Tick Control: Common Tick Borne Diseases, Bacteria & Illnesses
Ticks have been plaguing mankind with transmittal diseases, the most common being Lyme disease. Others include Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Ehrlichia. Ticks are capable of transmitting diseases. They are not born with them but rather generally get infected by feeding off a previously hosted animal that was infected with a contaminated blood stream. Related tick-borne illnesses have greatly increased in the U.S. in recent years. Not only being a threat to people, ticks are also known to attach to pets, and can transmit diseases into their blood as well. If a blood sucker is found on your pet, the best thing to do is take it to your local veterinarian for treatment.
Tick Classification & Life Cycle
Ticks are grouped in the arachnid family, being more closely related to spiders and scorpions than other insect classifications. Ticks have four stages in their life time. They are first eggs. Female ticks can lay between 3,000-6,000 eggs but usually die shortly after. The eggs hatch into larvae. They then mature into nymphs and finally into adulthood.
Tick Removal from Humans, Dogs, Cats & Other Animals
Being that they have no preference to their hosts, ticks will attach themselves onto people, pets, birds, reptiles and any domestic or wild animals. Although, ticks seem to be more commonly found on dogs than cats. Initially, ticks may appear as a small dark speck but on further examination will be clearly visualized as a tick. If a tick is found attached to you or a pet, do not remove the tick by hand. Using tweezers, gently grasp the tick as close to the skin as possibly and carefully remove it. If you are hesitant, contact an appropriate medical professional.
