DOG TICKS AND FLEAS
Dog Ticks can get on your clothing and these linen blood-sucking parasites cause itchy bites and are usually found on household pets. Ticks may be found in areas such as grasslands, forests and human homes. Once hatched all stages of a tick’s life cycle feed on blood.
What we do
– Your dog is constantly scratching themselves on their neck, thighs and around the tail.
– Reddy-brown fleas (usually about 2mm long) crawling on your pet’s coat.
– Fine black droppings also known as “flea dirt” on your pet’s skin.
– Flea dirt is noticeable on your pets bedding, in your carpets and on sofasur
Inspection & Identification
We will provide an inspection of the property both inside and outside since ticks can be brought inside on clothing and by pets. The inspection will include identification of the species of ticks.
We will provide information on tick habits, behaviours, habitats and the life cycle. We will also advise how to recognise ticks and how to prevent tick exposure.
We will also provide recommendations to contact your medical professional or veterinarian for advice on using tick repellent and treatment products on your pet if required.
Tick Habitat Modifications
We may recommend how to modify tick habitat areas in shaded areas because exposing an area to sunlight will reduce moisture and decrease tick breeding further in their habitat, helping to eliminate them.
