Tick Control

Tick control is largely used to protect hosts from irritation and production losses, the development of secondarily infected sores, damage to hides and udders, toxicosis, paralysis, and, most significantly, infection with a variety of disease agents. Tick Spraying also prevents tick species and diseases from spreading to unaffected areas, regions, or continents.

We provide tick control services in Hatfield, Lansdale and Souderton PA and other cities in Montgomery County.

What We Use

Tick acaricides can be used to eliminate both the free-living and parasitic stages of ticks in the environment. We have been managed through acaricide treatment of plants in particular sites (e.g., along trails) in recreational areas in the Souderton PA & Hatfield PA to reduce the risk of Tick Control. This approach is for broad use due to environmental degradation and the cost of treating huge areas. Dog kennels, barns, and human houses may need to be treated with acaricides on a frequent basis to control the free-living stages of ixodid ticks like the kennel tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineous.

Treatment of hosts with acaricides to kill attached ixodid tick larvae, nymphs, and adults, as well as argasid tick larvae, is the most widely utilized control technique. A variety of ectoparasiticide drugs are available to treat animals against ticks. Some ectoparasiticides are used as sprays, dips/washes, spot-on treatments, or impregnated tugs and collars that are administered topically (on the skin surface). Others are ingested by mouth and circulated throughout the body. Tick Control Hatfield PA can assist you in maintaining the area in order to protect your Family & Pets & also your workplace by using our services at Montco Mosquito Defense.

How we do it

Tick Spraying can be used to prevent the spread of ticks and tick-borne diseases (quarantine), and eradication and control of tick-borne diseases were once the principal uses of acaricides. Contact Montco Mosquito Defense for more information. Rhipicephalus spp. and babesiosis were exterminated in several environmentally marginal subtropical areas, such as the southern United States and central Argentina, and southern Africa. Tickborne diseases are spreading more in the environmentally more suited tropical areas of northeastern Australia, Central America, the Caribbean Islands, and East Africa.

To control these diseases, it will be necessary to adopt endemic stability principles and to develop superior recombinant vaccines. Promising current methods include finding receptor sites on the midgut of vector ticks, as well as producing antibodies that bind to these sites, preventing ticks that have consumed tick-borne infections from becoming infected. Feeding ticks may consume the antibodies produced by cattle treated with receptor-site antigens.

What You Should Know
  • Diseases like anaplasmosis, theileriosis, and babesiosis are transmitted by ticks.

  • Surra and E fever are diseases spread by biting flies (see respective chapters).

  • Anemia and a considerable loss of output can result from heavy infestations.

  • Ticks and biting flies give the animal a lot of pain.

  • It's possible that allergic reactions will occur at the bite sites.

  • They lay a vast number of eggs, causing the population to grow even more.

Symptoms and Adverse Reactions

Most people never detect their first mosquito bites because many mosquito species are such subtle biters. Other species are vicious biters with a mildly unpleasant bite. Mosquito bites cause the following symptoms:

A little red dot in the midst of a puffy, white lump appears a few minutes after the bite.

A firm, reddish bump (or bumps) that appears a day or two after being bitten.

 

  • Swelling at the site of the bites

  • Instead of harsh lumps, there are little blisters.

  • Dark marks that resemble bruising

Symptoms of mosquito bites in children and persons with immune system abnormalities include:

 

  • Swelling and redness across a big region

  • Hives are a symptom of a low-grade fever.

  • Lymph nodes swollen

  • Headache
