Tick Control in Northwest Arkansas
Ticks are one of the more dangerous pests in Northwest Arkansas due to some of the diseases they carry. Ticks actually cause more human disease in Arkansas than any other insect.
The most common ticks found in Northwest Arkansas are american dog ticks, lone star ticks, and deer ticks.
Some of the diseases caused in humans from a tick bite are rocky mountain spotted fever from american dog ticks, heartland virus, alpha gal, bourbon virus, STARI (southern tick associated rash illness) from lone star ticks which are the more aggressive and identified usually with a white spot or a "lone star" on their backs.
