Ticks most often feed on pets but some will feed on humans. Tick removal should be done thoroughly and cautiously. Ticks should never be crushed when attached to a human or animal, as this will trigger a release of dangerous fluids into the blood stream.
Very slowly remove ticks with tweezers without crushing the body. Clean the areas with extreme care and be sure to disinfect. Any sign of infection should be treated by a medical professional immediately.
Most ticks hitch a ride inside on house pets, however they may find an opportunity to nest indoors. Homes with bird or rodent cages are very susceptible to tick nesting.
If you suspect your home may have a tick infestation, call Four Seasons Pest Control as soon as possible. Tick bites can be extremely dangerous to humans and animals alike and risk of tick bites should be taken seriously.
