Ticks in the Home
Ticks invade our houses through hitchhiking inside on pets, clothing or people. Thus, it is important to inspect pets and our children to ensure that there are no ticks and to cleanse any clothing that may contain ticks. It can be a real problem if there are suitable host living in the attic or crawl space.
Frequent pet inspections can decrease the chance of your pet contracting a tick-borne disease. Feeding ticks should be removed as soon as they are discovered. Many treatments are also available from the local vet for tick control.
