If your dog has ticks, chances are you could too!
Ticks carry diseases and can cause life-threatening infections. Select Exterminating can be your best friend when it comes to getting rid of the problem.
Ticks are a member of the spider family. They can give humans horrible diseases such as Lyme Disease, Tick Fever, Tularemia (Rabbit Fever), Babesious (a Malaria like illness), Hemolytic Anemia, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Anaplasmosis, and Encephalitis. Ticks are one of the biggest carriers of diseases transmitted to people and pets — second only to the mosquito.
Ticks latch on to hosts by dropping from trees or when a host brushes against bushes or tall grass. Once the tick is attached to a host, they can consumer an amazing 100x their body weight in blood. Once finished, they will drop off to lay eggs.
It only takes one tick to cause a severe problem, so it is important to get help to remove them from your property, buildings and pets. We treat the problem from every angle to ensure you, your family, and your pets are protected from ticks.
Don’t take chances by trying to solve the problem yourself. Call Select Exterminating for same-day service!

Flea & Tick FAQ
How can you tell if a pet has ticks?
Inspect the pet and look for small black or brownish spots. It may look like a dark, raised bump.
Can I deal with a tick problem by myself?
In small cases where it is just one tick, you might be able to deal with it. However, if you have a tick infestation, you should contact a pest control expert immediately.
How do I prevent ticks?
There are certain repellants and even medications (for pets) that you can buy that will prevent these insects. It is also best to avoid overly wooded/grassy places, where ticks like to live.
