Ticks are notorious parasites known for transmitting vector-borne illnesses into their hosts. They present a serious health threat, and it’s important to be aware of the danger. Here in Arizona, Lyme disease is one of the most common diseases spread by ticks.
Lyme disease is a serious disease that you need treatment for right away. If you get Lyme disease from a tick, the first sign is a circular or oval-shaped rash around the bite site. The rash usually has a bullseye appearance, and though it doesn’t hurt or itch, it can cause unpleasant side effects like fever, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, and swollen glands.

If you’ve ever turned your kitchen light on late at night and seen a roach scurry across the floor or up a wall, you know how unsettling it can be. These pests are not only gross, but dangerous. They are known to transmit 33 different diseases, including E. coli infections and salmonellosis, as well as six different parasitic worms and at least seven other deadly human pathogens. They can also cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks in children.
Because they are nocturnal and live in dark, unused areas of your home, a cockroach infestation can be hard to spot. Knowing what to look for can help you determine if you have cockroaches in your home:
If you see any of these signs, call us immediately. Our highly trained exterminators have years of experience dealing with Oro Valley roaches, and can quickly eliminate your roach infestation, keeping you and your family safe from these dangerous, disgusting pests.
Ants can seem like they are everywhere – in parks, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and our backyards. Because of our warm climate, these nuisance pests are active for a majority of the year. The good news is that most ant species in Oro Valley are nuisance pests that pose no danger to humans, although a few species do bite or sting.
Dangerous or not, you don’t want these pests around your home. Here are some simple tips for keeping ants under control:
Following these tips should help keep ants under control around your property, but nothing beats professional pest control. At Pest Friends, we offer quality ant control plans that can keep ants of your property, so you don’t have to worry about these tiny nuisance pests invading your home and yard.
Seeing a mouse in your home may not feel like a huge issue. Sure, it may startle you, but these pests may not seem as gross or scary as other pests like roaches, spiders, or snakes. Their fuzzy ears and whiskers are almost cute. Unfortunately, these pests are more dangerous than they look. They can spread a wide range of diseases, destroy property, and put your home at risk for floods and fires by chewing through pipes and live wires.
Mouse control and removal is not something you should try to handle on your own. Traps and poisons from your local hardware store may kill some mice, but they won’t get to the root of the problem. Mice will continue to breed, and the infestation will continue to grow. Instead, call us and let us handle your mouse infestation. Our exterminators are trained in rodent removal. We can eliminate your mouse problem safely and identify areas of your home where mice may be getting in, keeping them from coming back permanently.
Wasps and other stinging insects are common around Oro Valley yards. While no one likes having them around, they do have a valuable role in the ecosystem. They help pollinate crops, trees, and flowers that feed humans and other animals. They also keep other nuisance insect populations under control.
Despite their value, they are not a pest you want to mess with. Wasp stings are painful, leaving the victim a red bump that can swell and hurt for days. For those who are allergic, a sting can cause anaphylaxis, which may be life-threatening and require hospitalization. Because wasps are social creatures, one sting usually leads to more as they react aggressively to defend their nest.
If you find a wasp nest on your property, do not attempt to remove it on your own. This can put you and everyone else around you at risk for painful stings. Instead contact us at Pest Friends and let our exterminators safely eliminate the nest, so you and your family can enjoy your time outside without fear of being stung.
