Bug bites are no joke. Being bit by a black fly or scratching at a mosquito bite, being made into a blood meal – neither of these is a picnic! As bad as these might be, ticks are even worse. These pests are hitchhikers, latching onto human hosts and using them as a food source and a place to find shelter.
Instead of learning to live with these tiny opportunists, call Toodaloo for your Hamilton tick control needs. An all-natural approach can beat back tick populations without harsh chemicals. With results that last for weeks at a time, property owners can have a pest-free week, month or even a whole summer.
Despite their small size, there is a reason that Hamilton Public Health has deemed these tiny predators a menace. Insect bites are common and, depending on your area, can be an everyday occurrence. There are plenty of home remedies that claim to ward off ticks, but these are often just tall tales.
When confronted with unwanted pests, some people are quick to wear light coloured clothing outdoors, in the hopes of making ticks easier to spot. In the past, these extra precautions, combined with deet or Icaridin was just about all that property owners could do to keep bugs at bay. This might be helpful in the short term, but real results mean more consideration.
Tick bites are known to transmit Lyme disease and other harmful bacteria. This is the most well-known of the tick-borne diseases but there are plenty more to choose from. Whether it is Lyme or rocky mountain spotted fever, it is never a good idea to gamble with your health.
Wooded areas are an obvious stomping ground for most critters, but ticks are a sneaky bunch. Even tall grass can be home to many species of these insects. Deer ticks, black-legged ticks and even American dog ticks are hiding out in tall grasses. Instead of leaving pest control to interiors, hit bugs where it really hurts, outside!
Ticks feed on hosts as soon as they are able. While it is important to check ourselves, our children and our pets for ticks, it is even more important to create a pest-free environment. Instead of waiting for populations to shoot up, let our experts treat them at every stage of their life cycle.
Just like people, some insects have certain smells that repel them. Toodaloo technicians take advantage of this by combining these with essential oils in order to create an all-natural spray that can be applied directly to green spaces. Chemicals might cause burns, but our treatments come with a damage-free guarantee.
No one wants to have ticks lurking around their homes, but our services don’t stop there. A bug bite here or there is enough to ruin your day out, so why let it? Single day events like weddings or family picnics are always better without the threat of insects.
Because barrier sprays are all-natural, they can be re-applied over and over without damage. Each spray lasts up to three weeks but instead of waiting for the clock to run out, Toodaloo technicians revisit sites after 14-days in order to keep those insects at bay.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
