Ticks are a parasitic pest that can wreak havoc on your health and property if an infestation occurs. But what are they really? Ticks are, in fact, arthropods. Other insects that fall into the arthropod family are many varieties of mites. So, ticks are actually not insects or spiders, no matter how often they are grouped into these families. Don’t worry, you will still be able to find tick exterminators in most of your Waldorf pest control companies.
There are a large number of tick species in the world. The most common species of tick in Waldorf, MD are either Wood Ticks or Deer Ticks. If you’ve ever found a tick on you, it is probably from those two species. Deer Ticks, in particular, can be dangerous because they are associated with the spread of Lyme Disease, which can have terrible health repercussions if contracted. You should always call a tick control professional if you find ticks in your Waldorf yard or home.
Luckily, ticks are not hard to spot or identify. They vary slightly by species. But, overall, they are small invertebrates. All ticks have eight legs and a tear-dropped or round body. In contrast to popular conception, ticks do not burrow into your skin to feed. Instead, their mouths latch on to mammals in order to suck blood.
There are two main classifications of ticks: hard ticks and soft ticks. Hard ticks have a hard-outer skeleton that is lacking in soft ticks. Soft tick bodies tend to be a rounder shape than hard ticks.
Although all ticks can carry disease, only a few species are very dangerous. You can tell the species of tick by their markings, shape, size, and color. A tick control professional can also help you identify the type of tick infesting your yard.
Unfortunately, Ticks are naturally in the wild and the city. They can be found in the grass, wood piles, and gardens of many Waldorf homes. This is why having a tick exterminator come to your house to treat for ticks is the best way to avoid a tick problem on your Waldorf property.
In addition to employing tick control services, there are a few steps that you can take to avoid ticks. First, wear appropriate clothing when outdoors. If you are going to be in the woods or area with high grass, wear long socks over your pants and boots. Second, always perform a “tick check” after returning in from outside. This step applies to your animals as well, for the most common ways ticks enter our homes is by riding in on our animals.

The office was able to quickly arrange a visit to get rid of a wasp nest in our soffit. The technician came twice to fog and re-fog. We only had to pay for the first visit as they guaranteed their results. The wasps are now gone.
