deer Ticks”
Deer ticks attach primarily on deer, cattle and other large animals and people. Deer Ticks are carriers of Lyme Disease transmitting it through bites.
Waltham Pest Control can treat your home and yard to keep ticks away from you and your family.
Our tick treatment program is focused on reducing the number of ticks in and around your yard and removing the conditions that support tick activity.
