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 Rhode Island come to your house to with tick removal.
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.
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.

Fox Pest Control had a salesman going door-to-door in our neighborhood. We had an ant problem and we have 3 dogs so ticks were an issue for us. I never had heard of Fox before, but decided to go with their annual plan. They arrived as scheduled on Saturday and performed the service. At first we had more ants than we had, but within a week were completely gone and have been for some time now. The dogs were still getting tick, so we called for a free application - again the service was provided as scheduled. The dogs still have an occasional tick, but the next application is scheduled for early July so we will wait for the next scheduled visit and see what happens. We do have a lot of trees in our yard and they have always been a haven for ticks - I had a few tick bits the past years and both required medication. This year I have been in the yard as much as I had in the past and this year I have had NO tick bits. So0 far we are very pleased and would recommend Fox Peat Control.

I have nothing but great things to say about FOX Pest Control. I started my yearly program with them in spring 2017. At that time we were having a big tick problem. For about a week straight, our dog would go outside and come back in with ticks on her. After just one treatment from FOX the ticks stopped. In the last year we have seen a dramatic decrease in spiders and other nuisance bugs that we used to occasionally see. Today our technician Justin came to the house for our winter treatment and he was extremely thorough inspecting the inside and outside of the house. The FOX team is very knowledgeable and very professional. This is money well spent. I highly recommend FOX Pest Control.
