Ticks are small external parasites living by hematophagy on the blood of mammals and birds. That means that they suck your blood to survive. Ticks extract the blood by cutting a hole in the host’s epidermis—the top layer of skin. After they’ve created the hole in your skin, they insert their hypostome—a part of their mouths. This keeps the blood from clotting, by excreting an anticoagulant. The more blood you produce, the fuller the ticket becomes.

Ticks are very recognizable. They have bodies that are divided into two primary sections: the anterior capitulum which contains the head and mouthparts; and the posterior idiosoma which contains eight legs, digestive tract, and reproductive organs. The body of any type of tick is teardrop shaped and can be a variety of colors but is normally brown. Ticks are quite small initially but will grow in size as they gorge themselves on blood.


Tick Control Services in Coachella Valley, CA


The most common way to end up with a tick infestation is by animals that live in your home, like dogs and cats, who can easily bring ticks into your house. Ticks love the warm climate of Coachella Valley, so you should always use tick spray on your pets.

Ticks often have a certain host that they prefer to latch onto and are usually named after that preferred host. So, you will find ticks species with names like deer tick, American dog tick, brown dog tick, etc. However, it is important to understand that once a tick loses a particular host, it will try to find another before long. Even though they may prefer one type of host, they will feed on anything with blood in it, including you.

Domestic animals pick the ticks up from outside and after feeding for a couple of days, the ticks will drop off and lay eggs. They look for tiny crevices to store their eggs, which means that the eggs are extremely hard to find and that you could soon have a large tick infestation in your home. Getting rid of a tick infestation takes time because eggs can hatch months later, long after you think you have the situation under control with other tick removal methods. Therefore any time you spot a tick, you should hire professional tick control services to remove them.



Ticks can carry a number of diseases that can be transferred to humans. Because they suck blood from both animals and humans, they can easily pick up diseases from one host and pass it on to the next. This is how a number of diseases are spread in Coachella Valley, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, Q fever, tularemia, tick paralysis, and meningoencephalitis. Obviously, these are all very serious conditions, which means that you need to hire professional tick control services to eradicate any ticks on your property or in your home.

What is residential pest control?

Residential pest control refers to the services rendered at single-family dwellings. Our treatments can be done inside or outside the property, or both depending on our customer’s needs. We highly recommend that homeowners use both methods of pest control to ensure their property both inside and out remain free from the common insects found in the Palm Desert area.

Residential pest control can also be used in apartments and condos in addition to homes. With routine spray treatments, you can minimize the risk of infestations from insects, including ants, roaches, and termites. Using chemical pesticides, we go around the perimeter of each room and the property.

How often should you do pest control?
How often you should have pest control treatments will vary. There are two different approaches to pest control. One is a preventative treatment, the other eliminating a present infestation. One time visits are needed when an infestation is active. But routine pest control treatments can be scheduled monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. These can vary based on customers need and budget. We highly recommend for the best preventative course of action to have bi-monthly visits. However, the pesticides we use should be suitable for up to 90-days. Some customers may find that monthly treatments are best, while others quarterly to be a good fit for their needs and budget.
What are the best methods of pest control?
Professional pest controllers use several methods for eliminating infestations and preventative maintenance. Generally, the top two used are organic solutions and traditional chemical pesticides. While natural pesticides are excellent at deterring insects, over time, the solution can become ineffective. The conventional insecticide is highly effective at getting rid of unwanted pests and keeping properties pest-free.

Organic pesticides, while being eco-friendly, isn’t always the best solution. For those that want a specific solution to pests, chemical pesticides are the best remedy for fast and effective results.

Does a new home need pest control?
Absolutely! No home is ‘safe’ from a pest problem. Insects, spiders, and bugs lurk everywhere. New home constructions are no different than older homes. Many of the factors that contribute to an infestation can also be present in a new home, such as leaving food out. But one area that more modern houses have the edge over older homes are better sealed. In most cases, newer homes won’t have a sealing problem around the windows and doors, which is a common entry point for pests. To protect your property, it is always best to have routine treatments. This can prevent any infestations for the life of your home.
