Ticks: How Serious Are They?

Finding a tick in or around your home can leave you feeling worried and panicked. Rightly so. There are many health risks for both your pets and your family. Aside from being a nuisance, ticks can transmit up to 15 different diseases, viruses and infections.

In 2017, state and local health departments reported a record number of cases of tick borne diseases to the CDC. The mid-western United States, including Michigan, are considered high-risk for Lyme disease. Ticks are responsible for most cases of Lyme disease, in fact, reported numbers of cases of Lyme disease has tripled in the past two decades. They also responsible for carrying other diseases including babesiosis, and anaplasmosis, and these diseases have more than doubled over the past twenty years.

While most cases of ticks are brought in by Rover or Fluffy, they can come into the home in several ways. Ticks can attach themselves onto fur, clothing, or skin. While these pests often come indoors on pets, they frequently indicate another problem such as household pests like rats and mice. Finding a tick might also indicate a stray animal (opossum, raccoon, coyote, etc.) is living near your home. Brown ticks, are an example of the tick species that survives and reproduces quite well inside. Ticks can live up to two years in dark areas, without professional treatment.

Despite your best efforts in avoiding and getting rid of ticks, tick infestations often require a professional exterminator. Our team of exterminators at Presidio Pest Management can not only help prevent an infestation with our specialized equipment and pesticides, we also have an in depth knowledge of ticks’ habitats and behaviors. We are able to locate the ticks very quickly and help prevent a future tick infestation, so you can get back to enjoying your home, pets and family.

Absolutely the most professional company I have ever dealt with! From the first phone call I was at ease during a stressful and trying experience. Numerous companies tried to play on my emotions for their monetary gain. I was ill at ease with all of them. I tried one more phone call and it was to Presidio. Bobby the owner and I had an instant connection and I knew this company was the right fit. Matt came for the initial inspection and the day of the extermination, the owner Bobby was also at my door to introduce himself in person. I was impressed with his personalized service and his professionalism, along with Jay who was in charge of exterminating my home that day. They worked diligently from start to finish and when they left, everything was put back neatly in its place. They were thorough and also helped us out financially. If I could rate them 10 stars I would. Call this company first and foremost. Customer service is their number 1 priority. I can't thank you enough!!!!read more

I cannot express how great it is to work with Presidio. They are reliable. thorough and fast to respond to any and all appointment requests. In the mortgage industry you find yourself against many deadlines, and we have yet to worry about an order we have with Presidio. In fact, they over exceed any expectations I have on what a reasonable turn around time is. I would recommend them over any Pest Management company in the tri-county area! You will not be disappointed.read more

Pest control for bedbugs for apartment complex. Have been dealing with bedbugs for about 7/8 months now. Initially heat and chemically "treated" did a few follow up appts and never showed up for the last couple that they said they would. Fewer bedbugs and the duration that they'd be seen after went from upwards of 10 every day down to 1 or 2 bedbugs every 2 weeks to a month (just thought maybe they were single straddlers". Anyway, bedbugs started coming more frequently again and in increasing numbers again, so apt management was notified and Pest control guy came, had an attitude (not to mention, this particular employee seemed always to have an attitude any time he did actually come to do his job) about "why" he was just now hearing about them again after 6 months. And I told him, well, they weren't coming so frequently anymore until now, plus you never showed up for the last couple "follow ups" he looked around and asked "where are you seeing them?" I said, what does that matter, we are seeing them and they need to be treated. Well, he didn't treat anything that day and was "supposed to" come back a couple days later and never showed. So now I have to continuously go to apartment management who are only here 3 days per week for a total of 12 hours (4 hrs each day). Another week passes and apartment management said that "Pest control had come" I said, no they absolutely did not. If they did, they didn't come to my apartment. They also claim the initial heat/chemical treatment doesn't kill the bedbug eggs. That doesn't seem right either. I bet if they had to live with bedbugs they'd treat theirs real quick....Update: they came and were completely professional. Fabulous the last times to treat the bed bugs. Just a shame it couldn't have been treated the first time. Thank you!read more

We have been using Presidio for a few years now. From one house to another, 20 miles apart. We switched from using a big brand-name company and couldn't be happier with the results. They are professional, personable and thorough! They speak to us in layman's terms and help us to understand what it is they're doing to help. They give options and let us know exactly what we are getting, no surprises. We have three children and animals and are completely comfortable with the products they use. They've proven to be effective, time after time.read more
