There is never a better time to be outdoors then when the weather is hot, and the sky is clear. An ideal day for a hike is an ideal time for ticks to latch on to human hosts. What might start out as a nice family outing or a playdate in the yard can end in bites and maybe even illness. Instead of letting insects take over your property, call a Toodaloo technician to clear your property with specialized tick control programs.
Unlike other insects, tick bites often go unnoticed at first. Something painful like a bee sting will draw attention right away but small bites fly under the radar. The trouble is that, more than just making humans into blood meals, they are known to transmit disease. During Summer, tick bites pose a threat to animals and humans all season long.
Everyone knows that tick populations are common throughout wooded areas, but they do not stop there. Ticks spread in tall grass, meaning that homes, commercial properties and even event centers can be home to thousands of pests, spreading bite-borne diseases, like Lyme disease or rocky mountain spotted fever.
When it comes to these tick-borne diseases, they do not always come on strong with symptoms but can take years to develop. Tick control services work to prevent insects from hunkering down and the only way to do that is to create an unwelcoming environment for pests.
When it comes to outdoor pest control practices, control and prevention is the name of the game. Household pets, like the family dog are easy targets for insects. Without proper inspection, Fido can be carrying a dozen unwanted insects indoors. Far from basic collars and tick repellents, Toodaloo works smarter to keep the bugs away.
Just like any other insect, ticks have a specific set of likes and dislikes and our experts use that to their advantage. There are plenty of options for chemical treatments available at garden centers and hardware stores, but these can be harmful to humans and dangerous for green spaces. Our specialists avoid harsh sprays with an all-natural approach.
By combining essential oils and other natural deterrents, eco-friendly pest control prevents ticks from settling down at any stage of the life cycle. Deer ticks are the most commonly mentioned species of tick out there, but our sprays treat any and all species.
Whether you are looking to prevent ticks from taking over your space for a day, week or month, our services can accommodate that. Pest control services are customizable to your space. On average, sprays can last up to three weeks, making them perfect for weekend events like weddings, family reunions, or camping trips.
There is no limit to the amount of space that can be treated with some elbow grease and Toodaloo technique. Instead of waiting for the clock to run out, our specialists are available for reapplication every 14 days. Choosing local services means that your property is never put on the back burner. Clients have access to resources through aftercare services, or by just grabbing a phone and calling in with your questions.
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.
