Our Unique Approach To Tick Control
Our unique approach to tick control involves a combination of methods, such as inspections and liquid treatments. We also provide recommendations for environmental modifications, such as removing leaf litter and other debris, trimming tall grasses and vegetation, and limiting wildlife activity near the property. Additionally, we offer education on personal protection measures, such as wearing protective clothing and using tick repellents when spending time outdoors. We will work with you to develop a customized plan that addresses the root causes of the infestation and provides long-term control.
We first start by thoroughly looking around your property. Especially in shaded areas, or where pets or wildlife may nest around.
We’ll carefully apply liquid residual and insect growth regulators (IGR) on all floor surfaces, paying attention to the areas your pets spend time. Not only does this approach eliminate ticks on contact, but it also interrupts the ticks breeding cycle. Best of all, this method lasts for 3+ months! By investing in professional tick control services, you can enjoy the outdoors without worrying about the risk of tick bites and the diseases they can transmit. At Freedom Pest Control, LLC, our experienced technicians are equipped with the latest tools and techniques to provide effective and lasting tick control solutions.

To learn more about how we can protect your home, read on to get the answers to frequently asked questions or contact us directly for more information!
How Did I Get Ticks?
Ticks are typically acquired by spending time in areas where they are commonly found, such as wooded areas, tall grasses, and shrubs. They may also be carried by pets or other animals that come into contact with them in these areas. Ticks attach themselves to a host, such as a human or animal, and feed on their blood for several days. It’s important to check for and remove any ticks as soon as possible to reduce the risk of disease transmission.
Are Ticks Dangerous?
Ticks can be dangerous as they are known to transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Ehrlichiosis to humans and animals. Symptoms of tick-borne illnesses can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, can be fatal. Therefore, it’s important to take preventative measures, such as wearing protective clothing and using tick repellents when spending time in tick-infested areas, and to check for and remove ticks promptly. If you develop symptoms after a tick bite, seek medical attention immediately.
If My Pets Take Medicine, Why Should I Treat My Yard?
While treating your pet for ticks is an important step in preventing infestations, it’s also important to address the environmental factors that contribute to tick populations. Ticks can live and breed in outdoor areas, such as your yard, where they can attach themselves to your pet or to you. Treating your yard for ticks can help reduce the overall tick population in your area, making it less likely that your pet will become reinfested. Additionally, it can help reduce the risk of tick-borne diseases for both you and your pet.
How Do I Get Rid Of Ticks?
To get rid of ticks, it’s important to address both the adult ticks and their eggs. This can be done through a combination of methods, such as regular lawn maintenance, including keeping grass trimmed and removing leaf litter and other debris where ticks may be found, using liquid treatments in tick-prone areas, and wearing protective clothing and using tick repellents when spending time outdoors. We at Freedom Pest Control, provide tick control services that can help reduce the risk of infestation.
How Long Do I Have To Wait Until I Can Go Outside?
At Freedom Pest Control, we specialize in safety for you, your pets, and your loved ones. After our treatment it is recommended to wait at least an hour for the product to dry, or up to two hours if it is a shady location.
