Your Local Flea & Tick Control Experts

Serving Charlotte | Raleigh - Durham | Greensboro

Fleas and ticks are parasitic pests that can cause a lot of problems for people and pets alike. Both are minuscule, making it difficult to spot them. They also endanger your pets and family members. Getting rid of these blood-sucking insects requires diligence and patience, as it can take a long time. Trying to control them on your own can be painstaking. That makes it important to enlist the help of a professional flea exterminator or tick control company.

The flea and tick exterminators at Bug Out know how distressing a flea or tick problem can be. We can help remove and keep them away from your North Carolina home or business.

Flea & Tick Control Solutions

Once fleas or ticks infiltrate your home, it can be hard to locate and get rid of them without the trained eye of a professional tick and flea exterminator. At Bug Out, our experts will perform a home inspection to determine if your home has an infestation, and the contributing factors that are attracting the parasitic pests. We will implement a plan that addresses your specific needs and will eliminate your flea or tick infestation while controlling any future issues.

Insecticides and Growth Regulators

Insecticides like pyrethrins, pyrethroids, methoprene, and pyriproxyfen are commonly used for flea and tick control. They’re safe for pets and humans when used as directed. Applied as spot treatments or environmental sprays, they effectively disrupt the life cycle of fleas and ticks, preventing infestations. These substances target various life stages, ensuring thorough elimination while minimizing environmental impact.

Flea & Tick Fumigation Services

Flea and tick fumigation services offer comprehensive pest elimination throughout the home. Our licensed professional exterminators ensure safety and effectiveness. Preparation includes removing pets, covering or storing food and utensils, vacating the premises during treatment, and following further instructions from our licensed professionals. Safety measures include sealing the structure, using appropriate chemicals, and providing ventilation afterward to ensure thorough pest eradication while safeguarding residents’ well-being.

Heat Treatment for Flea & Tick Extermination

Heat treatment for flea and tick extermination involves raising temperatures to lethal levels for pests while being non-toxic and chemical-free. It effectively targets all life stages of fleas and ticks, making it suitable for sensitive environments. To prepare, remove pets and heat-sensitive items, seal food and utensils, and follow any specific instructions provided by our licensed professional exterminators.

What Are the Signs of a Flea or Tick Infestation?

Identifying the signs of a flea or tick infestation early on is crucial in preventing further spread and potential health issues. Look out for common indicators such as excessive scratching or biting in pets, red and irritated skin, flea dirt (black specks resembling ground pepper) on pet bedding or furniture, and in the case of ticks, finding them attached to skin or clothing. Additionally, flea bites often appear as small, red bumps on the skin, commonly concentrated around ankles and legs. If you notice any of these signs, get in touch with our expert flea and tick exterminators to help eliminate these tiny pests from your property for good!

What Attracts Fleas or Ticks to Your Home or Business?

Fleas are drawn to warm-blooded animals, such as pets and humans, and are commonly brought into homes through these hosts. They thrive in humid environments and are often found in areas frequented by pets, such as carpets, pet bedding, and upholstered furniture. 

Ticks, on the other hand, are attracted to areas with dense vegetation, making yards and wooded areas prime habitats. They latch onto hosts as they pass by, including pets and humans, in search of a blood meal.
