Ticks Carry Diseases
Ticks are one of the more common and troublesome pests for both humans and domestic animals, like dogs and cats. They also are a threat to the health and well-being of both people and their pets, as they are known to spread several different debilitating diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. These diseases are spread because of the Tick’s method of sustenance; ticks, like fleas and bed bugs, are parasitic insects that survive by eating the blood of whatever animal they find themselves on.
Where Do Ticks Live?
Ticks are usually found in wooded areas, and often will attach themselves to any animals or humans that pass by them. Their mouth parts are structured to be able to hold on to a host despite most attempts to remove them, and once they have bitten a host they will stay attached to them until they have had their fill of blood. This often will lead to them displaying a bloated appearance and being readily visible even through thick fur.
How To Get Rid Of Ticks
Getting Rid Of & Removing Ticks – Some Helpful Tips
• Although it’s tempting if you find a tick on you to try and immediately pull it off with your fingers, this is in fact the wrong thing to do. If you try to do this the tick’s body is likely to separate from its head, leaving the mouthparts still embedded in your skin. This obviously is unpleasant and can facilitate the spread of tick borne diseases. The best thing to do is to get a pair of tweezers and gently pull the tick starting from the head and lifting it straight out.
