The Importance of Tick & Flea Control

In Livingston, fleas commonly find their way indoors by hitching a ride on our beloved pets. Trips to the dog park often result in infestations, as these pesky parasites latch onto our furry companions and infiltrate our living spaces. Moreover, other wildlife or rodents in the vicinity can unwittingly introduce fleas and ticks. This occurs when pet owners leave out food and water, inadvertently inviting other animals to partake without their knowledge. Beyond being a nuisance, this scenario poses a significant health risk, as fleas and ticks are carriers of harmful diseases.

What’s the difference between a flea and a tick?

At ABC in Livingston, we adhere to the highest standards of home care and treat your property as we would our own. Whether you’re dealing with a suspected flea infestation or a tick concern, our team is ready to help. Contact us for a complimentary consultation on flea and tick extermination services without any obligation.

In Livingston, pet owners who observe their furry companions scratching more frequently may suspect a flea infestation. However, heightened itchiness in pets can also be attributed to allergies or dermatitis, making it essential to consider other factors. Additionally, not all pets exhibit scratching behavior when afflicted by fleas.

If your pet appears increasingly agitated, watch out for these additional signs indicating a potential need for flea extermination services:

Excessive licking and biting of fur by pets

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 usual, 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 need a flea exterminator:

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

At Livingston, during your first

visit with ABC; our flea exterminators adopt a comprehensive approach to tackle infestations. We commence by administering treatments indoors and in your yard, followed by applying scientifically backed solutions in your attic and crawl spaces. Given the necessity for our technicians to ensure thorough treatment and product drying time, we request homeowners and their pets to vacate the premises during these service appointments, typically lasting a few hours.

You can anticipate your ABC tick control professional in Livingston to:

Given that standard treatments may not penetrate flea cocoons entirely, ABC technicians utilize products containing insect growth regulators to prevent hatched flea eggs from maturing into adults. We typically schedule a follow-up appointment after the initial treatment to ensure the effectiveness of these measures in halting the reproductive cycle.

Fleas are known for their rapid reproduction rate. Female fleas can lay between 20 to 50 eggs per day, contributing to the seemingly sudden appearance of infestations. To address this, our flea extermination and tick control services in Livingston typically incorporate a follow-up appointment. This ensures any newly hatched eggs are dealt with after our initial treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me with a tick problem?

Of course! At ABC, we’re fully equipped to assist Livingston residents with tick problems. While ticks aren’t commonly found in residential areas, they can pose serious health risks, including Lyme disease transmission. Whether you’ve spotted one tick or several, we can provide customized treatment solutions and offer advice on preventing future infestations.

Is there anything I need to do prior to my appointment?

Before our flea exterminators arrive for treatment, we’ll ensure that you’ve completed the necessary preparations for your home and property. This pre-treatment checklist includes:

  • Cleaning all floors by vacuuming, sweeping, or mopping.
  • Raking leaves, mowing the lawn, and tidying up other areas of the yard.
  • Removing clutter around your home.
  • Cleaning or replacing pet bedding, as advised by your ABC technician.
  • Take your pet(s) to the vet to establish a flea-control regimen.

Completing these steps is essential for our flea exterminators to commence effective treatments.

Can't I treat fleas on my own?

While there are products available for homeowners to control fleas, many of them prove ineffective. For instance, flea bombs can drive fleas deeper into hiding spots and leave unwanted chemicals on surfaces. Moreover, these products often fail to eliminate flea eggs, leading to a resurgence of the problem once the eggs mature into adults.

If your issue stems from an infested animal on your property, such as wildlife, indoor treatments alone won’t address the root cause. ABC pest control specialists apply effective treatments to ensure your Livingston home is flea-free and provide specialized tips to prevent future infestations.

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

As a family-run business, our utmost priority is the well-being of your household members. We meticulously choose products that we would trust in our own home, specifically formulated for residential use. In crafting your customized treatment plan, we aim to minimize chemical concentrations while guaranteeing effective pest control.
