Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Tick Exterminator Service

Rats are large, disease carrying rodents, and you do not want them in your home. Particularly if you have pets or children, a rat infestation can be dangerous. They will come into your home and destroy practically everything, and touching a dead rat or rat droppings can be enough to transfer diseases to pets and children. In the warmth and safety of your Long Island home, rats can live up to three years, and with the average female rat giving birth to 8-10 babies at a time, your home can be overrun quickly. Fox Pest Control is here to fight your rodent problems for you. If you have a rat infestation, call today to receive prompt service and removal.

Signs of a Tick Infestation

You might already know you have a tick infestation, but here is the most common sign tick exterminators look for in Long Island.


Infact, the only way to know if you have ticks is to actually see them. They appear like black or dark brown dots, usually around your waistline, around your ankles, or in your hair.

Things You Need To Know About Ticks

  • Ticks are external parasites that latch onto the skin of their hosts and suck their blood. 
  •  In order for a tick to fully develop into an adult, it needs to consume blood multiple times. 
  • Adult ticks have eight legs.
  • Ticks vary in colors but are shaped like an oval. 
  • You’ll see them most often in warm, moist areas, especially places that are dense in vegetation and trees. 
  • Unfortunately, these little arachnids can be quite dangerous, as they carry multiple diseases including:
    • Lyme disease
    • Babesiosis
    • Colorado tick fever
    • Rocky Mountain spotted fever 
    • Anaplasmosis
    • Rickettsiosis
    • Ehrlichiosis 
    • Powassan virus 

Helpful Tick Prevention Tips:

  • Keep grass cut short
  • Clean up the yard: clear away branches, leaves, and other debris
  • Avoid walking your pet through wooded areas and tall grass, and check your pet for ticks after walks
  • A mulch or wood chip barrier between your yard and wooded areas can deter ticks.
  • Stack wood neatly in a dry area
  • Take your pets to the vet for regular checkups that include tick and flea inspections 
  • Check your skin and clothing frequently for ticks
  • Ask your vet about preventative tick treatments for your pet

Tick Control FAQ

How do I get rid of ticks?

Much like fleas, ticks in Long Island can cause lots of problems for pets, but they can also come into your home. If veterinarian-approved tick treatments for your pet can’t keep the ticks out of your home, it’s time to call a great tick exterminator like Fox Pest Control. We have what it takes to root these pests out of their hiding places and get rid of ticks once and for all.

Why do I need Fox’s treatments for ticks during the winter?

Yes, they can be. Tick removal from your Long Island home and yard is critical because they latch onto a host and suck blood over a long period of time, ticks can transmit a number of diseases, including:

Are ticks dangerous?

Yes, they can be very dangerous. Because they latch onto their host and suck blood over a long period of time, ticks can transmit a number of diseases, including:

Lyme disease
Colorado tick fever
Powassan virus
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

Does a swollen tick bite mean I have Lyme disease?

A small amount of swelling in the area near the bite for a few days doesn’t necessarily indicate Lyme disease. Many people experience a mild allergic reaction to a tick’s saliva, but the swelling should be gone within a few days. Nevertheless, if you have a tick infestation, let Fox Long Island come to your house to with tick removal.

How do I know if I have Lyme disease from a tick bite?

If the swollen spot grows and swelling persists for a week or more, this could be an early sign of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme could prevent its long-term effects. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you see early signs of Lyme disease. In the meantime, call Fox for the best tick extermination treatment.

How can I prevent Lyme disease from tick bites?

Transmission of Lyme disease from ticks can take 24-48 hours in most cases, so by checking for ticks regularly, you can avoid many of the problems ticks cause. If you do find you have an infestation, Fox will send a certified tick exterminator -- in many cases that same day.

If you are bitten by a tick and you’re worried about a potential infection, seek medical attention right away.

What do ticks eat?

Ticks are external parasites that latch onto the skin of its host and suck their blood. Ticks only consume blood and nothing else during their lives.

What are ticks?

Ticks are arachnids, distantly related to spiders, and an external parasite. They have eight legs and suck the blood of a host. In order to grow from a new hatchling to adulthood, the tick must consume blood several times.

Louis is excellent. He was on time and helped us get ready for the season, spraying for crickets and ticks. Thanks again, Louis.

It is rare for me to give a five star rating. I highly recommend Fox for best Value, responsive customer service, quality service, stands behind warranties. I own a home in Hauppauge. I was approached by Salesman Spencer who was serving several of our neighbors properties. I was very pleased at his detailed outline of services. I have a severe dislike for bugs, far more then your average person. So I attempt to handle a lot of bug control myself from a prevention standpoint. Typically I also have a pest control on contract but I was not happy with my last companies rising prices and slipping service. I like to pick the brain of the service man because in the cycle of life if you kill off one bug you often invite another or your getting the pest because you have a welcoming environment to them. I see other reviews where they complain about the detailed nature but if you work with these guys as a team you can really make a big impact on pest control. I know very well the costs of pest control and their prices are very fair for the quality you receive. You can call the two other guys who advise best prices on Long Island .. but I can tell you their contracts are filled with loopholes for additional charges. I brought in Fox for ant control and hornet control. I personally found three nests they found an additional 2. I have not seen a hornet since. I did have ants reappear but that is somewhat expected with ants especially on a property as large as mine. But true to word they came and did a complete property treatment for ants again,,, not just in the one area they came back. I called Spence freaking out after we got a hurricane, I instantly had a massive tick problem. We came in from cleaning up the yard and my 3 year old had ticks in her hair. As a bug a phobe I lost my mind. They had a tremendously busy schedule but Spence worked his magic and was able to squeeze me in the next day. When the tech Mathew arrived he was empathetic to my tick freak out. He was so detailed in the application. He did not miss one spot in a two acre lot. So when I see reviews about late appearances please take into consideration that the lateness may be because they are trying to do the right thing for another customer. And you'll be happy if that day comes and you need them quick The technician who came advised that he found bee hives in some of the fallen trees while doing the tick treatment and since they were included in my original contract. That's doing the right thing!

DANNY from Fox Pest Control Company was here yesterday morning and was professional, polite, and extremely informative. I have been really stressed out regarding using any chemicals now that my flock of six chickens are old enough to be outside and to free range the entire backyard. I also have two large dogs, one being a 130 pound 14 month old Saint Bernard puppy with an extreme digestive disease. My pup is on a prescription diet and anything he eats can cause a downward spiral that could actually lead to the unspeakable. Poor DANNY walked into the trap of a worried, cautious and protective mom that still wanted and needed his help. I must say to everyone that DANNY was extremely understanding of my concerns! He educated me on everything that needed to be done as well as things to look out for. Being concerned about my free range chickens (that have been providing us with 3-5 fresh eggs daily) DANNY did not put down the tick granules around the property. We have begun the foundation of a chicken run where the coop is in the backyard. DANNY suggested that we should call the office as soon as we know the date the run is completed so the chickens can be contained in the run. Fox Pest will return to put down the tick granules then. Danny also made sure dogs were and will be safe by telling me to be sure the office knows my situation and Danny would inform them as well. We have moved 6 months ago to Suffolk County and we are only a couple miles away from the Long Island Sound. All different neighborhoods need different types of pest issues , our old neighborhood had ants and more ants. Being educated by Fox Pest Control Company, I know a lot more, especially about the crickets and sprickets and of course deer ticks (having seen deer in the woods twice since living here). DANNY also told me what to look for now that I have the chicken coop and soon the attached run because of course it will attract mice and rats, especially since the forest runs behind my home as well as most all of our neighbors. I highly recommend using Fox Pest Control Company! Any serviceman I have met has been great, but DANNY made me feel like I was a large business account even though we are just a regular residential account to a big company! I know that I will definitely be requesting DANNY to come back to be our servicemen due to his professionalism and his concern for his client. I actually couldn't help but to give him a bear hug before he left!

Absolutely the BEST company I have ever dealt with! Nathan went above and beyond to help us and Aaron was GREAT as well!! My husband was attacked by wasps and they came immediately to take care of them. Other contracts I have had in the past with other companies have been horrible when you need them to come. Some didn't show up at all. Living in Manorville it is hard to control insects however, Since FOX has sprayed us, we have had no spiders, ticks or fleas. They are AMAZING! CAll Nathan and tell him the SMALLS family sent you!!
