Flea and Tick Control in New Jersey
Fighting a flea or tick infestation in your central NJ home or yard can be extremely stressful. Fleas and ticks are two pests known to carry human disease. Fleas living outdoors are brought into the home via household pets. Ticks are also carried into the home on pets but are often brought into the home on human clothing or by hitching a ride on the hair of humans. Ticks remain fairly undetectable unless they are seen, or until the body begins to react at the site of a tick bite.
Most homeowners typically try home remedies at first. If the problem is new and slight, it may be possible to contain the spread and to prevent an infestation. It is important to note that most home remedies are successful only in killing the adult fleas or ticks. They may be effective in the short term but as new batches of eggs hatch, the problem occurs again and again. The use of a professional pest extermination company is recommended for quick, effective, thorough and long-term treatment. We offer free consultations and have 40+ years of experience for flea and tick control and extermination in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
