Ticks can be very annoying and a nuisance for not just you, but your family and pets as well. These can infest your home and your lawn. The biggest worry these hitchhikers carry is the vulnerability for many harmful blood-borne diseases, like Lyme disease and others which can even prove fatal for your beloved pets. Ticks find their hosts by detecting animals’ breath and body odors, or by sensing body heat, moisture and vibrations. They are incapable of flying or jumping, but many tick species wait in a position known as “questing”. While questing, ticks hold onto leaves and grass by their third and fourth pair of legs.
How to keep such annoying creatures at bay
Ticks being sensitive to dry conditions, you should first ensure your property does not seem to be an attractive ground. Most well-maintained lawns seldom face this problem and ticks do not thrive in short vegetation. Try cleaning up items that can prove potential breeding grounds for such nuisance causing insects. Lawn’s affected with ticks can be treated with tick-resistant insecticides, where one or two applications per season are usually enough for keeping these away.
Stray dogs and cats are often carriers of such ticks, so try keeping your home bred pets away from such free-roaming animals. For pets infected with ticks, it’s always advised to contact a vet soon who can help with the tick treatment. Vacuuming indoors occasionally can be a great step in keeping ticks away.
