Lyme tick

Ticks are parasites that feed on the blood of almost any animal, including humans. They have eight legs, like spiders do but they are much smaller in size. It is common to find ticks on dogs and it is said that a dog gets infected with ticks at least once in its lifetime. They are more active from May to July, when the environmental conditions are ideal for their development.

Ticks are considered as garden pests, because they are often found in tall grass where they wait until they find the chance to attack a host passing by. A tick can transfer through physical contact or can even stalk the host.

Tick bites can cause anaemia, paralysis, various diseases or even death to weak animals. This is the reason why pest management is necessary for the dog tick in an early stages, before thousands of them attach themselves to your dog. Ticks bites can transmit diseases from animals to human, the most common of which is the tick lyme disease. Early symptoms of lymes disease include tiredness, chills, fever, headaches, muscle or joint pain and blurred vision.

The tick prefers warm, moist and dark environments. For this reason, if it attaches to a human, it is usually found in such parts of the body, like the crotch, the armpit or the back of the head in children. Even though tick bites do not cause pain, tick removal is necessary because of the risk of tick disease, which is more likely to occur the longer the tick stays attached to the host.
