Tick Control And Extermination

Ticks are one of the most annoying and dangerous pests around. They are small enough to go undetected and can carry life-threatening diseases. Unfortunately, Florida is no stranger to these irritating pests. 

Although we love the year-round sunshine and warm weather, Florida’s climate is a hotbed for ticks. Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions wants to help protect our neighbors by providing effective tick control and extermination in West Palm Beach, FL.

What Types of Ticks Can You Find in Florida?

It’s safe to say that we don’t want any kind of tick around. Unfortunately, Florida is home to more than one type of tick, including:
  • Brown dog tick: This type of tick gets its name from its preferred habitat: your dog. Brown dog ticks are typically found on dogs and can lay up to 3,000 eggs. These pests are known for transmitting diseases to dogs. 
  • American dog ticks: These are the ticks that you check for after going hiking. They latch themselves on to both animals and humans and can lay up to 6,000 eggs. 
  • Gulf Coast tick: These ticks are prevalent around the Gulf Coast states and transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

Why Controlling and Exterminating Ticks Is Important

Aside from the fact that ticks are annoying, there are several reasons you should want to get rid of them. 

1. They are difficult to remove.

Typically, you can remove ticks with a good pair of tweezers. However, ticks like to bury their heads and mouthparts deep into your skin. When removing a tick, you want to make sure that the head comes with it.

2. They spread diseases to both you and your furry friend. 

In most cases, a tick bite results in minor irritation and redness. In severe cases, ticks can spread Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, and Lyme disease. Although diseases transmitted by ticks are curable, they can cause serious side effects that require immediate and extensive medical attention if left unchecked for too long.
