Call Now! (518) 374-6558

The most prominent danger ticks pose is the transmission of Lyme disease. Ticks infected with the disease are commonly found in the Northeast (including New York State), upper Midwest, and along the Northwest coast of the United States.

What Is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection. It can lead to several health problems if left untreated. When diagnosed early, patients are treated with antibiotics and usually recover rapidly.

Identifying Ticks

New York State is home to three common types of ticks.

Deer Tick

  • 3-10mm long depending on sex and whether engorged after a meal
  • Brownish in color
  • Can have a rust or brown-red hue after feeding
  • Flat body with eight legs (a larvae has only six), ovular shape
  • Can transmit of Lyme disease

American Dog Tick

  • 5-12mm long depending on sex and whether engorged after feeding
  • Brown with white to gray markings
  • Flat body with eight legs (a larvae has only six), ovular shape
  • Not thought to transmit Lyme disease

Lone Star Tick

  • 4-16mm long depending on sex and whether engorged after a meal
  • Reddish brown
  • Can change to slate gray when engorged
  • Flat body with eight legs (a larvae has only six), ovular shape
  • Can transmit disease

House flies usually enter the home through ripped screens, damaged siding and weather stripping, and other breaks in a building’s structure. They thrive in warm temperatures and are attracted to the warmer air emanating from the inside of buildings. Left out food and otherwise unsanitary conditions also attracts them.

Treat – Protect – Control

Ticks inhabit densely wooded areas and relocate via their host. They don’t thrive indoors and arrive inside via human or pet carriers.
