Signs and Symptoms of Ticks’ Presence
You will hardly detect the presence of a tick, except when attached to a pet or a person. Before the attachment, you will most likely find them in warm, moist areas where they feed. Tick bites in human are common around the armpit, along hairlines, and the groin. For pets, they can be found anywhere, but more common around the armpits, tails, toes, and ears.
So far they are not attached to a host, you will most likely find ticks outdoors. So, your focus during treatment should be your yard, your pets, and yourself. Outdoor treatments can be done by using a plant-friendly outdoor pesticide to spray your whole yard, including the shrubbery, bushes, and tree bases. You can keep your pets safe by spraying them with a pet-friendly repellant whenever they are exposed to areas where are more likely to be present – tall grass or in the woods. You can also prevent tick bites by spraying your pet and yourself before and after all outdoor activities.
