At Waltham Pest Control, we have 40 years of experience in tackling ticks throughout Boston, Metro-West, and other areas of Eastern MA.
Removing ticks throughout Boston and Eastern MA
It isn’t often that ticks burrow into the structure of your property. However, older homes have more ports of entry, which may leave them vulnerable to ticks and their nests. When they do enter, they may try to feed on humans and pets before returning to their nest for shelter. Unfortunately, ticks harbor lots of viruses that can leave you feeling quite unwell. The most worrying of these viruses is Lyme disease, which, if not treated right away, can lead to a lifetime of complications.
As a pest control company in Eastern Massachusetts, we’re adept at identifying ticks’ nests. We take a multi-faceted approach to removing ticks. This includes sunlight exposure to the vulnerable area, moving anything that attracts them, and chemical treatments that destroy the ticks’ nests. As pest control specialists, we also provide tips on keeping ticks away and advice on looking for the signs of a tick infestation.
Signs of tick infestations
The most obvious sign of a tick infestation is seeing the pests for yourself. They may attach themselves to your pets, yourself, or other human members of your household. You may also notice the signs of tick-borne diseases. If you suspect you have been bitten by a tick and you’re carrying a disease as a result, always consult a medical professional for further advice right away.
Keeping ticks away from your property
Ticks are more likely to invade properties that suffer from structural issues, especially weaknesses in wooden structures. If you live in an older property, this means you’re more vulnerable than those who live in modern buildings. The Waltham Pest Control team always advises customers to address signs of structural disrepair as soon as they’re aware of it.
In addition to addressing structural problems, we recommend:
- Remove thick piles of leaves from around your home
- Remove piles of logs, twigs, and other types of wood from around your home
- Dispose of abandoned bird and rodent nests
