Ticks are more than a nuisance, they can be dangerous!

Tick overview

Ticks are small oval shaped insects. They feed on the blood of non-domesticated wildlife such as fox, deer, mice and raccoons but also on pets and people. Here in Arkansas, our pest professionals often encounter lone star ticks, and American dog ticks. Black legged ticks also known as deer ticks are also quite common. Ticks are often found in wooded or overgrown areas as well as in tall grass and shrubs as they wait for a host animal or person.
