With years of experience, top-quality supplies, and a proven method for disrupting these pests, we are proud to deliver quick and effective results to protect your home.
Our expert service destroys adult ticks and stifles their breeding process. We accomplish this through a comprehensive approach that includes property inspections and barrier treatments. We also provide homeowners with crucial DIY tips for preventing tick bites. To start, we’d like to debunk a few common tick-related myths.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
Here are four common mistakes to avoid:
Myth #1: You should smother the tick with soap or petroleum jelly. In reality, adding any liquid or substance to your tick bite will only cause the attached tick to panic and release its guts onto the wound, increasing your odds of developing Lyme disease.
Myth #2: You should take a lighter and burn the tick until it lets go. Ticks have a hard exoskeleton, so you’ll have a very hard time burning the creature without first lighting your own skin on fire.
Myth #3: Take antibiotics right away. A tick bite is not an automatic diagnosis of Lyme disease, so there’s no need to start treating an infection you probably don’t even have. Only take antibiotics once your doctor has confirmed your infection and prescribed them.
All this misinformation leads people away from the simple truth that it takes over 24 hours for a tick to infect you with Lyme disease. If you discover a tick attached to your body, you’ll have plenty of time to remove the tick carefully with a pair of tweezers.
