Yes, the clock is ticking. Warmer weather in Chicagoland will bring out the fleas and ticks before you know it. Some ticks are notorious for carrying the bacterium that causes Lyme Disease in humans. Rest assured that the American Dog Tick is NOT one of them. But remember, that does not make it entirely harmless either!
If you have not seen one, and we hope that you don’t, ticks are 8-legged arachnids though they are not spiders. They do not have wings and cannot fly, but they are adept at latching on to clothes, fur and hair that wisps past them within their reach. The American Dog Tick will feed on just about any animal it can hook its legs onto.
It is just one of the many invaders that may be hanging around your property in the upcoming warmer weather. Ticks, fleas, spiders, and many other creepy crawly things are set to invade your property. When (or better yet before) they do, pick up the phone and call Kurt at A Complete Pest Solution, Suburban Chicago’s pest control experts at (630) 464-1542.
