Ticks are slow-crawling, wingless vermin that feed solely on human and animal blood. Of greatest concern in our geography are hard ticks. They are usually found just a few inches or feet off the ground on vegetation. The tick species most commonly encountered infesting people and animals in our geography are the lone star tick, the American dog tick and the blacklegged tick or deer tick.
Yes, the black legged or deer tick is known to vector Lyme disease. The American dog tick and the lone star tick are a known vector of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and can cause paralysis.
Ticks may be difficult to control and that's why our service includes the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Due to the complexity of treatment and the time required, ticks are generally not a pest many people have success in eradicating. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
Schendel is 100% committed to helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Schendel uses the least amount of material as possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA and our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
We have standard pricing for all of our pest services, based on average size homes under 3500 square feet and where the infestation does not require more than the standard number of services. We will always make you aware of any price changes before we start your service. Sign up for your FREE quote today and see how much you can save with Schendel.
Schendel offers customers an exclusive PestZero Warranty. We will target the source and eliminate your pest problem. If pests return, Schendel returns for free. Guaranteed.

"Derek always shows up when he says he will, and explains what he did while he was here. I appreciate the extras like putting on booties before he enters our home, and always asking if I've noticed any issues. He is knowledgeable, professional and polite, and for that reason I always recommend Schendel Pest to my friends and neighbors."
