Tick Control Service Brooklyn NYC
Brooklyn County Pest Control has been proven to be the number one provider of tick control in Brooklyn. Ticks are external parasites belonging to the arachnid family and live by feeding on the blood of other animals including human beings, birds, reptiles and other mammals.
Ticks are not welcome in your home since they can spread many diseases including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Powassan virus disease, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Erhlichioisis and Lyme disease.
Types of Ticks
There are two major types of ticks; the hard and the soft. There are more than ten tick species in Brooklyn County, the majority of them being hard ticks. A hard tick has a fairly hard body and plate-like shield at the back of its head. The most common types that feed on human blood include American Dog ticks, blacklegged ticks as well as the brown dog ticks.
Nevertheless, you can also find a soft tick whose head is somehow hidden from view and has a more leathery body as compared to the hard ticks. This type of tick has a blunt head and resembles a debris or bark piece.
A hard tick climbs up a plant and then sticks out its legs once it senses a potential host coming. It detects an approaching host by sensing the hosts’ breathed out carbon dioxide, body heat as well as biochemical signals.
Once the host brushes against the tick, the latter detaches itself from the plant it was resting on and attach itself firmly to the former. The tick feeds on the host’s blood leisurely and may continue sucking the blood for several days without being noticed since the burrow they make on the other animal’s skin is painless. However, with time, a tick bite can cause skin irritation or allergies in some hosts.
How Ticks Spread Diseases
Although not every tick bite can cause the spread of a disease, both hard and soft ticks can be disease vectors. When a tick sucks blood from a host whose reservoir is infected with pathogens, there’s a likelihood of it picking up the disease-causing organisms and then transmits them to the bloodstream of another host.
Tick Control Tips
There are several tips that we usually recommend to our clients in our pursuit to reduce tick infestation Brooklyn, especially in human dwellings and among domestic animals.
- Regular trimming of the nearby grass and wood pile removal. Regular trimming of the grass surrounding your home and the removal of any nearby wood pile aim at destroying the habitats of some tick hosts such as rats, rodents, wild birds and lizards, among others.
- Avoid tick infested areas. Ticks are mostly found in grassy pastures, forested areas and prairies. If possible, restrain your pets from visiting these places and avoid them yourself as well.
- Wear light long-sleeved shirts and long pair of pants with light colors and tight-fitting cuffs when going to tick infested areas or mowing your lawn. Besides making ticks be easily noticeable while trying to climb you up, these attires also prevent them from attaching themselves to the hidden parts of your body.
- Fence your homestead to bar some tick hosts like deer, raccoons, as well as stray dogs from gaining access.
