Tick Control

4/1/2015

As the snow melts and the temperature rises, ticks become more active. Ticks remain alive through the winter, when the temperatures reach 40°F and above they become active again. Ticks are small blood sucking parasites that feed on both animals and humans. Their lifecycle is complex and involves one or more species of animals as hosts.  A full blood meal for a tick can take 4-5 days, once full they drop off. While tick does drop off when full, disease can be spread in less than 24 hours. Ticks carry a number of serious diseases such as Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Erlichia Canis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
