How to Identify Ticks and What Is Their General Behavior?

Ticks usually measure between 2 and 6 millimeters in length. They are reddish-brown and have eight legs. Most people would recognise the tick immediately after noticing its presence. The blood-thirsty critters are usually hiding under fallen leaves or in tall grass, and they can hop surprisingly far for their size when they see their victim passing by.

 

There are three stages in a tick’s life, and it can grow up to 200 times during adolescence compared to their size during the larvae period. Keep in mind that ticks feed not only on warm-blooded victims, such as people and pets, but on cold-blooded ones, too.

How Harmful Could Ticks Possibly Be?

Ticks are a real menace, as they are capable of carrying bacteria, viruses, and numerous diseases that could be extremely harmful to humans and their pets. The diseases and everything nasty a tick may carry is transferred to its offspring, meaning that a tick infestation is equal to an infection reservoir. Fever, encephalitis, and even Lyme disease are among the potential threats to human health carried by ticks.

What Can You Do to Prevent a Tick Infestation?

Apart from using some kind of repellent, you could prevent tick infestation by checking yourself and your dog before entering your home. Ticks could be stuck on a piece of clothing, but if you happen to find one on your skin, you are better off seeking medical attention instead of removing it yourself.

What clients are saying

Antony Dixey

Toxic respond have been great from the get go… They saw a post of mine on Facebook showing bites on my 2yr old son and that we didn’t know for 100% what they were from or where to find the bugs.
They offered us a free inspection which found fleas in and around the home left by previous tenants.
After sorting us with a great price they came out two days later and worked there magic around the whole of our house. Two weeks later and so far so good no more bite on our lil man and no fleas seen either. Very happy and would recommend them highly.
Keep up the good work guys.

This guy was so honest I couldn’t believe my luck. He could have lied and tell me that I needed lots of work, instead he provided me with practical and down to earth advice on how to proceed. You don’t find many business like that these days. Thanks for all the information and support. If you want reliable and honest advice on work you need , call toxic response.

I’m a single mum of two young children and was at the end of my tether with these brown carpet beetles after trying everything I contacted this company after finding them on google and they literally came straight away to give a free inspection. Whilst they were here they offered to do the job there and then which has made me so happy. I had to leave them to go to a dentist appointment and they moved all the furniture and left my flat immaculate. I’m so so grateful thank you so much me and my kids can sleep tonight without worrying. Very professional very understanding and very very trustworthy. I 100% would recommend this company without hesitation thank you so much ?
