As proud Tennesseans, we all know that not only are ticks a nuisance, but they can infect us with a range of unpleasant diseases and illnesses. These nasty little pests use their tenacious grip to latch onto just about anything with a pulse. Combined with the fact that they’re extremely tough to detect, ticks represent a formidable foe for any Southerner.
In this guide, we’ll cover common diseases that are transmitted by ticks in Tennessee and how to keep the blood-suckers out of your yard and home and off of your kids and pets.
Summer’s in full swing, bringing its usual bounty of barbecues, pool parties, and other (slightly sweaty) festivities.

Read ahead for tips on how to turn the tide against these bloodsucking pests, so you can get back to enjoying the burgers and bathing suits.
At U.S. Pest, it’s our job to keep you, your family, and your home safe by eliminating the types of undesirable bugs and critters that are commonly referred to as “pests.” However, the term “pest” is highly subjective. You might consider your annoying coworker or your loud neighbor to be a pest, but that doesn’t mean that we can come “eliminate” them for you. Likewise, not every bug that you find bothersome should be exterminated. Some of these tiny misunderstood organisms do a lot more to help us than hurt us, and one specific group of them needs our help: bees.

Right now the termites, spiders and mosquitoes are gearing up for a big season…but the honeybees and other pollinators like our bees need to be protected. Their pollination of flowers and food is essential to our survival. That’s why at U.S. Pest we’ve developed a Bee Awareness Initiative to make sure that the honeybees are protected. In fact, U.S. Pest is the only pest control company in Tennessee that’s bee friendly. We’ve changed the way we protect your home so we can also protect the bee’s home and eliminate the bugs you don’t want.
We here at U.S. Pest are going to protect the bees through our employee and customer education and our pest control methods and applications.
