Overland Park – Flea, Tick, & Chigger Control
Mantis Pest Solutions
Fleas, ticks, and chiggers are all small insects that can cause irritation and discomfort to humans and animals. They are common in outdoor environments and can be found in many regions around the world. Here is some general information about these three pests.
Fleas are small, wingless insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. They are known for their ability to jump long distances and can easily infest pets and humans. These biting pests can transmit diseases such as murine typhus and tapeworms, and their bites can cause itching, inflammation, and allergic reactions.
Ticks are small arachnids that feed on the blood of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. They are known for transmitting diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and tularemia. These blood-sucking pests are commonly found in wooded areas, grassy fields, and other outdoor environments.
Chiggers, often referred to as mites, are biting pests that feed on the skin cells of mammals and birds. They are commonly found in grassy fields, forests, and other outdoor environments. Chigger bites can cause intense itching and redness, and in rare cases, can transmit diseases such as scrub typhus.
Overall, these three different types of parasites are common pests that can cause irritation and discomfort to humans and animals. By taking measures to prevent infestations and bites, you can enjoy a safe and healthy outdoor experience.
How to rid your home of Fleas, ticks and chiggers
Fleas: A pest control professional will do a thorough inspection then use a combination of treatments, such as insecticides and growth regulators, to target adult fleas and prevent larvae from developing into new adult fleas. They will also provide guidance on how to prevent future flea infestations, such as keeping your pets treated with flea prevention products and vacuuming regularly.
Ticks: A pest control professional will first complete an inspection then will use a combination of treatments, such as insecticides and tick tubes, to target adult ticks and prevent larvae from developing into new adult ticks. They will also provide guidance on how to prevent future tick infestations, such as keeping your yard well-maintained and using tick repellent products when spending time outdoors.
Chiggers: Professional chigger removal involves a thorough inspection of your property to identify areas where chiggers may be living. A pest control professional will then use treatments, such as insecticides and vegetation management, to target adult chiggers and prevent larvae from developing into new adults. They will also provide guidance on how to prevent future chigger infestations, such as wearing protective clothing when spending time outdoors and using insect repellent products containing DEET or picaridin.
Cockroaches are disgusting, both visually and in terms of the grime and disease they harbor on their feet, thanks to their diet of waste and rot. If you want to ensure that you or your family don’t catch anything nasty from these critters, make sure to call pest control even if you see just one.
The source of many nightmares, the fear of spiders is one of the most common phobias in the world and, unfortunately, they’re also some of the most common bugs to spot in your home. This doesn’t have to be the case; however, if you call pest control; we can exterminate the spiders from your home and minimize the possibility of re-entry.
If you have vermin in your home, they will eat your food, spread dirt and disease, defecate and have babies; all things you want to avoid. As such, as soon as you see evidence of rodents, such as mice droppings, or chewed wires, you should call professional pest control.
More than being a nuisance, ants, like termites, can cause damage to your home and furniture, and can also bite- depending on the species. If you call pest control, you can have an ant-free home in no time, and we can give you tips on how to keep it that way.

Chiggers do not actually carry or transmit diseases to humans, but their bites can cause intense itching and discomfort. Red-bug’s, as you may call them, bites can also become infected if scratched, so it’s important to avoid scratching and take steps to soothe the itch, such as applying calamine lotion or taking an antihistamine. Additionally, mite bites can sometimes be mistaken for other insect bites or rashes, so it’s important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen.

I have been using their service for a little over a year and it’s been great. They’re very professional and the technician’s do a thorough job.
Used Mantis for a little over a year now, and have always had the same service individual (Jake) for each visit who is always super helpful, professional, and quick to assist with out of band service requests and/or questions.
Mantis is great quality at a reasonable prices. I've used them for about a year and my insect issues are non-existent. Scheduling is a breeze and they come when they say they will come. Never been an issue having a technician come out between regular service intervals as well. Derek was super polite, professional and punctual. In addition to him taking care of the wasps nests, he even applied a granular barrier in the event rain washed out the spray application. Overall, a highly satisfied customer!
Jason did a fantastic job. Called to say he was able to come earlier in the day if it worked out for us. He explained everything that he was doing and the expected outcome of the service. Professional and easy to talk with.
