Tick identification for pest control in ME, MA, and NH


Ticks a Real Problem for New England

American Dog Ticks, Brown Dog Ticks and Black Legged Deer Ticks are the most common species found in New England. Infestations have been on the rise here over the past few years, which is a concern for pest professionals and homeowners alike. Ticks not only cause discomfort and irritation, they are carriers of diseases such as Lyme disease and HGE (Human Granulocytic Erlichiosus.) Ticks cannot hop or fly and must latch on to their targets from elevated surfaces such as tall grass and overgrown vegetation, making areas on the exterior of your home susceptible to infestation.

 Ticks “A Modern Solution” 

Modern’s HomeCare Mosquito & Tick Protection Program is designed to treat tick hot spots on your home’s exterior. During your initial service, your Modern Pest Professional will determine the species of tick or ticks present and identify areas with active tick activity, documenting the severity of the infestation. Modern’s Mosquito & Tick Protection Program is centered on reducing the number of ticks present in and around your yard and removing the conditions that support tick activity. Modern treats up to 3,000 square feet of property, controlling ticks for up to one acre. Follow-up inspections and treatments are conducted every season with additional treatments (2-3) over the summer months when ticks are most active. If you are not completely satisfied with your HomeCare Mosquito & Tick Protection Program service, Modern will promptly return to your home and diligently work until the problem is solved to your satisfaction.
