|Advise on Ticks|
Ticks live in grass, bushes, undergrowth...
They drop or climb on the host (the host is located with the heat it gives off).
Then they attach (in the thin skinned places), inserting their mouth-parts in the skin. They secrete substances which weaken blood capillaries ; the capillaries break, the tick sucks the blood inside.
There are male and female ticks. After mating with the male, female ticks lay thousands of eggs and then die. From the eggs emerge larvae, which become nymphs and then adults.
Tick-borne diseasesIt's important to remove ticks fixed in the skin as soon as possible, because ticks can transmit serious diseases to animals and people:
· in people : rickettsiosis, Lyme's disease, tick-borne encephalitis, tick-fever...
· in animals : babesiosis, ehrlichiosis and Lyme's disease in the dog, babesiosis in the horse, haemobartonellosis in the cat, babesiosis and ehrlichiosis in the cattle.
· For more information, please consult your vet
