Ticks are one of the types of pests that Frisco homeowners may have to deal with in their yards. Ticks in Frisco are known as obligate blood feeders, meaning that they need blood to survive; they are always on the hunt for it. Ticks will definitely be interested in you if they are in your yard. They can crawl onto you without being detected and their bites are painless. Unless you are carefully looking for them, a tick can remain on your body for an extended period while feeding. This may result in an itchy place on your skin, and it also introduces you to the risk of serious diseases. In fact, ticks are the only place behind mosquitoes in spreading diseases all over the world.

If you are dealing with ticks in your yard, All-Safe Pest & Termite can help. We are experts in all manner of Frisco pest control, and we can help.

What Are Ticks?

Ticks are small arachnids in the mite family. They are external parasites that attach to the outside of their hosts. They are oval or pear-shaped and have eight legs. Ticks locate potential hosts by sensing body heat, vibrations, odor, and moisture. They do not fly and transfer to their victims by either directly crawling on from the ground, dropping from overhanging vegetation, or transferring to the host when it brush by vegetation. Ticks inject saliva while feeding to prevent the blood in the bite area from thickening, and this is how they spread diseases. Tick bites are painless, allowing them to attach to a host unnoticed. 

Ticks are everywhere, and if they are on your property they will be highly interested in your family and your pets. All-Safe Pest & Termite can help with any tick infestation in Frisco. Contact us today for all of your pest control needs, including ticks.

Just How Dangerous Are Ticks?

When a tick feeds on a host infected with a disease-causing pathogen, it can then carry that pathogen in its body. A tick can later transfer that pathogen to new hosts when it feeds on them. Ticks are associated with the spread of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, and the Powassan virus. All of these diseases introduce you to medical considerations and some of them can be dangerous, even to the point of being fatal. Tick bites can result in brain and nervous system problems, heart issues, and severe allergies. The alpha-gal syndrome is a severe red meat allergy transmitted by ticks.

Five Simple Tips To Protect Yourself From Ticks

Given that ticks can bring a lot of problems with them when they come to your yard, here are some things that you can do to help protect yourself from ticks:

  1. Keep your hedges, shrubs, and bushes well-trimmed. Ticks love overgrown landscaping.
  2. Keep your grass cut. Ticks use taller grass to transfer to hosts.
  3. Wear long clothes outside. This makes it harder for ticks to crawl on and bite you.
  4. Wear a good repellant. Using approved pest repellants can help keep ticks away.
  5. Clean up yard debris like leaves and clippings. This eliminates tick harborage areas.

These tips can help decrease the potential that you will encounter ticks in your yard, but can’t ultimately prevent them from coming anyway. If you are struggling with ticks, All-Safe Pest & Termite can help. Get in touch with us today for help with ticks.
