Tick Pest Control Treatment Procedures
Inspect all accessible areas of the property and your pets. We will check grassy areas, wooded areas, excess vegetation, gardens, garden beds, pet beds, cracks and crevices. We identify and check for their presence in other problem areas. We’ll locate all ticks within your property. That’s our guarantee.
We spray chemical insecticides to treat all surroundings areas including near where your pets sleep. The pesticide we use to effectively eliminate the tick eggs is a synthetic pyrethroid which is odourless and non toxic. We also use a insecticide formulation to ensure we kill the eggs and nesting sites.
You can also buy tick treatment from your local vet or pet store. Many veterinarians will recommend repellent products like Frontline, advantix, Nexgard or Seresto. They are available in topical or oral and contain permethrin and imidacloprid.
For future protection and complete elimination requires regular cleaning and monitoring of your pets. Successful eradication requires you to monitor your pets and have them treated on at intervals.
What are Ticks?
Ticks are very small arachnids. They are tiny, and they feed on blood as a means of sustaining their complex life cycles. Ticks, bed bugs and carpet beetles are similar in appearance.
A ticks nest can house hundreds or thousands of small tick eggs. A cluster of eggs is only about 10 mm long.
Ticks have an interesting body makeup. They grow in size as they feed on more blood, and they can grow to the size of a marble when they reach their largest. When a tick has fed enough, you notice that it becomes bluish-green in color.
They bite humans and animals, and they’re particularly fond of warm areas of the body. Unlike many other bite-prone bugs, ticks can remain attached to your body after biting you. A tick can stay attached to you for up to 10 days without interruption.
Ticks also live mostly outdoors. They’re mostly found in shrubs, trees, grass, and bushy areas. You or your pet can track them and bring them indoors. They can also live on possums, bush turkeys rabbits, rodents, mice, rats, Kangaroos, bandicoots, wallabies and other mammals.
There are about 70 species of ticks in Australia. The most common are the Paralysis tick and the brown dog tick.
Types of Tick Species
Australian Paralysis Tick – Ixodes holocyclus
This is a dangerous parasite to pets, humans, native mammals and livestock. These paralysis ticks are commonly found in Sydney NSW.
They have a oval seed shaped body that is flattened. Interestingly the larvae have 6 legs whilst the nymphs and adults have 8 legs. It is common for domestic pets to become infested as their seek out a host to develop their life cycle.
They start as small larvae (seed/grass) around .5 mm in length. After host feedings they moult into the nymph stage and grow to 1mm. Only the adult female bites people and pets. Their natural predators are insectivorous birds, bees and wasps.
Brown Dog Tick
While the black-legged species is the most feared, the brown dog tick is the most popular. These arachnids prefer dogs. But, they can attach themselves to you as well.
The brown dog tick is reddish-brown, and it has a narrower shape than most others.
Ticks cause health problems.
Ticks suck blood from their hosts. When they bite, they can spread several parasites and bacteria to both humans and animals. Many people who get bitten by ticks can develop flu-like symptoms – fevers, headaches, muscle aches.
You can also get diseases from a tick bite. These include Lyme disease, Colorado tick fever, tick typhus, encephalitis.
Some people suffer allergic reactions and anaphylaxis after getting bitten by a tick. When a tick bites it injects toxic saliva. In most cases it will cause mild redness, irritation, itching and some localized swelling. Some severe can cause tick paralysis and anaphylactic shock. In rare cases it can cause partial facial paralysis known as bell’s palsy which is a palsy of the facial nerve. This can happen in both humans and animals, including your cat or dog. There are also other serious symptoms that require medical attention.
