Protect Your Family and Pets With Our Flea and Tick Control Services
Fleas and ticks are more than just an itchy inconvenience! These pests spread dangerous diseases and pose a significant health risk to your family and pets.
Fleas and Ticks Don’t Have to Be a Part of Playing in the Yard
Every year it seems that the ticks are just getting worse, carrying new diseases and showing up in greater numbers. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be that way! We offer flea and tick pest control services, making your yard a fun place to be and flea and tick bites a thing of the past.
Our Flea and Tick Control Process
Before we begin any treatment process we always take the time to check the property. Fleas and ticks may just seem to be everywhere, but the truth is there are specific conditions that they like the most. After our assessment we’ll discuss our findings with you so your flea and tick problem gets taken care of!
Apply Flea and Tick Treatment to Affected Areas
Our pest control experts will apply a protective perimeter of flea and tick spray, preventing ticks from entering your yard. If an indoor infestation is detected then we’ll choose and apply the appropriate remediation method.
Monthly Flea and Tick Control Program
For the best efficacy, flea and tick treatments need to be conducted on a monthly basis. We have different treatment plans available depending on your house’s pest control needs, and will come out on a monthly basis to ensure that your protection stays current.
Be Able To Enjoy Your Backyard
After flea and tick treatment you’ll find that your yard is immediately a nicer place to spend time. While it is impossible to eradicate 100% of the flea and tick population, the results of treatment will be obvious. There will be far fewer fleas and ticks, allowing you to use less repellent and vastly reduce the number you and your family will encounter while outside.

“We are so happy with Cramer Pest Control. We have been clients for several years for pest control. During a routine service call, CJ alerted us to a pipe leak that we had no idea was occurring. As a result, we were able to have a plumber and contractor come and fix the issue. It could have turned into a much bigger issue. Thank you!”

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF FLEAS AND TICKS?
Fleas and ticks pose significant health risks to humans and pets.
Fleas are carriers of the Black Death (bubonic plague) and while this is no longer a severe risk they also transmit murine typhus, cat scratch fever, and tapeworms.
Ticks transmit a whole host of severe diseases including lyme disease, rocky mountain spotted fever, tularemia, and several other tick-borne illnesses. In some cases tick bites can cause people to develop alpha-gal syndrome, where they have severe allergic reactions to the proteins found in red meat.
ARE FLEAS AND TICKS JUST A SUMMER PROBLEM?
Unfortunately ticks are quite tolerant of cold and wet weather and thus are active all year round. As long as the daytime temperatures are above freezing and there isn’t snow on the ground, there will be tick activity.
HOW DO I GET RID OF FLEAS AND TICKS?
Getting rid of fleas and ticks requires a multi-faceted approach. When fleas or ticks are found on your pets it is important to remove them quickly. Fleas and flea eggs can be combed out using a flea comb, while ticks will need to be removed using tweezers. Do not try to burn a tick off or smother it with vaseline!
Pets should be put on a flea control medicine to ensure that any remaining fleas are killed off. There are both prescription and over-the-counter options available and your vet can advise you which is the best for your pet.
Next, a professional flea and tick control service should be called out to perform treatment of carpets and affected areas. A preventative outdoor treatment will protect against future infestations.
Finally, carpets should be vacuumed thoroughly and steps should be taken to make your yard less hospitable to fleas and ticks. Our pest control experts can explain what that looks like for your specific circumstances. Generally you’ll want to make your yard less favorable for rodents, as fleas and ticks tend to hitch a ride on these unwanted vermin.
WHAT ARE SOME SIGNS OF A FLEA INFESTATION?
The most common sign of a flea infestation is easy to spot for pet owners: if your dog or cat is excessively itchy there is a good chance that they have fleas! When your pet has fleas you can be fairly certain that they’ve hitched a ride inside and probably have taken up residence in your carpets, rugs, and pet beds.
Similarly, if you are getting itchy bites around ankle height, then you are probably looking at a flea problem. When people are walking around fleas tend not to bite much higher than the ankles.
Finally, if you’ve got a pair of white socks and a magnifying glass you can conduct an easy check. Put on the socks and shuffle around your entire house. Afterwards, examine the socks and look for: adult fleas, dark reddish brown specks/flea dirt (flea poop is a dark red brown from their blood diet), or flea eggs (tiny, pearlescent eggs, about the size of a period on your screen).
