Home Pest Control : How to Get Rid of House Ticks


Hello, I’m Michael pH Ensler, with advantage pest control in st. Petersburg Florida. So the other day I was posed with the questions. How do I get rid of house ticks? Well, I assume what they’re talking about our the brown ticks, so the types of ticks that are going to get on our pets, like dogs and cats.

All right, if you’ve got ticks in your house. You & # 39, ve got a problem. These are really really tough beasts to get rid of all right. So first thing you need to do. Is you need to make sure you get the place, cleaned up, clutter and clothing on the floor? All those types of things are going to be really good, hiding places for the ticks, so you want to get all that stuff picked up and put right into the washing machine not into the hamper straight into the washing machine.

Okay, we’ll. Do a really thorough vacuuming pick up, as I said, get it all cleaned up and then you start the process alright, so you want to kill off the eggs and larvae good way to do. That is to do a nice light, dusting of a boric acid and a botanical pesticide from say somebody like EcoSmart and get a light dusting throughout the house.

Okay, so this is going to kill off the eggs in the larva stage. Okay, now the adults, the adults – are very, very tough. You’re, going to need to use a few different products. I suggest using something like a pyrethrin base because it’s very safe and it’s very fast-acting, and it also has mixed in with a lot of the products.

A growth regulator like Precor, so you’ll, want to take that and spray all of the baseboards, all the legs and all the different tables and chairs couches and Ottomans, and things like that. You need to turn them over spray.

The bottoms very, very well also you’re, going to make sure that the yard is taken care of. You got the house tick free, but if they’re going outside and they’re, getting them out of the shrubbery. That’s, going to be a problem, but that’s.

Another video, so you & # 39. Ll, have to do a search for that one. I hope this has been helpful. I’m Michael pH Enza, with advantage pest control coming to you from sunny st. Petersburg Florida
