Tick Extermination, Removal,
and Control in North-Central WV

How to Avoid Lyme Disease, Powassan Virus, and Anaplasmosis

Ticks attach themselves to humans, domestic animals, and wildlife while traveling through infested areas outdoors (typically in areas with excessive vegetation and/or tall grass). By this method, they have spread throughout nearly all of the United States, with heavy concentrations of disease vector species located east of the Rocky Mountains. Master’s Pest Management offers fast, affordable extermination of ticks throughout all of North-Central West Virginia. Call: (304) 472-1411.

In our region, ticks have sickened residents and transferred many serious diseases, viruses, and parasites that attack major body systems including the joints, nerves, and brain, such as:

  • Lyme Disease
  • Powassan (POW) Virus
  • Anaplasmosis
  • Babesiosis
  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Spotted Fever
  • Rickettsiosis
  • Tularemia

There are many other pathogens that are spread by ticks, as well. Residents are rightfully concerned and would like to know how to avoid contracting these terrible illnesses. The best method is prevention, as well as proactive approaches including preventative perimeter tick treatments throughout the areas that you frequent the most (your backyard, hunting grounds, etc.).

How to Remove a Tick Attached to Your Body

If you notice a tick attached to your body, you should seek immediate medical attention to have it removed promptly by a professional. If the tick is mishandled during removal, it may regurgitate into your bloodstream and greatly increase your risk of contracting a serious illness. If traveling outdoors, permethrin spray is recommended for clothing, and DEET cream for exposed skin areas (which should be kept to a minimum). If ticks have been witnessed on your property, they should be exterminated right away. Call Master’s Pest Management at: (304) 472-1411.
