Even in the most serene areas, the Thunder Bay district is a hot zone for pest activity. With so much natural beauty, tons of residents are keen to spend their days out in the sunshine. This might sound great on paper, but every hike or walk can mean bug bites and bad news.
Whether you are going to get the mail or wandering through a wooded area can mean being turned into a blood meal. Luckily, the experts at Toodaloo have a solution for you! Our Thunder Bay tick control services help to kick pests off of your property in all-natural and pain-free way.
Whenever the weather is right, ticks and other insects are in full swing. An uptick in temperature means an “up” in tick populations. You might not notice them, but there are intrusive insects hiding out in the woods or hunkered down right around the corner. The unfortunate truth is that when it comes to warm weather, insects are problematic all season long.
Certain bugs are quick to sink their teeth into a pet or human host, leaving behind a red spot or itchy welt behind. Bites sound bad enough on their own, but tick bites make things even worse! A chomp from a wood tick can transit Lyme disease bacteria.
Wood ticks skulk out in tall grass, waiting for an opportunity to turn passersby into their next blood meal. More than leaving bite marks behind, these biting bugs are known to transmit disease. Lyme disease is probably the most noted of the tick-borne diseases, but it is not the only one. Rocky Mountain spotted fever is common throughout the southern parts of Canada and into the United States.
One of the first things that most people do when coming home following an outing is to go through a little bit of home inspection. A standard tick check involves running an eye over skin and checking to see if there are any pests latched on. This is a necessity, especially in a high-risk area for Lyme disease but it is not enough to keep you safe.
Whether you are working with wood or blacklegged ticks, there is only so far that standard control methods can get you. Most pest control techniques rely on harsh chemicals to ward off pests indoors. When you want to prevent ticks from taking over your outdoor space, our Toodaloo technicians have got you covered.
Instead dealing with a pest problem as it happens, one of the key elements of a great result is foresight. Being reactionary can help for the moment but being proactive means having an advantage. By creating an unappealing environment for pests, our specialists encourage them to find a new home, leaving yours!
Instead of firing up spray guns and loading them with insecticides, Toodaloo technicians have created a compound of essential oils and other natural deterrents to create a barrier between bugs and your grass. Spray treatments can last for up to three weeks at a time and can be reapplied over and over without damage.
These treatments are great for yards but can be used for spaces small and large. Every property type, from backyards and restaurant patios, all the way to sports fields, event centers and even campgrounds, our team has got you covered! When you need results for a single weekend, camping trip and just a pest-free summer, Toodaloo can help.
Choosing local service means getting the best results in the best time frame possible. Each member of the Toodaloo team understands the unique challenges facing property owners in your area, so there is no guesswork involved. Why be another number on a call sheet when you can have the support of a friend and neighbour?
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.
