What are Ticks?

Ticks are small, blood-sucking parasites that feed on humans and animals. There are several different species of ticks in Canada, some more dangerous than others. Ticks go through four life stages – egg, larva, nymph, and adult. They can pick up diseases from animals and spread them to humans through their bites.

What are the signs of a tick infestation?

If you notice any of the following, it could indicate a tick infestation on your property:

  • Ticks on pets or livestock
  • Ticks on family members after being outdoors
  • Bites or bullseye rashes
  • Small blood spots on sheets or furniture
  • Rodent nests or burrows nearby

Where do ticks live?

Most chemical treatments work quickly to kill ticks on contact within 24-48 hours. However, since ticks have a complex life cycle, follow-up treatments are usually needed every 2-3 weeks to fully break their life cycle and eliminate an infestation.

What chemicals do you use for tick control?

We use chemicals like pyrethroids and carbamates that disrupt the nervous system of ticks to kill them. Rest assured the products we use are approved for use in Canada and safe for pets and humans when applied correctly by our licensed technicians.

How can I help prevent ticks in my yard?

There are several steps you can take to make your yard less hospitable to ticks:

  • Clear tall grasses, brush, and leaf litter
  • Create barriers of wood chips/gravel between wooded areas and lawn
  • Discourage rodents by sealing off entry points to your home
  • Keep playground equipment away from the woods

How often should tick control be done?

Tick treatments need to be repeated every 2-3 weeks during peak tick season (May-July) to break their life cycle. We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments, and can provide a customized treatment plan based on the severity of your infestation.

What should I do if I find a tick on myself or family member?

Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick close to your skin and gently pull straight up until it releases its hold. Disinfect the bite area and contact your doctor if any symptoms of illness develop. Notify us so we can recommend additional tick control measures.

Health Risks From Ticks in Winnipeg

Ticks in Winnipeg, Manitoba can transmit certain illnesses, including:

  • Anaplasmosis - There have been a few cases of this tick-borne bacterial infection reported in Manitoba, but it is considered rare. Causes fever, chills, headaches, muscle aches, and nausea.
