Tick Control Services in Arkansas
Arkansas Tick Exterminator
Ticks are small, oval-shaped insects. They feed on the blood of non-domesticated wildlife such as fox, deer, mice, and raccoons but also on pets and people. Here in Arkansas, our pest professionals often encounter lone star ticks and American dog ticks. Black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks, are also quite common. 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.
