Flea and Tick Control in The Bay Area

tick control

Spotting fleas and ticks is almost impossible unless you know what to look for. These pests are tiny, allowing them to hide almost anywhere both indoors and out—in shrubs, on the tips of grass blades, between carpet fibers, and in pet beds.

When you partner with us for flea and tick control, we will:

  • Search your property for probable hiding areas, such as dense vegetation and nearby wooded areas.
  • Look for signs of wildlife that could be introducing fleas and ticks to your property, such as deer or rodents.
  • Treat both the interior and exterior of your home to eliminate existing pests while creating a barrier against future infestations.
  • Schedule two follow-up appointments to re-inspect and treat again, ensuring even the most well-hidden fleas and ticks are gone.

Protect Your Family

Fleas carry pathogens that cause the plague, flea-borne typhus, cat scratch fever, and transmit parasites like tapeworms. Ticks can cause illnesses like Lyme disease, tularemia, and ehrlichiosis. Pets are especially susceptible to skin problems - from incessant itching, which can cause hair loss and infections. While that sounds scary, our flea and tick control is here to give you an added layer of protection against these pests, letting you safely spend time outside.


Tips to Keep Fleas and Ticks Away

Professional treatment is the most effective way to keep fleas and ticks out of your yard. That being said, there are a few preventative measures you can take against these biting pests. 

Here’s what you can do:

  • Mow your grass regularly: Fleas and ticks love the shade that tall grass provides. Keeping your grass short allows the sun to shine all the way to the ground, leaving fleas and ticks with no shade.
  • Avoid over-watering: These pests thrive in moist environments, so an over-watered lawn is the perfect home for them.
  • Remove debris: Piles of lumber, lawn clippings, leaves, and trash are perfect homes for fleas and ticks.
  • Limit wildlife: Deer, squirrels, rabbits, rodents, and other wild animals likely have fleas and ticks. Keeping them out prevents pests from hitching a ride into your space.
