Pest Control for Ticks in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
Enjoying the outdoor lifestyle is a big reason so many people want to live in Southern California. Unfortunately, people are not the only ones that thrive in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the surrounding areas—so do ticks. Ticks flourish in the warm climate and thick brush areas in and around Southern California. Ticks are parasites and attach to their hosts by cutting small holes in the skin and inserting their head and front legs to feed on blood. Ticks can become dangerous to humans and animals when feeding on their host’s blood by transmitting viruses, bacteria, and other unwelcomed diseases, like Lyme, tick paralysis, and tularemia, just to name a few. Eliminating the ticks you see is not enough because pathogens can spread from an infected adult tick to their offspring. Taking care of tick problems requires a professional exterminator, like the pros at Knockout, to rid your home or office of dangerous ticks.
Common Ticks in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
Southern California is home to the Brown Dog tick and American Dog tick. These hard-bodied ticks require a blood meal to progress to each stage of their development.
American Dog Tick
Also known as wood ticks, the American Dog tick is brownish with white-grayish markings. American Dog ticks prefer dogs as their host of choice.
Brown Dog Tick
The Brown Dog tick is reddish-brown and, like the American Dog tick, prefers dogs as their host. You can find Brown Dog ticks wherever dogs are present and in grassy areas with vegetation and bushes.
