Tick Control: How to kill Ticks

Ticks can be categorized into two different types: soft and hard. The distinguishing factor between the two is that the hard tick has a thick back plate called the scutum and its head is clearly visible. The soft tick is actually the more dangerous one due to its immediate disease transmission within minutes of their bite. Some common diseases associated with both ticks are Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and relapsing fever. In addition, tick paralysis may also occur which will develop slowly and could potentially lead to death if not removed and treated immediately. An antiseptic is suggested to prevent further infection and reduce skin irritation.

Tick Removal: Get rid of Ticks

For most of their life, ticks stay on the ground waiting for the right host to come along. Due to their inability to run, fly and jump, ticks have to rely on their climbing ability to crawl onto higher levels where they could easily fall onto their suitable host. Ticks will feed on just about any animal including reptiles, amphibians and birds.

How to Get Rid of Ticks

Usually, ticks will part ways from their host after replenishing their thirst. It is important to apply insecticides inside and around your home. For outdoor tick control, the following active ingredients in pesticides are suggested: carbaryl, cyfluthrin, diatomaceous earth, esfenvalerate, eugenol, permethrin and tetrachlorvinphos. For indoor tick control, it is recommended to use pesticides with any of the following active ingredients: allethrin, cypermethrin, imoprothrin, pyrethrin and tralomethrin. Ideal areas to treat for effective tick control and management are on door and window frames, cracks and crevices, and similar areas where ticks may choose to reside. If you have a pet, be sure to pay special attention to your animal’s bedding area. Keep in mind, when ticks are not feeding, they often prefer hiding. Therefore, they rarely come in contact with treated areas before the application wears off. Often people get discouraged by this when trying to manage their indoor ticks. We recommend multiple applications (up to three times) after initial appliance to ensure effective control.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
