Preventaive Pest Tips

Preventative Pest Tips

The best management is to prevent the ticks from occurring in the home, kennel, or dog run. Consult a veterinarian regarding tick prevention for your dog. Preventing ticks from feeding on the dog is essential to manage the ticks and protect the health of the animal. If ticks are found feeding, the ticks should be removed using forceps rather than your fingers, and should be removed slowly, using a straight, pulling motion. Be careful to remove all portions of the mouthparts, as they are covered in backward-facing spines to help keep the tick attached to the host. Discovering the infestations early on will help in reducing the tick population. Regular inspection and grooming of dogs is the best way to prevent infestations from occurring. However, if an infestation is occurring inside of the home, a professional pest management company, such as Hulett Environmental Services, should be consulted for a proper inspection and treatment.
