A small amount of swelling in the area near the bite for a few days doesn’t necessarily indicate Lyme disease. Many people experience a mild allergic reaction to a tick’s saliva, but the swelling should be gone within a few days. Nevertheless, if you have a tick infestation, let Fox McAllen come to your house to with tick removal.
If the swollen spot grows and swelling persists for a week or more, this could be an early sign of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme could prevent its long-term effects. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you see early signs of Lyme disease. In the meantime, call Fox for the best tick extermination treatment.
Transmission of Lyme disease from ticks can take 24-48 hours in most cases, so by checking for ticks regularly, you can avoid many of the problems ticks cause. If you do find you have an infestation, Fox will send a certified tick exterminator -- in many cases that same day.
If you are bitten by a tick and you’re worried about a potential infection, seek medical attention right away.

Superb service, Nick called me an hour before he was coming and when I called back and asked him to come sooner he said he would be at my house soon. He arrived in about 10 minutes and completed the service before I had to leave for my doctor visit. Really appreciated him working around my schedule.
