Ticks are among the most concerning pests for anyone on the East Coast. Although they’re well-known for spreading Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, they can transmit many other illnesses, including babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness, Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever, and tularemia.

To provide the best protection against ticks and other common pests, as well as the diseases they carry, turn to Home Paramount Pest Control. We’re the premier pest management company on the East Coast, and we serve everywhere from Pennsylvania, Delaware, and the Washington, DC, area to North and South Carolina and Florida.

Our family-owned company has been in business since 1939 and offers excellent service with impressive customer reviews, free inspections, and flexible financing options.

Signs You May Have a Tick Infestation

Before they have fed, ticks can be as small as a poppy seed or just over 1/32 of an inch. This makes them hard to spot, especially since they like to hide in warm and moist areas, such as the scalp, armpits, or groin, and the fur of pets.

To minimize the risk of tick-borne disease, look out for these signs of a tick infestation near your home:

  • Visible ticks: Watch carefully for black spots, brown spots, or visible ticks on your family members and pets after being outdoors. Ticks can range from 1/32 to over 3/8 of an inch in size and swell when feeding.
  • Bites or a rash: Be wary of any suspected bites, red spots, or rashes. Tick bites will often resemble a bullseye, with the bite in the center, but not always.
  • Ticks in your yard: If you notice ticks outside your home or in your yard, be extra vigilant anytime a family member or a pet goes outdoors, and wear long-sleeve shirts and full-length pants when possible.
  • Rodent activity: Rodents often carry ticks that can spread disease, so if you notice rodents around your home, rodent droppings, or nesting activity, contact a professional to remove them.
  • Signs of illness: If you notice signs of a possible tick-borne illness, such as fever, fatigue, chills, lethargy, body aches, or joint pain, see a doctor as soon as possible, especially if it’s accompanied by a suspected tick bite or rash.

Tick Control Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions we receive about ticks include:

Are ticks dangerous?

Yes, ticks can spread Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and various other illnesses, so it’s important to find them and remove them as quickly as possible. It can take up to 36 hours for the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease to cause an infection.

Where are ticks most common?

They’re found mostly in grassy and wooded areas, where there’s moisture, shade, and plenty of places to hide. A clean, dry, and well-manicured yard can help keep ticks away from your home.

Where do ticks usually bite?

Ticks prefer to hide in warm and moist areas, like the scalp, armpits, or groin. These areas provide a suitable habitat, as well as cover while they bite and feed.

How do you safely remove a tick?

The best method to remove a tick is to use a pair of tweezers and grasp it around the mouthparts or head, as close to the skin as possible, being careful not to crush it. Pull it out in one quick motion, straight upward, and disinfect the area using rubbing alcohol or soap and water.

Don’t use methods like heat, vinegar, alcohol, or petroleum jelly to attempt to force the tick to back out, as these may increase your chances of infection.
