Some Ticks will bite and feed on humans and are carriers of various diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tick-borne relapsing fever and Tularemia to name a few. However, Brown Dog ticks rarely bite humans. If you suspect you have been bitten by a tick, talk to your doctor about concerns and/or treatment that may be necessary.
With Halloween just around the corner, its time for larger-than-life creepy, crawly creatures skittering across lawns, lurking in dark alleyways and dropping out of nowhere to frighten their hapless victims.
Keep on top of your pets’ pest potentials this spring and summer, by ensuring that your four-legged friends visit the vet for flea and tick prevention treatments or by purchasing effective topical drop treatments and ingested flea and tick products on the market.
