Flea And Tick Control
A flea is an insect; a tick is an arachnid.
Facts About Fleas And Ticks
- Ticks are arachnids. Meaning, they are more closely related to spiders and scorpions than insects.
- Ticks have four life stages: egg, larva (infant), nymph (immature), and adult (mature).
- There about 850 tick species, some of which are capable of transmitting diseases such as Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
- Ticks feed on the blood of their host — humans, birds, reptiles, and wild and domestic mammals.
- Ticks may appear as a small dark speck on your pet’s fur.
- Tick infestations are more common in dogs than cats.
- Ticks are generally not born with disease agents. They acquire them during feeding and pass them along onto other animals during subsequent feedings.
- Pets may contract multiple diseases from a single tick bite.
- The brown dog tick and the American dog tick are the most common carriers of disease among dogs.
- Never remove a tick with your bare hand. Instead, using tweezers, grasp the tick close to the skin and pull gently. Pet MD
