Pest Identification - Ticks

What Are Ticks?  

Little Rock Tick InformationTicks are small oval shaped insects that feed on the blood of non-domesticated wildlife such as fox, deer, mice and raccoons.  McCauley Services often encounter lone star ticks, American dog ticks and black legged ticks also known as deer ticks. Ticks are often found in wooded or overgrown areas as well as in tall grass and shrubs as they wait for a host animal or person. 

Why Do I Have Them?

Ticks enter homes and buildings usually on a pet or human host and are often brought onto your property by native wildlife.  Ticks cannot jump or fly but often wait in areas where they are most likely to acquire a host.  Also known as transitional areas or edge habitats, these include spots where field meets lawn and trails through tall grass or forests.

Are They Dangerous?

Ticks pose serious health concerns as they are known to carry and transmit disease and illness to humans and domestic animals.  The black legged tick is considered a major vector of Lyme Disease.

How Do I Get Rid Of Ticks?

Ticks can be a very difficult pest problem to resolve as they enter your home on outside sources. Contacting McCauley Services is the ideal way to get rid of ticks that have entered your home or business.  We offer highly effective pest control that is sure to eradicate the tick problem.  

Can I Do It Myself?

Do-it-yourself sprays and treatments are not always effective in resolving tick problems and may contain chemicals that are harmful to people and pets if mixed improperly.  McCauley Services’ pest control professionals are trained in identifying ticks and will implement effective measures to control ticks that have gained entry.    

Is The Treatment Safe?

The health and safety of our customers, their families or employees is very important to us and that is why we use products and treatments that are EPA registered for pest control use.  All of our pest control professionals are registered and licensed by the state or local jurisdictions where we provide service to ensure proper application.  

How Soon Can You Get Here?

At McCauley Services we make every effort to be with you as soon as possible.  In most cases we can respond on the same or next day.

How Much Do Your Services Cost?

The state of Arkansas offers a perfect environment for many different pests and species which all require a different treatment and therefore a different price.  Our contracts are customized to meet your needs and expectations so our prices reflect that.  When you contact our office we can provide you with a general price range and for many pests we recommend a free inspection, where one of our representatives will thoroughly investigate your concerns, give you our recommendation for treatment and pricing information for the service.

How Do I Prevent This In The Future?

Ticks and other pest problems can be difficult to prevent and that is why many of our clients choose to continue service with our Prescribe Home Protection Program to keep ticks and other insects and rodents out of their home or our Prescribed Commercial Program for commercial facilities.
