FACTS ABOUT TICKS

Ticks are small external parasites living by hematophagy on the blood of mammals and birds. That means that they suck your blood to survive. Ticks extract the blood by cutting a hole in the host’s epidermis—the top layer of skin. After they’ve created the hole in your skin, they insert their hypostome—a part of their mouths. This keeps the blood from clotting, by excreting an anticoagulant. The more blood you produce, the fuller the ticket becomes.

Ticks are very recognizable. They have bodies that are divided into two primary sections: the anterior capitulum which contains the head and mouthparts; and the posterior idiosoma which contains eight legs, digestive tract, and reproductive organs. The body of any type of tick is teardrop shaped and can be a variety of colors but is normally brown. Ticks are quite small initially but will grow in size as they gorge themselves on blood.

HOW YOU GET TICKS

The most common way to end up with a tick infestation is by animals that live in your home, like dogs and cats, who can easily bring ticks into your house. Ticks love the warm climate of Coachella Valley, so you should always use tick spray on your pets.

Ticks often have a certain host that they prefer to latch onto and are usually named after that preferred host. So, you will find ticks species with names like deer tick, American dog tick, brown dog tick, etc. However, it is important to understand that once a tick loses a particular host, it will try to find another before long. Even though they may prefer one type of host, they will feed on anything with blood in it, including you.

Domestic animals pick the ticks up from outside and after feeding for a couple of days, the ticks will drop off and lay eggs. They look for tiny crevices to store their eggs, which means that the eggs are extremely hard to find and that you could soon have a large tick infestation in your home. Getting rid of a tick infestation takes time because eggs can hatch months later, long after you think you have the situation under control with other tick removal methods. Therefore any time you spot a tick, you should hire professional tick control services to remove them.

 

WHY EXTERMINATE TICKS

Ticks can carry a number of diseases that can be transferred to humans. Because they suck blood from both animals and humans, they can easily pick up diseases from one host and pass it on to the next. This is how a number of diseases are spread in Coachella Valley, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, Q fever, tularemia, tick paralysis, and meningoencephalitis. Obviously, these are all very serious conditions, which means that you need to hire professional tick control services to eradicate any ticks on your property or in your home.
