How do I know if I need tick removal?

There’s more to tick removal than waiting to spot a tick on yourself or your pets. If you recognise any of the following waring signs, professional tick control may be the best solution.

  • Symptoms: If you develop symptoms such as itchiness, redness, swelling, or pain at the site of a suspected tick bite.
  • Visible Tick: If you can see a tick attached to your skin, it’s important to remove it promptly.
  • Tick-Borne Disease Symptoms: If you experience symptoms like fever, rash, fatigue, or muscle aches after a potential tick exposure, seek medical attention.
  • Recent Outdoor Activity: If you’ve been hiking, camping, or spending time in tall grass, forests, or bushland where ticks are prevalent.

Tick season corresponds to the ticklifecycle. Tick larvae (grass ticks) are common in autumn and winter. Adult ticks are more commonly found in spring and summer. All life cycles of tick require blood for feeding, making it important you stay on top of tick control all-year round.

Professional tick control typically involves a systematic approach. The specific methods and techniques used may vary depending on the type of ticks, the extent of the infestation, and the location (indoor or outdoor). Here’s a general overview of the steps involved:

Inspection and Assessment: The first step is to conduct a thorough inspection of the affected area to determine the extent of the tick infestation. This may involve examining outdoor spaces like yards and gardens or indoor areas like homes, businesses, or pet kennels.

Identification: Pest control professionals will identify the type of ticks present, as different tick species may require different control methods.

Customised Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment and tick species identified, the professionals will develop a customised treatment plan. This plan will outline the methods and products to be used, as well as any necessary safety precautions.

Chemical Control: In cases of outdoor tick infestations, pest control professionals may apply tick control products. These products can include tick-specific pesticides or insecticides. The choice of product will depend on the tick species and the severity of the infestation.

Indoor Control: If ticks have infested indoor spaces, pest control professionals will use appropriate methods to treat these areas. This may include applying residual sprays, dusts, or insect growth regulators (IGRs) to cracks, crevices, and other hiding places.
