Ticks Control

If you are thinking about tick control and how to get rid of ticks around your home, you have come to the right place. One of the most dangerous pests known to man is the tick. Ticks are the last insects you want infesting your home. Even though they are small in stature, these pests should be feared. These parasitic pests are not only blood hungry but they can also transmit a number of serious diseases. For more information on how to kill Ticks or get rid of Ticks with the appropriate products, please continue to read or do not hesitate to contact us.

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. How do I get ticks out of my house.
We are using advanticx on our dog. Ther are hundreds of very small ticks on the floor and walls. How do we ge rid of the tcks in the house.
A.   We recommend using an insecticide to kill the ticks on contact. Apply Demand CS to the baseboards and the area on the floor that runs adjacent to the baseboards. We also recommend Archer IGR. Both Demand and Archer must be diluted with water before application and applied with a pump sprayer like the Chapin Gallon Sprayer.

Q. The renters in our renter house recently moved out. They had dogs and when I was cleaning the outside door today I noticed many ticks crawling under the trim around the door. We then noticed that ticks are up and down the stucco on the outside of the house. Many, many many ticks. Can they be infested in the walls? We have new renters with children moving in and I don't feel comfortable with these ticks there. Thank you.
A.   Ticks can be eradicated with an insecticide called Demand Insecticide. An IGR should be used as well to control their reproduction. Archer IGR is the recommended IGR for ticks. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email us at info@pestmall.com or call us at 1-800-788-4142.

Q. how to remove a tick
Hi, I ran across your listing looking for something else. You have in you text to contact you with questions. Do you have or can you recommend a product for an outside environment for the control or eradication of ticks? It would need to something safe to use around a school. Here lies the problem during the warmer months the play area of my sons school is loaded with ticks, the area borders the woods so that is a problem in itself. A few ticks are still turning up even this late (late December) or early in the year. I live on Virginia's Eastern Shore and the weather has been mild so far this winter. So I am very concerned about the up coming tick season being as bad or worse than in the past. I have someone with an applicators license so that is not a problem I just need a product that is effective o the ticks but safe around the children. Or if you applied on a Friday would be at safe levels by Monday morning. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thank You,
A.  

Demand CS and Archer IGR together is going to be your best formula for tick control and if you would like, you can also use granule formulas in conjunction with the spray.

For both Demand CS and Archer IGR, once the product is dry, it is safe for reentry.

Therefore, if you sprayed on Friday and the children came back the following Monday, that would be more than enough time for the product to dry and activate.

Q. Ticks!
Has this year been a particularly bad year for ticks? We have had our dog for 16 years, and starting in early winter have been battling ticks and they are in our house now! It was NEVER a problem before and we always have done the monthly tick treatments with Advantix! We are now alternating frontline with the advantix and our vet said we can use every 2 weeks intead of 4. We have shaved her and she wears a tick collar as well.and used an extermintor to the tune of 1000 dollars and still have seed ticks appearing at different areas in the home.. What more can we do? What is THE BEST thing to spray in the yard?
A.   We recommend Demand CS for ticks with the addition of Archer IGR. You should spray this around the perimeter of the yard as well as the exterior perimeter of the house. We also recommend using Bifen Granules or Talstar Granules on the lawn.

Q. tick yard control
Hello, I would like to know what is the best product to kill and control black legged ticks? Weither it be liquid or granular? I need it for my back yard. I use cyper wp for general control around and in the house. Thank you for your time.
A.   If you would like to do a lawn tick control, it would probably be best to use a type of granular. I would recommend Talstar PL. Liquid insecticides such as Conquer would work just as well, the only difference is that granulars are easier to apply in larger areas. Cyper WP would also work just as well as the liquid insecticides.

Q. ticks on humans
My husband discovered three ticks on his body and one tick on the bed (his side) and one near him on the wall. I imagine that they can only come from the dog who my husband was sharing the couch with. Earlier the dog was sleeping on my husbands side of the bed. I haven't been able to find any ticks on our dog though and I am unsure how to deal with the problem.
A.   Firstly, you do need to have your dog checked for ticks. Ticks are very small and may not be easily spotted with the naked eye and an expert will be able to better assist you with that. You also want to make sure you take your husband for a medical checkup and to remove the ticks if they have bitten him. Treat the areas both outdoor and inside with Demand CS. Outside, you want to keep the grasses short and spray the areas around your yard. Inside, treat the baseboards, and any entry points like the door frame.

Q. Tick control
I want to spray about an acre around a cabin for ticks. What are my options?
A.   You should use a micro-encapsulated insecticide because it will give you a longer residual time outdoors. We recommend using Lambdastar 9.7. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. ticks in the home
I found 2 ticks in my room about 2 weeks ago. I was told to use permethrin sfr spray inside and out. I did with much luck. But last night and today I have found 2 more ticks. Is this the most effective chemical to use inside and outside of my home? Thank you!
A.   What you apply will really depend on where the infestation is. We usually recommend FenvaStar EcoCap, which is a liquid concentrate insecticide. It must be diluted in water before it is applied and the solution can be applied with a pump sprayer. FenvaStar EcoCap cannot be applied all over the furniture, but it can be applied on the frame of the furniture, in areas where you do not come in contact with frequently. You should also apply Archer IGR with the FenvaStar EcoCap, which is an insect growth regulator. An IGR does not have a killing effect, but for insects like ticks that reproduce quickly, it is recommended to use an IGR because it will inhibit them from developing physically, therefore, prohibiting them from reproducing. Archer IGR must also be diluted in water and applied with a pump sprayer.
