Tick and Flea Extermination
Ticks and fleas bite both humans and animals for blood as a source of food. These painful and itchy bugs are primarily associated with pets like cats and dogs. Ticks mostly hang on their host's skin while fleas hide in shrubs waiting for prey to pounce on.
Fleas are hard to see due to their small size and their movement. The only way to notice fleas is when you are bitten by one or when fleas infest your pets.
With both tick and flea extermination, it is wise to seek professional pest control help from a company like Saela. We can help you find the breeding source of the pest. We know what to use and where to use it.
Source of Fleas and Ticks
Ticks prefer a moist, warm environment. Sources of pest infestation are numerous, but can include when your pet coming in contact with other pets that ticks or fleas. Contact between your pet and other animals might occur when you have taken your pet to the park, grooming parlors or board homes.
Fleas and ticks are also incredibly common to find in one’s backyard where there’s tall grass or semi-wooded area. If there’s anywhere a raccoon or squirrel might live, fleas and ticks can be there, too.
What Attracts Fleas and Ticks?
If you are not a professional tick and flea exterminator, it’s all about knowing where to look. When you contact a professional like Saela, we look carefully in all their favorite places. When fleas find their way inside, they attach on sites like underarms, the groin or in your pet's fur but can quickly spread to other surfaces.
How to Notice Fleas and Ticks
We think the easiest way to detect ticks is by observing the physical presence of ticks on your pets or around your home. Other signs of ticks include:
- Having a rush or skin infection,
- You or your loved ones suffering from tick-borne illnesses like headaches, chills, and body aches,
- Developing blisters, having a burning sensation and having irritating bites that swell.
Disease Transmitted by Ticks and Fleas
Fleas and ticks transmit disease when they bite you or your pet, and your blood mixes with the pest's blood, which harbors bacteria and viruses. Illnesses transmitted by ticks include Lyme disease, and rocky mountain fever.
How to Avoid Ticks and Fleas
When a professional has dealt with your tick and flea infestation, it is wise to try and maintain the benefits as long as possible. You can avoid these pests by bathing your pets regularly, especially when they contact other pets.
Housekeeping is essential and your best defense against these pests since ticks and fleas can hide even in carpets and curtains. Aside from professional active repellents, regular vacuuming of carpets and rugs is your best defense against having a flea or tick infestation.
Why You Should Contact a Professional
Ticks are easy to spot; however, fleas are another case. To deal with fleas, you need to contact a professional from Saela who, via our training, will be able to notice the breeding ground of the fleas. There’s more to eliminating fleas and ticks than just using a product. The knowledge that training provides on what type of environment and climate account for is invaluable.
The larva can be hard to deal with since they are prone to pesticides and hard to locate. However, at Saela we perform a multi-product treatment. An adulticipe covers adult fleas, while another effectively sterilizes the larvae. Both of these have no effect on people or pets, making it a safe process for you and your family.
The time spent trying to do it yourself can be saved with professional services. That time is better spent with family, friends, and on things that are more enjoyable than a flea or tick problem. Saela has the knowledge, products and techniques needed to save you time and energy.
Why Choose Saela for Your Tick and Flea Eradication
At Saela, we value your family's health; that is why we utilize products that are not harmful. When products are first applied, you may not notice immediate effects. Our flea and tick control product is non-repellent, meaning the insect cannot detect it until it has already come in contact with a lethal amount.
This means a flea can go about its life and accumulate enough product to kill it without being agitated to a new area. With older products, fleas could almost immediately feel something was wrong — similar to a your or I getting a rash or poison ivy — and vacate the area to avoid getting a lethal dose. Our new chemistry allows for more effective and faster removal.
Fleas or ticks make things uncomfortable. Deciding to contact a specialist usually comes when you can’t stand it anymore but that happens fast so if you see any sign of them, act fast. It’s best to be proactive and protect you and your family before these pests show up. Many companies make you wait a week or even longer before they can get to you, which just provides more time for nests to get settled in.
A long waiting period isn’t the case for Saela since we respond within 24 hours of contact, and we dispatch a specialist to inspect and start dealing with fleas or ticks immediately.
Stop your search for tick removal and flea extermination with just one call to Saela! Pest control may not be the most exciting or fun thing to think about, but there’s a reason for it to be done. The peace of mind that comes with a pest-free home is invaluable and gives you time to create loving memories in your home that center on your family.
