Prevent ticks and fleas from infesting your lawn in Erie County and Niagara County, NY this season!
Fleas and ticks are a major concern in Western New York, especially in the wooded areas of your property. We provide professional treatments for customers in the Orchard Park, Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, and many other Erie County and Niagara County areas to greatly reduce the infestation of fleas and ticks. Your family and pets need to be protected from the nuisance and diseases that fleas and ticks can spread. Viruses such as yellow fever, bacterial infections like Lyme disease, and parasites like Malaria can all be transmitted by fleas and ticks.
Fleas can infest your lawn and cause problems for you and your family, including your pets and children. If not treated, fleas can cause significant health issues, including:
- Blood loss
- Tape warm, in some cases
It is important to have a flea prevention plan in place to protect your home, your friends, and your family (including the furry ones!) from fleabites. Our professional treatments have low toxicity and are extremely effective at fighting both fleas and ticks in your yard!
In the Erie County and Niagara County, NY area, there are three major types of ticks. Each tick comes with its own set of concerns and needs to be eliminated as much as possible from your yard.
- Deer Tick - The deer tick is the most well-known tick as it is the carrier of the bacterium that spreads Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that needs immediate attention or can pose severe and chronic health risks to the infected individual.
- American Dog Tick - This tick has a bacterium that spreads Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
- Lone Star Tick - This common New York tick is a carrier for Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME), which causes an acute infection.
Where Do You Find Ticks?
Ticks love shady, wooded spots. The more time spent hiking in the woods, gardening, or playing in wooded areas in your yard, will pose a greater risk of being bit by fleas and ticks. It is important to do a thorough check of skin and clothes immediately after leaving these areas.
Ticks are most active during early spring through summer/early fall. Be extra cautious in shady and wooded areas during this time of the year!
