Employee Of The Month

Fast Action Pest Control Honors TY Madkins as employee of the month January 2017

Hello my name is Ty Madkins.
I’m truly honored to be apart of the Fast Action team. They are an outstanding company that provide you with all the tools to be successful and knowledgeable as a pest control specialist. One of my favorite things about this job is getting to meet new people from all walks of life. I strive everyday to go above and beyond giving quality customer service, taking pride in building personable relationships with my customers.


I was born and raised in Oakland, Ca. I started playing baseball in Elementary school and that’s when I discovered my love and passion for all things baseball. My friends and I used to go sit in the bleachers and watch the Oakland A’s games, back when tickets were only a $1. As an adult, my love for baseball never went away and I’m now the volunteer President of Sacramento Parkway Little League.


When I’m not on the clock, you can find me out working on the baseball fields getting ready for the new season, volunteering and passing out clothes for the homeless, and raising and hanging out with my 3 awesome boys. Trying to juggle work, volunteering, and still finding time to be Superdad surely has its challenges, but I meet each one with patience and determination. I try my best to be a good role model for my boys by working hard, staying humble, and being kind and giving back to others.

Have you noticed lots of yellow jackets lately ? Maybe you dont know what those are but you assume you have had lots of wasps or bees in your yard ? Well your not alone, we have had countless calls from customers and non customers and there seems to be an overload of these yellow jackets/wasps.
Summer is normally high season in any year for these aggressive stingers but there appears to be a bumper crop this year in Northern California, likely a function of abundant winter rains and temperate spring conditions that allowed new colonies to proliferate around the region. The mild, moist spring allowed a large crop of queens to establish nests that survived the first vulnerable weeks, Rain-fueled vegetation growth, in turn, spawned abundant wasp prey, allowing colonies to grow and continue to produce new larvae, churning out thousands of bugs per nest.
Be careful trying to handle this on your own as these yellow jackets/wasps can sting MULTIPLE times unlike the bee which can sting once and it will die. If you have questions or need assistance give us a call 916 714 7274 or 916 205 0687, you can ask for Jesse if you have questions or concerns.

How To Safely And Easily Remove A Tick
Finding a tick attached to your skin can be a scary experience; however, there is no need to panic. In the instance of blacklegged deer ticks, most do not carry disease, and those that do typically need to feed for an average of 36 to 48 hours before they can successfully transmit dangerous bacteria. Therefore, your chances of contracting Lyme disease – or any other tick-borne illness – are greatly reduced if you remove a tick using proper technique within the first 24 hours. Remember, too, that doctors have a much greater success rate in treating and curing early-diagnosed cases on Lyme disease, so prompt action is needed. Read on to learn how to remove a tick.

Tick Removal Using The Tweezer Method

The tweezer technique is by far the most common method for removing ticks. In fact, it’s endorsed by organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (for humans), and the Human Society and the ASPCA (for pets). If executed properly, the tweezer method can be a simple, safe and effective process for tick removal. There are also several devices on the market to help remove a tick, but a plain set of fine-tipped tweezers should do the trick.

Follow these simple steps for a successful tick removal:

1)Stay calm and gently pull back any hair from around the tick, exposing the skin near the tick/bite.
2)Locate the head of the tick, grasp it as close to the skin as possible using fine-tipped tweezers and gently squeeze. Do not grab the tick’s body, as this can increase the chance of injecting the tick’s blood into the skin.
3)Pull outward in a straight motion until the pressure pulls out the head of the tick. Do not twist or wiggle the tick, as that may tear the head off, leaving it lodged in the skin.
4)Once removed, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with soap and water. You can also use rubbing alcohol or an iodine scrub.
5)Ticks should then be flushed down a toilet or wrapped tightly in tissue before disposing in a closed receptacle. Do not try and crush them. Saving the tick for testing is generally not recommended, as ticks are rarely tested for specific diseases. However, testing a tick is an effective way to identify the species and any related disease risks. For instance, the dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) looks nothing like the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis), and while the latter transmit Lyme disease, the dog tick does not. On the other hand the dog tick can transmit other infections such as tularemia and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
6)If you develop a rash or fever within several weeks of removing a tick, see your doctor. Be sure to tell the doctor about your recent tick bite, when the bite occurred, and where you most likely acquired the tick. If you have saved the tick, be sure to bring it to show the doctor.
What Not to Do When Removing a Tick

The CDC suggests avoiding folklore remedies for removing a tick from the skin, such as “painting” the tick with nail polish, suffocating it with petroleum jelly, or using a heat source like matches to burn the tick and make it detach from the skin.

Your goal is to remove the tick as quickly as possible, so don’t ever ignore ticks in the hopes that they will detach from the skin and fall off on their own. Also, try and avoid crushing the tick’s body when removing it.
