Our remedy for deer tick control
First, contact us. If you’ll be outdoors in settings prone to ticks, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants. Light colored clothes make ticks easier to detect. Tuck pants into socks. Use a tick repellent containing DEET. Wash clothes immediately after returning indoors if you suspect deer ticks. Ticks are difficult to control, and the services of an experienced professional are recommended. Treatments may be necessary on a regular basis in areas of your yard where ticks are found.
If you find a tick, use tweezers to gently pull straigh up away from the area on the body to which it is latched.
How to Identify a Deer Tick
Dark red to brown; 1/8″ long, flat, broad oval shape with 8 darker legs.
Deer ticks are often found near wooded and highly vegetated areas. They prefer to dwell in grass and shrubs where animals are most likely to pass by. Like all ticks, they’re known for being vectors to spreading bacterial diseases and Lyme disease.
These ticks like to feed on the blood of white-tailed deer, which is why they are called deer ticks (also known as blacklegged ticks). They’ll also feed on squirrels, raccoons, skunks, mice, dogs, birds, and humans when deer are not readily available..

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!
“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
