Tick Control in Louisville
Protect Your Property; Call Greenix Pest Control!
Nobody likes a bug bite, but things get so much worse when the bug that bites is a carrier of some sort of painful or even deadly disease. Such is the case with ticks. Ticks are extremely small, remarkably common, and are some of the most prolific disease carriers of any common pest. Tick species found throughout the United States are carriers of Lyme disease, rocky mountain spotted fever, and plenty of other dangerous and sometimes deadly bacteria and viruses, and that means even a single bite can be incredibly dangerous. What makes things worse is that ticks are found almost anywhere long grass, shrubs, and ground-based plants are found, as they provide shelter and protection.

Where Are Ticks Found?
Unlike other pests like ants or termites, ticks are not necessarily found absolutely everywhere. Ticks tend to prefer overgrown, unkempt areas because they are generally less likely to be disturbed and they are protected from the sunlight and predators. This means walking through a heavily-wooded or overgrown area could mean walking straight into a tick infestation. The majority of areas that are generally well groomed, such as shorter lawns and well-kept gardens are generally at little to no risk for ticks, so keeping your property well-groomed and keeping wood piles away from your home is a good way to keep the ticks out.
We handle all types of ticks common to the Louisville area, including:
- Blacklegged tick (also known as a deer tick)
- Lone Star tick
- American dog tick
- Gulf Coast tick
- Brown dog tick
Notice how several of these species of ticks had animals in their names? This is because ticks are far more likely to bite animals than they are humans. While they can and do bite people (resulting in the spread of disease), they strongly prefer the coverage of animal fir to protect them while they feast. Seeing as many animals are generally lower to the ground and easier to reach, ticks are far more likely to latch on to our furry friends, and this is often how many ticks get into homes.
