Ticks & Fleas
Protect Your Family from Ticks & Fleas in Arizona!
Ticks are both carriers and transmitters of many diseases, some of which can be very serious. They feed on the blood of a host, which can include reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and birds. Some can go years without feeding.
Ticks cannot run, hop, or fly. Instead, they climb onto an object like tall grass, weeds, fences, or sides of buildings, then wait for a host to pass by. In Arizona, adult ticks and fleas are most often found on the host’s ears, neck, and between their toes. Larvae and nymphs are commonly found on the long hair on the back of a dog.
Appearance and Life Cycle
Ticks are small and flat-like in appearance. Colors can vary from shades of red, brown, and black with patterns of white or lighter colors. When they’re engorged, they can change to a gray-blue or olive color.
Ticks lay as many as 10,000 eggs in cracks and crevices of roofs, kennels, or the ceiling of porches. Eggs will hatch weeks to months later.

Evergreen’s office staff deserves 5 stars. They are always pleasant and polite. We have used Evergreen for quite some time and never had any pest problems. Only once did I see some tiny bugs on a window sill so I called Evergreen. The sent someone out within an hour’s time! Frank not only took care of the problem, he also checked the surrounding areas of the room at no charge!
I had such a bad fly problem in my backyard! I have tried every home remedy that I could think of and nothing seemed to get these annoying pests. I did some research and called Evergreen Pest & Termite they had such good ratings I thought why not give them a try. I got on the phone with a lady named Tammy and she was so great she had me scheduled in a blink of an eye and determined the most affordable yet effective treatment option. The pest tech Zack came to treat my yard and he really went above and beyond! My treatment did come with a warranty and just to give those flies the extra boot I decided to take full advantage. Tammy knew who I was right away and exactly what my problem was before even pulling up my name in her system. That made me feel so special. Thank you for the VIP treatment. You deserve 6 stars! ******
