Ticks 101

Ticks vary in shape or size but are usually about 1/16 to 1/8 inches long. Many times they are a dark orange-brown with dark reddish brown legs. Their bodies are flat and shaped like a tear drop. Ticks transmit Lyme disease which infects more than 10,000 people a year and is the most significant tick-borne disease in the U.S. This is a disease that also requires medical attention. In many cases, ticks get into homes by attaching themselves onto your clothes or even dogs if you take them in a wooded area. They will feed on as much blood as they can whether it’s from dogs, cats, or humans. When you remove a tick from anything, you want to be careful not to crush them because that will release fluids that could transmit diseases.

Signs of an Infestation

Having a tick infestation could be extremely stressful, especially if you don’t contact a professional right away. It may seem like the ticks are everywhere and rapidly reproducing, which is most often the case. The most common sign of having a tick infestation is just seeing these pests around. They might be on your dog, clothing, or even yourself. These creatures get into homes mostly by sticking on to your dog while you take them for a walk in a wooded area and then hanging on until they make their way into your home. Some things that can help in preventing an infestation is making sure to check your dog before they enter your home, make sure cracks around your home are sealed up, and clean out any bird or rodent nests.
