We know Ticks are a problem in Western Pennsylvania
Boos offers Ticks Extermination as part of our pest control offerings. At Boo’s Bug Stoppers we realize the importance of ticks prevention. We live in a wooded setting ourselves and we don’t want to think about ticks. They are creepy, spread disease, and are frankly gross-looking. Here in Beaver County PA, they are responsible for spreading life-threatening diseases. Most people get ‘off’ with chills, nausea, and maybe a fever. But death has sometimes resulted.
Lyme Disease is a major fear
Ticks camp out on the grass where children and pets can easily be attacked by them
Ticks can be removed within 24 hours and probably prevent disease – according to the CDC
If you are bit, they will stick around for 2-3 days
It is a good idea to inspect kids and dogs from ticks after they end up in the tall grasses that are on the edge of the forest where ticks love to hang out. You can remove ticks with tweezers. The CDC also recommends that people use an insect repellent that contains at least 20% DEET. If you want to take a further step, At Boo’s Bug Stoppers we have a process that will help protect you and your family and pets
