What are ticks?

Ticks belong to the arachnida family, the same as spiders and scorpions. Ticks are a blood sucking ectoparasite that causes skin lesions as well as disease pathogens such as Lyme disease. Some species of ticks can cause Rocky Mountain spotted fever in dogs.

Why do I have ticks?

It could be that your yard is in need of some maintenance such as cutting back long grassed areas, or bushes need pruning. You may live near a wooded area that is the prime habitat for Lone Star ticks to live in.

Getting rid of ticks in your home or structure

Ticks like to hide in shrubs and grass, so in order to keep them away it would be beneficial to keep all shrubbery trimmed and grass maintained short.

What can I do in the future to prevent ticks?

  • Keep any pets away from wooded areas.
  • Ensure you pets are up to date with their flea and tick medicine from the vet.
  • Keep all shrubs pruned back and grass cut.
