Tick Pest Control to Make Your NJ Home and Yard Safe Again

Keeping your family and your pets healthy and safe is the most important thing you can do. But ticks that can be picked up almost anywhere can carry some of the worst diseases imaginable. So ask yourself: is your home tick and pest free?

No one likes the sight of a tick. These 8-legged, tiny arachnids are generally smaller than a poppy seed, and can grow to over a centimeter in length after feeding. Tick larvae are even smaller, not even measuring up to a single millimeter in length.

Unlike other pests around the house, ticks are unable to jump or fly; the most that some species can do is hop. The tick pest can come into the house by clinging onto skin, loose clothing, and animal fur. Even if you don’t have a dog, other unwanted animals in your home (such as mice, rats and raccoons living nearby) might be bringing them in.

Hard to kill and even harder to spot, ticks are more than just a yucky nuisance. They carry over 15 different infections and viruses, such as Lyme disease. These infections and viruses can lead to a whole host of symptoms of diseases like Lyme disease, particularly those that target the nervous system and the cardiovascular system.

A loose tick wandering around your home can lead to your relatives feeling symptoms like skin rash, joint pain, headache, fever, fatigue, and more. In just no time at all, the infestation can get out of control.

So what are you waiting for? If you have seen signs of ticks around your home or suspect there might be an infestation somewhere, call PermaKill Exterminating for your permanent tick control solution today. Get your situation under control with PermaKill Exterminating pest control services.

Ticks 101: Understand the truth behind this unexpected menace.

The Basics

 Naturally found in highly vegetated areas, such as a park or an unkempt yard, ticks have evolved to live comfortably alongside pets and humans in homes. When not found underneath the collar, in the paws, or burrowed in the fur of your pets, ticks take shelter in dark crevices and cracks of the household, coming out only to feed.

One common question we get is: what is the difference between ticks and fleas? While both pests are parasites and transmit their own diseases, ticks are categorized as arachnids (eight legs as a full-grown adult) and fleas are categorized as wingless insects.

The differences between these two are marginal: both can feed on human blood, both sneak into houses by clinging onto clothing, fur and skin, and both are tiny and difficult to find. One major difference is that while ticks can feed on blood during all parts of its life cycle, fleas can only feed on blood once it has become an adult.

Remember: ticks are notoriously difficult to kill.

  • -  They have the ability to survive in below 32 degrees
  • -  They can wait for weeks between meals to find the right host
  • -  They have various outlets to sense their hosts – body odor, vibrations, breath, moisture, body heat, and more
  • -  They can survive being squeezed and crushed if not done properly

Types of Ticks in New Jersey

  1. American Dog Ticks: These are the most commonly found ticks in NJ, and can usually be found on dogs (but they can also be found on other mammals, including humans, making them extremely dangerous). American Dog ticks are known for spreading Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, meaning it is essential to deal with these ticks as soon as possible with a professional pest control service team.
  2. Brown Dog Ticks: While brown dog ticks thankfully don’t use humans as hosts, they still find themselves commonly infesting human homes. They like hanging around dark crevices and cracks, and are mostly spread by dogs at kennels and veterinary hospitals.
  3. Lone Star Ticks: Lone Star ticks are renowned for their aggressive behavior, as they travel from one place to another with relative ease. They can be found on both humans and household animals, and are extremely dangerous as they can carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Lyme disease, and Tularemia.
  4. Deer Ticks: Deer ticks are commonly picked up in grassy or wooded areas, and use both animals and humans as hosts. Deer ticks are known as the primary carriers of Lyme Disease, but be warned: you don’t have to go far into the wilderness to find deer ticks, as the deer tick can be found in any backyard property with tall grasses and a few trees.

Signs of Tick Infestation

  • A large number of ticks on you or your pet (check your pet’s paws, dense fur areas, and underneath the collar)
  • You or your family are experiencing unexplained fever, rash, fatigue, headaches, body aches, or chills, and possibly the signs of tick bites
  • You see tiny black dots around cracks or crevices in your home or yard; these are the eggs
  • You are experiencing the signs above after having gone outside with your pet or spent the day in the woods or the yard

How Tick Removal Works

DIY tick removal solutions include vacuuming up the ticks once you locate them, and sealing the bag immediately afterwards. The bag should be discarded or burned outside of the home. To be sure, thoroughly wash any clothing that might have had contact with the ticks.

With PermaKill Exterminating’s pest control team, we offer professional tick control service and tick prevention treatment services, guidance, and education. The treatment program will depend on the severity of your tick infestation and what exactly needs to be done to get the situation under control.

If you have a yard with tall grass and heavy brush on or near your property, the yard will need to be treated with pesticides. We might also require a mice and rat treatment program if necessary, as rodents are common carriers of ticks.
