Dallas Tick & Flea Control

Nationwide, the number of illnesses linked to flea and tick bites is on the rise. Fleas are prolific breeders, making infestations extremely common, and a single tick bite can lead to Lyme disease and other conditions which can be life-altering. If you are dealing with these issues on your property, or suspect you might have a problem, you're likely searching for effective flea and tick control in Dallas. ABC Home & Commercial Services has delivered results to home and business owners for over 60 years and can help you.

The Importance of Flea and Tick Control

The most common way fleas come indoors is by hitching a ride on our pets. Infestations frequently occur after a trip to the dog park, bringing these tiny pests back to your property and into your living areas. In other cases, other types of rodents or wildlife around your home can introduce fleas and ticks. This can happen when a pet owner leaves out food and water for a dog or cat and other animals help themselves without the homeowner realizing. Not only is this frustrating, but it’s also potentially dangerous considering that fleas and ticks carry harmful diseases.

Signs of a Flea Problem

When homeowners notice their pets scratching more frequently, they may begin to suspect a flea problem. However, there are several other reasons your pets may be more itchy than normal, including allergies or dermatitis. Plus, not all dogs and pets scratch when they have fleas.

If you do notice your pet seeming more irritated, look for these other indications that you may have an issue with fleas:

Due to how quickly a flea problem can turn into a full-blown infestation, the best course of action is often to promptly call in a pest control professional who can advise you on next steps.

What to expect at your initial visit

At ABC, we use a holistic approach to address flea infestations. We start by treating the inside of your home and your yard and then apply scientifically-proven solutions in your attic and crawl spaces. Since our technicians need a few hours to fully treat your property and for the products to dry, we ask that our customers and their pets be away from the home during these service calls.

You can expect your ABC tick control professional to:

Since these treatment solutions cannot penetrate flea cocoons, ABC technicians use products that contain an insect growth regulator so that any flea eggs that do hatch won’t fully develop into adults. For that reason, we usually schedule a follow-up appointment after the initial treatment to ensure these treatments have effectively halted the reproductive cycle.

At ABC, we pride ourselves on taking care of your home as if it were our own. Whether you suspect a flea infestation or a tick problem, we are happy to help. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Fleas are prolific breeders. Females lay between 20 and 50 eggs a day, which explains why infestations can sometimes seem to appear out of nowhere. Our flea and tick control services generally include a follow-up appointment to eliminate any eggs that might have hatched after our initial service call.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come to treat my problem?

At ABC, we understand that fleas can quickly turn into a nuisance for you and your pets and that the consequences of a tick bite are serious. Therefore, if you have a problem with either of these pests on your property, contact us and we will schedule an inspection as soon as possible. In some cases, we can even give you an estimate over the phone.

Can you help me with a tick problem?

ABC’s technicians can create a treatment plan targeted to ticks on your property. While ticks are more commonly found outdoors, many homeowners adopt a preventative approach given the serious risks these creatures pose to our health and our families.

Does ABC offer a guarantee for flea control services?

In most cases, ABC’s flea control services include a follow-up appointment to check for any flea eggs that may have hatched after our initial service call. We may recommend ongoing services depending on the severity and the extent of your pest problem. In these situations, we will return to perform additional treatments in between your regularly scheduled appointments if you aren’t seeing results.

In order for us to perform effective flea control treatments, technicians will check to make sure our customers complete a set of tasks prior to our initial service call. This pre-treatment checklist may vary, depending on your particular problem, but generally includes:

  • Cleaning floors, which may include sweeping, mopping or vacuuming
  • Tidying up your yard, mowing your grass, raking up leaves and cleaning up any excess vegetation
  • Tidying up around your home and minimizing clutter
  • Depending on the advice given by your pest control professional, either cleaning or replacing pet bedding
  • Taking your pet or pets to the veterinarian to put them on a flea treatment plan

Can’t I just treat fleas on my own?

Although flea control products are available for residential use, many are not particularly effective. For example, flea bombs are a common treatment method among homeowners. These products often end up causing more harm to humans than fleas, as fleas will simple be driven deeper into hiding spots, leaving a layer of chemicals on many household surfaces. Since these products are unable to penetrate flea cocoons, many homeowners wind up dealing with fleas again once the eggs mature into adults.

Also, if your problem is linked to flea-infested animals that are living on your property, such as raccoons or mice, then a flea control product won’t target the root cause of the issue. ABC’s trained technicians will apply targeted treatments on your property and will provide you with advice on how to prevent a future infestation.

What impact do the treatments you use have on my kids, pets and the environment?

ABC is a family-run business, so our top priority is the families of our customers. We have spent decades researching and testing products available to pest control professionals to choose only those that we would use on our own home. In addition, the products we select are specially formulated for residential use, and part of our customized treatment plan includes calculating the lowest concentration of chemicals we can apply to be low-impact and effective. When we come to your home, we would be happy to address any questions you have regarding the products we use or our treatment plans.
