Home Tick Control

Tick Control

Ticks are small, oval-shaped insects that feed on the blood of people and animals to survive.

They carry many harmful diseases and it can be very frightening when you find a tick on yourself, your child, or a pet.

Effective Tick Yard Treatment

At Fairway Lawns Pest Control, we ensure outstanding results in tick control. Our technicians are experts in the field, utilizing only top-quality products and techniques to deliver the best possible outcomes. We are committed to the safety of our employees and customers, always informing you of necessary safety measures, such as avoiding treated areas until they dry. Typically, indoor tick treatments require vacating the property for at least two hours post-treatment. Our process is efficient — we usually conduct a thorough survey and apply treatment during the same appointment, depending on the infestation’s severity and property size

Types of ticks in Arkansas include:

  • American dog ticks
  • Blacklegged ticks
  • Brown dog ticks
  • Gulf Coast ticks
  • Lone star ticks

Are Tick Bites Dangerous?

Ticks can transmit diseases to humans and pets, making them dangerous parasites. They are effective disease carriers because they attach firmly and feed slowly, often going unnoticed for a prolonged period.

Tick-borne diseases include:

  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF): Most prevalent in Arkansas, carried primarily by the American dog tick.
  • Lyme Disease: Caused by Borrelia burgdorferi and transmitted by blacklegged ticks.
  • Ehrlichiosis: Caused by Ehrlichia species and often carried by the lone star tick.
  • Anaplasmosis: Spread by blacklegged ticks.
  • Southern Tick Associated Rash Illness (STARI): A rash occurring after lone star tick bites.
  • Alpha-Gal Syndrome: A red meat allergy triggered by lone star tick bites.
  • Tularemia: Spread by the American dog tick and the lone star tick.

While not all ticks transmit diseases, medical consultation is recommended following any tick bite.

Why You Need Professional Tick Pest Control

DIY and store-bought tick treatments are less effective and potentially hazardous compared to professional applications. Our trained exterminators use specialized methods to ensure safe and thorough removal of ticks from your property.

Which Ticks Carry Lyme Disease?

In Arkansas, Lyme disease is mainly transmitted by black-legged ticks, requiring prolonged attachment to spread the disease.

When Is Tick Season?

Tick activity in Arkansas peaks from April to October, with the highest activity in the summer.

How Far Can Ticks Jump?

Ticks cannot jump or fly; they only crawl, often latching onto hosts from vegetation.
