DIY Flea & Tick Control is Not Enough

Many people try to take care of flea and tick problems themselves, but DIY methods are often not enough to completely eradicate the problem. Fleas and ticks can lay eggs and hide in hard-to-reach places, making it difficult for homeowners to fully get rid of them. Additionally, many DIY methods are not safe for pets or children, and can even make the problem worse by driving fleas and ticks deeper into the carpet or furniture.

The Risks of Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks are not just small and bothersome pests, they also pose significant health risks to both humans and pets. Fleas can cause discomfort, itching, and even lead to infections, while ticks are notorious carriers of dangerous diseases that can cause long-term health issues. Here are some of the risks associated with fleas and ticks that you should be aware of:

  • Risks of Fleas: Flea bites can be painful, itchy, and may cause infection, particularly if the person or pet has an allergic reaction to flea saliva. In some cases, they can also lead to more severe health problems such as tapeworms and cat scratch fever.
  • Risks of Ticks: Ticks are responsible for transmitting a number of serious illnesses to both humans and pets. Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tick paralysis are just a few examples of tick-borne illnesses that can cause flu-like symptoms, joint pain, and even neurological damage.

The Dangers to Pets

As pet owners, it is important to be aware of the potential dangers that fleas and ticks pose to our furry friends. Flea and tick infestations can cause a range of health issues in pets, including anemia, skin infections, and tick-borne illnesses. Here are some of the risks that pets face:

  • Flea infestations can cause anemia in pets, particularly young animals. Fleas feed on their blood, causing a loss of red blood cells and leading to weakness, lethargy, and pale gums.
  • Flea allergy dermatitis is a common condition that affects pets and can cause severe itching, hair loss, and skin infections. This condition occurs when pets are allergic to flea saliva, and just one bite can trigger a reaction that lasts for weeks.
  • Ticks can transmit a variety of diseases to pets, just as they can to humans. Pets that spend a lot of time outdoors, particularly in wooded areas or fields, are at a higher risk for tick-borne illnesses such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis.

Why Professional Pest Control is Important

While it may be tempting to try and deal with a flea or tick infestation on your own, professional pest control services are often necessary to ensure complete elimination of these pests. Here are some reasons why it is important to consider hiring a professional pest control company:

  • Flea and tick infestations can be difficult to eradicate on your own. These pests can reproduce quickly and lay eggs in hard-to-reach areas, making it difficult to completely eliminate them without professional help.
  • Over-the-counter flea and tick products can be harmful to pets and people if not used properly. Professional pest control companies use safe and effective products that are specially formulated to eliminate fleas and ticks without harming your family or pets.
  • Professional pest control companies offer ongoing maintenance plans that can help prevent future infestations and keep your home and pets safe from pests.

Great experience! Mark is knowledgeable and fair. Very communicative! I knew exactly when his guys were coming and about what time. Benji and DJ did a great job of addressing all the areas of my home where I had gaps that were allowing squirrels into my attic. They were pleasant, efficient and accommodating. Strongly recommend this company.

Called Holders to remove an unknown critter from my house. Benji came out to do my inspection. He was personable, answered all my questions, and gave me a fair price for sealing my house and removal of the pest. He and DJ came back to do the work a couple days later. They were quick and thorough and sensitive to the fact that I had a sleeping newborn. Highly recommend.

Ricky and DJ with Holders Pest & Wildlife services performed our routine service today 9/2022. They were professional, courteous, attentive and appeared to be a good team. Ricky listened and addressed any of my concerns. I can't leave out Felicia, the receptionist, she is phenomenal! She's professional, understanding and willing to work with our schedule so that it's convenient on both sides. She's a keeper & we're grateful for her. Holders Pest & Wildlife has serviced our home for over 3 yrs and have remedied issues from mice, mites, stick bugs, antsand spiders. Being backed up to woods and a creek, we encounter a variety of creatures from time to time. I must add, although there's been a few staff changes over this time period, they still managed to provide good service each visit. Thank you for respecting our request of wearing your facial mask and shoe covers every visit! 🙂

We had a rodent problem and we chose Holder’s to do the job over our current brand name exterminator. I had a fantastic experience from the moment I called their number. The lady who took the call was very sweet and knowledgeable about the many questions I asked. Then she connected me directly with the technician, Benji, who would be coming out for the inspection. He too was so sweet and accommodating to our needs.I thought his initial inspection was done in a very professional manner. The quote and his explanation of the costs were straightforward and at no point, did he try to upsell me. The job was done in a few hours and cleanup was also done well. Benji also does a great job following up and keeping me informed.It’s definitely pricey but very much worth it to have peace of mind. It will save you from other more costly issues in the future. So far haven’t had any issues since they left.? I really liked the hands-on approach and general vibe of this company. There’s something personal about their touch that you don’t get from larger brand name companies.

We had a pest issue in the attic decided to hire Holder Pest to take a look. They were able to handle the issue with speed, professionalism and effectiveness. Their prices were fair and they offer a one year warranty. Ricky and Benji were very friendly and helpful with the entire process. Thanks again. Would recommend both for any pest issues you may have.
