The rural area of Glen Spey is best known for its small rivers and secret swimming holes. The woods in Glen Spey are a great spot for adventure, and everyone has their favorite secret spot shared with family or a close group of friends. The only thing that puts a damper on the outdoors of Glen Spey are the ticks. We’ve all been there, where we go out to the woods to camp or hike, followed by full-body checks and someone in the group finds a tick on them.
The Effects of a Tick Bite
If a tick bites into you, there is a serious reason for concern, Lyme disease. We have all heard the warnings, but here are the facts:
- Lyme disease can spread into the joints, heart, and/or nervous system, resulting in location-specific symptoms.
- Lyme disease can be treated, however, post Lyme disease syndrome (PLDS) affects people long after the treatment. Symptoms can be experienced years after the tick bite.
- Should Lyme disease go untreated, it can result in cognitive problems, numbness or paralyzation of the face, abnormal muscle movement, and speech problems.
- Many times, people diagnosed with Lyme disease never see or feel the tick.
Ticks are one of the most dangerous pests, and one of the most difficult to prevent. To eliminate ticks, you will need professional assistance. Masters Pest Control can bring you peace of mind you seek on your property.
Other Pests in Glen Spey
In addition to ticks, there are many other pests in the area, including but not limited to rodents, carpenter bees, and termites. These can cause a lot of trouble for your home, and it’s better to deal with these problems sooner, rather than later.
Rodents spread disease, through bites, fleas, and feces; while carpenter bees and termites eat your home from the outside. With some help from the Masters, you can take back your home and live with the comfort of knowing you, your home, and your family are prepared for whatever pests might come out of the woods.

I’ve been using masters for about 2 years now. We had ants and needed them gone. We still use them for maintenance .

Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Did not try to “over sell” services that were not needed. Called Masters for possible termite sighting (which they pointed out we did not need) but they found carpenter ants in another location of our house which they serviced the next work day. Just serviced yesterday so will defer final comments until we see results.
