TICKS ON DOGS
Ticks are an external parasite that lives off of the blood of mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians. When ticks are in need of feeding they search out prey by heat sensors. When something warm passes them, they attach by clinging to clothing, fur. Once they have decided on their host, the tick moves to an area that has little hair as this will make it easier for them to feed. The most common places ticks are found on dogs is within the ears, as well as the skin around the ears and lips. Ticks then insert their mouthparts into the skin and begin feeding. They will only dislodge once they are completely finished feeding which is also when the adult female will fall from the host and look for shelter. The female then lays eggs and once the eggs are born the female dies. Ticks have 4 stages to their life cycle: egg, larva, nymph and adult. The lifecycle is usually completed within 2 months. Natural Chemistry provides the solution with a full line of products specifically designed for killing ticks on dogs as well as around the home.
