The Importance of Tick Control
Ticks are a small parasite that feeds off the blood of animals and they are often found in long grass, bushes, and freshly cut grass. It was once thought that ticks jump onto an unsuspecting animal host, however, this is not the case. Ticks require physical touch, waiting for an animal to brush up against them, then clinging onto its fur or clothing.
Tick control is an important part of pet care as these parasites can affect the health of your pet as well as your other family members. The ticks that are most commonly found in Ohio are American Dog Ticks, Deer Ticks, and Lone Star Ticks. They are carriers of many diseases such as Lyme Disease and the Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Side effects are numerous and can include nasty headaches, paralysis or even death, which makes this pest a huge threat.
