Tick Control

What to Expect From Your Orkin Technician

Don’t let ticks get a free ride.

There are a few tick species commonly found in the United States. Many of them can cause skin irritation, but they can also cause a variety of medical problems for you, your family, and your pets, including Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

Ticks are hard to control because they live in areas with dense vegetation such as woods or areas with a lot of bushes. Often an infestation can go unnoticed until they show up on pets or people. Outside, keeping your grass short and removing tall weeds can help. Orkin will assess, treat, and monitor your home and yard to help keep ticks from hanging around.

Step One - A Free Tick Inspection (Assess)

Your Orkin technician can provide a tick inspection for your home and yard. In addition to looking for current infestation problems, your technician can also check for ideal spots that may encourage ticks to hang out, like heavily wooded areas, tall grass, or even areas with high moisture.

Step Two - Getting the Job Done (Implement)

After the initial inspection is complete, your technician will discuss a comprehensive plan with you. If needed, part of the plan will include proper treatment to areas frequented by ticks. Your Orkin technician can also advise you on possible ways to prevent ticks from hitchhiking back into your home.

Step Three - A Year-Round Solution (Monitor)

After the first treatment, your Orkin technician can create an ongoing tick treatment plan as well as give advice on how to help keep ticks at bay. Because of weather changes, your tick treatment may have to be reapplied periodically based on your area and unique home.
