Protect Your Family and Pets with Tick Spraying Services in Birmingham
If you plan on venturing outside at any point during the-year, you need a tick control plan. Otherwise, you expose yourself to several tick-related harms, including tick-borne diseases. Some ticks carry Lyme disease, a virus that can lead to fever-like symptoms, a rash, and more severe illness if left untreated. Ticks can also transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, tularemia, and tick paralysis. While tick-related diseases are somewhat rare in America, they do affect hundreds of people every year. Get the facts on insect-borne disease.
Even if a tick bite doesn’t transmit a disease, it could still lead to infection and medical bills. Tick saliva, which the tick uses to eat while attached to a host, carries enough protozoa and bacteria to make this pest one of the greatest disease vectors on Earth. Improperly removing an embedded tick could lead to the head braking off in the skin and the potential for infection. Ticks also leave behind irritating, itchy red bites due to the acidic nature of the saliva. Protect your family from infection and illness with Tick Shield, the best tick spraying service in Birmingham.
Did you know ticks could kill pets and animals? Seed ticks, or the six-legged stage of infant ticks, can attack a host in numbers up to 30,000 at once. This many newborn ticks on a dog, cat, horse, cow, or other mammal can lead to anemia, or a deficiency of red blood cells. In a weak, sick, or elderly animal, anemia can lead to death. Seed tick infestations can be difficult to eradicate. Tick Shield kills seed ticks and adult ticks on contact, and it repels future ticks from approaching and spreading larvae where your pets or livestock live.

Mosquito Shield was founded in September 2001. We’ve all been there, trying to enjoy our homes’ outdoors, only to have our limited time outside ruined by unwanted mosquitos and insects. It was clear that the mosquito control products available at the time—body sprays, candles, mosquito magnets—weren’t up to the task. Frustrated with these options, we set out to formulate a true solution. The following 15 years were spent researching the science behind the mosquito life cycle, testing products, application methods and treatment frequency. We developed our own proprietary blend, Mosquito Protection Blend (MPB), that lasts for weeks and gets stronger as mosquito season progressed. Our MPB is made with natural oils that rid you of current mosquitos and repel future unwanted guests. Combining MPB with our FlexBlend application technology has put us at the forefront of residential mosquito control.
