Fox Pest Control’s McAllen Tick Exterminator Service

Rats are large, disease carrying rodents, and you do not want them in your home. Particularly if you have pets or children, a rat infestation can be dangerous. They will come into your home and destroy practically everything, and touching a dead rat or rat droppings can be enough to transfer diseases to pets and children. In the warmth and safety of your McAllen home, rats can live up to three years, and with the average female rat giving birth to 8-10 babies at a time, your home can be overrun quickly. Fox Pest Control is here to fight your rodent problems for you. If you have a rat infestation, call today to receive prompt service and removal.

Signs of a Tick Infestation

You might already know you have a tick infestation, but here is the most common sign tick exterminators look for in McAllen.

Sightings

Infact, the only way to know if you have ticks is to actually see them. They appear like black or dark brown dots, usually around your waistline, around your ankles, or in your hair.

Things You Need To Know About Ticks

  • Ticks are external parasites that latch onto the skin of their hosts and suck their blood. 
  •  In order for a tick to fully develop into an adult, it needs to consume blood multiple times. 
  • Adult ticks have eight legs.
  • Ticks vary in colors but are shaped like an oval. 
  • You’ll see them most often in warm, moist areas, especially places that are dense in vegetation and trees. 
  • Unfortunately, these little arachnids can be quite dangerous, as they carry multiple diseases including:
    • Lyme disease
    • Babesiosis
    • Colorado tick fever
    • Rocky Mountain spotted fever 
    • Anaplasmosis
    • Rickettsiosis
    • Ehrlichiosis

Helpful Tick Prevention Tips:

  • Keep grass cut short
  • Clean up the yard: clear away branches, leaves, and other debris
  • Avoid walking your pet through wooded areas and tall grass, and check your pet for ticks after walks

Does a swollen tick bite mean I have Lyme disease?

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.

How do I know if I have Lyme disease from a tick bite?

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.

How can I prevent Lyme disease from tick bites?

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.

I ran into Nick at Walmart, up on introducing myself as a customer he apologized and explained he was having some difficulties with his equipment. As he continued to repair his equipment I asked him some questions and he gladly answered every question I had and provided me with the information I requested. Before I left him he apologized saying he was sorry if he was being short with me but he had to fox his equipment so that he could finish his services for the day. These guys do not get the appreciation they deserve, Nick seemed to be working very hard to fix his fear and was very helpful to me at the same time. Great customer service, I would gladly recommend this company to anyone looking for a pest control company.
