Ticks are parasites that feed off human blood and animal blood. Unfortunately, they’re just a fact of life in the Spokane area, especially in the spring and summer. While everyone knows ticks are a nuisance, it’s important to understand that they can also spread diseases. Eden Advanced Pest Technologies provides safe and effective tick control services to protect you, your family, and your pets year-round.
Types of Ticks in Eastern WA
The most common ticks in Eastern Washington state include:
- Blacklegged tick
- American dog tick
- Rocky Mountain wood tick
Ticks can transmit serious illnesses such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Babesiosis. While ticks are commonly found in areas with thick vegetation and dense brush, they are also found in backyards, increasing your risk for bites and infestations.
Having your yard treated for ticks by a pest control company early on can help you reduce the risk of a tick infestation.
